I’m struggling.  I have certainly been eating better (smaller portions and healthier foods), but I’ve also changed my lifestyle from working full time in a physical job to going back to school for a semester, so I don’t feel like I’ve really helped my situation at all.

I am a July bride! I’m 5’2 and currently at 127 lbs- Goal is to get down to at least 115, ideally a little less.  I’ve lost 6 lbs so far by calorie counting (I use the myfitness pal app), but I would like to start cardio/toning.  My problem is getting the motivation, with work and a 3 year old there just never seems to be enough time in a day!

Ive lost 45 pounds in the last year due to medical changes in my life so I would probably have to try for the last 5-10 but I think really cardio strength and stretching is what I need to focus on. Really hard without the support Im use to the Running Room kicking my butt since I trained coached and worked there. I work one 15 hour shift a week so when Im there I try to do some physically demanding work (putting up fencing on a ski hill is much harder than youd expect).

So I have a goal of getting down 25 lbs since January. I am not seeing the scale move (beginning to think that the scale might be broken) cause I’ve dropped a pant size already – my goal is to get down to a size 7. To fit in my wedding dress I had to drop 20 pounds to get in the size dress that I ordered. I admit I have at least another 10 likely to lose, but we’ll see my first dress fitting is Friday… EEEEEEE… but we are also trying to fix my medication (I have really severe thyroid deficiency that has caused me to gain quite a bit of weight over the last year.)

I haven’t really lost any weight, I’ve been bouncing between 122 & 124 for the past couple of months but I’ve been weight lifting 5-6 days a week with some light cardio 1-2x a week. My body shape has changed though, my shoulders and arms are more toned and my posture has improved greatly, I feel like my abs are flatter even though I don’t have a 6 pack (but I haven’t really been trying for one), and finally my legs are more toned, I have a little bit of a butt and teh front of my thighs is flatter. I’m very much comfortable with the way that I look currently, and it’s easily maintainable which I need with my dress fitting in 2 1/2 weeks.

Hope everyone else’s fitness journey is going well. Remember it’s not about the weight on the scale, one of my clients, lost 11 pounds of fat and gained 11 pounds of muscle, her weight hasn’t changed but her body looks completely different so keep that in mind when you are busting your butt and the number isn’t changing. 🙂

69 days until my wedding!  …and I have just started thinking about toning up.  I am 5’4″ and weigh 120, so I am not looking to lose any weight, but just get some more muscle definition.  Do you think it’s too late to start?  When did you all start seeing results???

@caroline5:  I have had good success in the past with interval training in the morning before breakfast, a few days per week.  With some weight lifting in the evening a couple nights a week.  Your body burns 300% more body fat in the morning before breakfast than it does any other time of day.  Less bodyfat means the better you can see your muscle tone.  😉
