Agreed with the WW. I followed the program and EXERCISED every day…was very dedicated. Lost 40 pounds in 6 months. 3 lbs a week at first, then more like 1 after the first 20.

Watching my calorie intake and cutting out alcohol.  Exercise @ least 3x a wk.  I was able to lose 7lbs in 2months.  I know its not much but I’m also getting my body ready to get pregnant.

I have successfully lost weight on Weight Watchers a couple of times, 30-40lbs in about 4-5 months.  Obviously I have yet to master the maintaining bit 😉

I agree with the PP’s.  I followed most guidelines for WW and used Jillian Micheals 30 day Shred or participated in Water Aerobics.

I started early and started a realistic workout routine that I will actually do. 

I am not over weight so much as I have jiggle where it shouldn’t be. I’ve lost 10 lbs so far and have another 10 to go.

But… I kinda want to have this all off before October when FH and I a pre-wedding moon of sorts (his deployment vacation actually lol)

You have lots of time so don’t look for secrets or the “easy way” because they always backfire.

Look to make changes that you can keep for a lifetime and educate yourself.

Simplified this means “Eat quality food, but not a lot and move a lot.”

Small changes have big impact.

How much are you looking to lose? Is it really a weight or a body composition/shape problem?


This is also a great article for beginners: 


I’d also recommend picking up this book:http://www.stumptuous.com/the-female-body-breakthrough 

Lastly, bodies are made in the kitchen.



A good read on fats: http://www.the-natural-health-hub.com/healthy-fat.html

I haven’t lost much weight yet, probably only about 8 lbs since I got engaged. I hope to lose at least 5-10 more though by October, but I’m worried that won’t happen cuz it’s so close. I’ve been walking about 1.5-3 miles per day 4-5 days a week and eating healthy mostly for the past few months. I also started using the shake weight. It seems to tone my arms up pretty well.

@2bMrsG: I’m also trying to lose 5-10 lbs. before my October wedding.

I’m cutting out soda, sticking with water. Increasing fruits and veggies on my plate. I’m working out 20 min. a day with Denise Austin DVDs. I know sometimes her positive expressiveness is grating on some people, but I find it silly and she does keep me going which is the important thing. I make sure to work out in the morning before I’ve had any breakfast as it causes the body to burn stored fat faster. I’m also cutting down on what I eat at night. I don’t have any numbers for you yet as I just started my routine, but ask me again in a couple weeks!
