I have hired a personal trainer that I meet with 3 times a week for an hour each session. On top of that I do cardio on my own for 30-45 minutes 3 days a week. I used to be very athletic but after college when I started working behind a desk I deffinetly noticed the weight gain. I am not trying to lose weight just for the wedding, but for my overall health and hopefully long life.

I am feeling great and noticing the changes mind/body/spirit. Once you get yourself a ruitine it is amazing how easy it gets.

Good luck to all of you ladies, I hope each of you reach your goals.

I’m fairly active anyways. But I am trying harder with lifting heavier weights and taking 2 yoga classes weekly to get buffed up!

I don’t think I’ll start dieting until a few months in advance! I still have a while to go 🙂

Yeah I’m eating better as well. Sticking to whole grain carbs and lots of fruits and veggies. although I still need a little chocolate everyday 🙂

I am keeping track of my daily caloric intake using SparkPeople.  It is really helpful – it helped me figure out I wasn’t getting enough protein each day (which is why I was starving)!  I highly recommend it!

I’ve been lazy about the gym.  I am supposed to go 5 times a week but can’t get myself out of the house on weeknights!  I vow to start in March.

I have been trying to diet by eating less sugar and carbs.  I think that is working, though I still want to tone up a lot in the next 2 months.

Good luck ladies!

I use SparkPeople as well, and I’ve lost 17 pounds since August. 3 more to go to my goal weight! I wish I had a little bit more time to lift weights; I only tend to get one weight session in a week. But today was such a gorgeous day that my co-worker and I walked to lunch!

I’ve been running 4 miles 3-4 times a week which has been great to get me back in shape from my soccer playing days. I don’t "diet" but I eat eat healthy. 

As I’ve always been pretty active, for me its just about deciding to do it and get myself to the gym.  If you can just get yourself there, you will work out and see results!  Good Luck Everyone!

FI and I started eating better in general — which was actually pretty easy since we love us some steamed broccoli– and hitting the gym 3 days a week. We started this all in September and so far I’ve lost about 16 pounds! (A skeptical little part of me, however, believes that the weight loss is due to me going off birth control…I hope not!)

Haha, steamed broccoli is so helpful for dieting or just eating healthy!  I love the prepackaged broccoli florets at Trader Joe’s – just pop it in the microwave.  They are so filling!

I just tried on a pair of skinny jeans that I bought MONTHS ago but couldn’t even get past my hips – they fit today!  I can’t believe it.

Although the number on the scale isn’t what I want to see yet, it seems I have lost a few inches around the thighs and waist and abs.  I am so excited.  I hope I can keep it up.

I joined a gym and went almost everday for the first two months. Unfortunately, I caught the cold last month and haven’t gone since. I recently began working out again by using my work-out dvds and weights. I’m trying to stick to veggies and fruits but find it difficult at times. I also want to start doing yoga again. Anyone find yoga helpful? If so, how often do you do it?
