I had my first fitting today, and the dress was tight. It is wearable, but the corset gaps near the bottom. The seamstress was really nice, they can move the panel over a bit, so hopefully that will help take care of things. I’m just really bummed…when I tried the dress on a few months ago, it fit perfectly.
So, I am looking for some healthy breakfast/lunch/dinner options. I’m going to start working out again, and I went to the grocery store and stocked up on some fruits. I am a picky eater (vegetables aren’t my thing…which that should really change). If anybody has any suggestions on things to do, I am all ears!

@keepsmiling19: Planks are AWESOME. Do 30 seconds, both sides and facing front, each, every day. You’ll notice a difference!

I find cutting down on carbs helps! Eliminate all sodas, juices, etc and just drink water… And plenty of it! Good luck!

Oatmeal for breakfast fills you up, add fruit.
Use beans and legumes instead of meat, they fill you up too.
Do snack, on healthy foods whenever the munchies comes knocking.
Try drinking a glass of iced water before you eat, you will eat less.

All great suggestions!! Thanks everyone! I have the Just Dance game for the Wii, I think I will pop that in.
@sapphiregirl: Do you include diet sodas in with that, too? I drink a few of them a day…I could definitely cut back on those.
Thanks for all of these great suggestions! Keep ’em coming, everyone!

Calorie-wise, diet sodas won’t hurt you much but there’s studies that say your body registers artificial sugar the same as the real stuff. This tends to slow down your metabolism and causes cravings which leads to over eating. If you’re a big soda drinker you can just try to keep it to a can or two a day and I’m sure you’ll notice a difference.
I would just try to eat as natural as possible but don’t deprive yourself as that might backfire! Try to find something active to do everyday, even if it is just for 10 minutes. Any little thing does really help!
edit: a lot of people on here seem to like Jillian Michael’s 30 Day Shred. It’s just 20 minutes a day!

@keepsmiling19: Drinking a few diet sodas a day is not a good thing! Even though diet sodas have 0 calories, have you ever looked at the ingredients in a diet coke? It’s full of SO many chemicals, half of which I have no clue what they are! That stuff is not as good for your body as water is.
Fitness/health is one of my passions and about a year and a half ago I drastically cut out processed foods from my diet and I lost about 7 pounds. You should eat whole foods (when I say “whole” I mean things that only have a few ingredients in them, tops). For example, for breakfast you can have eggs, fruit, coffee. For lunch you can have a salad with lettuce, spinach, grilled chicken or some other protein (shrimp, fish, whatever), whatever other veggies you want, and you can put a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil and red wine vinegar on it. For dinner you can have a baked potato with some oregano and a protein. For snacks you can eat fruit, nuts, cheese (like string cheese).
Try to stick with the whole foods versus the processed foods. Instead of a granola bar, eat an apple. Instead of diet coke, drink water or green tea.
What do you do for your workouts?
