@mrs-j-to-be:  Yes you can do it (as long as it is a realistic weight you are aiming for your body type). Its only a pound a week. I am also getting married in May and would like to lose 5-6.

I think that’s very realistic.  I lost 10lb last June in 30 days by doing a workout video (25 mins a day) and eating healthy.  I think the key is just to watch portion sizes every meal. Good luck!

@mrs-j-to-be:  that’s very realistic. I lost 15 pounds in 3 months on WW. You just have to stick with it.

definitely doable! Watch the grains you’re eating and try to focus on a lot of water-based foods (ie fruits and veggies) and protein – both will keep you full and satiated!

PS. Its more about FOOD than exercise… pay close attention and you will succeed!

Stay positive! It is totally doable! And even if you lose 10 lbs instead of 15, you will still feel a lot better and probably won’t even mind the extra 5 that didn’t come off. The key is just be consistent. Try to make small healthy decisions every day, and if you slip up once it’s ok! Just don’t let it pull you into a spiral where it becomes a consistent problem. You have plenty of time to go, so pick yourself up and keep doing what needs to be done! =)

You can do it!

My goal is 30 lbs in 3 months. I’m doing engagement pictures in May and I REEEEEEEEEEEEALLY want to look healthy and have that natural glow I used to have when I was fit.

What I do is keep a food journal and FORCE myself to keep up with it. WW online does that but it’s easy to slack.

What has also been helping me is dedicating each day to one challenge. At the end of the day, if I made my challenge, I can have one coconut milk ice cream sandwich (I’m a teacher, I figured if this works on the kids, I should try bribery type motivation too).The one that I enjoy the most is Weigh-In Wendesday. It’s the only day of the week where I weigh myself so it’s a surprise and I’m not constantly freaking out everyday about the numbers going up or down.

If you want, maybe we could partner up for motivation?

@JackiBean:  30 lbs in 3 months is probably a little unrealistic (although it depends on your starting weight).  1-2 lbs a week is considered a healthy amount of weightloss if you are trying to lose fat and keep it off. And most people don’t consistently lose 2 lbs every week, and 30 lbs would be more than that anyway.  Focus on healthy eating and exercise and how your clothes feel. The number isn’t as important as toning up and losing those inches. I like to use a measuring tape in addition to the scale to track my progress.

@MrsRichard:  Well I was really lazy for the first month.

And I eat horrible too, so I completely get you. 

Start off at 3 miles at a 5.5 pace. Do this 4 times a week with a 15 minute strench afterwards , throw in some planks and reverse sit ups in there at the end. 

 

Do this for 2 weeks, then you should be able to increase your runs. Run 4 miles at a 6 pace. 

do a 2 minute plank, 75 sit ups, 50 reverse sit ups, 50 verticle leg crunches. 

Do it in sets if you like.

By the end of the 2nd month, you should be running 6 miles at a 7 pace and being able to do all those ab work outs without too much trouble. 

 

 

After 2 months I was down to this.
