    I tried the insanity videos...I actually did the DVD three times...definitely intense, I HATED them more than anything...I knew I wasn't going to exercise when at work I was dreading going home to those tapes,ugh..gave them to my sister in law said good luck! Glad they are working for you as everyone is different, we all need to find our exercise/heakthy eating niche! good work!

      7 months to go and I still HATE working out and still LOVE food....bad combination LOL I have 15 pounds (10 minimum) to lose by October. I have Jillian DVD's, yoga DVD's, have tried the gym and hate that too LOL i admit I am lazy. I work long days and get home and want to relax. I have tried everything to motivate myself and I suck at it hahahaha I have been eating better but i am not counting calories just more aware of portion sizes and what i am putting in my mouth

       

      I need to find my solution....hoping the nicer weather and taking walks will be a good start!

        Have you tried working out in the am?  I know it's difficult to get up early, but you'll enjoy your day more if you're not dreading going home and having to work out. Since you'll have just woken up, you won't have much time to psych yourself out of it.  Just an idea, good luck!

            I'm full of excuses LOL

            I will have to give that a try though...i'm not a morning person but maybe if i roll out of bed half hour earlier and walk the dogs it might work :)

              I'm totally getting frustrated!  I'm not losing the weight that I need to, I've been working out like crazy and eating well.   I only have 4 weeks left and need to lose 5-10lbs I know it doesn't seem like much but if I'm going to be in my swimsuit for 2 weeks I need to be looking slim otherwise I know ...I won't be having a good time.  I need to figure something out!

                Please be careful. i know it can be frustrating, but losing that much weight in only 4 weeks is not healthy. If you are working out and eating healthy, try looking at other areas of your life that may be affecting you. Stress?  Lack of Sleep?

                Good luck and remember those 5 lbs. are not really going to matter in the big scheme of things. You will still make a goregous bride!

                  I feel exactly the same as you! I would be fine if all I had to do was get in a dress for a day but the swimsuit part is whats getting me! Doctor told me 2lbs a week is still healthy, weightloss, goodluck!

                    I actually think 5-10 lbs in 4 weeks is definitely within a health weight loss range...1 - 2 lbs a week is considered healthy. Of course, if you're already within a healthy weight range for your age and height, it's going to be harder. You may already be doing this but if not and since it's temporary and you only have a few lbs to lose, try going low carb and high (LEAN) protein. Keep all your carbs to oats, All Bran, and veggies/fruit (sweet potatoes are ok, too). Be very careful with your dairy intake, make sure it's skim/fat-free. A lot of people are horrified when I tell them to try eating this way but 1) it works and 2) this is actually a very all-natural way to eat and forces you to eliminate all of the processed crap that we all eat constantly without even realizing it. Goodluck!

                      Make sure you are not voer exercising!  I was only losing less than a pound a week and i was getting so frustrated i became really sick last fri and haven't worked out since, it is now thursday in Australia!! I went to the gym this a.m and had my weigh and measure no work out as till too sick! I have dropped 7 cms over all from my body and have dropped 1 kilo!! I am so happy, sometimes if we exercise too much our bodies go into starvation mode because they dont know when theya re going to get a break! I got told to take a break every third day. Good luck.
