Well, don’t eat fast food. Eat healthy food, or at least real food. You know, stick to the outer aisles of the super market, etc.
Go to the gym every day or so, or at least do something at home. If you’ve been doing nothing, that will make a difference!
Definitely don’t stress yourself out. Also, if you lose too much, your dress won’t fit, right?

I’m training for a 1/2 marathon the week before we get married! So I will legitimately be in the best shape of my life 5 days before the wedding!

Not getting married until 2014, but we’re going to visit his family and friends in California mid-May and I have been trying to drop some weight so I can actually wear a swimsuit! I figure I have about 70 days. I’d like to drop 15-ish lbs.
For completely unrelated reasons I started taking a prenatal (hair, skin and nails are a wreck right now) and fish oil with lots of dha + epa. I’m pretty sure the fish oil has been seriously controlling my appetite lately. I take it 3 times a day, right before each meal and am eating less and hungry a LOT less. It’s so much easier to lose weight when you aren’t starving all the time…

@masterteee2013: Dude get out of my head. That’s totally me. Every Monday I’ve been saying, “Okay NOW!” *Sigh* I have a little longer than you but way more than just a few pounds.

@masterteee2013: I would like to lose 6-7 pounds to look better in photos but its hard to get motivated because my dress is already too big (is in the process of being altered) so I don’t have that threat hanging over my head. I am hoping daylight savings time helps with the exercise, maybe I won’t be so tired all the time

I’m just starting this week… it helps that FH is doing it too. We’re checking out a local gym after work today and if we like it, I’m going to pick up some yoga pants and sneakers. (I literally do not own a pair of shoes worth working out in. I bought what I thought were sneakers awhile back, turns out they’re… not really, or something. Very cute, but not really something I could treadmill in.) Buying lots of proteiny food and plants too.
It’s sad for us that some of our friends left Korea, but on the other hand, it also means less invites to drink beer and eat high carb high sugar meals… might be easier to stay on track.
Snacks are where I usually fall down, as I’m a tad bit on the hypoglycemic side, so going from breakfast to lunch without eating is just not possible. Low carb snacking is tough! I’m going to look for cheese sticks and nuts – stuff I can keep nearby at my desk.

@HisMoon: Right?? lol I think by making my goal to start Jan 1st that was unrealistic because I hate working out lol. Im going to just start eating all veggies and slim fast lol I only have like 80 days left lol

sigh… I “started” working out and eating well in January. Haven’t really been taking it serious and have lost nothing. I did do 30 day shred and started ripped in 30. Doing those workouts will help you gain muscle and get stronger but you won’t see crazy results unless you change your diet. I have 114 days. We still have time!!! I say start getting serious now so you aren’t super stressed later! Good luck!

I’m in the same boat as you! I honestly just have too much going on that I don’t have time/energy to work out I started eating better/healthier and drinking alot of water but that’s about the extent of it. I guess I need to get my butt in gear though, my fitting is only 3 weeks away

ME! Ugh, but we’ve exhausted all the food in our house so when I go shopping this weekend, only healthy food will come back with me. 🙂

I just started Monday. I don’t want to drop too much weight, but still It’s def time to start. I kept procrastinating but Now with about 100 days to go it’s totally time to stop being lazy. So Monday I started working out and tanning to get ready for the big day. I think anything i do know is more than what I was doing, and i haven’t set an unrealistic goal. Just ready for June to get here LOL.
