Hi, I'm Valerie I'm 23 (24 in a few days) and I'm getting married on Sept 8th 2012. I weigh 228 and am wanting to get down to at least 170 or 160 by my wedding date, I know that's asking a lot but who wants to get married fat? lol I've been a yoyo dieter for as long as i can remember.. starting in 8th grade.. yes.. that young.. my weight is always drastically changing.. I lose a ton of weight keep it off for a couple years then gain it back... this time I want to lose it and keep it off... we will see how this time goes lol UPDATE: 5-6-2012 Well I'm 24 now lol, but any ways I've now dropped 20lbs!! Can't believe it but this is actually working. I have a long way to go but I'm gunna get there. Trying my best to get down at least 20 more by my wedding.. got 4 more months and I'm working hard at it. Thanks for stopping by! UPDATE: 6.11.12 So I have now lost 32.6 lbs =) My wedding dress fits again and I got told I looked "skinny" by a co worker.. def paying off doing all this hard work. I was one person that did not think this was possible.. but it is.. working out and eating right is the way to go.. u don't need diet pills, surgery, expensive pre packaged foods.. just treat ur body right and it will return the favor! UPDATE: 7.9.12 I'm officially down 41lbs today and so ecstatic! Only 9 more lbs to reach my goal of 50 by my wedding and I still have 2 months to go.. so I'm shooting for at least 15 more.. I got this =) Woot UPDATE: 8.13.12 I met my goal of 50lbs by my wedding today and am SOOO happy! Never thought I'd actually be able to do this but I did it!! I have just under 4 weeks til my wedding at this point and as badly as I want to lose more weight I need to maintain so that I don't have to get my dress altered.. again! lol So yea go me!! UPDATE 4/24/13: SOOOOO.. long time no see. Well I'm am very disappointed to say that I have gained back almost 25lbs since my last update =( no bueno so I'm going to try once again (for like the 100th time this year) to get back on track. I weighed in this morning at 198lbs and that was a big slap in the face =( So heres to hoping that, that was a big enough wake up call to do something before I hit 200 again!! Update 7-2-17: Its been 4 years since I last posted and since then I've had a baby and gained back all the weight I lost plus 40lbs. So here I am trying again. Weighing in at 268.2 and I have a long hard road ahead of me. Now having an almost 3 year old and trying to figure out how to juggle adding in a work out. I know people do it so I just have to figure out what works for me! Let's up the next update is better than this one! Jan 1 2018 Happy new year! So I have kept up with my diet and exercise and am down almost 50lbs as of yesterdays weigh in. 48.4lbs and 51in. I am so glad I did it and was able to find some motivation. I still have a long way to go to but I'm happy with my progress. I weighed in at 219.4 yesterday. I plan to continue working out and pushing myself a little harder this year to hit my goal of 100lbs. Here's to making 2018 a great year!

    Are you interested in a Challenge?

    The Biggest Loser goes for 10 weeks. It consists of 10 teams participating in weekly Fitness and Nutrition challenges. The Spring challenge will be getting started the beginning of March. It consists of fitness and nutrition challenges that are often in a form of a game. If for some reason you cannot do a challenge then they are modified to meet your needs. Often we do the challenge in a game form, we have BINGO and TIC TAC TOE or seasonally themed. For Winter we had Help Santa Fill His Sleigh, Run Rudolf Run and Super Bowl. If you decide this might be for you you can leave your name on the waitlist for the Spring challenge. To get to the Challenge go to my page and click on the Blue Biggest Loser Icon, copy and paste the link below, or let me know and I can send you an invite. Join the Team then sign up on the waitlist. It’s the thread right below the Frosted Fitness Fun Chit Thread.
