I know everyone says they are going to loose weight for the 2011. (especially brides with the big day coming up). I’m curious to find out how do you plan on starting your weight loss journey. I need some inspiration.

I want to lose a bit of wedding weight myself. I want to get back to working out at least 3 times a week and working on my diet. I eat way too many sweets!

I was doing well with losing weight, but I hit a plateau, and then the holidays hit, so I have put back on a couple of pounds. I plan to get back on track by cutting soda altogether, eating more healthy foods, using the weights that I got for Christmas to tone up, and also start walking. My FI got me a belated Christmas present yesterday; an iPod shuffle, so I have it loaded up and will start my first walk tomorrow. From what I have researched, walking seems to be the best way to lose weight.

I wanted to write down all the days that I work out. I am hoping to start working out 4 days a week. My big issue is Food. There is always unhealthy food in the workplace, it makes it really difficult. I’m going to have to find a way to stay focused on not eating that stuff while working.

I started back hard core today as I have a deadline to make (spring break 2011 first week in April) and began w/specialized diet today and taking some supplements combined w/1 hr exercise (did lots of walking with hubby!).
That’s my plan. Diet is about 1,100 cal per day and you can supplement w/an extra snack if you need to. Should drop quick, but it’s very very healthy.

I plan on also cutting out the soda, fast food (although we really don’t eat it all that often anymore), juice, candy, sweets, etc. I need to start eating healthier, more fruits and veggies and water!
I plan on going back to the gym. Also, DH got a Kinect for Christmas and there are some weight loss games I’d like to buy to start working out that way as well.
@noritake22: You will not believe how much the music will pump you up! I love listening to my iPod while working out, I really find my rythym and get into it.

Hey girl! I’m from Massachusetts too, and I just started loosing weight for my August 6th wedding. When’s your date?
I have a food plan:
Breakfast is a 100 calorie English muffin with 1 hard boiled egg whites.
Homemade fruit smoothie (I buy frozen fruit and add water and blend, it’s actually really sweet but my roomie adds splenda to hers).
Lunch is oatmeal, crackers, and soy milk
Dinner is a salad with either chicken or tuna.
I take either an apple or an orange to work and I snack on wedges at least once an hour to keep my metabolism up.
Then I go to the gym after work.
If you want to be weight loss buddies, that would be awesome! We can give each other will power :o)

@CaraMia10: I am really glad to see you comment that. It was my main reason for getting one. I really wanted the Nano, but I couldn’t justify the price for what my main purpose is. I got the 4th generation one and it has more features than the previous ones, so it should work out great.

I’m pre-planning/making healthy meals and working out ala Tracy Anderson Method. I used to dance all the time which kept me tiny but I don’t have time to drive to the gym/class so it helps that I can spend an hour/hour and a half at home doing her workouts. I’m also pre-making things on Sundays. I just finished my week of meals, it only took me about 2 hours to make everything which will save me soooooo much time during the week. Hopefully I stick with doing this!! I’ve gained a good 20 pounds since I stopped my last “eating plan” (hate calling it a diet). I’m really confident!!! Good Luck ladies!!!

@almatron21: You are much more prepared than I am. I don’t have a meal plan yet. My wedding is in Sept but my wedding shower is in May and I am a bridesmaid for a wedding in June. So getting fit for May is my first goal.
I purchased the book French Women Don’t get Fat, I really like it and it kind of teaches you about how much some women overeat. (that is my problem, ha ha)
I currently don’t have a gym membership but I do have a few great DVDs that I follow. They are a great workout. I might stick to workout dvds for the current month. Running or walking outside is difficult when it is freezing out.
We can be Weightloss buddies. How is the routine working for you?

@MrsPinkPeony: That sounds really awesome. I need to get myself a menu sorted out ASAP. Going day to day unplanned is only a recipe for disaster.

@SoontobeMsL: omg, it sucks going to the gym after a long day of work. But I literarlly drive by the gym on my way home, so I don’t really have an excuse haha.
How do the home-work outs work? Can you actually feel it working?

@almatron21: Well I haven’t started my workouts yet but when I was working out, I was alternating between 3 videos: 30 Day Shred, Banish Fat Boost Metabolism and Debbie Sieber’s Tone It Up. All 3 DVDs are different and for me they work. When I was going to the gym, I would only use the trendmill or the elptical, I wasn’t doing the weighted work out because frankly I just didn’t know what I was doing. I’m better with direction.
