Good for you! And remember , I'm also working my butt off (figuratively and hopefully literally!) too. So when you almost convince yourself to skip an opportunity to workout, think of me, sweating on my treadmill.

Be the kind of woman that when your feet hit the floor each morning the devil says, "Oh crap, she's up!".

Sadly I can't do any riding currently, and no barn chores for 2-3 months. No horse old enough to ride, and no horse to look after yet

As well as drinking lots of water (which was mentioned before), drinking green tea (or oolong) helps you loose weight. I believe it's because it helps you detoxify your body, giving your liver a break and the chance to concentrate on burning fat instead of filtering your body from toxins. Those are the livers two main jobs, filtering your blood from toxins, and making enzymes to burn fat. If it's so busy filtering, it has no time to make enzymes. ;)

Also try to stay away from foods with Fructose. Fructose is addicting and makes you crave for more. ;)

Last tip: eating healthy fats (like fish (not fried, but baked)lol) will help you burn fat as well. It has to do with the liver again. By eatign fat the liver makes enzymes to burn it, and as it is a healthy fat, it burns easily and the enzymes then continue to burning old stored fat.

haha K my scientific explanations are done. ;) It's easier to loose weight if you understand how your body works to burn fat. :)

A ride a day keeps the worries away!

Thanks for that answer!! I'll definitely try fish!!
Excersize I've done today:
- 20 flights of stairs - 20 up, 20 down nonstop
- 30 minutes Just Dance

I'm very out of shape, I was breathing heavy after 5 flights up/down

Also, how are pickles? I'm an emotional eater, and a boredom eater, so, I'm trying to make sure I have small healthy snacks available at all times. I really enjoy pickles, so, how are they?

I eat through my emotions! Wheter it be boredom or upset.
What type of pickles? Some do not have a lot of calories but do have hidden amounts of sugar :) so just check the pack. I have small bags of nuts not salted though and loads of veg to munch on!

Dancing is a great way to lose weight or even just walking, I go for a 30minute walk 5days a week and then in the evening dance using the kinect for 30mins sometimes an hour.

Get very bored at work that's when I usually wanna munch...so I leave money at home so I can't buy any naughty extras.

Let's not forget celery! It takes more calories to digest, than it has to give. So you burn by eatign celery. Wont' do a miracle of course but it will help! :) I find munching on baby carrots help when I want to chew but am not hungry.

Celery is not nice without something to dip it into! But is meant to be super healthy.... I use it in soups as it is better when it is cooked :)

Celery's good! I'm not the biggest carrot fan in general! At least, not raw!

I get tired of the focus being on weight, rather than dimensions because muscle is heavier than fat. If you wish to trim down, try lifting weights. I hear too many women use the excuse I don't want to be built like a man. It won't happen because it takes more male hormones than women have to do that. Start out with whatever you can find around the house and google for info on correct technique. Some exercises built long fiber muscles, other build the power muscles. An exercise program of 20 day, 5 days a week will benefit you. The body does need a day off so schedule the workouts so you don't miss two days in a row. You can also do other things to round out a workout that doesn't seem like a workout. eg. when doing dishes do bum squeezes, tighten and relaxing the glutes. Or when watching tv, get up on your tip toes, tighten all your leg muscles, hot for 5 seconds and relax. 10 or 15 repetitions can be beneficial. BTW don't cut back drastically on the sodas or it will set up cravings that seem to cause a person to overindulge.
