REALLY NEED TO LOSE 50lbs!

Recommended Posts

I really need to find a way to get motivated to lose weight. Had a great body before going back to school. Coldstone and redvelvet cake became my vice. I recently moved and would love to find classes like hi-lo and step, just need some energy & motivation to go.

Just venting I know it must come from inside!!crybaby2.gif

well you have PLENTY of time to lose weight before your wedding if that is your goal...so take that stress away...going to the gym is great and has many benefits, but if you really want to lose weight, the most important thing is your diet..70% of losing weight is diet, the other 30 is gym...so start with the diet...count your calories or do weight watchers..start with that and when you start dropping some pounds and feel good, then start working out :)

It does have to come from inside... but a little outside encouragement helps a lot! Weight Watchers has been really good for me and taught me how to eat better... I went from being able to eat junk all of the time and stay skinny, to hitting my late 20s and gaining 40 pounds in the blink of an eye. P90X helped me lose the weight and WW is helping me keep it off. Good luck and check out the support threads on exercise and diet for an extra boost of confidence :o)

RUN RUN and keep RUNNING - it is the easiest way to slim down and look leaner - I started running 2 years ago and haven't lost weight but everyone always tells me i look like I lost 10-20 pounds it really really leans you out - plus you can still eat

Definitely has to be a combination of diet and exercise. find a food plan that works, like Autumn said, Weight Watchers can be great for motivation and tips. And there are lots of online sites to count your calories.

Even if you start by walking for 10 minutes a day (I know it's really hot these days) it will make a big difference. and drink a ton of water! and if you can find a friend to do it with it might help too. I also invested in a personal trainer which helped a lot.

 

Don't give yourself any unrealistic goals to lose too much weight at one time or you might disappoint yourself - I started in September for my April wedding and thought I'd lose 25 lbs - I didn't. I lost 15, but, I looked great and felt great from working out so much.

you can do it! you have to want to do it, but you totally can!

take it slow. one day, one meal, one step at a time!

I lost ten pounds one month just walking 3 miles 4x's a week.

then I lost another ten spinning. and then I lost another ten in hot bikram yoga.

it took about a six months to get it off and keep it off.

 

BUT! then mcdonalds became MY vice, lol. and ICE CREAM!!!!!!!

Do you have an iphone or a BB? Some of the calorie counting websites have apps you can download on your phone and it's easy to stay on top of what you are eating. I used fatsecret.com and have the app that goes with it. I loved that I could record what I ate and then tracked any exercise and it would show how many calories +/- I consumed over what I burnt off. I liked seeing the minus numbers. It was pretty accurate because 3500 calories= 1 pound of fat right? If I lost 5 lbs, I would count up my negatives and it was pretty close to 17,500. That kept me motivated!

i am telling you RUN - or exercise - the whole diet thing I don't think will ever work - you diet but that what it means diet cause you gain it back - you need to make a lifestyle change - you can start off by counting calories but unless you want to gain the weight back you need to stay at a certain amount of calories or under!!! Lifestyle change

    • Another option is to find an app that allows for group talk. This Wedding Party App looks pretty neat. https://apracticalwedding.com/wedding-party-app/ 
    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
