:D I know i'm way late in responding to your weight loss need, although as I learned myself it's never to late or rather better late than never.

I was reading your post. I found out about this amazing shake diet through my personal trainer who is a friend of mine. Take a look at Body by Vi ( He got me on the transformation kit and I love it because it is so easy and efficient. It's a Protien shake that tastes like cake mix and you can make any, literally any flavor smoothies you want.

One for breakfast and one for lunch and then a nice sensible dinner, along with wise choice snacks in between if needed they also give you a metabolism booster and a hunger control thing to help. If you don't normally exercise at all start with a walk and just push yourself to walk a little farther everyday, if you do exercise just continue with your routine.

I lost 13 lbs in my first month and I had been stuck @ 150lbs for 3 years originally I was 185 after the birth of my baby, i started to exercise and got down to 160 joined Jenny crags for 2 years and got down to 150 (10 bs only) and have been stuck there until last month. I literally tried every diet and weightless company out there and gave up. Until he told me about this over a month ago. Of course I blew it all in one weeks worth of a vacation to Jamaica but I started over again this past Tuesday, it has been a slight challenge this time around but so far 3 lbs down. it looks pricey but I calculated it and it turns out to $8.00 a day beats all the fast food prices I was paying. :D wishing you the best of luck. The website to find it or talk to a promoter is

It's funny you should say that. I was on the south beach diet and lost 10 pds in 8 days but I just found out that I am pregnant again. Try south beach, which is the diet where you cut out carbs. and sugar. It's hard at first but it really works!

I too have decided that I am sick of the excess weight I put on after Josiah's birth...and so this is what I am doing--it has been almost 2 weeks now. I am watching portion size and what I snack on. Trying to limit sugar intake. This is the most important thing....I HAVE AN ACCOUNTABILITY PARTNER that I chat with every night on Facebook. We talk about what we have eaten--struggles for that day and what we are planning for the next day. I have stepped up the exercise. I have only lost about 2 pounds which is a bit discouraging...BUT I have lost 2 inches off of my hips and upper thighs!! That is better than pounds to me at this point-although I would like to see a better number next week.

I've recently made some small changes that have resulted in a huge difference for me. I make sure I eat whole grains at 2 meals & have low-fat dairy at every meal. example: Steel-Cut oats for breakfast with fruit and yogurt and a chicken wrap for lunch with some brown rice in the wrap for a filler with a glass of low fat milk. For dinner, I always make sure that my portion of veggies is always twice the size of any other portion on my plate and I eat my veggies first. I'm eating the same things that I've always eaten otherwise, but now I don't feel starved between meals.

I have found that little changes can make big differences. Just some examples: brown rice instead of white, wheat/multi-grain bread instead of white, and whole wheat/multi-grain pasta instead of regular. Lots of water instead of sugar-filled drinks such as soda. Exercise is important too. If you don't have time to get to the gym (or hate it like me!), and it's too cold to walk outside, try going to the mall and pushing the stroller around. Not only does it stimulate my little one, but I get some exercise a couple times a week too! Good luck :)

I read that if you want to loose 1 pound a week you need to reduce your caloric intake by 500 calories. I have been doing about 2 pounds a week (so, cutting 1000 calories). Some weeks are easier than other. The holidays were really hard! Also, I have been doing pilates at home with a video 3 times a week. It has been doing wonders. I also haven't "cut" anything out of my diet. I find that if you do that then you end up craving it until you cave. I have found that the recipies in the LooneySpoons cookbooks (the whole series - there are 3) are, for the most part, amazing. And they don't use a lot of really weird ingredients. Good luck!

Nothing has worked for me since having my daughter but before I had her I always did well on Weight Watchers. I plan on having another child soon and after that one I will be going back to Weight Watchers.
