I’m a single 35 year old woman and I’ve gain a few pounds in the last three months. I have a date in two weeks and I need to lose some weight because I don’t feel so good about myself. Cooking is not my thing so I prefer eating out, but most of the times I don’t think much about my meal choice.
I learn about diets and fitness on Project Weight Loss.

There are a lot of Lean Cuisine prepared meals in the freezer section. They are low in Weight Watchers Points, so I take one to work every day. You might find you really like them, I sure do. My biggest problem has always been portion size, so these really help. Good luck!

I do the same thing. I don't think it's going to be a fast fix though. You gotta really change your whole lifestyle in order for this to work and be permanent.

Try Isagenix. I just lost 6 lbs this week. It is nutritional cleansing and a superfood shake that tastes amazing!
Isagenix rids your body of toxins and then your body can burn the fat off like it was made to.
Check out these websites and see what I am talking about.


This is the only thing that I have found that works and I am getting healthy.

Those cleanses will be OK for a temp solution...but go back to your regular habits and you'll find the weight will make it's way back onto the scale..plus a few extra lbs!!

THE ONLY WAY TO LOSE WEIGHT AND KEEP IT OFF...unfortunately you are going to have to "cook"...but do it in a different way!! Purchase already cooked chicken, a ceaser salad(make sure the dressing is less than 3g sugar per serving) and poof...there's lunch.
I have a small family, so it's like I'm cooking for myself as well (one child is still taking a bottle, and the other only likes kraft dinner and cheese sandwhiches!! my husband will eat the same as me, but somenights he's not into it)
It took me awhile, but I have a little arsenal of recipes that are quick and easy...most take less than 15mins to do, and I don't stray too far away from them! (i even have a few sweet treats there too!)

To want to lose weight(and stay healthy) but not be willing to cook for yourself is kind of silly...you really can't have one without the other.
