Right now I do intervals in the treadmill and elliptical for a half hour each. Then 2 leg days on the machines at 50 reps a machine at medium weight and same for arms, chest and back on the machines. What else should I be doing?? I am feeling clueless..

Switching up your workouts every 6 weeks helps. You could try some cardio classes like zumba or turbo

How's your diet? No matter what you do for exercise, if your diet is bad it's going to make it hard to get what you want.

Mostly raw, always vegan. Protein shake and fruit for breakfast. Handful of almonds and an apple for a snack or coconut milk yogurt and fruit. 3-4 servings of fruit and veggies and quinoa avocado and greens bowl for lunch and mega giant salad for dinner or soup. I have IBS so I fear eating poorly. When I do, I pay..

If you turn that around,build muscle first it will help you slim down. The muscle will use the adipose tissue(fat) as fuel in rebuilding itself . I would recommend doing circuit training involving as many muscles as possible . This will further your building and losing goals.You can do this every other day for awhile,if done a max intensity it is a cardio workout in itsself.Involve the larger muscle groups,thighs ,chest and back. Ie;Leg press,leg curl ,bench press,incline bench press,rowns and pulldowns.If you need further help i can be more detailed. Good luck and dont give up .This is a lifestyle,a marthon not a sprint..and BTW I have UC so I understand

A: Squat, Bench, Dead lift
B: Squat, Press, Row

Lift weights 3 times a week, alternating the workouts between A and B, and with a day of rest in between. This is a variation of Starting Strength, which I recommend greatly. You can keep doing cardio if you wish, but nothing too strenuous since your legs will really get a good workout from the squats/dead lifts.
