Crazy that a drink mix can do that to you!! Wow!! You did a lot!! LOL I've stepped up my cardio and eliminated some foods from my diet to see if that makes a difference. I need to start shedding these darn pounds. My future brother in-law is a personal trainer and he said to take your desired weight and multiply by 10-12 per calories per day. Example: 160 (lbs.) x10 (Cal)=1600 calories per day, amount of calories you should be consuming per day. So if your goal weight is 120 lbs, you should consume no more than 1200 calories per day. He also said your carb intake per day should be between 50-75 grams. He said no more than 75 grams, being the highest. We'll see how this works out for me because i'm starting to get a bit impatient. LOL

Wow!! 10lbs in 7 days?!?! That's freakin awesome!! Did you get the book? would you have recipes to share? If you continue eating well and keep up with the personal training, You'll be ready before summer!!

 

Yes, I also am prepping for the BD shoot. I've stepped up my cardio and eliminated some food choices from my diet because I was apparently consuming too much carbs. LOL We'll see what happens after this revision.

 

I live in the town of clarkstown in Rockland County, borderline NJ. I also spend a lot of time at the Jersey Shore from spring, throughout the summer. I have a beach house there. That sounds like a plan!! We can do lunch and chat :) Where in NJ are you?

Hey ladies - a word of warning for those of you working out at the gym:  especially during these winter months, wipe down the equipment BEFORE and after you use it.  I caught a nasty little cold last week and my only thought is that I got it from the gym because no one at home or work is sick.

 

I read in an article (about whether you should work out when you are sick) and they said that during your workout and the hour after a good workout your immune system is weaker - so anything you come in contact with during a workout has a good chance of doing some damage.

 

Hope this helps someone stay healthy this winter because no bride to be wants to lose out on a weeks worth of workouts and weight loss (like I did msncry.gif)!

I found this recipe on "protein pancakes" in a fitness magazine. At first I was a bit skeptical but I decided to try it out and it's pretty GOOD!! 

Nutrition score per pancake: 260 calories per pancake, 3g Fat, 25g protein

 

Protein Pancakes

(makes six)

In a bowl combine 1/2 cup of rolled oats, 1/2 cup fat-free cottage cheese, 1/2 cup egg whites, a teaspoon of vanilla extract, and a pinch of cinnamon.

 

Take a non-stick skillet, spray with cooking spray and heat up. Pour 1/4 cup of batter in at a time to make 1 pancake. Cook 2 minutes per side, or until lightly browned. Serve with a drizzle of agave nectar and fresh berries (blackberries, blueberries, etc...)

 

It smells great while cooking and it's very filling :)

I put these pancakes in the refrigerater, wrapped in foil, and take them with me to go.  You can also use this recipe to make muffins...just up your cottage cheese and oats...add in whatever fruit you like...and up the egg whites to about 9-10.  Add whatever spices you like and some agave nectar or splenda.

I just found this site!  What a great find!  I'm getting married May 7, 2011- and hope to lose 15lbs by then-  I really just started after the holidays :( (not a lot of time) To start off I did a detox, and now I'm just trying to stick to eating lots of veggies and lean protein while sticking to a workout regime- hopefully I stay motivated, but I think this site will help!  Congrats to everyone on their weight loss so far!
