      Here's my 3 biggest tips, which I've given before but just a refresher:

      DON'T DRINK YOUR CALS! PERIOD! This includes juice people!! Milk's ok.
      CUT OUT STARCHES! Pastas, white breads, potatoes. I know it sounds terrible, but the reason you crave them is because your body's sugar levels aren't balanced. Starch turns to sugar instantly when you eat it, spiking energy levels and making you feel satisfied. Never lasts though! Cutting them out will stop cravings and you'll start eating when you're actually hungry.
      DRINK LOTS OF WATER! It'll help you feel satiated and you'll be less inclined to munch away.
      Great tips! I can attest to ALL of these things working for me when I was actually doing them! :) Well I'm doing them again now too but it's tough, as expected.

        manders, i can click on your ticker and it brings up the page where you would need to enter your PIN to make changes. so i guess you've got it right now!

        i need to make a new ticker but it will have to wait until i get home and take my start weight. ugh.

          Yup...after trying every freakin link-y thing they provide on the ticker page I found the right one! Fack...who knew it would be so difficult! LOL

          So much to do this evening...I have to make time to send you a pic Tash...crapola...I may have to go with no pedi this week! Sorry for the foot grossness! lol

          Oh...and what about next week. I'll be in El Salvador so I won't be able to weigh in. Is that cool? should I do a weigh in on sunday before I leave? Or just wait until the following week?

            Hi ladies!

            I'm onboard to lose the stubborn 10 lbs and tone up before my wedding! It's a lil bit tough because we got a puppy so i spend time with him after work since he's cooped up in the crate all day. i do take him on walks so that's some kind of exercise! Lol.

            i used to do the shred 3-4times a week before we got the puppy two months ago. ahhh!!

                Just sent my pictures in! Im so motivated!!! Which is something I havent seen in awhile, so running with it. LOL I did just watch last nights Biggest Loser eposide to....so Im sure that has left me with some inspiration. :)

                I got this app for my phone called Lose It! Its so fun! Or maybe Im just a dork. I can log my weigh ins, exercise, and calories. It has this calorie budget bar, and as I log in through the day it tells me how much I have left for the day. And when I exercise it adds in those calories (which makes me really excited.LOL) Its fun. LOL I dont know if I necessarily agree with the calories allowed, so I adjusted it a bit.

                    My Problem:
                    Only have 30-60 minutes to exercise each day
                    Only interest in exercise lately seems to be yoga
                    Very sedentary lifestyle - some days I can spend 12 hours at a desk

                    Result: Only burn 150-300 calories per workout

                    Add a 5 minute set of jump roping in to my schedule. This burns an extra 50 calories per set. I've managed to work up to
                    2 rounds:
                    6 minutes jump roping
                    15 push ups
                    30 crunches
                    An extra 150 calories burned

                    What's your problem/solution?
