I don’t want to add a negative note here, but our original date was 27th July last year. I didn’t lose the weight for that date. We only postponed because of money, though.
It’s so hard to find the motivation – it usually doesn’t matter what everyone else says, it’s something so hard to define that happens inside your own head.
I only found my mojo this week, really, and like yourself I would love to lose 70-80 for the weding, but I really don’t have that kind of time. Now I’m working on a reasonable but still kind of tough 30-40. I’ll just have to do at that lol!
If you start a sensible plan now, or the minute you get out of bed tomorrow morning, you have what, 32 ish weeks? That is a great amount of time, at say 2lb per week, which is perfectly doable, that’s 64 lbs down. That’d be perfect, wouldn’t it?
You need to be healthy and happy on your wedding day: the particular number on the scale or on the tag of your dress isn’t really that important. I didn’t read all of the other responses cos it’s bedtime here, but you can still eat quite a lot and have dramatic weight loss – particularly in the first 20 or so lbs down. Just keep reducing intake until you stop losing, more or less!
It’s the silver lining to having a lot of weight to lose – you can lose a lot of weight fairly quickly!
Plenty of lean meat & fish, all the veg & fruit you want, and easy on the carbs, specially the fried and sugary nasties. Lots of water. As much exercise as you can happily do without injury.
Mrs. Glasses’ recent blog post on weight loss is really quite good. I know she didn’t have as much to lose as us, but the main points are still the same.
Best of luck, chick, and try not to let it get you down. Every day you work on it is another day closer to your goal, so don’t wait any longer to start!
