    Hi,

    Like you I've never been a fan of diets but I've never heard of the 17 day diet.  What does it involve.  I have nine weeks to go & could do with losing 6lbs.  Any ideas?

      I too am having sucess with insanity. I have also heard good things about P90X and Jillian Michaels 30 day shred. I think the key is BALANCE! I still want to keep a life so I go out but make healthy choices. That way I don't feel deprived! Like sxcT said-eating clean is important. I find eating regularly and having small mealt (5-6 a day) is REALLY helpfu!

              Wow you look FABULOUS! You have inspired me to push my limits and try and break my (self imposed) boundaries.

                Hey girls

                 

                Thanks for the compliments, i really worked hard, I also continue to work hard, I no longer do 6 days a week now...i do 4 days now to maintain.

                 

                You have to be driven, i just dug deep and counted every calorie, but also allowed myself one high calorie day about every 10 days or so, which seemed to have worked, Julian Michaels told me that...LOL...so I did endulge a little, you cant be miserable or it will never work......and of course my BODYBugg was my best friend too...

                 

                i used MYFITNESS Pal app on my droid to count my calories, I really had to account for everything......i ate 5-6 times a day too......yogurt, whole grains breads and pasta, so i didnt give up bread, lots of fruit, lots of chicken and turkey, turkey burgers and used fillers like lettuce tomato, no sugar pickles and mustard, all those condiments are so low cal...cucumbers......i didnt do alot of salads cuz for me they didnt have enough nutritional value, you gotta eat good food that feeds your body. Jus a personal thing for me....

                 

                girls, just dont be miserable about your food selection, you gotta eat things you like, there are so many variations out there, you can find stuff that is low cal enough.......

                 

                And if you are gonna work out,make it count!!  work HARD!! Sweat!! Be a lil sore, a little uncomfortable!!

                 

                You want to know my biggest problem right now??? My wedding is OVER!! YUK, I wanna go back, really I do, Mexico was Paradise and real life  isnt as fun....where's my concierge, where my room service, where's Carlos with my Flamigo drink??.........Oh crap, I gotta do all that myself now??

                  WHOA....you look GREAT!!!!!  

                  Congrats on your wedding as well!  :)

                  How long did it take you to lose the 20 pounds? 

                  I keep falling off too....I am great for a few weeks, and then something pops up (right now its a visit from my bridesmaid who lives in Germany...she is here for 4 weeks...so far 2 out of the four have equaled me being BAD BAD BAD)...I feel guilty exercising because I am working and then come home and she wants to be out and about!!! 

                  Its only 2 more weeks, but I was doing so well before her arrival....we have a Vegas trip planned too....I guess two weeks won't kill me, and my eating hasn't REALLY been terrible, its just the exercise!

                  Hoping to get back on track real soon...........

                    I have also fallen off the wagon for about a week.  I was travelling for work.  Reading all the posts has motivated me again.  I need to go to WW and start working out 5-6 days again.

                    I am only able to do 45 mins a day in the morning.   I  am also trying to walk for an hour at lunch.  It seems to slowly coming off. 

                    How have you been Mwise?  Don't worry about your trip to LV.  Have a great time!!

                      From one Melissa to another :)

                       

                      I am doing OK....just feeling guilty and want to exercise, but having trouble finding the time!!! 

                      I agree, I am only in Vegas for 4 days, so I am going to have me some fun!! :)

                      I think its the alcohol thats getting me too....you know, a little glass of wine here and there....OK, maybe a little more ;)

                       

                      I try to stick to only having a glass or two one night on the weekend....but with my bridesmaid visiting, it seems to be wine night every other night!!!!

                      I felt more motivated after reading this today as well, so feeling like I can make it work, and give myself a bit of a break instead of being so hard.

                      Lets get back on track together.....the two Melissa's!!!

                      :)
