Congratulations on your weight loss and your engagement ๐Ÿ™‚

I am also struggling with losing weight, so yes, it is a big priority for our special day. Right now, I have hit a plateau though, so I am a bit discouraged.

Great job on your weight loss!  It sounds like you did it reasonably with food restrictions and cutting out the soda and weren’t too extreme which is great.

First of all CONGRATULATIONS!!! What an accomplishment especially doing it by yourself the good old-fashioned diet & exercise way. You should pat yourself many times on the back for that.  ๐Ÿ™‚

I am quite a bit older than you and had a similar cycle as you. I was skinny, gained weight after my first marriage. Got divorced, lost weight, met the current Fiance and gained it all back plus more. I am now in the process of losing it but motivation has been hard…Undecided. With the upcoming wedding, I am definitely more motivated and I have used my wedding date as a pseudo-deadline. It has become a priority mostly because of health issues that were beginning to surface like symptoms of Type 2 diabetes, as well as in preparation for the family my FI and I intend to start almost immediately after the wedding.

Although the wedding and fitting into THE dress is my biggest motivator right now, I am trying to frame it so that longevity and future is my ultimate motivator.

awesome job on the weightloss!

and yeah my goal was to get down to my goal weight of 130 (i am currently 153 at 5’4″) – i had gotten down to 142 then went on a cruise, and it ruined me LOL

but i changed my goal to inches instead of weight. i realized this was better since i was loosing inches but the scale stayed the same> once you get a certain size, you are gaining muscle and losing fat, but muscle weighs more than fat, so dont get hung up on a number on the scale. ๐Ÿ™‚

good for you with all the hard work and keep it up! you have a ton of time to lose teh weight healthy and keep it off ๐Ÿ™‚
