wow isnt that a horrible feeling?! I put my dress on over the holiday to show my sisters and my zipper BARELY made it up. It shook some sense into me because I need to look phenomenal on my wedding day. So I excerise at least 4 times a week. The jillian michaels 30 day shred is amazing. I can get through the whole workout and there is 3 levels to keep moving up to. I love it. I also cut out the sweet snacks i eat all day. I keep in mind how much I eat throughout the day and what I decide to eat. I dont like to diet because I ALWAYSSSS break it so Im just trying to make better choices and its working so far! Good Luck! I know you can do it. You have plentyyyy of time. Just dont give up.

I love the 30 Day Shred. It only takes 20 min and it leaves me feeling completely worked out. I’m trying to fit into my dress too- I have 10lbs to lose by 8/6/11. What all the others have said was awesome advice that I’m following (or trying to)! No more pop and juice, less carbs, drink half your body weight in ounces of H2O daily…Hang in there! Losing weight is hard but there is lots of motivation and advice on this site to pull us through.

Good luck! Lots of great advice here, but I’d also add to focus on the eating healthy part. I map out a weekly dinner menu each Saturday, and make my grocery list based on it (so I don’t buy too much junk while I’m there). I try to have mostly vegeterian or fish dishes, and have meat and pasta only once a week.
It takes time but it’s worth it, I feel that I’m really eating healthy meals!

Weight watchers definitely works, as long as you stick with the program.

thanks so much ladies….. i started walking yesterday (WOO HOO!!! forgot how much i loved it…) with the hopes that by next month i can be in better shape to start the couch to 5k.. ive done that before and loved it… i wasn’t to big of a fan of 30 Day Shred. i love being outside but i also love the gym, so i am also gonna join the YMCA here where i live and take advantage of all the classes they offer ( i may be a big brave dog and try a dance class!!) im gonna try to start weight watchers in the next couple of months but in the mean time i am going to start eating better on my own (that way i can make good habits for me…) and utilizing sparkpeople.com or the dailyplate.com/livestrong… and the post and blogs that were offered to me to go back over and see how other have lost weight and gotten healthy…
now it may seem odd but i actually made a list of the things that were offered to me on this thread. i have them in a notebook and i am going to go over them tonight and make a workout/eating habits book. i think that would be good for me because i still, at 28, keep a journal.
i am so thankful to you guys… i felt so stupid and fat when i tried on my dress and it didn’t zip… it didn’t even come close. but now, now i feel like i can do it. that when my day comes, my dress is going to zip up so easily and i am going to feel good about it…and i am going to remember all of you guys who are always there with helpful, meaningful and loving advice… without you i would still be in that dark dungeon of feeling sorry for myself….

I agree – 30 day shred, Jillian Michaels. You CANT not lose weight doing that.
