I’ve been trying to get fit my whole life (I’m 21) and talk about a wedding was just the thing to kick my butt into gear.
I’ve started to eat much less and have a more balanced diet. No more junk food. Counting calories and watching what I eat.
I’ve also been running for months (I haven’t in about 2 weeks) and I think that has made a big difference in my body, health and physically.
I hope to lose a bit of weight since I am just not happy with how I look at the moment. I don’t know if I’ve lost any weight, but I can tell that I look a bit different, so that is good! What are you doing to get rid of the weight before the big day?
P.S. I’m not even engaged yet, but we are planning on having a short engagment.

We are having a very very long engagement (over 3 years) but I have joined MyFitnessPal, started watching what I eat a bit more and increase my exercise. Hopefully I will get down to and stay at a healthy weight by our wedding day 🙂 and by then I should have gotten into a healthy lifestyle, and be able to maintain it!

@almostthere92: i started running in the summer too!! It was def. more mental for me. I am doing my first 10k in November. I also do bootcamp 3x a week outside by my house but thats over next week! My dilemma is im so used to going tonthe gymnstraight from work And changing there. Coming home i never want to leave. The reason i have to come home now is to drop off my ring! Im scared to lock it up and im scared to wear it and scratch the setting! So lazy me has to come home and go from now on lol!!

That’s great! Sounds like you both are doing good too! I use Myfitnesspal as well! It really helps with the calorie counting! And good luck with your 10k @oangeo!

@almostthere92: I did the same as you, I started running. It stated two years before we got married as I started running the year before my friend’s wedding as I was a Bridesmaid or Best Man, a year before we got married. It worked though I struggle to get the motivation, but i’ve got the urge to go jogging this weekend, hopefully that urge will stay.
