Current weight is 140. I have gained 20 in the last 2 years. I’d like to loose 10-20lbs or at least tone up and look like I did. I hope this group will help give me motivation to do more vs. just thinking about it.

As of this morning my current weight is 185.2. I’ve been overweight for as long as I can remember and once meeting my Fiance the scale jumped up faster. My wedding is in 99 days so it’s crunch time for me. I’m 5’7 and started off at 192. My goal is 2lb a week for the next 4 weeks. I work in an office all day but I do work out approx. 6 days a week. 4 at the gym and 2 days I do a boot camp. As well as walking for a hour on my lunch break. Good luck ladies!!!

Well, I walk 15 minutes one way to class during the semester, but as of right now I’m doing nothing. Not that walking helped, I still gained 10lbs since I started and it is definitely not muscle. I’m broke so it needs to be something cheap… are there any beginners videos I could get from the library or something?

I’m 5’7 and currently at 213. Hoping to lose 10 ponds this month (I know that is a lot, but I’m just starting out and typically lose a lot the first week of a new program, so I’m optimistic). My goal is to be at 160 by mid June for dress shopping (I plan to buy off the rack) and at 145/150 by the wedding at the end of August.
This is the second wedding for both Fiance and me. We have 3 boys between the two of us and have been living together as a blended family for 2 years. Planning an intimate (immediate family and best friends) wedding in the Florida panhandle with an at home reception in September.
Excited to be joining with you guys to motivate one mother!

Thanks! I do alot of strength training and cardio : ) But it just seems like these last few pounds don’t wanna break up with me! LOL I just started HIIT Cardion Boot Camp a week ago, so I’ll see how this goes! Good Luck!

5’8″, Size 18/20, large frame, 36 years old, mom of 3 kids. Biggest I’ve been is 250 (right before giving birth 3 yrs. ago), and I can’t believe most of it has still stuck around. Well actually I know why, because I am soooo painfully inactive. Plus all the Cokes. So my goal is to get off of that couch, put that book & soda & munchies down, and start moving, walking, baby steps. Smallest I’ve been as an adult was about 10 years ago, 180 lbs. I was in a size 12 jeans and looked FANTASTIC!!!!! But I’d love to be around 165. Let us pray. Amen.
Good luck everyone!!!

I’ve realize that my wedding is in just over 100 days, so it’s time to get down to business! (late is better than never, I suppose!) I weigh 147 and 5’3″. My end goal weight is around 120, but would be thrilled with 130-135 by the wedding. Mainly I lack motivation, so I’m hoping that joining this will help me keep up with working out. I just started doing the supreme 90 (can’t pass it up when it was only $10!). It seems to be similar to the p90x type workout, but a bit shorter. Other than that I’ve started running a bit and trying to eat better by tracking my food with the sparkpeople app.

Ok I am in again! I think I’m like 1 lb down from last months starting weigt lol. I am at 198 and hope to be 175 by the wedding 🙂 I also want to be at 190 when I go on SYTTD in a week and a half! I have been doing crossfit for about 2 weeks now and I am so much stronger and toned already. I think that is why I haven’t been losing as fast as usual. I definitely feel more muscular and toned though so thats what counts 🙂

I’m 5’9, today’s weight 165 lbs, lost 17 lbs since September. Goal is 145lbs, but I’ll take 150 by summer. I didn’t gain any weight during the holidays which is good, but I also didn’t lose any 🙁 I’m working out 4-5x/week with Jillian DVDs and extra cardio. I’m looking to kick it up a bit and this challenge is perfect to stir up motivation. Good luck everyone!

Oh can I play?! I’m 5’7, todays weight is 145 have lost 35 pounds since last May, but having a hard time moving any further down! Maybe this will motivate me. Goal weight for wedding is 130. 🙂

Ohh I want to join. This will be such good motivation for me.
My starting weight is 143 and I’m about 5’7. I’d like to get to about 130 by the wedding in May. About two years ago I really started getting into eating well and exercising and at that point I weighed about 185. While I still eat pretty healthy I’ve fallen off the wagon with the exercising.

Can I join in? 🙂
My current weight is 274….highest weight was 301 but Ive been working on my meal plans, watching portions and using myfitnesspal. My goal for the next few weeks is to drop at least 2lbs a week..since I weigh a lot it comes off fast for now. I’m a size 18 in most clothes…I dont think I *look* like I weigh this much so I always tell my friends its my butt haha Now that I’m engaged I have a lot of motivation to lose more weight…I dont want to start dress shopping until I lose some weight but with a 2013 wedding,I’ve got some time 🙂

I would love to join in!!! I’ve fallen in love with these boards since finding them a couple weeks ago, so this would be great and motivating for me.
My current weight is 213, I’d like to get down to the 160’s and then see what I look like at that point. For the 4 weeks I would like to lose 8 pounds.
When I first met my boyfriend I had just lost 30 pounds and I was at 170 and I felt like I looked great. I’ve been trying to lose weight for a while but I lack motivation. It’s very funny because my boyfriend is a fitness nut.
So I plan to take this seriously and get this weight off, simply because I’m tired of not feeling good about myself.
Thanks and I’m so glad I found this!!

Oops Forgot to look for this. Ok so Friday I was at 171.0 and This morning (Sunday) I’m at 171.8 Yesterday was my cheat night)
I really dropped the ball over the holidays and am looking to get back on track. I moved my first dress fitting and alterations to 2/4/12 so I am hoping to lose 10 more pounds by then but realisticly just as much as I can.
Good luck Bee’s WE CAN DO IT!!!!

Oh yay! I’m definitely in! I’m currently at 195.8, about 5’7″ so I still have a bit to lose. I’ve always been pretty active, but only recently have Fiance and I been pretty good about watching what we eat. My overall goal would be to lose about 30ish by May, which is about 1-2 lbs. per week. FI and I are going to start training for a half marathon soon, so hopefully that’ll help as well!
