Do you mind me asking how much you have lost so far?

I've been trying to eat everything in moderation and working out 3-4 times per week. I usually do 30 minutes on the treadmill, weights, 4 minutes on the ab ball, and a bunch of squats. Although today the wedding diet consisted of pancakes, mini oreo's and a cheese burger! YIKES!

Well I haven't started yet but my Dr. just told me he wanted me to lose about 40 lbs. He gave me a diet a few years ago called the Pittsburgh Cardiovascular Diet. I followed this diet slightly when I first got it and the weight was coming off. Since then, I've had another child.

 

I am going to start it up again, eventually.

 

If you are interested, look it up online, if not, I can get it to you somehow. Below is the basics of it.

 

For breakfast:

One egg cooked any way

slice of cheese

glass of water

glass of grapefruit juice or a half of grapefruit

 

Lunch:

water,

glass of grapefruit juice or half of grapefruit,

salad, any dressing,

I think any kind of meat on salad

 

Dinner:

Any meat prepared any way

water

glass of grapefruit juice or half of grapefruit

Dinner is where I didn't follow. I would just eat anything I think

meghanmbm - I do not know where I get the energy its not too bad once you get in the habit it usually takes me about 1 1/2 a day. I just do not think I will ever have the beach body but i am getting healthier I tell myself! You should just start out doing a bit then before you know it you will be able to add a bit more then you will be able to continue to add. I got to the point where I was working out about 2 - 3 hours but I did not see quicker results and i was too tired so I backed down.

My sister and I recently joined a gym and are working with a personal trainer once a month. It is so expensive for a personal trainer, but since I am in grad school and splitting the 1 session a month with my sister, it isn't too bad.

 

He has us weight lifting 3x per week. We do arms and chest one day, legs one day and shoulders and back one day (+ cardio 4x a week which includes some combination of stair climber, eliptical, bike, and treadmill for 45 minutes).

 

Our trainer also has us on an eating schedule, which includes:

 

Breakfast:

Egg Whites +

Cereal (Raisin Bran) or Whole wheat bagel w/spray butter

 

Snack:

Protein shake

 

Lunch:

Grilled chicken + Rice

 

Snack:

Protein shake

 

Dinner:

Grilled chicken or Tilapia + a green vegetable

 

30 minutes before bed:

Protein shake

 

I usually only do 2 protein shakes a day because I can't take it that much, but without it...you can't build lean muscle (+ I am a veggie girl and don't get nearly enough protein)

 

Good luck with everything!

    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
