    I'm trying to lose 50 lbs. It's something I've been trying to do for a while...however the wedding has brought it to the top of my list of things to do. I've been doing it the old fashioned way...exercise! Also portion control has been a big thing for me. HTH!

    I got married May 24. I started Weight Watchers in mid-January and lost 30 pounds by my wedding date! I love weight watchers and really highly recommend it

    You have to be extremely disciplined to do this but I would recommend Quick Weight Loss Centers. I tried it and in the month I actually stuck to it I lost about 10 pounds; it's a year program. The problem I had with it is I'm not the best cook in the world and the diet really requires cooking, creativity, and discipline. It's a bit on the expensive side so I would definitely look into it before jumping the gun and signing up. There are a couple of ppl at my office that actually stuck to it and lost dramatic amounts of weight.

    Competition!  We have "The Biggest Loser" with his family.  It started with everyone putting in $20 and we weight in every Sunday morning.  If you gain a pound you have to put in $5 for evey pound.  At the end (which was 12 weeks) whoever lost the most weight won the pot.  During the competition I did detox and lost 15lbs (this was a year ago) and have never gained it back.

    I did Isagenix.  Best $100 I have ever spent!  I lost 15lbs in a week and a half and never gained a single 1lb back, which I was very surprise since I thought a huge portion of the weight was water weight.  I think I am going to start again.  I've lost 4 lbs since, but nothing drastic.  I just need the discipline to do it again.  My friend does it about every other month and he has lost 60lbs so far, and never gains it back.  I feel detox teaches me how to eat and acknowledge when I am full to stop.

    DETOX INFO HERE TOO PLEASE! Tiffany.Rousseau @ gmail.com Jessi- I have lost 35 pounds so far and want to lose another 30 before my wedding. I am a size 10 now and it is all thanks to Jenny Craig. The program is a little pricey, but it has really made me be accountable and learn how to eat better.

    While on the subject, I thought I'd share with you guys that I was VERY successful with Nutrisystem. I started it in Oct 2006 and by Chrismas I was down 20lbs. I continued on it for another 4 months or so and kept that weight off for almost a year. Unfortunately I burned out on NS and gained it all back and then some between Oct 2007 and now. I have tried to get back on the program b/c I found it to be easy as pie the first time but for some reason I could not commit this time around and I think it's b/c I got sick of the foods. I think I'm going to give NS one more honest try before doing this cleanse only b/c as much as the cleanse results sound amazing, the process sounds miserable. Point of this post is that Programs like Weight Watchers, Jenny Craig and Nutrisystem ALL WORK... you just have to stick to them. If I were to do 2 - 3 months of strictly following NS I'd lose the weight and that is what I plan to do... I have to!
