Exersize
HI! I do a treadmill work out for 15 mins as a warm up to toning. Here is my routine: Treadmill - 1-3 mins warm up, 3-5.5 mins brisk walk, 5.5-6 mins slow walk, 6-8.5 mins brisk walk increase incline, 8.5-9 mins slow walk, 9-12 mins brisk walk, 12-14 walk brisk/slow, 14-15 mins cool down. Ball crunches 15 (3 reps) Weights on ball Reverse crunches 10 (3 reps) arm bands workout This has mostly toned me. Adding longer treadmill will increase fat/weight loss.

New Express Plan
I'm on the express plan, week 1, and so far I'm having trouble getting all the foods in. I was put on the express plan because I'm a slow loser. It's supposed to help you lose faster thats why it's so restricted. Also, I'm not taking LA Lites or the Supplements. I didn't want the Lites and I don't have to take supplements. I am on plan #3 so that might be different from other plans. I hope I lose, not gain!! Guess there's only 1 way to find out. :? Good luck to all!!

Advice?
If you don't like veggies...try V8 Fusion. It counts as 2 veggies and 1 fruit per 8oz and there is some yummy flavors. My favorite is the peach mango. =0)

New Plans and measuring plate?
YES it's true!! New plans with more starches!! I went in last night and they were so excited to tell about it. The new plans start next week! :d

Take Off (this really works)
The Take Off is GREAT! It really does work...especially if you need that "extra" boost to get ya back on track. Brandi ~ at the beginning they do have you eat unlimited proteins but when you do it later, they portion out the foods instead. The beginning TAke Off is different than the on plan Take Off. The Center suggests doing it like every 2 weeks or something...I've done it once on plan and it worked! :d
