The result: I'm down a few lbs from the beginning of April and I was under my WW goal (so I didn't have to pay). Yahoo! I still have about 6 more lbs I'd like to lose before our wedding day, so even though progress is slow for these last few pounds thankfully I'm still on the right track!
I may or may not be having a little treat now though. Whoops.
Great job on the weight loss hunnie!! My last 7lbs won't budge, my doc said its your body fighting to keep the fat on LOL

But I've been working out almost 5 days a week since January, and my measurements and weight don't seem to be budging. I am seeing some results from squats and running in my legs and butt area, but my tummy is definitely my trouble area... any ideas for quick workouts?? I want a gym membership but have no time to use it, and during the day I sit at a desk most of the time.. blah. he lady I go to the gym with has already lost 10 pounds.. I am finding it super unmotivating.. any advice or tips would be awesome! You ladies sound like you are doing great!
Jillian Michael's 30 day shred, buy it at walmart for $10 it's 20mins long. You can fit it in anywhere and you just need some light dumbells, I lost about 10 inches off of that program alone. Than try her Ripped in 30, it's also 20mins but a bit more advanced. After that I did her 6 week 6 pack, that's 30mins long and her Killer buns and thighs

I've started going to the gym more but for me, it's all about the food too. I lost 30 lbs on WW a few years ago and I think I may have to start going back to meetings to keep myself on track. I use myfitnesspal.com right now to track and even though it says to eat 1200 calories per day, I think they only way I can lose the 30 lbs I want to by September would be to eat 1000 calories per day :/
Anyhow, glad I found this thread!! Love the ideas and hearing what other brides are doing!
I'm on myfitnesspal but I don't follow the 1,200 calories....I set it for what the scooby calculator said I should be eating at and once I did that I dropped weight quicker. Google the scooby thing, its free and you plug in all the stuff and it gives you better estimates.

I'm about 2 weeks into the Insanity program and the ab/squat challenges. I'm trying to stay motivated, but the nutrition is my downfall!
I did insanity!!! Loved it, great job girl
