Ugh I had amazing “plans” to drop a lot of weight before the big day. I did lose a few, but have gained it all back now. And now I am down to the wire with just about THREE and a half months to the day!!! I’m in the first year at a new job combined with wedding planning have been stresssssssed out!!!! I know this is just an excuse, and I would feel better if I exercised, but I always feel like I have no time. When I’m home I feel like I should be working on school work or I am too tired. Or if I do have energy I feel like I should be doing something for the wedding!!!!
I know many of us on here are stressed, so did you lose weight before your wedding? If so how how how did you do it???? And is it possible to do this in a short time frame??

I signed up for a 10k as motivation. So Ive been running my ass off training for that and in turn toning up. Some days I do NOT want to workout but I force myself to. I work 60+ hours a week and I manage to work out it just takes breaking that mental barrier.

I use my fitness pal and log all my calories and exercise 4x a week. With a 40 hour a week job, a 3 year old son, planning a wedding, buying a house…yeah I mean stress and responsibility is all there–you just have to push forward. If nothing else, take 2-3 yoga classes a week. I mean at least that is giving you strength, toning and calming at the same time. You sound like you could benefit from something like that.

I had amazing plans to lose weight too but for some reason my goal of dropping 20 pounds never happened. I know I’ve lost a decent bit but I stopped getting on the scale. I just tracked my calories and watched portion sizes and to be honest I’m 2 days away from the wedding that the stress that comes with the week of, 5 pounds has melted off of me, seriously from my fitting last week to yesterday the seamstress has to take in the dress a little bit more. I know it wasn’t the healthy way to go but I honestly have not even been hungry. Don’t get too worked up over it, you still have plenty of time. Make smart choices in your diet, switch out sodas for water, and if you can try to atleast go for a long walk each evening (the quiet time is great for destressing too).

It depends what weight you are now. If you are a big lady, you should be able to lose a lot of weight very fast, especially if you are strict with yourself. But if you are only a little bit overweight/ not overweight as such but you want to lose a bit of spare tyre in certain areas, you will have an uphill struggle to do it in such a shirt time, even if you work really hard at it. Be honest… what is realistic for you?
