So I'm T minus 6 months to my wedding. In the first 3 months of the year, I lost 20 lbs, and I'm pretty proud of it. I've gained a few lbs back in the last few weeks from serious overindulging, but just put some official weight loss goals on my calendar in what I think are do-able time frames (about 5 lbs every 4 weeks). I originally wanted to lose most of the weight before June/July, then use August as a maintenance month (wedding is 9/19). Unless I get SUPER motivated in the next 3 months, it seems unlikely to happen. As of today, I'm 28 lbs away from my goal weight.
So I wanted to know - did you steadily lose weight up to your wedding? Did you lose a bunch of weight at once and maintain? I'd love to hear your strategies. Mine are pretty simple and basic - restricting junky carbs, lots of veggies and fewer fruits, lean meats and grains and cutting out most alcohol. I eat next to no processed foods, and I love to cook... but the problem is I love to cook
I've always been a gym rat, but lately I've been signing up for more races - 10Ks, 5Ks, bike rides, etc., in an effort to keep myself motivated.
Anyway - how did it all workout for you guys?
