I am hoping on about 15 more, at least. I’m down about 4 already. I have about 4 months to do it, so that is definitely a good amount of time to lose is the healthy way.

I’m just trying to watch my calorie intake, eat healthy and I’m going to start the Couch to 5K and I bought the 30 Day Shred too.

I am really set on trying to ignore the thinner is better messages and stay as I am.  Which is not model skinny, but pretty fit.  As much as I’m terrified of gaining weight, I’m also terrified of losing 10+ pounds and not looking like myself at my wedding.  Then spending the rest of my life staring at wedding pictures and thinking about how skinny I was for like three days ever.

That’s a great outlook, Entangled. My goal is to generally get more fit and increase my normal activity level…I want to be at a healthy weight that I can maintain. Hoping to be there in a year, and I would probably be about 10-15 lbs lighter.

I kind of resent the insinuation that I’m just trying to lose weight for the wedding. What I failed to mention is that I have GAINED 35lbs since we got engaged. I am trying to get back to looking like myself.

I am not obsessed with my weight. I just want to be healthy and at the moment, I am not.

I agree – it really should be about being a healthy “you”.  Although granted, part of the motivation does come from the fact that you want to look fantastic on your wedding day!  

I am not so much about the losing weight as much as I am the tighten up my tummy.  I am down about 10 lbs from last year at this time, and I hope to lose about 10lbs. more.  Mainly though I want to tone up.

i’ve lost 25lbs so far. i’d like to lose another 20 or so. ive gained a lot of weight over the past 2 years, so the first 25 was pretty easy to lose. ive just been watching what i eat, and drinking water. ive slacked off a little in the past 2 weeks, but i was going to the park everyday and walking/jogging at least 2 miles….depending on the day, i would do more. i also started doing the 30 day shred.

5-8lbs – so I can be at my normal weight when I eat all the good stuff around wedding-time!

I am trying to lose 5-10 more lbs. I got really off track for a while but have lost 3 lbs. so far. But even after the wedding I will try to stick with healthier habits. I’d like to be around 125lbs. I am 140lbs. right now. I am eating right and trying to tone up too.

about 10 pounds in 2.5 months… doable. but its less about pounds than inches for me. i want to tone up and loose the flab. and muscle weighs more than fat! lol so i would be content to lose 2-3 inches off my waist and 1-2 inches off my arms and legs. LOL totally doable

I have lost 11 lbs since May… Want to lose another 4-7 lbs, and I have 2 months to do it. The bigger thing for me at this point is toning up my arms.

5-10.  I’m trying to put as little pressure on myelf as possible.  Anything lost is a bonus.

I’m doing The Firm and watching what I eat.
