So my wedding is 4 weeks from tomorrow. I am happy that I’ve lost some weight and have been trying really hard over the past few months to track calories, eat well, etc… I think it’s a good life-long, healthy discipline and having a wedding to prepare me has taught me to do a better job with staying focused. However, I know I am not going to be where I hoped to be on my wedding day. I want to celebrate what I have done rather than be upset, but I do admit to being a little disappointed in myself. Has anyone else worked hard and not achieved the results they hoped to?

@cafegirl: I probably won’t reach my goal either and I know EXACTLY how you feel
Losing the last 10 is so hard.

I can understand too. I’m trying to see how to eat better while still being efficient for the next few weeks. It’s tough knowing all these holidays are coming up, lol.
Has anyone amp’ed it up for their “last weeks”?

i didnt meet mine. part of me was disappointed, part of me knew that i have skewed body image and need to be happy with how far i had gone in the long run– since i have maintained at 70 lb weight loss for 3 years..

Nope. I did not meet mine. I was bummed, as I had worked fairly hard. However, two weeks before the wedding I told myself I would not stress out about weight. My husband loves me the way I look, and I took the time to relax and make sure my skin was healthy and face was clear instead.
Now that I’m married, and I don’t have a deadline or a white dress to wear while everyone’s staring at me, I’m working to get into better shape.
Best of luck to you ladies still trying! I know it’s difficult, but you’ll look great either way!
