I’ve heard great things about Jillian Michael’s DVDs.  Also, I personally like Windsor pilates.  I bought the express DVD that have 4 10-minute workouts.  They’re the only thing I feel like works to gain lean muscle.  Good luck!!

I lost 20 lbs since November in prep for the big day. It was surprinslgy simple, all i did was Weight Watchers points plus online and I put in 4 workout’s a week. 2 workouts were cardio for 45 mins to an hour and 2 were muscle building like Physique 57, Core Pilates, Pilates Reformer etc. I dropped about 1-2 lbs a week steadily for months.

*Hint if you do weight watchers, or any weekly weight tracking. Set your weigh in day on Friday. I find its easier to be a little more strict with myself on weekdays and I usually fall apart on weekends. Having my weigh in Friday morning after a week of hard work helps motivate me not to do anything that weekend that would reverse all the hard work I put in Mon-Fri.

I don’t know what your eating habits are like now but mine were terrible so the introduction of veggies and healthy foods really made a difference. Cutting out alchohol and carbs also helps slim me down a bit here and there before parties and photo sessions. But generally I allow both in moderation. 

If you’re looking for something to do at home – my cousin recently lost a TON of weight (about 20-30lbs) doing the tracy anderson DVD’s daily.


Good luck!!! 🙂

@litljen84:  I’m happy to help! I remember how i felt when I wanted to drop weight for the wedding. Ill ask my cousin how much she paid for her DVD’s, although I doubt she wants to sell because she does that every day like it’s her job. Ill find out what her feedback is on them!

Weight watchers online is what worked best for me, I’ve never tried the books. Online was like $60 for 3 or 4 months. I eat like crazy, so being hungry wouldn’t work for me. I found things like grapes and spaghetti squash and just substituted those in for chocolate and pasta and I just let myself have as much as I can humanly eat.
