Exercise and eating right… lost 20 lbs!  I started fitness bootcamp a year and a half out and went three days a week.  Two days a week, I went to the gym or ran outside if weather was nice.  I actually didn’t work out on weekends, but did try to do fun active stuff like hiking trails or taking the dog to the park to romp around.  DH and I also started eating better… less processed foods, more lean protein and veggies, and tried to stick to good carbs only.  I did allow myself one cheat day each week.  Also, we stopped eating out frequently in order to save money for the wedding, which I think also helped with weight loss because it allowed us to cook healthier and with less sodium than restaurants.

Worked out a lot! Eating only when hungry and only until not hungry (not cleaning my plate). Also stopped eating junky or comfort foods such as burgers, pasta, fries etc.

It’s what worked for me, but it also depends on what works for you!

I just got started so only 5 lbs so far.  I have a Wii and I play “Just Dance” a lot.  Don’t laugh.  It really makes you sweat!  Plus it is very fun.  My finace and I dance around together in our living room while trying not to step on the cat.

I’ve lost 60 lbs in the last year! I cut out pop and all junk. I eat 5-6 times per day an smaller portions. Drink at least 2 litres of water a day and work out 3-5 times per week. I also don’t eat after 6pm and habe breakfast within 1 hr of waking up. The principles are very easy and simple, ut’s the sticking to it that’s the hard part (obviously). If i can do it, anyone can.

I just finished a fitness bootcamp, while I didn’t lose tons of weight I have gone down in size. The bootcamp focused more on building muscle, which in turn boosts your metabolism and causes you to burn more fat. Now that I’m done that I’m returning to my old gym and starting that back up again to get in more cardio and keep the progress going. I tend to eat healthier when I’m in the routine to workout regularly, I do still allow myself things like eating out every now and then so as to not feel like I’m not allowing myself treats here and there. I’m not much of a junk food person to begin with, I don’t typically eat chips unless I’m at a gathering with friends or family, and I don’t keep alot of things like cookies or junk foods in the house, that prevents me from snacking on things that aren’t good for me.

I joined a weightloss clinic….I had been trying for months to lose weight. I was working out HARD and eating clean and healthy, but it didn’t seem to do any good. I joined Medi-Weightloss clinic and have sucessfully dropped 30lbs in almost 3 months. They have been super supportive and helpful in guiding me towards my end goal and I honestly dont think I could have done it without them. I wish I could take the credit for doing it all on my own, but getting professional help was the best decision I could have made. 🙂

I’ve lost 90 pounds from my heaviest weight, and I have about 40 more pounds to go before I’m a ‘healthy’ weight. After that, I’d like to lose another 10 – 15 pounds of vanity weight. Although, to be quite honest, I’ve never been a ‘normal’ weight as an adult, so I may find that I look great after losing 40 pounds.


Generally, I eat 2k calories a day (more recently, 1800 after hitting a plateau). I strive to burn at least 4 – 5k calories a week through exercise, which translates to about 6 – 7 hours a week of moderate-to-intense activity. That’s the big secret.
