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!
