    DEFINITELY not!!! I want to lose weight SO bad, but health problems are keeping me back, and I'm getting SUPER impatient!

      Lisa - you are SOOO not the only one. i have been engaged for a year, and i thought that would be the big motivator to lose weight. i am down a whopping 20lbs in that year. i am dissapointed in myself and i get can't get up the motivation to stick to a diet.

      i need to get my head in the game, but am not sure how to do it.

        20 lbs is still a great accomplishment Pam! I know it may not be your goal, but be proud of what you've done :)

          you're not alone, lisa! i gained 30 lbs in the year since my wedding, and just keep saying i need to do something about it ... yet no motivation whatsoever. not even the fact that i am about to go hot-tubbing with a bunch of skinny biatches from the SB at mander's house. ugh ... bathing suit ... kill me now.

            thanks, Heather :)

            i am, glad i am 20lbs on my way....but i still have so far to go.

            i have set a more attainable goal of just being below 200lbs before the wedding, but that is still 45lbs in 7 months....so i have got to get busy!!

            175 would be ideal for me, but i don't know if that's gonna happen.

              Hey! I need to lose 38 pounds to be under 200 pounds by my wedding too, which is in 6 and a half months! Congrats on the 20lbs down, I've lost 40lbs in the last 4 months by using caloriecount.about.com (it's free) It's really helped.

              Anyway, as someone who is finally losing weight after struggling with it my entire life, my advice is to not try to drastically change your lifestyle. Eat exactly the same, but just eat less. I still eat ice cream and cookies and even fast food sometimes, but now instead of devouring an entire value meal I eat half a cheeseburger and a few fries. I realized that I am probably never going to be a "healthy" eater, so I just had to learn to cut back. Hope this helps.

                that's a good point abbypoo - eat what you like, but just eat less. I like that! lol

                    that's exactly what i've been doing. I haven't been losing drastically but I have been losing and not really gaining. It's very hard to not eat until i'm FULL! lol and I believe that is/was the reason I gained so much.
