Hey everyone! Glad I found this forum. Lots of interesting information, situations and suggestions. I can`t believe someone tried to fake their own death .
I got engaged a few weeks ago and decided on Dec. 6th as our wedding date. I would like to lose 20-25 lbs by the wedding day....hopefully lol. it is doable right!!!
I started the Jillian Michael's Body revolution about a month ago and prior to getting engaged cause I was frustrated with the holiday weight gain and I was back to my heaviest weight ever. Now i have a huge motivator to actually stick to it. I lost about 4 lbs so far (hard to tell right now due to mother nature). I am going to weigh myself and take my measurements on Monday to check in and see the progress. I do see changes in my body. There is less cellulite in the legs and butt, my legs are firmer and I feel like I see the biggest changes in my mid section but then again, that is my biggest problem. I can not tell you how motivating it is to work out when you remind yourself that all your friends and families will be seeing you in a bathing suit soon. LOL!
Anywho, I really like the program so far. It is a 90 day program and the workouts are 30 mins. It is set up that you work out 6 times a week. You work out the front of your body in one workout, then your back in another and there is a cardio workout. You do each one twice a week rotating through them. I have not been able to work out 6 days a week because I play baseball one night a week. I had every intention of baseball being my rest day and still working out 6 days but I have found so far that I do need a day to actually rest. So I have been rotating the DVDs over 5 days.
Now I wish that I had taken a picture of myself when I started but at the time I was too embarrassed by the way I looked and could not bring myself to take a picture of myself. I try hard to make smart food choices but I find that this is my weakness. I am of Italian descent....carbs and sweets are engraved into our DNA. hahaha!
