I hit the 30lbs loss mark on June 12th (or near there) and although I kept working out and I kept eating healthy and watching my portions, no weight seemed to want to drop off me. I think my issue was trying to find that "balance" between l... Read more

In the end, I decided to go with Kris Gethin's Hardcore 12-Week Trainer instead of Lee Labrada's (as I had mentioned in yesterday's blog). Kris seems to be a little more of my style and I'm not a beginner when it comes to weight lifting so this ... Read more

I’m excited to say that even though January was a big struggle for me, I have since been losing steadily. I only lose about a pound a week, which is nice and slow. Sometimes I wish I would lose faster but I know this is a healthy way of doing it... Read more
