    Yay!!!! I'm very excited to have found this thread!!! I have been dieting and exercising for a year now after having had my son (Sept. 2009). I had gained so much weight and was about 30lbs over weight prepreggo. Ouch :( It has been hard work, but I seriously believe that if I can do it... anyone can. I was so lazy and had the worst sweet tooth prior to getting pregnant. I had to take it day by day and slowly make life changes. Doing things all at once never helped me... I always got overwhelmed or sick of it and would quit. I started doing Tony Horton's 10 Minute Trainer, I started out doing one 10 minute session a day and then gradually added more so I was doing 3 sessions a day, 5 times a week. I started keeping a diary of what I was eating... everything... right down to the hand full of m&ms. I found keeping the diary made me think twice about eating something unhealthy, just in case my FI or family members saw it :) I do believe starting out slowly and gradually increasing my workouts has made all the difference for me. To date I have lost 51 lbs. My goals now are to tone up and KEEP IT OFF... so scared to gain it back in the next year before the wedding   I really want to look good in a bikini! Hoping to keep each other motivated!!! Keep it up 2012 brides...

      Thanks, girl! I'm really happy with my progress and I'm not craving them surprisingly enough. Little craving here or there, but I just use my e-cig and it goes away (I even puff a little at my desk at work sometimes!!). I tried to quit in March 2009 also, but I was back smoking by the end of April 2009. I'm glad one of us made it back then! But I'm here with you now!

       

      I've tried multiple times to quit (patches, gum, medicine, hypnosis) - NOTHING worked for me. I have a highly addictive personality (thanks, Dad). The e-cig is my life saver. FI likes it too since I'm not a royal bitch like every other time I tried to quit

      Congrats on the starting Weight Watchers - and a BIGGER congrats on 1 week not smoking!  I quite smoking in March 2009 - oh my gosh, I can't believe it'll be 2 years already!  I smoked a pack a day for over 10 years, so believe me it wasn't easy, but it was (and is) sooooo worth it.  I'm not sure how much cigarettes are in your area, but I had estimated I spent about $7 a day going to get cigarettes(lighters, gum, change that gets lost).  I started transferring that amount of money every morning for not smoking the day before.  That was $200 going into my savings account just from not smoking - not to mention the health benefits.  It's not always easy, but you can totally do it!  Just don't pick it up!

            Hey ladies,

             

            First day of my power90 (precussor to p90x) was yesterday.  I feel awesome!  And very excited to do it again today.  I had to pause twice for a few second but it was all good.  I think back to my college days and these exercises were a breeze....so this is my motivation to get back to my line name of "brick house"  ;-)

              Congrats on the pending wedding. Congrats on taking charge of your body, mind and health.  You may want to read up on the hCG Diet. Some people are losing from 0.5-1 lb a day.  There are 23 day and 40 day protocols. It doesn't require you to workout, however, I feel it spends up the process.  You can find great deals on ebay.com.  Best of luck on your big day.

                    Kya,

                     

                    I will say just with the 1 day that this program is definitely not a 90 day program for someone in semi good condition.  Maybe like 30-45 and then I'll hop into p90x. I'll definitely keep you posted.. as I'm looking forward to taking my measurements again and seeing the results.  But for now it's good feeling pain in my stomach and thighs...

                      That's good to hear, I'll be finishing the first 28 days of Hip Hop Abs on Friday and am very eager to see if I'll have the results I'm hoping for. But definitely want something that will be more challenging to keep up motivation and inches off. I think I'm going to give P90 a try. I'm totally a beachbody fan... I'm also interested in Turbo Jam :P I like these at home videos... no one can watch me ;)
