Hey GIRLS! :) So now that Ive lost weight I can tell you how Im loosing it.....
Im staying between the calorie intake suggested by sparkpeople of 1200-1600cal. With PCOS Ive been told you want to eat lots of veggies, protein, and fiber. I stay away from carbs as much as possible!!! And I dont mind fatty foods as long as their low in calorie. I dont concentrate so much on the fiber as I do the rest. I only eat white meat chicken, fish, turkey. I wish we lived in a world where everyone lived in small villages, you grew your own veggies, and you walked EVERYWHERE. But were re not. So I stay away from processed foods. Even stick my nose up to frozen veggies. When shopping I think NATURAL and FRESH FRESH FRESH! Im still working on eliminating all the processed out of my diet. But Ive gotten rid of alot. Ive been drinking lots of water and glasses of skim milk and tea with SPLENDA. I dont mind OJ but I just prefer my milk. I love pop! This past week Ive had 2 cans. BUT I fit it into my meal plan. Also if I drink a pop I like to either workout right before I eat or sometime after and I add extra workouts to my day. Gotta tell yourself if you want the pop then theirs work to be done!
Now as for working out Ive been doing anywhere from 20-90min a day. Mostly its been 40min. Ive been doing my own research on videos online from sparkpeople and youtube. I like the cardio kickboxing routine on sparkpeople as well as the pilate abs. On youtube Ive found AWESOME workout videos by TIFFANY ROTHE! Check them out! She has a '10 min Booty Shaking Waist Workout- Lose inches off your waist by shaking your hips!' and let me tell ya I was SOOO sore the next day! Best part is I wasnt dying at the end. I felt it right in my waist too! Some other good videos are:

'Lean and Lovely Lower Abs Beach Body workout with Tiffany Rothe'
'Lean and lovely Lower Abs Workout part 2 by Tiffany Rothe. Get your abs bikini ready!!'
Then these 2 which I havnt done yet but they look like they really make you work it...

If a muscle group is to sore to work I modify my workout routine to target those that arent. I also allow myself to get enough SLEEP! If most of my body is super sore I do take a day off from working out. Or just go for a light walk to help with the soreness.
Im not taking any meds to loose weight. My plan is to loose weight the way I described above until I stop loosing weight then Ill up what I do or change my workouts. I just want to shed the lbs before I get to serious in toning my body. Want a nice stomach but a small firm one versus big. I set my goal to loose 47 lbs by my birthday which is end of february. Well Im going to work more towards by xmas. Eventually I want to cleanse my body drinking shakeology and start doing insanity, turbo fire, and p90 workouts.
OK now for the exciting part....
