    *Casey* how did you do? If by chance you slipped, it's only one day, you'll get back on track tomorrow. I know I have my cheat days, it helps give me something to look forward to.

      If I've learned anything from this weight loss adventure it's been that a cheat day can actually make you "gain" weight initially but by drinking lots of water and getting back on track right away, you lose the "weight" in just a few days! Try to keep the "illegal" foods to a minimum and make sure to drink TONS of water and you'll be fine.

      keep reminding yourself why you REALLY want to do this...

        Hey, that's my motivation. I keep thinking about the dress I really want and how I don't have too much longer before my ordering deadline is here. But I definitely have cheat days; I just try to cheat earlier in the day so that it doesn't stay with me overnight.

          I went to the gym Friday morning even with my mom in town! YEA! but took yesterday and today off. But tomorrow I'm back at it for sure!

            And of course, I've been eating like crap! Is it bad that I kinda want her to go back home so I can focus on getting my ass in gear and not entertaining and going out to eat all the time?

              I completely understand! it's like when your friends are coming up for the weekend to visit and you're almost like...don't stay the whole weeked cause I need to eat healthy at some point!! I find it so hard to keep eating healthy when no one around me is watching what they eat. If I turn some high fat food down I get a look or a comment like..why don't you just eat it!

              I know you're mom's probably not pushing you to eat junk but company comes with food...it's a part of being a good hostess. Good for you for getting to the gym while she was there! Hang in there and remember to drink lots of water. You can jump back on the wagon tomorrow...first thing!!

              As for me...I think I'm losing my motivation. I've lost what is an acceptable amount and now that I'm ok with my weight I need something extra to push me...cause I would LOVE to lose more and get more toned. I like how my dress fits now but I want to look smokin' the whole week in Jamaica on the beach and by the pool...I think maybe I just re-motivated myself just by thinking about being in Jamaica. It's not easy but I'm gonna do my best. I don't want to have any regrets come April...I want to know that I did my best to get in great shape...(thanks for listening to my rambling rants to motivate myself!!)haha

                Hey Everyone I am joining in on this one!

                I NEED to lose a good 15lbs before the wedding! I work out pretty consistently but dont always eat that great. I HATE running but know as far as cardio goes it is the best for me so last week I started running BLAH!

                I just keep telling myself that I have BD pics, wedding dress, wedding pictures and a week of swimsuit wearing coming up, if that is not enough reason for motivation I don't know what is!

                  Hi everyone, my wedding is April 11, 2009. I am currently 133 and want to lose 10-15 pounds prior to the wedding in order to fit into my dress. I was doing well, and had lost 5 pounds, but I gained them back because I got sick and wanted to eat to feel better.

                  I am really happy to have found this thread! my current diet is the following:

                  1. eat 1 pc of toast and coffee in the morning
                  2. eat salad for lunch (.4 on the scale at the salad bar)
                  3. eat salad for dinner (and one truffle here and there)

                  The salad thing can get boring, but I have different kinds of dressings, I switch from romaine to spinach, i add fruit sometimes, and i switch the protein (sometimes shrimp, sometimes chicken, sometimes steak, salmon etc)....

                  The problem in during weekends when I am socializing more so now with holidays etc. I hope that I can eat less and work out more.
