The first 4 weeks call for NO cardio, BUT there is a weight lifting routine to follow. It also has great nutrition guidance. The reason for the no cardio had to do with not wanting to burn off the energy needed to build muscles and once you strengthen your muscles you'll increase your metabolism and burn even more fat when doing cardio. (or something like that, probably worded way better on the other website.)

I've got my small meals planned for every 3 hours today

I'd love to hear how it's going.

I feel it really has! I have lost 6 pounds in 2 weeks! And I was on my TOM for the first week and never lose during that...I can not do it for more than 2-3 weeks..I think I am becoming lactose intolerant or slimfast intolerant, just makes me gassy but it has helped curb my appetite! You are so close to cruise! Hope you are getting excited!

It's been hard to fit in going to the gym to get the weight lifting in. (My Dad was diagnosed with metastatic melanoma in stage IV the week I started and so we had to squeeze in a couple of oncology appointments and hopefully on Monday he'll start treatment.)

I tried starting the 17 day diet a few days ago and even bought the book, which is actually a really good read! I'm thinking I could combine the nutrition part of it with the livefit weight lifting and give it another try! The hardest part of this 17 diet has been remembering to bring my fruits, veggies, and yogurt to work with me and then I get hungry and cheat. I've been pretty good today, but I think I'll start fresh tomorrow!

I bought a bikini for the cruise. Holy cow! Tried it on, really on a whim, and thought, wow, I could really wear this! Still have 10 pounds til my goal, and two weeks til the cruise, but we'll see how it goes! DS9 has already said he wants to be as far away from mom in a bikini as he can get but hopefully I won't clear the pool deck! LOL Keep up the good work, ladies!

CJNIX-WOW, keep it up, I am soooo jealous! I tried a bikini on earlier this summer and wanted to run far far away from myself! lol.

OK, now that things are slightly more stable around here I am on Day 2 of the 17 day diet. I didn't have time last night to fit in the weight lifting portion of the livefit and also won't be able to do it tonight as I'll be driving 2 1/2 hours to pick my mom up. I guess I could bring my shake weight in the van! LOL.

That is awsome congrats. Nothing better than being surprised by how good you look.

Hey all. Sorry for the long delays between posts. Things have gotten extremely busy with work.

Here's the update on the diet. I'm down 25 pounds! I'm so phyched I can't tell you. I calculated my bmi yesterday it came out to 24.9. I'm no longer overweight. That's the good news. The bad news is that we leave for vacation in one week and I'm 5 pounds short of my goal. I'm thinking if I really work at it I could drop 2 pounds this week. I'm a bit disappointed with myself for not keeping my eyes on my goal. There were a couple of weeks there where I really slacked off.

I no longer am using the slimfast. I stopped using it about a month ago. I will still take one now and then for lunch, but that's it. I knew that it was going to slow down the weight loss, but I also knew that I had to get adjusted to eating real food again. The trick is portion control. I'm not counting calories per se, but I do keep and eye on what I eat. So, I figured out some meals that I can have for breakfast and lunch that are around 200 calories and I stick to that. I have an afternoon snack which is usually a piece of fruit or some cheese. For dinner, I make sure I have a salad with very little dressing and watch my carb portions. And of course, I drink lots of water/no calorie drinks throughout the day. It seems to be working.

I've been thinking about it and have definitely learned some things. First of all, I've changed my eating habits for good. If you told me a year ago that I could eat a 200 calorie breakfast and feel full till lunch I never would have believed it. Back then I was eating a bowl of oatmeal (double of what I have now) and then would have a snack mid-morning. Second, I've learned to manage my time to fit in daily exercise. It's not always a 2 hour trip to the gym, but I know I can manage to get something in each day. I also have really increased my endurance. Even when I was younger and fit, I was never a jogger. I just couldn't do it without pains in my legs and had trouble getting a comfortable pace. Lately, I've been jogging a bit. I still don't think it's for me, but I can run about a mile no problem.

I'm going to readjust my goal. My birthday is in November. So I'm going to reset my goal weight to 125 pounds by my birthday. That's a total of 7 pounds in about 3 months. Definitely doable. After that, no matter what I'm in maintenance mode.
