    Attention ladies living in Canada-you totally have to sign up for an exercise program called UBC (ultimate body challenge). My girlfriend who's getting married in August here in Calgary just finished her first session and joined for another-which I'm signed up for. Its a 10 week program-trainers teach you all about healthy eating, you work out 6 days a week and get Sunday's off-which you can eat anything you want that day. The workouts are kickboxing and toning classes. My girlfriend is so toned now its crazy!!! She looks amazing. I start April 14th!!! I can't wait. Apartently you take before and after pic's its a National competition-the winner is picked from the best results from the basis of your before/after pic's. Ladies look into it-it's so worth it.

            I couldn't exercise this morning because I had to leave extra early for a meeting. But I'm going to try to do something tonight when I get home, as I'm sitting at my desk right now stuffing my face with tortilla chips, so bad!

                I need some serious motivation!!! I put myself on a diet July 4th of last year and my goal was to lose 120 pounds by the wedding, April 20th. I have a home gym (bowflex, treadclimber, ablounge and free weights) so I have no excuse and have done really well. I am down 70 pounds ytd... but there is no way I can lose the other 50 in the next three weeks. So... I have reset my goal to lose another 20-30. But, it's been three days and no working out and I have eaten terrible, and I came to the realization that there will probably be no one from my side attending our wedding, so I even had a martini binge last night, lol.
                Please girls, help me help me help me!!! My arms still jiggle, we won't even discuss the hiney and oh my goodness the dress fits but its tight. If the Fat Gods are listening, get this twinkie out of my hand and make me crave some lettuce!

                  First off - WOW! 70 pounds is a lot of weight! You should be soooo proud of yourself! Please share your secrets with us! Second - you only have a few more weeks left - the end is in sight and your FI is going to be cheering you on at the finish line (or the end of the aisle!) Just think - you are going look at these pictures for the REST OF YOUR LIFE - put the twinkie down and go for a walk! Oh yeah - but not before you spill the beans on how you got this far sooo fast - we really want to know!

                  LOL, yew kin doo itt!!!
                  I worked for a weight loss center for a while years ago and picked up a bunch of great info and it seems to work. It is very simple but takes a lot of discipline or in my case FEAR. Fear of being in front of my FI family and mine in a bathing suit for a week.

                  This is my routine:
                  Food:
                  Breakfast: Protein Oatmeal, Oatmeal Bar, Protein Bar (at least 4 grams of protein/no more than 4 grams of fat)
                  Lunch: Any sandwhich or salad under 10 grams of fat, preferably with Chicken or Tuna, something with good protein, low fat (you get the idea) or Sushi (my favorite and very high protein/low fat
                  Dinner: Slim Fast Shake (the shake at night is key)
                  I only drink water, with an extremely rare alcoholic drink (this is the worse thing for a diet, especially wine)
                  *Take a good multi vitamin every day
                  Workout:
                  I do 20-30 minutes of cardio at least once but preferably twice a day (morning/night) and then a repetition weight work out once a day, alternating upper body and lower body. So, I do 3 sets of 20 reps of upperbody every other day (biceps, triceps, back, shoulder, chest- one excercise for each) and then 3 sets of 20 reps of lowerbody the other days (quads, hamstrings and gluts). And everyday I do at least 100 crunches to work my abs.
                  I did this consistently since last July and went down 70 pounds. There were probably 4 weeks, one here and there in that time period where I "fell off the wagon" and still was able to do pretty well. I ordered a size 12 dress when I was a 22, and am able to get into my dress. I am still a tight 12 but with about 10 more pounds my dress will fit perfect. So that is what I did. I don't know everything by any means but it has worked really well for me. Being in the weight loss industry I have learned a lot of the myths and things that really work and don't work, which makes it worse that I have waited this long to get in shape.
                  I didn't mean to go on that long, I am a little long winded, but if anyone has any specific questions, just PM me.
