Has anyone ever tried recipes from Now Eat This! by Rocco DiSpirito? I got it for Christmas from my FMIL (I asked for it) and it takes popular recipes and knocks down the calories to less than 350. I have made meals from it for the past two nights for dinner and both myself and my FI really like it so far. I made chicken piccata last night and tonight we had chicken tortilla soup (delish and nice for a snowy night).

So I have started to eat better and hopefully tomorrow morning I can get back into working out. Basement will be done soon so I will have workout space again as well :)

And we are getting a second pup next Friday so that will keep me moving :)

I have 11 months until the wedding, so I have time, but I just really want to feel great about myself.

I lost some weight before I went dress shopping and felt awesome. I don't have a ton to lose, maybe 10 pounds, but I need to tone so I look hot in a bikini!!

 

 

hey amanda whats the average cal count on the servings of his meals. love rocco disparito book sounds awesome

Everything is less than 350.

The soup I had yesterday was 184, the chicken was around 310 I think.

Pretty good flavour so far.

He is on the biggest loser sometimes.

Trying the buffalo chicken fingers tonight.

Diva you sound line me.  I am 5'7", 155 lbs.  I simply want to tone my arms and tummy.  Well actually there is tummy fat I need to eliminate so its not as "simple" as toning!  I LOVE SWEETS!  I craved them each afternoon and evening.  I am trying to sub it for fruit but its tough at times.  I really just want to get my mouth wired for 2 weeks or so!  I know...I need some discipline. 

 

May will be here sooner than later.  HELP!

I want to lose 10 pounds by March 14 and tone up and i KNOW it is doable.  No shame, I am 5'9 and 163 right now...

 

I actually started WW yesterday and I felt kind of out of place there, matter of fact I got a lot of nasty "why are you here?" kind of looks, so I did NOT feel very welcomed by the other members.  I plan to only do it for one month, along with alternating days of P90x and gym time.

 

MY PROBLEM IS SUGAR!!! I crave sweets big time.  Also, it is SO hard to get motivated to get up and go to the gym in the evenings after a long day at work! I am a maniac in the gym on weekends, but I have to do better during the week somehow.

 

ok, I should probably go now right? LOL

 

Any tips for my 2 month journey?

I am in the same boat - I love sweets and that is what lets me know the meal is over, so without them I can just keep eating.  I wanted to pass on a trick I have used in the past and have just started up again - buy a pack of hard candy (like Werthers or Creme Savers) and have one of those when you are craving desserts.  They are about 20 - 25 cal each and can help satisfy that sweet tooth without busting the diet.

I am the same as you!  I am wanting to lose 30 lbs (more would be better) for my July wedding.  I have gone dress shopping and when it came to order my dress, my waist measurement was closer to the next size. I ended up ordering the smaller size because the next size up would of cost more. So I have to lose 3 inches off my waist for the dress to fit.  I know I can do it I have lost weight in the past.

 

I am following the diet I got with my Turbo Jam dvd.  I plan on exercising every morning before work ( riding my stationary bike, and Jillian's 30 day shred)  also going to hit the gym 3 times a week.

 

Good luck month and weight loss twin lol

Hi girls,

 

I am trying to be in the "best shape of my life" for my wedding.  I could stand to lose maybe 5 - 8 pounds.  I'm not big, but definitely more round in places than I'd like to be.  I've been religious at the gym for probably 3 years now, and I thought my metabolism would speed up and eventually the weight would come off.  But, apparently that's not the case.  So, i suppose I need to start eating better.  Boo, I am so not good at that!!!

You may have to change your workout routine. You're probably not dropping anymore weight because your body has become accustomed to the routine. This is what I was told by my friend's trainer. Better eating habits will definitely help you drop down a few pounds.

Brandy, I go to World Gym in La Plata.  I just started doing a "bridal bootcamp" routine I got from a book.  I do diversify my workout, and it doesn't seem to change anything.  The routine we are doing now starts with a warm up, some abs (different every day), a strength training section (different each day as well), and ends with interval cardio for 20 mins.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
