holisticbabe : I have wanted/needed to lose weight for a few years but now I have a dress I really want to wear it is definately a motivating factor.
DaniGirl03 : Thank you so much, I will have a look at it now. 🙂
lifetimegoals : Your approach is very smart and maintainable which I am slowly getting to. Its hard because when you start dieting you kind of become fixated and then worry about if you eat certain things you will just put everything back on (irrational I know and might just be me thinking this). So I also need to change my mind frame.
webbee : That is what I have done so much in the past, picked and event I planned to transform for and either stayed the same weight or lost it all and put it back on right before the day. I just want to look my absolute best in these pictures

Okay I would definitely shy away from counting calories. Just focus on eating healthy, nutritious food to the point where you feel satisfied and full.

I realise you’ve had a ton of comments already, but I just wanted to chuck in what worked for me (I wasn’t too much over to begin with, but I wanted to change my fat/muscle ratio for my mermaid dress!). I switched all fizzy sugary drinks (cola, sprite etc) to fizzy water, and stuck to alcohol only at the weekend. That easy switch seriously made 4-5 pounds fall off reasonably quickly because my exercise routine didn’t change too much… I started at 130 and am now 124 (I’m 5’3″, petite frame). I hadn’t appreciated *just* how bad those sugary snacks are!

cosimaskye : I’m on your bandwagon. Wedding for Oct of this year, haven’t started dieting yet and can’t even think of dresses just yet. Need to find motivation. A few years back myfitnesspal worked great for me.
