  • I joined the healthy wight loss group here- and found out what my BMR is- and have been eating within that for the last...7 or 8 months
    right now I eat about 1850 a day average...I eat whatever I want-but it has to fit within the calories for the day. I keep a notebook and plan out my day and pretty much just stick to that- that's what works for me.
    Strict diets are not something I would ever stick with so that's not for me. I have worked on making healthier chices for snacks-nuts or carrots and whatnot-but basically, I eat a variety of everything

  • I do 5-6 zumba classes a week plus pilates ( a class and a bit at home) and we have a weigt machine that I also use a day or two a week and bellydance when I can now- but started with one zumba class a week and worked up to what I'm doing. I count calories- and drink water too. As of Christmas Eve morning I had lost 41 lbs since mid Feb. * The biggest/fastest loss being in the last month or so- not sure why that is -but I'll take it!

  • I do Zumba once a week.. It hasn't been long though so I haven't noticed a loss in weight yet. It's so fun though!

  • Someone at my job is an instructor and she does some free classes on lunchhour. I tried it a few times and like it but am not doing it enough and may try taking a class soon.

    She has lost alot of weight but also says her change in diet helped too.
