Wow! Well, honestly I'm not sure how healthy it would be to lose 30lb by May, but you may find that you don't have to lose as much as you think to fit into your dress if you focus a lot on fitness. So... how to fit it in to your busy schedule? I too work at a desk all day, but am allowed a break. Unless its freakishly cold out, I walk around in the parking lot for 15 min in the afternoons. Is this a possibility for you? I don't know the ages of your kids, but could you involve them in a workout? For example, get them doing a video with you - kickboxing or zumba maybe? And definitely when the days get longer, some family walks and play outside. Also, make the most of weekends and the time you can find there. Maybe do some two-a-days on the weekends, and take more days off during the week? Just brainstorming here. Maybe you'll get some ideas. You do have to make time for you. emoticon

Welcome to Spark!!

My husband and I have been using the Military eating plan (it's not associated with the Military) and have lost a combined 45 pounds since January 8th. The info is located in my blogs on my page if you are interested.

I have the same struggle with time as you. We just have to make our health a priority.

Good luck to you!!

I am getting married in May and have 30lbs to lose if that is even possible. I need to start exercising for sure. I work long hours sitting and drive over an hour one way to get there. So 4 days a week I am hit. If I want to exercise in the morning before work I would have to go to bed by 9p to get up by 430a. I leave my house by 530a to get to work by 7a. I wouldnt see my family. If I exercise after work I wouldnt see my family then either because I get home at 7p and my kids go to bed by 9p. There is still dinner in there to make and errands. I need suggestions. I am ready to go to my dr to get an appetite suppressant of some sort. I will not get in a dress on my wedding day with the way I look/feel.
