I’ve had great results with Kayla Itsines’ 12 week guide. I’ve never been so fit! I don’t have any transformation pics handy but she reposts plenty on Instagram if you want to look them up.

Have you tried using My Fitness Pal?  Logging your calories in / out and having the support of other people also working on the same thing are both very helpful.  You’ve got 5 months – that’s 2.5 pounds a month or 0.6 pounds a week.  You can DEFINITELY do that if you work at it!  But get started now!!

Yeah it’s a free app, and there’s also a website.  It’s great motivation if you really commit to logging everything!  If you join, feel free to add me, I’m “throoper”.  Just search for the username.

And yes, diet really is key.  They say 20% of weightloss is exercise, 80% is diet.  And especially if you’re not really keeping track of what you’re intaking, it’s easy to eat more than you should.  I should know, I gained like 15 pounds after my wedding last year by enjoying a little too much rich food and wine ; )

I hope so! I’m a Feb 2015 bride too (also in FL!!) and I want to lose at least 15lbs more. I’m down 5lbs already. 

I definitely think it’s possible! 

And yes, the pumpkin spice latte will be the death of my weight loss plan. LOL.

You have plenty of time! I’d second the Myfitnesspal recommendation and I also say lift some heavy weights! I started lifting 2 months ago and I’ve not really lost any weight but I have dropped two dress sizes! Everything feels tighter and looks better, so if toning up is your goal it’s definitely worth a go. New Rules of Lifting for Women is a great place to start if you’re interested.

You have more than enough time. Eat healthy more consistenly because yes, diet is 80% of it and abs are made in the kitchen. Also second the lift heavy a PP said. It takes YEARS to become so muscular where most women think its “manly” so don’t be afraid to lift.

MyFitnessPal is awesome.  I lost 25 pounds between last September and last March using it. Can’t recommend it highly enough.
