I joined this web site so that I could lose weight for my May 2008 wedding. I have been trying for about a year now to lose weight. So far I have only lost 21 pounds. Sometimes I feel like I will never reach my goal and need some inspiration.

Eating at home is a huge challenge because my fiance's mother gets upset at me for not eating her meals (she drowns everything in butter, even broccoli..which I like to eat plain). So even things that are supposed to be healthy end up being loaded in calories.

My current goal is to lose another 20 pounds, until I reach my goal of 125 pounds. I can't wait to be thin again!

My Goals:
I was married on May 4, 2008. What really got me into wanting to lose weight is an incident I had at Davids Bridal. I asked for a certain dress that I liked and the sales-rep gave me attitude like "oh, this dress doesn't come in your size." I was only a 16 and the dresses go up to like a 24 (I've seen people bigger then me wearing the same dress). So it bothered me.. A Lot! I mean, she could have handled it differently. Also, my mom and sis have diabetes, so I don't want to get it when I'm older.

My Program:
I'm trying to eat more healthy things like veggies (really hard to!) and high fiber items like wheat bread. I have been really cutting back on my fat intake, as I am starting the Alli program. I try to go on a walk with my husband everynight. When eating out I eat a salad, soup, or sushi rolls. I don't really eat fried food or fast food anymore.

Personal Information:
My name is Tanya and I live near Magic Mountain in California. Im 24 years old and 5'5"

Other Information:
Wish me luck everyone, I'm going to need it!

    Hi! I saw you posted in the Brides/Grooms to be forum, I can't believe that the sales woman said that to you. You really have to wonder about some people, anyways, good luck with your weight loss journey!
