Getting in Shape

My weight loss motivation

So my FI and I have this bet going. Originally everyone was going to wear suits. So he made me a deal as motivation to loose weight. I want to loose 30lbs before our wedding. So if I loose 30lbs then he win wear a tux: its good motivation because I wanna see him in a tux: anyone think I can do this???

    When is the wedding?

    I previously lost 50 lbs (194 to 144 and then actually was down to 140 at one point). A bit ago I was up to around 155 after having to take 6 weeks off work, have surgery and was obviously laid up for a bit recovering. As of this morning I was 152 and Im working my way back down.

    IT CAN BE DONE! You just have to have the motivation, will and time as well as make the right choices!!!

    It definitely depends on when the wedding is, and how much you have to do to get down 30 lbs (and also whether a tux is appropriate for your wedding).  It's not always possible to do in a healthy manner.  Also, I might consider tuning up your bet with him to focus less on weight and more on fitness (eg, a mile in a certain amount of time) or size (eg, lose XYZ inches).  FWIW I actually gain about 10 lbs when I'm properly in shape just due to an increase in muscle mass.

    You can do absolutely anything you want to do. 

    We need more information.
    "When is the wedding" is the number one question because that will help "formulate a plan."

    I love that you and your fi are "making a bet"  on it. Nothing will keep me accountable to my workout plan as much as knowing that my H stuck to his. The fact that you are BOTH in this is huge. 

    Whitney- way to go! DO. NOT. STOP. Seriously. that is a HUGE weight loss and an even bigger accomplishment. Being healthy is the ultimate goal, and it is an every- day committment; a lifestyle. You inspire me. When you face your next struggle, wherever it may be, please remember that you have given me a push, no matter how big or small, towards my goal. And that's the point, isn't it?

    It can definiltey be done, I had 25lbs of fat on my body to lose and did it in 4 months. Things really turned around for me when I got proper workout and health support and started eating more whole foods.
    Remember fat-loss eating is different than a weight loss diet or even a healthy diet. Cut out starch and processed foods and make sure you get a good amount of lean protien and fiber! Plus, don't forget to treat yourself, I always keep Dove dark chocolate squares around so I can have one or two pieces of REAL choclate when I need it!.

    The wedding is September 1st. and I have already lost 5 in a week. I only have been cutting out soda and junk food. Pretty soon I will be riding my bike to school everyday five days a week (college down street), so i know that will help me loose. I really dont care if he actually wears the tux buts its motivation for me. I want to look really good in my dress and on our honeymoon. I am going to do this!!!
