  • Between thirty and thirty-five pounds gone, it seems to fluctuate. Mostly simple portion control and mild exercise.

  • Since I started walking regularly and roller skating, almost 20. Made some dietary changes as well

  • I don't diet. Once I started eating better and working (after being home for 7 years having babies) I only lost about 20 lbs but I'm down 8 pants sizes from where I started. Only 2 more sizes to my goal- pant size goal is more realistic for me than a pound goal.

  • so far I'm down 72 lbs (as of about 2 weeks ago- I have not been on a scale since then)
    going for about 15 more I think (which would put me right about 150

    I work out- LOTS of zumba (because I love it, and the studio I go to for it), some weight stuff/pilates, belly dance here and there
    drink water
    and eat what I want for the most part- but it has to fit into my calorie range for the day.
    that's it
    no pills, shakes, wraps or anything like that at all

  • Ugh... I was trying so hard to lose weight after getting engaged nearly a year ago now... I was lookin pretty good and then I got some stomach bug that had me gaining weight that seemed impossible to lose! I've gained 10 lbs in the last 4 months, and I'm eager to drop at least 20 before the wedding. :(

  • Great job! I've been walking almost daily, working out occasionally, and eating less and better. I've lost 63 pounds so far.
