Alright Bees! I need your help!
My wedding is in 5 months and I recently hit my highest weight ever. I am not happy with myself at the moment. I have my dress and it fits fine and it’s pretty, but I want to feel stunning and confident in it. At the moment, that is definitely not the case.
I have been on the weight loss roller coaster my entire life, so I’m not new to the whole weight loss thing. But, for some reason, even though I have a wedding to get ready for, I cannot seem to find any motivation whatsoever.
I love junk food and I’m having a hard time saying NO to it!
So, show my your before/after weight loss photos! Share tips and tricks that have helped you stay motivated!
(Just to give you an idea of where I’m at weight-wise – I am about 5’5″ and around 198 lbs. I’d love to lose at least 20-30 lbs before my May wedding.)

@lindythomps: I’ve posted this idk how many times, but I dont mind sharing again! I did the Ideal Protein plan with alternative products (protein bars from walmart). I lost 70lb in 6 months. Its strict, but thats what works best for me. Rigid guidelines & no venturing off at all. Its tough, but the weight falls off! I’m 5’5″ as well, started this plan at 219. Got to 149 (not gonna lie, Thanksgiving has me at 157, but I’m working out now & know I’ll get back down, or just tone from here). Send me your email address & I can forward you the info I used to do this plan. Good luck!!!!

I used Weight Watchers about 5 years ago (can’t believe it’s been that long!) and lost 23lbs in 6 months (and that was with a 5lb gain over Christmas…oops). Taught me a lot about healthy eating and portion sizes. WW has it’s flaws of course but it definitely puts you on track and hopefully points you to eat even better. I don’t follow it anymore and I probably put on 5-7lbs after, but I maintain that weight. I started at 148 and went to 125. The first picture is a couple of months before I started WW and the other pic was taken around 125lbs.

@theEguarantee: You are gorgeous! I want to see results like yours! I will private message you my email address, because I’d love to hear more about the plan that you did. Trying to lose weight around the holidays is insanely hard!
Oh, and my fiance would LOVE your shirt in the second set of pictures! He’s a huge Saints fan. I am a HUGE Peyton Manning fan, so I’ve been watching a lot of Denver Broncos ball lately.
@NewfieBullet: Great results!! I am currently a member of WW online, but have been struggling with logging my points. You are right though, it does help you keep in mind portion control and making healthier choices.

I had a breast reduction around 155 pounds….the the weight started melting away. I guess I’ll blame divorce on my weighloss. First picture was about 5-6 months after my 2nd child was born. second was about a year after my breast reduction. details under the pictures…
