You can definitely do it! What will definitely help the most is having some one workout with you! And don’t forget the hive is here for you!!!

make sure to watch what you eat!! that’s my biggest problem lol

Corgi…you do NOT suck! You are human and we all have our weaknesses.

I have recently started to try to be more regular in terms of working out, and when I ABSOLUTELY don’t want to do it, I just picture my wedding day and think about the fact that I won’t want to look back later and wish I’d worked harder.

You still have plenty of time to start feeling better about yourself through fitness and nutrition, but please don’t let the number of the scale define how you think about yourself. Clearly, you Fiance is head-over-heels in love with YOU, as you are.

Do what you can between now and the wedding so that you can feel your best, but certainly don’t look down on yourself if you don’t happen to hit the number you want.

Try the flat belly diet. It is the greatest EVER. It is more like a great cookbook and lifestyle change based on good fats. Good luck!

Good luck! Weight is such a tricky thing, especially when you’re in a stressful job/school. I feel you on exercising, although luckily I start to like it after about two or three weeks of consistent workouts. But those first 2-3 weeks are awful! 

Keep us updated. ๐Ÿ™‚ I look forward to hearing how it goes!

You can do it!!! Create a plan. Those who fail to plan, plan to fail unfortunately.

Unlike you, I’ve struggled with my weight my entire life. Its never been easy. (5’7” and between an 8-16 since Junior high) However, now that I am a married lady, it seems that I’m finally starting to get things to click…

I don’t know if this will help, but please know that I definitely feel for you. Weight loss is definitely not easy. Especially in the society we live in. Anyway, from years and years of dieting, I think I should now have a PhD in this so let me just give you a few tips that I’ve learned.

-You need to determine if you are “rebellious” or if you like to go with the crowd. Weight watchers is a good program. I did it for years, and did lose weight, but realized that I was getting majorly bored and tired of these other women telling me what to do. So, I quit. Some women do great with the program, others do better marching to the beat of their own drummer. 

-Workout. Everyday. Do something high intensity. I think there is so much info out there about making sure you don’t get “injured” when you work out that no one talks about how you honestly need to push yourself to get results

-Don’t substitute “bland” for healthy. There are actually tons of really yummy healthy dishes out there that are not fried, and aren’t salads. My husband is Turkish and as enlightened me with tons of great dishes… try Extra lean ground beef, one eggplant, garlic, greek style yogurt (low fat), on top of brown rice. I seriously would not be able to eat “healthy” if every day I was eating a salad with tomatoes.

-Don’t listen to me…or anyone else. Its a bit of trial and error, but you need to figure out what works for you. Some people count calories, some people only eat whole foods. Only you will know what works and what you can do in the long run.

-Good luck! ๐Ÿ˜€

#1 congrats for deciding to start on a Friday – its really important to realize that your body doesn’t care if its Monday or Friday or Thanksgiving hehe

#2 I think your strategy sounds perfect.  Seriously, if you lose 50 pounds you are gonig to feel AMAZING, even if right now you’re thinking “I really need to lose 75”.  Just remember to stick with it and that it is a life change vs. just losing weight for hte big day!

Good luck!

im very mean to myself. i’m not good at dieting, but my normal diet is okay–i maintain weight fine, but i have a tough time losing it unless i hit the gym a lot.

so, i put a reminder in my phone for 520, 5 days a week that says “go to gym. youre getting married and will be really pissed if you don’t lose weight by then and have to look at those pictures for the rest of your life”.

it works for me =)
