I need to lose some "lbs"!!!

Recommended Posts

Last night I decided to step on the scale......What a mistake!! When I saw how much I weighed, I thought I was going to die! My current weight is the heaviest I have ever been......smile43.gif

 

After having nightmares and hosting my own pitty party....I have decided that I need to kick my own ass and get motivated! Not only am I getting married next year, I am the Maid of Honor in my Best Friend's Wedding this November....And I do not want to be fat in those photos!

 

I need to lose my new "muffin top."

 

So....I am going to try weight watchers. I have friends that have lost a bunch of weight using this diet and it is time for me to jump on the band wagon! I am too "poor" to join weight watchers online so I did some research to get the jist of the diet. Any information you ladies would like to share would be appreciated!

 

Today is "Day 1" smile41.gif

As my girlfriends and I say "unconditional love has caused us to gain weight". My FI loves me no matter my weight which is wonderful but I just keep eating. You can find some weight watchers stuff on ebay for a decent price. I have also joined on line which is less time consuming and I think cheaper then going to meetings. Good luck and good for you for taking the first step!

I love weight watchers. After the wedding and everything I totally stopped watching what I ate and here I am 6 weeks later feeling disgusting - I started WW on Tuesday. I would highly recommend getting a WW points slider scale. It's just a little piece of paper thing that calculates the points for you. They do make a calculator too but I love that slider. You can find them on EBay for cheap! That is basically all I use. And WW gives you 35 extra points/week but I NEVER use those either. Also you get points for excercising but I don't use those either. I stick to my 20 points a day. I mean I TRY to stick to it LOL! If you google WW recipes you will find lots of info. GOOD LUCK!!

First of all don't be too hard on yourself. You see here's how it happens: We meet these fabulous guys and tend to get "comfortable" with them and before we know it we've packed on a few extra pounds without even realizing it (or wanting to realize it) hehe. I just hopped on the "MOTIVATION TRAIN" about 2 weeks ago. The getting motivated part seems to be the hardest for a lot of women (including myself) Here's my best advice: Don't go crazy and throw out all sweets/fats from your diet, decide you're hitting the gym 5 days a week, and cutting your portions in half. If you do this all at once you are basically setting yourself up to be less successful. Start small, and make little life style changes 1 at a time. The more small changes you make, the more likely you are to want to make the bigger changes. Also, what cardio activities do you enjoy? Do you like to hit the gym? Do you like to swim, play tennis, even brisk walking for 60 mins is GREAT for the heart. I refuse to give up carbs and chocolate. So, I work around them. The changes I started out with were: 1. Work out for 30 mins twice a week 2. Don't eat after 7:00pm Start small girl and you WILL BE SUCCESSFUL!!!! I'm alwayyyys here to chit chat about our progress!!!

I think I still have an excel WW calculator saved on my home computer, if you PM me your email address I will send it to you tonight. You just put in the number of calories and the amount of fiber and it tells you how many points it equals.

 

Also, I lost 15lbs before my wedding by lifting weights 3 days a week.

All of you ladies are too sweet! I have already told my co-workers to slap me upside my head if they see me cheating!

 

Hopefully by November I won't be too black and blue! (Kidding...I am going to stick with it! :) )

good luck. A wedding is great motivation to get to the gym. I've lost 15 lbs since February & quite shocked that I've been able to do it.

 

Let me know if you need motivation, I'll be your "virtual" workout buddy!

    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
