As a server, I often have to eat dinner after I get home from work at 9:30-10:00, then I usually go to bed at 11 to stay on the same sleep schedule as my bf, who works days :( makes not eating late nearly impossible. I've been trying to just have a salad or something light for dinner, but it gets old after awhile. I'm always hungriest for dinner and it's hard to resist just grabbing a burger or pasta or something from work. I'm down to a size three and would like to stay that way.

What type of cleanse and detox do you do? I've heard of warm lemon juice & water in the morning... Do you have a "recipe"? LOL!

Thanks for this tip!

I want to get started right away but unlike most I have much more than 10 lbs. I need to drop 50 lbs.

Dave and Shrek way to go! That is such inspiration for me!

I have lost 8 pounds since March. I know that is slower, but considering that my life is a roller coaster right now I am very happy with my progress. I get to the pool when I can (trying for 3 mornings a week), the gym twice a week and now I have an elliptical trainer (thanks to my best friend) which both DH and I are trying to use a few times a day.

I am feeling so much better physically and emotionally for getting fit and thinner. It is so nice not to wear baggy sweats!

This is becoming a lifestyle for us rather than just diet and exercise. The other benefit is that we are spending quality time together exercising, planning healthy dinners and just feeling good!

Good for you! I'm going to see if I can go off the med that is causing my weight gain...it's just depressing to work so hard to lose weight, but be unable to because of a medicine.

That's great and not that slow at all! It's taken me a year and a half to lose 16lbs and stabalise my weight. (Admittedly that's just increased exercise and a little less eating chocolate as I know it's super slow). So 8lbs in 2 months is brill and with any luck, because you lost it at a reasonable pace, it will stay off too! Good luck, keep at it.
