Diet: MyFitnessPal, counting calories (so easy with MFP so long as you are vigilant about weighing everything you eat) and using a Polar heart rate monitor to keep track of exercise.  I didn’t cut anything out of my diet, just ate within my calorie limits.  It’s true that this did improve my eating but I still ate chocolate, cheesecake, Doritos and the other good stuff.

Start weight: 147 pounds (I’m 5’3″ so although I wasn’t too overweight, I was too heavy for my height and frame)

Amount lost in two months: 14 pounds (then another ten pounds over the next few months)

Exercise: I began running again, two or three times a week, and I also play roller derby and train for that twice a week.  However with MFP you eat back at least some of your exercise calories so while I got heaps fitter and more toned, it didn’t have a direct impact on my weight loss.

Diet: What plan did you follow (ex: paleo): The moderation diet (follows the principle of eating small portions of good food (lean meats, lots of veggies and fruits and nuts, healthy whole grains) along with treats on a bi-weekly basis of whatever you want so that you’re not depriving yourself of anything, just being smarter about it. Also, I drink only water with lemon, alllllll day long. <br /><br />– Starting Weight: 180<br /><br />– How much you lost in 2 months: 20 lbs (my current weight is 160 lbs<br /><br />– Any excercise? I did the 30 day shred for 10 days, combined with an additional 30 minutes of walking/day. Now, I just do hiking but I do interval running/walking on my hikes as well, which are typically in the 30-40 minute range in length. My secret? I NEVER MISS A DAY. I  squeeze it in, no matter what. My favourite is waking up 45 minutes early and doing my exercise then! And if I have time in the evening, I’ll add another shorter walk in.

Diet: 12 week body transformation. (1200-1300 cals a day, just your typical healthy eating really. They had meal plans and recipes to follow.)

Starting Weight 87.1kg (192 pounds)

How much you lost in 2 months  – approx 7.5 kg (around 17 pounds). I’m insulin resistant though which makes weight loss a bit harder. Other doing the program lost more quicker, others less etc.

Any excercise? Yes, lots.  6 days a week of cardio (lots of interval training), weights, core etc.

MeandMyLouboutins:  I have this really weird mental trick for eating in moderation. Its basically before I make/eat a meal, I ask myself if the overweight, fat, sluggish version of me would eat this. If the answer is yes, I go back to the drawing board. If no, I chomp away. <br />—————————————————————————————————–<br />E.G. I am staring at nutella. The fat me would easily spread that baby on two slices of disgusting white bread and chomp away. So my internal voice says “NO” and I grab 1 slice of spelt bread, spread on some organic honey, grab a bowl of cherries, and on my way I go.

Diet: No secret pill or fad diet here. Just 1200 CLEAN calories, also factoring in calories burned on training days. Appx. 50% protein, 25% complex carbs and 25% healthy fats… Give or take, depending on the day. Appx. 5-6 meals per day total.

Starting Weight: 180 lbs at 5’7-8… After training for appx. 9 months now, I can say that my biggest transformation was during the first two to three months! Currently training for a competition, so it’s a VERY slow and sometimes painstaking (but, rewarding!) process.

How much you lost in 2 months: appx 5 lbs first week and an average of 2lbs a week thereafter… So, about ~20lbs.

Usually an average max. of 2lbs a week lost is the ideal and most sustainable longterm.

Any excercise? Yes! Did at least (2) one-hour hardcore days of calisthenics/plyometrics with a trainer, and 2-3 more days of HIIT on the elliptical on my own. After I lost 30lbs, I dropped the trainer and upped the intensity (as my body became more resistant/conditioned). So, I now weight lift heavy 4 days a week, and do HIIT 3-4 days a week

Once I upped my workout intensity, I gradually upped my calories to 1400-2000, depending on the day. 

I am currently much more lean and muscular now, but here was my “before” picture, and my 2-3 month progress photo, so that you can see how drastically a body can really change in what seems like a very small amount of time.

I just wanted to be healthier, more active and tone/lose a few points. 

Diet: No change.  I’ve always generally eaten small portions and realtively healthy.  Not much junk food, basic meals (a meat, veggie, seasoning on rice), rarely boxed meals or eating out.  I suck at diets and just don’t have the drive to really stick to a plan and limit calories.

Starting Weight: 130<br />

How much you lost in 2 months 5-6<br />

Any excercise?  Started running, couch to 5k, 3x (about 8-10 miles/week), inured my leg though, so now eliptical and weights 4x a week.  <br />
