  • I lost the weight I needed to lose (18 lbs) last summer and have kept it off for almost a year now.

    What worked for me? Nutritional cleansing.

  • I need to lose about 10 pounds and then finish it up by getting more toned. 3 babies later I am rather squishy! I originally lost weight with my first doing tae bo and pilates and going for long walks. I use to do it during naptime but with three kids they are not all on the same schedule anymore. I also only drink water and I have stopped putting sauces and dressings on top of things and have them on the side.

  • I would start with simple changes.
    Don’t buy junk food
    Walk, or do other exercise, for at least 20 minutes a day, at least 3 times a week.
    Make sure that you are drinking enough water, at least 8 8oz glasses a day.
    Eat an apple or big pile of veggies before meals.
    Eat 7-8 servings of fruits and vegetables a day, in at least 3 different colors.
    Eat 5-6 servings of whole grains a day.
    Eat at least two servings of legumes a day.
    Cut way back on meat and dairy

  • I don't need to, but would like to.. but I'm pregnant, so it can wait until after the baby comes.

    best thing is to eat healthy and exercise. You can go to msn and they have a calorie counter wher eyou can add your weight in, and they give exercise hints and things, tell you how much you have to do a day or can eat a day to get to your goal weight.

  • Set some goals and pick a workout that serves your goals and have some fun at it as well. I have 45 more pounds to go and I am back on track. GL Momma

  • I need to lose like 50 lbs. After I move and have more control over what is coming into the house I think that will help. And I need to start exercising.

  • no, I hit my goal wt in April. (97lbs gone!!)
    cut out the processed junk and move your body.
    start with small changes and don't expect things to happen overnight. it is a process and you need to be patient with yourself.
    don't let a bad treat/meal be an excuse to binge all day.
