    I may give it a go, though didn't last long last time tried it. Xx

  • Hey, I will join in - I have seen the levels on youtube so will grab them off there.

    I would love to be 9s10lbs by my wedding, which is in 91 days!

    I am 5 foot 1, 11 stone, and a size twelve. Should we put measurements up: like neck, bust, waist, hips, maybe arms and thighs or something? To keep motivated?

  • Brilliant! Yes! Here we go then! I have my weights (1kg) waiting for me

    Downstairs! We can do this! I'm going to take some

    Pics of myself tomorrow and store them

    Somewhere safe so that I can see if there's been any change in 30


    Do I have to stop drinking wine? Or should I continue to eat and drink as normal? I HATE dieting and LOVE my food x 

  • Ps FFRRR - measurements are an excellent idea! I shall

    Post mine on here in the morning image


  • Give up the wine? Oh dear. This might be tricky. Ok, I'll Try. That might be tough though. The things we do for our weddings eh? If you guys put your measurements on here tomorrow I'll pop them on a little spreadsheet and keep track for us if you like? 30 days to go... 

    Good luck everyone!! X

  • Ace, I have just changed my name from FFRRR to this because the old name was crap and done in a rush. I will put my measurements up tomorrow.

    Could someone share details of the 30 day shred? I would love to join you but don't know what it involves. .. i am 5.5 a size 12 and just under 11 stone. Thanks

  • Hi MrsTodd,

    30 day shred is Jillian Michaels fitness DVD thing where you do 20 mins exercise every day for 30 days (following her DVD). It's 3 levels that you work your waythrough.

    I beleive the videos are available on you tube so if you don't have the DVD you can still join us.

    My friend is on day twenty-something and you can really tell on her. Fingers crossed it works for us.

    Apparently it's quite tough though. 

    When I can drag myself out of bed I'm going to do my measurements and then do the DVD for the first time. I'll let you know how I get on!

    Hopefully Jillian will get you over that brick wall!


  • Hello everyone,

    ive just finished my first level 1 30ds workout! My arms are killing!

    I decided to do it in my kitchen and I have to say I spent most of the time thinking 'oh my god my kick boards are dirty' or 'I really need to wipe my cupboard doors'. Maybe the distraction technique worked? Ha ha! We shall see!


    ok, my stats are as follows:

    weight 9st 10 1/4

    thigh 22 1/2 inch; neck 14 inch; arm 10 inch; waist 27 inch; hips/bottom 40 inches


    I think Gillian is going to drive me mad. 

    Let me know how you guys get on and post your stats (if you want to) x

  • Hey smiler,

    how many squats/ sit ups/ planks do you have to do? I'm rubbish at the plank!


  • Wow I'm so impressed! Looking forward to day 30 so that we can suss out the results!

    My h2b has just seen my 30ds DVD and said 'what a load of rubbish!' - well, now I have extra motivation to prove him wrong! 

    Good luck x

    I am getting married next year but I am size 12-14 and only 5ft 3. Weight just under 10 stone. i need to lose loads but not sure where to start. This thread had motivated me. Is the 30ds just exercise or is there a diet to follow? Had anyone trii the insanity workout? x 

  • ScSc Posts: 35

    I've heard of them. But never tried them. I really don't know where to start. It seems like I don't weigh too much but I'm quite busty and my belly is big. I love junk food too. It's going to be so difficult but I really need the motivation to get this nailed and have a lovely figure for my wedding day and a beach body for the honeymoon lol. Smiler 1 , what fitness regime are you following? x

  • nats2013nats2013 Posts: 6,253

    a little bit of advice about the 30ds..... the cool down is crap and you will be hurting tomorrow if thats what you do to stretch out at the end. if youve ever done a davina dvd do that cool down or find it on youtube. itl make the world of difference and make day 3 much easier


    i need to get back on the six week six pack as i only have 76 days to gooooooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!

    Hi ladies, can I join in!! I will need to start tomorrow tho, as I have just been out for a massive meal with the in laws whoops!! I will take measurements and post on here aswell.


  • Hey,

    So I decided to do a  10 mile cycle today, so will start my 30ds tomorrow am instead - I am knackered now.

    I know everyones body is different but I am surprised by the difference in weight and clothes size we all are. I am 11 stone and five foot 1 but a size 12 in all my clothes. I want to lose 20 pounds in 2.5 months, so I will be doing this alongside slimming world.

    Well done on doing day 1, Mrs Mustard to be! I will join you tomorrow!
