Hey! Ive always been a bigger girl and quite frankly im tired of it. My goal is to lose atleast 55 lbs. I havent set a time frame. I dont want to be super skinny or have a lot of muscle. I want to look toned and have a flat stomach. Any tips or ideas? Ive been using this ap for a week and been counting calories and so far ive lost 4lbs.

Try checking out zumba. Ive been doing it the last few months and its helped me to tone up and have fun working out at the same time. If u luv dancing this will feel like clubbing for an hour rather than working out!

Zumba is awsome. I use ps3 game. Down 2 sizes. Getting ready to go down another. They also have it for the wii or xbox. Saw an add in bed, bath and beyond. Whole package for $50. You have to shake and swing your whole body, burns a lot of calories fast.

Try a low fat diet with exercising 4times a week. Brisk walking or running burns fat fast

Oh and good luck. Hope you reach ur goal. I know weight loss can be hard, but you just have keep on. Setting goals is very important, so set a time. :)

I have one big goal and i have weekly goals, so if i dont make my goal it motivates me to work harder the next week :)

A juice fast. It rids the body of toxins and makes any diet and exercise you do after work better. I just did a 10 day fast. I lost 12 pounds and I feel great.

Just take it slowly, then the weight will drop off and stay off. Good diet, regular exercise and keep yourself motivated. Pictures, weigh-ins, measurements... whatever works for you. Dont deny yourself anything, just think moderation, you will only crave it more if its forbidden. Once again its a lifestyle not a diet.
I lost over 30lb over about 10months. Ive kept it off too, now i exercise and eat well for me.

Everyone tells me don't eat this or that. And your right if I limit myself too much I crave the bad stuff. I have been eating what I want and paying attention to portion sizes
