Try to set a date and an action plan - like I'm going to start x day, and I'm going to lose x pounds per month, and I'm going to do it by having a x calorie diet and burning x calories per week through exercise. It's totally do-able if you do the calculations of how many calories you need to get rid of per week/month (3500 calories = 1 pound).

I think it's tough to get and stay motivated, but it's really a great idea to try to incorporate healthier eating into your life and exercise too, not just to look good in your dress but to be healthier for the rest of your life. I know it's hard, I don't think it gets any easier. I think it really helps if your partner is on board, at least for me it does - like we go and play sports together and bug each other if we're feeling too lazy to go to the gym without any good excuse. Sometimes I like watching weight loss shows, like Last 10 lbs boot camp - or Biggest Loser, for motivation! Maybe you could enroll in a boot camp class or something with one of your friends, just to help you get into the work out mode - it's nice when you don't have to think/plan workouts - you just show up. Good luck, keep us updated on how it's going .

I wish you all the best. The hardest part is now. Once you start and get into it, you'll feel better, see results and you'll want to keep it up. And don't stress, you still have enough time.

Hopefully you'll find the motivation you're looking for, but if you don't, understand that this is pretty common. Best of luck to you!

My contest ended yesterday and I lost 22lbs. I also won! I didn't work out so much, but my biggest thing was eating better and drinking lots of water! I won $425!
THe moral is Nutrisystem, working out, and us motivating each other along with our contests worked for us. NS has a great online plan and counselors whicj I really used a lot my first month. I plan to stay on it until the wedding to make sure I look good in my dress.
Maybe you can try some of these methods to help.
I am happy with NS. Anyhoo...that is what has worked for us. Good luck!
