    Aw, I sadly know the feeling as I didn't hit my goal either. Still, be proud of how far you did make it! Can you set a different personal healthy goal to make before you're wedding that might be just as exciting to complete? For instance, running a certain distance? It might help with your weight loss and keep you motivated, despite missing the scale goal, as the big day approaches.

    You still got healthier and made progress and that is what is important. And like you said, the last five pounds, in the grand scheme of things, won't make or break your look. You're still going to be a beautiful bride on your wedding day and as long as you feel good, you'll look good.

    I told myself I'd reach a certain weight goal by my triathlon a few weeks ago and was disappointed I didn't make it. But I was still fit enough to run a freaking triathlon, so honestly, the last few pounds made no difference. 

    Congrats on the weight loss you did accomplish, by the way! It's still worth being proud of yourself =)

    This is a great idea! I kind of started doing this during a plateau with my weight so I wasn't so discouraged. I set some goals for myself to try and improve my running. And don't be so down. You've come along way! Be proud!
