    Hello All, I am a bride losing weight. I've lost so far 12lbs in 13 weeks, using an app called MyFitnessPal on my iPod. They have a website as well if you do not have an apple tool. Basically it will give you an idea of how many calories you should consume per day for your goal and allow you to record your daily intake. You can search for items, including restaurants, input recipes, as well as input activity as well. I try to do at least 30 minutes of cardio everyday, and in the begining had also added a 20 minute circuit workout - like jillian michael's 30 day shred - when I get home, and have had amazing success. I think by doing the FOOD and the exercise, you can all reach your goals! I tried just concentrating on eating well, as well as just on exercising, but you really need a combination of both. As well, you need to know how many calories your food is as well.

     

    DEFINITELY check out MyFitnessPal.com (its a free website and app). It WILL work!

      Thanks for the advice- I cut out dairy a few months back but I think upping the protein might do the trick- I haven't been getting much protein lately. I'll keep you up dated.  :)

Of course, if you're already within a healthy weight range for your age and height, it's going to be harder. You may already be doing this but if not and since it's temporary and you only have a few lbs to lose, try going low carb and high (LEAN) protein. Keep all your carbs to oats, All Bran, and veggies/fruit (sweet potatoes are ok, too). Be very careful with your dairy intake, make sure it's skim/fat-free. A lot of people are horrified when I tell them to try eating this way but 1) it works and 2) this is actually a very all-natural way to eat and forces you to eliminate all of the processed crap that we all eat constantly without even realizing it. Goodluck!

        I am in exactly the same boat as you -- I have until June 18th to lose 7 lbs...  Which doesn't seem like a lot but it is SO hard to lose when you are already in a healthy weight range.  My dream is to feel good about being in a bikini!!!  No cover-ups!  79 days left!!!

          Any support or advice would be great, i've been on a weight loss " diet" or " way of life" or " eating healthy" .. for just over 2 months. I've lost 22 pounds and my goal is 50.. I have until December however I thought I'd better start early in case I reach and plateaus or downsides. I find that when I workout .. I don't lose as much or don't lose any pounds ... my body gets muscular fast... I'm eating a lot of small meals often... seems to help... !

              Wow...I'm so glad I found this thread! This is exactly the kind of motivation I've been looking for!  I'm getting married in January 2012 and would ideally like to lose 20-30lbs prior to the big day! As someone who often works 80+hr weeks, its super tough getting to the gym, but I'm going to try to do at the very least some cardio 4-5 days per week.  I also recently started eating a low carbohydrate and higher lean protein diet.  The first two days were tough, but now I'm feeling great! And after just a week and a half, my clothes are fitting a little bit better!  Here's hoping I can keep it up....for the next 9 months! :)
