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.

                      I am doing a cardio bootcamp class tonight that is absolutely brutal.  No doubt in my mind it's worse than running a 5k.
