Honestly, I would like to get down to the size I was when I met my fiance [which was a 16/17 in juniors], I am currently an 18/20 in women [depending on which brand I’m wearing], but I’m not going to kill myself over it. Sure, i’d like to be thinner, but if that means starving myself – well, then that just isn’t going to happen. I have poor eating habits [not overeating, just poor eating – i eat once a day, don’t drink enough fluids, ect.], so my metab is all kinds of messed up – I also have PCOS, which makes it stupidly hard to lose weight.

This is me when I was a 16/17 [yeah I know you can’t tell much from the angle, hard to take a picture of yourself in a bathroom with a cell phone!]

[the shirt is also made up of swear words, so don’t mind that :P]

Id like to lose at least 10 to 20 lbs and tone the rest, my Fiance is a crossfit/weight lifting/gym junkie and is a way better eater then myself ( I love pastaLaughing) So I got myself a gym membership and am going to start Zumba classes and start running again I have about a year and a half so as long as im not lazy and stick to this (maybe change my eating habits) I should be good to go 🙂

I’m currently between a size 8 and 10. I would like to lose about 15-20lbs before September.

I wanted to lose 20. I’m at least a quarter of the way there. It could be more but I had to put the scale away for awhile. It’s good for some people but checking so often just discouraged me.

SInce I became in engaged in April, I have lost 30 pounds. It has been tough because I will lose it and then gain some of it back. Then lose it again. I’m currently at the lowest weight I have ever been in my adult life, 232, having just lost 10 pounds this past month.

By the time wedding comes around in July, I’d like to be down another 30 to 40. I would really like to be about 190 but would be good with 200 too. If however, I stay where I am then I’m okay with that. FH loves me the way I am and I am good with how I am. But someday soon I will be under 200 and that will be a very happy day for me.

I want to lose around about 20-30lbs..  already lost 5lbs in 2weeks from Zumba, jogging/running every morning and cutting the crap out of what I eat. Fingers crossed it carries on this way – My motivation is that I would rather be covered in sweat working out, than covered in clothes at the beach!

I have 3 months until my first dress fitting so I would love to lose about 20 lbs and tone up. I was contemplating returning thing my dress for a bigger size but I need to get my eating and exercise under control. Wedding planning is stressful and I would rather go got Zumba to relieve stress than eat. Bag of chips.

I’m aiming for 30 pounds. I always shock myself in the mirror as to how heavy I am, even though I’ve lost weight :/

Probably 50 lbs. Maybe 75 if I am lucky!

Ideally, I want to lose about 50 lbs. However, my wedding is in early June next year, and I know I don’t want to lose too much weight in between fittings, because that can create some crazy complications. So that being said, by the end of March I am aiming to lose 25-30lbs. I’m really not comfortable with my weight right now. I know my fiance loves me how I am, but I want to get back to feeling beautiful and healthy.

16-20lbs more. I’ve lost 30 so far. That will be a total of ~45/50lbs down before the wedding. I’ve lost weight probably 5 years ago (only 20lbs) when I was younger, but I was stupid about it and didnt make lifestyle changes so I gained all of it back and more.

10-20 lbs. I’m fine with just toning up but I’d really like to be about 105 lbs and then eat back 5 lbs on the honeymoon. lol

I have 3 months and would love to loose 10 lbs. But I will be fine if I don’t. My size 6 dress fits perfectly (it’s a corset top) and I know I will never look like I did when he met me (about 20 lbs lighter) but I am not one of those girls who stresses over weight. I love to eat:)
