    I was working out before I got pregnant and now our son is 7months old and breatfeeding ended(milk supply dried up), I am back doing zumba 2x a week. I was diagnosed with Cardiomyopathy so I am limited to 2liters of fluid per day. But I am trucking along and trying to lose 80 lbs.

      What did you do to loose 60 lbs.?

       

      I measured  everything! I try and keep junk food out of the house and I try as much as possible to keep it low carb and low sugar. I still go out for dinner and get what I want but try and only have half of it or give it away before I even start eating, I still go to the movies and get popcorn with butter but I just watch what I eat and how much of it.

       

      I also focused on going to the gym before work since I can always talk my self out of going to the gym after work. Nothing calls my name louder then a nice comfy couch and my pj after 5pm  :).

       

      I started to wake up at 7am to get to the gym for 7:30am and would work for 30 mins and when my body was use to waking up that early with out an issue I started getting up at 6:30am for an hour work out and now I wake up at 5:30 or 6am for an hour and half work out. I focus on going Monday to Friday and if I go on the weekends with my fiance its just a bonus. 

       

      It helps if you have a gym buddy or even a friend to work out in your house or even walk around your area. I started to take up spinning and try to do yoga once a week to stretch out my muscles plus yoga is great for a core work out. I always do cardio for 30 mins to 1 hour then I move to weights. I do upper body once day then lower body. I also do core work outs every day. I found that to be the most important.

      I signed up for the local YMCA where they have classes. I LOVE cardio Kickboxing.  I am trying to eat better. I swear it is one the hardest thing to do. Mostly because I am lazy AND I need portion control.  Anyone else have trouble with that? what did you do?  I hear that if you wait and then go for something small later it helps.

       

      I was trainning for a swim-a-thon type thing, I started counting calories. I went through so many 100 cal snack packs... anyone else have good luck with calorie counting? I did but then my finecee came home from Iraq and spoil me. 

       

      ALSO-- Has anyone tried to make a motivation wall? I was thinking about it, but not sure what to put on it.

      T-25. Although I have to see is kind of tough. but it's also suffering it out for 25 minutes as opposed to an hour.

      I'm another MediFast-er.  Lost 50 lbs last year in six months (April - Oct), but gained 15 back from Nov - Feb.  I'm back on track now, and hoping to drop another 35 before next January.  I've already lost 9 of the 15 I gained.

       

      Although, I'm not sure if I'd recommend the to most people.  It's super low calorie (800-1,000) and you can't eat ANYTHING fun.  But, IT WORKS.

          Anyone with a Fitbit want to connect to hold each other accountable?
