How I Lost My Pregnancy Weight #PostNatalFatBurner

logo (81)

*This partnered post with Markerly. Story is my own. When I was pregnant with my second child, I gained a LOT of weight. I was pregnant with my daughter and I just put on the pounds. I started out weighing only 115 lbs (yep, I used to be super skinny!) and by the time I had my daughter, I weighed 180 lbs! It was CRAZY!   I never thought my body could put on weight like that but yes, it did. No, I did not have gestational diabetes, either. After I had my daughter, thankfully I was still young and had the energy to workout and eat healthy. I started losing pounds IMMEDIATELY. It was awesome!   Then the dreaded trying to lose the last 10 lbs happened. The weight just would not go beyond that. I was stuck! I started working out more often and harder and then the weight FINALLY came off and I was at a comfortable 120 lbs. That was okay with me.   Being pregnant with my other two kids (my oldest who is a boy and my youngest who is a boy), I just never really … [Read more...]

Slim-Fast has come out with the new on-the-go shakes, that is making it even easier to lose those last few pounds, on the go! Talk about a great thing.

I have always enjoyed the taste of Slim-Fast, but it is true, the can that it came in was not something I could just take with me in a hurry. The new on the go plastic bottles are great. They are the perfect size and have a lid to put back on them so they won't spill all over … [Read more...]

Guest Post: “What Is The Secret To Successful Weight Loss?”

scale

Guest Post By: Maggie from My Little Review Corner What is the "secret" to successful weight loss? Twelve years ago, I was 120 pounds overweight. I had tried many "programs" that were available and, like many people, I had started on my weight loss journey at a young age, having attended my first Weight Watchers meeting when I was 12 years old! Nothing seem to work and I remember asking myself, "What can I do to lose weight?" I finally learned that answer and it truly is no secret - diet and exercise are the key to successful weight loss! Once I had realized that counting calories, making healthier choices and exercising daily could change my life, the weight dropped off and I lost 120 pounds! I had finally reached my goal weight and I planned to maintain it for the rest of my life. If that was the end of the story, it would be a truly happy ending. In my great plans for the future, however, I had failed to recognize one of the key elements of maintaining my weight loss - I … [Read more...]

20 Second Fitness: Week 1

20 second fitness logo

Oh ya, I am on that boat!!! I am so excited to be able to try out the :20 Second Fitness DVD Program! I just finished week one. The first two weeks of this are the "warm-up" weeks, to get your body prepared for more intense full body workouts. The first day or so I was thinking, this is soooooo doable and easy!! But, by day 5 into the first warm-up week, I was starting to feel the burn, and it is JUST the warm-up week. My calves, stomach and thighs are kind of achy. After this first week, I am feeling a bit healthier already. I also find myself a little more energetic. I am really liking this program so far, and can't wait to see how this week will make me feel! I am now starting week 2 tonight :) Very excited about it as I want to lose 20 lbs. by August. Not sure if I will indeed lose that much by August, but hopefully I will have at least lost some and firmed up a bit. I don't see how I would not firm up, with this program though, so I am hopeful!!! I really like … [Read more...]
