After having my first daughter 13 years ago, I lost my postpartum blues weight and them some and stayed skinny for 7 years. Then came daughter #2 three and a half years ago followed by my son a year and a half ago. Having two babies back to back and a desk job that requires my butt in a chair for 40-50 hours a week has taken a toll on my body. I don't expect to get down to my 150 lb body that I was when I was 21 (which is low on my 6' frame), but I would love to get down to 160 and wear a size 8 or 10 jean again.

Exercise videos
The Crunch videos are great, but are also challenging. If you like waking, try Leslie Sansone (spelling) walking videos. I have one that combines walking with toning exercises. My sister loves her and enjoys her four mile video.

Are You Hormonally Clogged?
No grains at all. No starch basically.

Are You Hormonally Clogged?
So what the author is saying is that your body likes to stay within a certain weight. When you stop dieting, your body automatically adjusts itself back to your "set-point" weight range, which is why yo-yo dieting happens. He says the only way to lose weight for good is to lower your set-point by controlling hormones, which we do by eating naturally. The diet is basically lean meat, veggies and fruits. You can also have whey protein, milled flax seeds, low fat plain yogurt, nuts and low fat cottage cheese. Nothing processed(with the exceptions of the whey and cottage cheese and flax)and no starchy veggies (potatoes and corn). He says you arent expected to follow it 100%, but the closer you follow it the better you are. He says we should be eating protein every four hours, and as many non-starchy veggies as you can stand. I have been trying it since I finished the book on Saturday. It is a little challenging at first, because your body has to sugar detox.

digital or traditional
I use the old-fashioned ones because I question the accuracy of digital scales. My neighbor and I went to bed, bath and beyond this past weekend and tried 5 different scales. Each one gave us a different number. One of them, which was a $50 scale made by a major brand, gave me a 5 lb weight difference from the first time I weighed in to the second time two minutes later. My physician happens to be a medical weight loss doctor as well, and my old fashioned scale at home matched her weight on her fancy shmancy medical clinic scale.
