Ive been using Jillian Michael DVD’s for a few years now and I find that they give me great results. I recently cancelled my gym membership because I never used it and I found that I got a better workout done at home. I have the 30 day shred and the metabolism boost video and they have strength, cardio, and abs in the DVDs. I highly recommend them.

Any exercise is better than nothing. You’ll get more results if you have a concentration on both.

@brittaful: From looking at your profile really quickly it doesn’t look like you are getting enough calories. Adult women should not be eating less than 1200 calories a day. Also, are you eating the majority of your calories in the morning or at night? What time do you stop eating? Make sure you stop eating before 7 or 8pm.

@brittaful: Can you run or jog at all? In order to tone up you will need to incorporate cardio into your routine too…cardio is the best for melting fat because you can sculpt your muscles all you want but it won’t matter if theres a layer of fat over the muscle.

I would suggest you up your calories above 1200.  You can use an online calorie calculator to determine how many you get per day to lose the amount of weight you want over the given time.  I never go below 1400–it’s too few and makes it too hard.

Your percent carb is kind of high in my opinion, and your fiber looks low.  I would suggest cutting all the “white stuff” out of your diet for a few weeks and see if that makes  difference.  Instead of a cookie, eat a piece of high quality dark chocolate.  

You can also try more veggies–like carrots, frozen greenbeans, etc.  They will make you feel fuller and give you more fiber.  I have found that trying to eat the full five to seven fruits and veggies is tough–but will help full you up and replace bad snacks.

Finally, drink water and try to get eight hours of sleep.  If your knees have problems, do arm weights.  Weight bearing excersize is the best thing you can do.

No gym?  Do pushups!  You can also borrow fitness DVDs from the library for free.  You can do squats and lunges without weights, or pick up some cheap weights on craigslist or at target. I would get a pair of five pounds, and a pair of ten pounds.  If you build muscle now, it will also make losing weight easier.  

120 at 5’5″ is pretty ambitious.  Realize that as you lose weight, you also want to be building muscle.   You can have someone who is 120 with no muscle in comparison to someone 130 with muscle and they can look very different.  Especially when you lose a lot of weight, realize that as you get closer to your goal your plan should be flexible enough to adjust.  Don’t get too married to a number, and remember that while everyone wants to look good in the dress, this should also be about improving your health, stamina and strength.   That’s what helps with long term maintenance. 

Congratulations on the ten pounds you’ve already lost!
