I probably would have, if I had been able to stick to it.  Unfortunately, I was trying to do it with 8 pound weights.  not a good idea.  I burned out on it.

10 pounds????  WTF is right!

One thing that I did that REALLY had me on the way to a six pack was kickboxing... I lost a lot of weight in the beginning weeks and started to tone up quick with kickboxing. It works your abs out A LOT and avoids you having to do sit-ups.

 

Another thing I did was juice for 2 weeks, which requires you to only drink (no eating). I did this so I can clean my intestines out (which BTW can carry up to 10 lbs of fecal matter, I know  wtf.gif ). I would not recommend this if you have never fast before because it can make you moody and you are required to drank LOTS of water. I drank things like V8, 100% Juice, I had some juice made with veggie, and I even made some of my own juice. I lost 19 lbs in the two weeks I did it, and gained 2 lbs back once I started eating (not bad). 

 

 

I also took salsa classes, which was very fun. The classes are not as easy as they look and I would come out of there sweating. If you can't get your hands on a salsa class you can definitely get a Zumba which is more intense BUT WORKS. I did Zumba for 3 months and I was shredding pounds like crazy, plus my thighs were very toned from "dropping it like its hot" in the class..

 

Whatever you do just make sure it's healthy and it works for you... If something doesn't work and you don't see any results, try something else because everything is not for everybody..

This is awesome! I want in!

 

I started taking healthier steps a couple weeks ago. I zumba once a week, and head to the gym 2-3 times besides that.

And I am watching what I eat, which is helping I think. I feel better anyway.

 

Right now, FI is gone until the end of August. When he is around, I eat worse/more.... BUT I also have an awesome work out buddy. So, I am now eating better, but not so motivated for the gym. Hmm.

 

I have done Shred before and loved it. I used to do it before work every day. I just already get up at 5, and I cannot handle losing more sleep! But otherwise I would start again for sure.

 

Last spring I lost some weight, but moreso, inches. Probably the healthiest I ever was.

Then I went and got lazy and gained it all back, so I would LOVE to get back to where I was.... or further.

 

I will post my measurements and such when I get home. Again, thank you so much for starting this!
