    Have you tried Weight Watchers. I swear by it. I have only been doing it for 3 weeks and I have lost 10.5 lbs, and I don't need to loose a lot of weight so it came off pretty quick. I was 139 when I started and on Saturday I was 128.5. I have been going to the gym too. I have tired to loose weight in the past and nothing else worked. And let me tell ya, I still eat what I want as long as it is within my allotted points for the day. My clothes are loser and I am seeing more muscle definition.

      I have tried weight watchers in the past and I too swear by it...I am kinda mixing that w/ eating more protein and fiber, etc...

      I realize some people's bodies are different, because I have never been one to drop more than 3 lbs per week and even when I starved myself for 4 days (I think I drank liquids only) I barely lost a pound or two...it's just my body I think.

      I am doing it all..I spend 1.5 to 2 hours in the gym 4 days a week and I circut train and do cardio and abs...

      I have to say that as of today I am down 2 more lbs...so that's 6 lbs total now in almost 4 weeks...it's still slow but it's coming off...and I honestly believe that if I didn't go to Vegas that weekend and slip a little then I would be down 8 lbs. Other than Vegas, I haven't cheated at all...

      so anyway, I am just going to be patient and stick to my plan and it should all work out.

      Plus I have kept night time eating to protein only and I barely even eat dinner because I don't get home form the gym until almost 9pm...so we will see...

        You are doing ssssooooo good! I cheat ALL THE TIME!!! And I only am in the gym for THAT long when I am with my trainer. I can't keep up the cardio for a full hour like I need to.

        You are rockin' with that weight loss!!! I wish I was down that much after 4 weeks!

          one thing you have to get out of your head (and its the problem for most women) is that you are set in thinking that the number weight is what is important. you have to consider that muscle mass weighs 30% more then fat weight. so if you are excercising might not see a big change in the actual weight but as for the way you actually look might be changing. you need to get the book "abs diet for women" its specifically geared to how womens weight differs and what women need and dont need. plus the TWO EVILS you need to completely get rid of are high fructose corn syrup and ANYYY trans fats (hydragenated and partially hydrogenated oils of any kind) in any amounts. those are man made and your body views them as a chemical and it doesnt know how to break them down and so your body will immediately store that as a fat molecule.

          also what you really need to make sure you do is keep eating . 3 meals and 3 snacks. lots of lean proteins and fiber (avoid carbs like white rice and pasta but healthey carbs like hole grains are good) .

          do not EVER starve yourself. thats the worst thign you can do. sure you will loose weight but you are going to make your body think that you are unable to get food so it will store any calorie you take in as fat and store that for energy. if you are constantly eating you are training your metabolism to constantly burn food .

          get the book. many of my female friends have gotten it after i recommended it and they cant stop thanking me about it. it will really help you get the wrong missconceptions out of your head and help you loose the weight in a healthy way. you got plenty of time to tone up and slim down :)

          hope i helped
