    While I love my plus sized body,

    I want to be healthier before I start to try to get pregnant. My goal is to lose 45 pounds by March 31 -- that's roughly 5.6 pounds/month for 8 months... It's not an aggressive goal, which will make it easier for me to obtain it. I took all my measurements and weight today so...

    A year and half ago I was 165,

    a bit heavy but fit. It was probably because I worked out two and half hours five days a week and was a vegetarian for a year. I just let myself go so much because I was stressed about grades and college and everything happening in my family. I gained so much weight. But I'm...

    I finally found something that's working

    for me! I am a 32 year old female with PCOS. (a hormone imbalance that, among other things, makes it incredibly hard to lose weight) I can't believe it. I've lost 37 pounds since Mid-February. I'd be happy to share my experience with this product!

    Now I am seeing results with the nutritional

    program that I'm using. Close to a week and my stomach is shrinking. So excited. Can't really exercise cause I broke my knee last year, just walking, so this program helps.

    I really did good all week!

    I ran six days and monitored what I was putting in my mouth. But I can always count on my family to somehow guilt me into ruining all my hard work. I understand that what I put in my mouth is ultimately my decision, but it is easy to forget. My family knows that I have always...
