Hey date twin! I wouldn’t go with any kind of master cleanse even with this far before your wedding. It might upset your stomach and it can take a long time to get regulated again. I think the best thing to do is count calories, eat lots of low cal, high fiber foods, and drink water with lemon juice. I’ve never tried a body wrap, but one of my friends did it the week before her wedding. I’m counting calories and doing Dance Off the Inches!, Wii Dance, and the Shake Weight!

the same thing just happened to me, so I feel your pain. I am trying to take out all sweets and go low-carb. My biggest problem is I work during the day, and I am at school 3 nights a week so I only have been working out 2-3 times a week. I don’t know that I have seen any results. I have major weight issues so I have only told a few people and praying things come together. 

Good luck, I’m sorry I can’t offer you any better advise.

My SO just got back into working out, so we’re doing it together.

MWF a small home workout with pushups, pullups, situps (i’m hoping to convince him to add some tricep dips).

TT a short run–turns out with the move we got WAY out of shape! Last summer I ran a half marathon, and last Thursday we ran 2 miles and was KILLER.

 

weekends–I may do some longer runs, he will take those as his rest day until we buy bikes and the weather gets warmer. 🙂

 

He has 10 or so pounds to go, I have 5 (ish).

I bought a new workout DVD from Amazon every month or so. It’s cheaper than a gym membership and it keeps things new and interesting. Some of my faves are Jillian Michael’s 30 Day Shred and anything with Jackie Warner. They both use circut training so the time just flys by!

We bought an ellipitcal machine for Christmas got it early part of January. Since the day we recieved it I have worked on it almost every day.  In fact yesterday was the most mileage I put on that thing. 5 miles which is an accomplishment for me.

My mom and I did a body wrap last year for my birthday and I have to say that it surprisingly worked! I lost like 20 inches all over my body. The only thing is, it can get pretty tight in there, so if you have any clausterphobic tendencies, I wouldnt reccomend it.

I plan on working out at the gym 3 days a week (30mins. min). And trying to incorporate at least 10mins of cardio everyday by being active in the house or walking up and down the stairs, ect..

I’d suggest weight watchers – you can do it online and track your eating.  I’m not a fan of cutting out foods, so it’s a good way to be able to eat all foods in proportion.  And this is just my opinion, but 3-4 hour workouts daily does not sound healthy or fun.  I think 1-1.5 hours x 5 days a week is more than effective.  Just my 2 cents – good luck

My co-worker is always on some kind of crazy diet. It takes a lot of discipline. Right now she is on a no sugar diet…. I think it lasts for 8 weeks, off for 3 weeks, then 8 weeks again. This is particularly hard because sugar is in almost everything!

For me, I’m just going to a bunch of fun classes at my gym. Zumba is my favorite! I also take a strength conditioning class and a cardio/strength combined class. I have a personal trainer that I see every other week (expensive). I’m not aiming to really lose weight though. I may lose inches, which is what you need, but will probably stay the same weight if not gain more.

I am doing the Flirty Girl Fitness DVDs about three days a week. =) It’s a good and fun workout and helps you to feel somewhat sexy while doing it! (I don’t feel so gross and sweaty afterwards lol)
