I got married in October of 07 and was confident on my wedding day and honeymoon... I'm at my heaviest weight now, and I want it gone! I want to feel confident again! I need to get back into a routine as I feel that I have gotten lazy after I got back from my honeymoon. My goal is to be more confident and comfortable with my body, and to lose about 19 lbs. I want to try and reach this goal by this summer (2009) for bikini season as I have not worn a bikini nor felt comfortable enough with my body to wear one since my honeymoon. My best friend is getting married in September and I want to look my best, and to feel great and sexy... as I am so excited for her and we can't wait to get pictures!! :)
I have a hard time getting motivated to exerise alone, and thankfully have found a good friend/co-worker who goes to the gym with me at lunch or after work, as we have a gym onsite. I recently started working in HR Benefits for Volkswagen Group of America headquarters and I want to take full advantage of having a gym onsite.
Another goal of mine is to carefully schedule workout time amongst the many other things going on in my life... married life, finishing up school, work, regular house duties, while also trying to eat healthy.
My goal is to lose about 19lbs, to feel sexy and confident with my body, to eat healthy, and to implement a healthy lifestyle.
Crunches and Cardio everyday. Walking or cycling every other day. Counting calories (goal: less then 1300 cal per day). Eating low carb products when I can. To not eat when I am bored or stressed. To portion my meals correctly. And getting encouragement and motivation from SP, friends and family.
I'm 25. From Virginia. 5'. Amazing husband, who's 6'2" :). And wonderful family and friends. Very blessed and thankful.

Thanks! And I'm glad your weight loss is going well! That sucks about Celiac disease!! .. but it seems to be a more common disease than was first thought! Or at least gluten intolerance is! I've heard a lot about it lately! I've even thought of trying to go on a gluten-free diet for a while just to see how my body reacts to it! Is it hard to find things you can eat now? How did you find out you had it? As for my weight loss...its non-existent! Haha. I've been doing some traveling with work which has not helped my "eating right" or exercising efforts...not too mention I now live within 20 minutes of most of family so there have been more get-togethers which means more eating!
I just got back from Cincinnati (work trip) friday so I've really been trying to get back on track since then! My main problem is lack of motivation to work out! Does your work have a gym (you said you work out during your lunch break, so I was just wondering)?
Wow...now that I've complained all over your page.... =P
Hey! I graduated from Auburn University with a chemical engineering degree. So how are things going with trying to get back down to "wedding day weight"? I've decided I need to get on here more often and really keep up with things. I haven't made ANY progress lately!
Hey! I've been doing great! Just getting done with college finally, graduating in about 3 weeks! I havent really been on sparkpeople on a normal basis since the wedding either! Just kind of off and on! I have about 7 pounds I need to lose too! I want to reach my goal before getting a bikini too! haha. (I was hoping to have reached it by graduation, but I haven't been consistent so I havent lost much!)
Married life is going great. A year and a half already! It goes by fast, doesn't it?? How is married life on your end??
