    I'm sure you can do it!!! Just think how great you'll feel once you've reached your goal! Maybe try to break it up into little goals between now and you're date so it doesn't seem so daunting??  I found it easier to focus on losing 5 pounds at a time vs. 20 or 30...

    I can't believe I got the "you have 143 days left" from my TA the other day!!!  YIKES!

    I want to lose 30...its going to be hard.....but as soon as my friend is on her way back to Germany I can get back on track (t-minus 4 more days)....

        Hi kabee55,

         

        I guess it depends on when your wedding is. I don't recommend going on an all protein diet until about 2 weeks before your wedding, to shed the last few pounds. Eating all protein, you lack the necessary nutrients your body requires that you get from fruits and veggies. It will also slow your metabolism. And even worse, once you start eating carbs and sugars again, you will most likely gain twice as much weight as you lost. I don't pretend to know what's good for everyone else, but I know from experience going on the Atkins diet a few years back. I lost 15 lbs in about 2 weeks, but then gained back about 25 lbs 3 months later. For me, the best diet is eating small, nutritious meals 5 times a day and complementing it with a balance of weight training and cardio about 4-5 times per week. Doing this, so far I have lost 9 lbs in 4 weeks!

         

        Good luck with whatever diet you decide to go on!

          Another idea for workouts that are quick but still effective are any of the "On Demand" (Through Verizon Fios) or any other cable provider that has "Watch it Now" options. The nice part is that they refresh the workouts so you don't get (overly) bored doing the same ones day in and day out. Good luck to everyone!

                      Hello everyone ... We are getting married at Sandals Antigua on July 23 and leaving on the plane July 20th.  I really, really want to lose 15 pounds by the 20th.  I purposely got my dress a little snug to encourage me along so now I really need to do it.  Let's just say it zips but god help me if I bend over LOL.  I already work out quite a bit but I need to step up those workouts and really cut the calories.  It is very hard to do when we are stressing over everything and running around doing all the planning and no time to cook so we eat out. :( 

                       

                      No more eating out!!
