  • 20 lbs, ate chicken, fish, fruit, veggies, water, prunes. I ran/ walked 3 miles 5 days a week and did some other cardio as well. I did toning exercises to tone up. Took 3 months~ eat nothing that comes in a can or bag only fresh. Eat nothing white, no rice, flour, bread, pasta, cereal... Its worth it though. i feel better has been 18 months have kept if off but i dont eat so strick now. i think walking is the best cardio and easy so is swimming. if you have music to listen too.. time flies by! good luck and hope I helped.

  • goal- prepregnancy weight of 150 by September. Right now I weigh close to 200. I walk 2 miles about 5-6 times a week, as well as toning exercises in the evening. I eat a lot less, and drink mainly water. And breastfeed! And turbo jam!
    Before I got pregnant, I lost 15-20lbs doing Turbo Jam and extreme dieting. I ate less than 800 calories a day, and walked everywhere, in addition to 60+hour workweeks on my feet. I lost that weight in less than 2 months time.
