    Goood Morning Ladies!!..

     

    Soo.. Since I am soo addicted to this site for all my wedding needs and all the great girls I've met.. I figured this would also be a great place for weightloss support.

     

    In the last year I've gained 20 pounds which I didn't realize (or think about) until I started trying on wedding dresses!!..

    My goal is to get toned up before our wedding in May 2013 and to keep myself in that shape.  :o)

     

    I had great results with Adipex from a weightloss doctor. I was on these once a day and a low carb diet, and dropped weight insanely fast and had tons of energy (but seeing as I was barely at 130 and these were pills for obese people, I decided to stop taking them and then I totally fell off the band wagon and started gaining again.)

     

    I'm thinking Low Carb diet since it seemed to work, amd I want to steer clear of diet pills. I have also started running/walking again.

     

    Anyone else doing a low carb diet and walking/running?.. I need all the motivation I can get!.

      I started a low carb diet in January of this year and lost 40 Ibs by my wedding in May.  I didn't start working out until the last month and a half or so though.  I wish had started sooner.  Good Luck!

        WOW... That is AMAZING!!!! Congrats!!.. What foods did you eat?  Did you do 3 meals a day with snacks?

         

        Right now I'm doing the following:

        Breakfast: Plain Special-K with a fresh banana and 2% milk every morning.

        Lunch: Salad or Turkey sandwich

        Dinner: Salad or Lean Gourmet meal. On weekends-baked/boiled Chicken or Steak.

         

        My plan was to avoid breads and pastas.. But it's too hard!!

          Hey!!!! Im pretty much on track with you! Wedding next may and looking to drop some pounds and tone up. I started at the gym last week, went three times, plan on doing more this week. I also changed my eating habits, i still eat carbs but less, i try to only eat carbs before 3 pm, nothing but veggies, fruit and protein after. I am also making sure i eat alot more protein, hard boiled eggs in the morning, tuna cottage cheese, almonds, yogurt, or chicken for lunch and snacks. Trying desperately to cut out sugar as much as possible aqnd drink nothing but water.

            Ahh.. That's awesome!!.. We def seem to be on the same path!!..

             

            I too am trying to drink as much water as possible.. I've become addicted to Coke Zero's on the weekends although they sound more healthy than regular cokes, I'm sure they are terrible.. But def H2O all day at work. :o)

             

            what type of exercising are you doing at the gym?

                Hi Ladies!

                 

                My wedding/ vow renewal is in 4 months and I need to lose some weight! The wedding is on October 19 and I started Atkins a couple of weeks ago. I completely ruined my diet last week (don't think there was even one day I stayed on track) so tomorrow I'm starting over, and I'm wanting to start waking up early to work out. My absolute dream goal would be to lose 50lbs which would put me back to where I was when I met my husband. My realistic goal is to lose 20lbs, if I could do that then I could fit in to the clothes I was wearing last summer.

                 

                I was a size 6-8 when I met husband, now I'm a size 14 which I'm not okay with. I would love to have some support and other people to help keep me accountable!
