@vanessa7:  My best suggestion is join the gym. Its really motivating to see the changes in your own body through weight training and cardio. Weight training is the key though, because it allows your body to continue burning extra calories even after you’ve stopped working out.

You also need to cut out the fast food, and processed junk. Sure a cheat day once a week is fine, but don’t eat much more crap then that. Check out some clean eating blogs, for ideas or even look into some Paleo recipes. Also check out skinnytaste.com AND cut out all juices and soft drinks, those are totally empty calories.

The only thing thats going to motivate you, is you. Sure there are days when I can’t make it to the gym (this week for example, I only could go once, due to an injury) but you better believe after I rest up I’m going to be in that gym come Monday. Be accountable to YOURSELF.

You could lose 15 lbs by December, but you need to work for it.

Since going to the gym, I’ve actually gained weight but lost inches, thats whats important. I’m losing the fat I don’t want and slowly gaining lean muscle mass that I DO want.

If you need any workout suggestions let me know! Remember, you CAN do this, you just need to push yourself.


PS – Your wedding is on my birthday woooo! 🙂

Please don’t be embarrassed!  There is so much stress put on brides to be skinny on their wedding day.  It’s natural to want to look your best.  Don’t stress, losing weight is HARD!  I definitely agree with joining a gym, or finding a workout routine that will work for you.  If you think running might be your thing give couch to 5k a try.  It’s a great beginners running program!  As for diet, eating healthy and in moderation is the key.  Weight watchers works for most people who try it.  I have tried the new plan a couple of times and personally it just didn’t work for me.  If you’re looking for something to track your diet I suggest using My Fitness Pal.  Super easy to use, huge database of foods, and best of all it’s free!
