Oh, well I think thats probably normal? Don’t most ladies lose so much weight beofre the wedding, and then go back to their”normal size”? So are you hoping to lose 8 lbs in 3 weeks? That seems very difficult. I couldn’t imagine the hard work and restrictions that would go into that. That’s like over 2.5 lbs a week!!!

I wish you luck, stay healthy!

@dynamic_duo:  Oh my!  I could only imagine how tightly my gown would fit me now.  I’m guessing I’ve probably gained about 15-18 pounds since our wedding a year ago.  Too bad it’s all boxed up and preserved or I’d go try it on NOW! 

A great tool that I just started using two days ago is the MyFitnessPal app on my iPhone.  You can also log in online too.  It’s a great way to track what you eat/count your calories and monitor your exercise (or lack thereof, in my case). 

Good Luck!!  I’ll be trying to drop some poundage with you as well!

@dynamic_duo:  I’m sure you’ll lose the 5 lbs. in a snap!  I would love to lose about 15-20 lbs by the end of 2011.  I always tend to put on weight during the summer b/c I’m sitting around more and going on way too many lunch dates with friends (returning to school/work in about 2 weeks will help me).  I certainly hope that app./website works well for you.  It even has a scanning feature which makes it really easy!  So far, I[‘ve been under one day, over one day, and just about right today.  I’ll keep you posted!  We can do it!

You can do it! I lost 7 pounds in a week before! Well, I had first started and I have a ton of weight to lose so it was coming off pretty quickly!
