    May 25, 2012!  I work out for like 3 weeks at a time and completely fall off the bandwagon.  I just need a plan I can stick with and hopefully someone to help me stay motivated.  My FI is such a workout-aholic that I don't like to exercise with him!  I'm hoping my 2 local bridesmaids who work out will allow me to tag along until i get into a routine.


    Together we can conquer the world.

      4 week weigh-in!!!! I lost 6 lbs and 3 inches!!!! Cannot believe it!!!! Way better than I expected... watching what I eat and a new exercise routine has really kicked started my butt again!!!! I am loving Hip Hop Abs... definitely noticing my mid-section is getting better... no where near where I want to be, but closer at least!!! I was wondering if anyone has tried Turbo Jam... I'm thinking that might be my next 90 day run and save P90X for the last 90 day run. Lets keep it up Ladies!!!

          Nice job, Kya!!

           

          I want to look into this Hip Hop Abs thing, but i am a TERRIBLE dancer (think: Elaine Bennis from Seinfeld- terrible), I'll probably look like a crazy person flopping around the living room LOL but it would be worth it!

            Hi ladies,

            Congrats to all of you on your upcoming weddings and for being so motivated to get in better shape.

             

            I have also been fairly big my entire life, the largest I got to was 217.8 back in 2009, I knew that this was completely unacceptable and something had to change. I started on weight watchers online and working out 4-6 days a week during lunch hours at my local YMCA, it took me about a year to drop a little over 50 lbs from my 5'10" frame. This is the smallest I've been since elementary school *note, I was this tall by grade 7! I have kept it off for a year now and have been slacking a bit on the workouts but have kept with my healthy eating habits (no longer on WW though- I use fatsecret.com for calorie counting). Needless to say, I am wanting to shed these last 15-20 lbs so that I look my very best at my wedding... and hopefully get to wear a bikini for the first time in my life.

             

            Since the new years I have been very motivated and have dropped 4lbs. I am wanting to be around 150 so I still have around 15 lbs to go. Need to vamp up my workouts (spinning, running and bodyblast classes generally) and I have even signed up for a mini triathlon in June for breast cancer (women only) to keep me motivated! The mini-tri is a 300m swim, 12km bike and 3.3km run. I am also toying with idea of taking up kick-boxing :)

             

            Good luck to all of you, keep motivated and be strong! Every time you think of eating something you shouldn't or are feeling lazy then just remind yourself how much more important it is to you to feel beautiful and healthy not only on your special day but every day.

              I felt the same way when I first bought it. I've had the DVDs since last February, but it was too hard back then... I felt like an
               idiot. I actually started doing it in December and once you do it for a week or so, you get the hang of it pretty quickly and then you can really step it up. The best part is that you're at home where no one can see you ;) so it doesn't matter what you look like. The results have surprised me so I'm going to keep up with it for the next 60 days!!!

                  Thank you soooo much!!! I really do believe this forum is great support... there have been days I REALLY didn't want to do my workouts or watch what I eat, but I think about you ladies and our weddings and that has given me the motivation I need to push through!!! So thanks for being here!!!

                    FI is always home so I need to find him a hobby so he'll get out for a half-hour while I spasm around the living room. Otherwise he'll sit there and giggle at me! LOL glad you're getting good results, I'm def going to look into this.

                      I would definitely try it out!!! I was the same way with my FI, but I just don't care anymore... I told him not to watch or go to the garage because I want to look in a swimsuit. :)
