I am really struggling to loose the weight too. I cant seem to get motivated.  I am very dissapointed in myself. I am going to really give it more effort and see how it goes. My wedding it in two months.  In all reality, it is just about portion control and excercise.

I lost a TON of weight before the wedding – about 60 lbs. in the preceding eighteen months – but I didn’t quite make it to my goal.  I would have liked to lose another ten or fifteen.

That being said, I was really pleased with how I looked, and I think I will hit that goal by this summer.  The season is just starting with my performance company, and it’s *really* strenuous work.  I always end up losing weight during the course of a season.

I will probably not reach my weight goal either….BUT, I decided to do a triathalon 3 months after my wedding.  So THAT is my new goal.  So, I am still losing weight (although I am afraid when I step on the scale tomorrow it will not be good news), but my new goal is a fitness, rather than weight goal…..(FI also makes me feel beautiful, sexy, etc).  

I am have been trying very hard to care less about the number on the scale and more abot how my clothes fit and how far I can swim/bike/run every day.  But yes, I had a weight-range in mind for my wedding, and I am sure I will be 10 – 15 lbs over that in June.  And yes, it blows…..

I had hoped to lose 10 lbs (to make a total of 60 since my heaviest), but I have lost maybe 3 or 4. However, my body composition has changed a lot and I’ve gone down a bit in size… just shy of a full size. I’ve got a lot more muscle and a lot less fat, so I’m okay with that. I just wish my arms weren’t so big. Having a lot of muscle in them now, but still having some fat over that muscle, just makes them look big.

I would like to, but I am having the hardest time getting motivated. I’ll be motivated for a week or two, but then fall back into old habits. It’s hard.

Yeah, I definitely won’t.  I’m tired of my body. I need a new one.  Sheesh.

I’ve lost 20lbs and my dress is way too big… but I’m still not happy with the way I’ve stalled in my weight loss.  I’m not meant to be thin by any means, but I was hoping to at least get down about 15lbs more.  Then again, I haven’t seen that number since sophomore year of high school so maybe I should just be happy where I am.  Sigh.

@unixfairy: First let me say you are amazingly beautiful. I don’t see where you need to lose any weight!

I hear ya though. Keep your chin an and be proud of what you have accomplished so far. It sounds like you have had a lot to overcome with the car accident and medication.

I too was in a car accident 6 years ago. At the time I weighed 128. On my frame that is perfect. (some say too skinny) My neck was injured severely and I have never fully recovered. It hurts do do even the most basic exercises.

I topped out at 191 in October and have now lost 30 pounds but my goal was to lose 60 by my wedding. I’m still trying but right now my dress is being altered down to where I was at my last fitting. I pushed my next fitting back 2 weeks to try and lose more even though the seamstress told me not to. hehe


All in all I am proud of what I have lost and now have a new goal of 60 by June. 🙂

@unixfairy:  That would be fabulous.  I like my butt though it could be toned.  Hah.  Sigh.  I really do wish it were that simple for people like us that really do try.

I remember being at work one day saying something about wanting to lose weight.  Someone brought in snacks though so I had a little bit of it.  One of my co-workers came in and said something like “Oh, you said you want to lose weight but you still eat..”  That really ticked me off.  I told her that my problem is not the eating, it’s my metabolism.  I didn’t get into details with her, but I really do need to get my thyroid checked out.

Bright side: My fiancé always jokes that he wants to put on weight for the wedding, and then lose it. So that when he shows his wedding pics to people, they will say “wow! you lost so much weight! you look great!”
