I must say that I also desparately tried to lose weight before my wedding. That year I lost a dress to a wedding company that closed down only months before my big day. I never did lose weight before the wedding, but found a fabulous dress despite losing hundreds of dollars on the first. I was married on July 19th and by September of the that year I was at my ideal goal weight with out even trying. I got busy with the making of home and forgot about who everyone thought I should be. It might have helped that it was 90 every and that there was no air conditioning. That was 25 years ago this July. Now I look forward to doing the same thing. Making a life instead of trying to fit into one. Good Luck to you. Eat for health and make your life what satisfys you and only you.

It never an easy condition to live with but it can be managed and the battle can be won, just look at all the ladies here who have it who have lost the weight or at the winner of Biggest Loser who has it.
I wasn't at my goal weight when I got married two years ago but that's alright, life had given me some lemons that I had to make lemonade from and some delicious lemonade is what I made.
So you can do it, just keep your eye on your smaller goals and remember YOU CAN DO IT!
I've been feeling that lately all i'm doing is sabotaging myself. I know that with PCOS i am more likely to crave foods that are unhealthy for me and I give in. I eat, i don't watch my portions or any of the other nutrition info that i've learned over the past 3 years.
I know what I need to succeed, and I even did for a summer! Only now, I can't seem to find the motivation to better myself.
I'm getting married in 8 weeks and would have loved to have reached the 300pd marker. Only, i'm positive i've gained weight. Which creates a vicious cycle of if i've gained weight i won't be able to lose enough by the wedding, will my dress still even fit?... and i go back to eating the foods I know are unhealthy for me.
I'm finding that doing it on my own, is not an option anymore. I need help to succeed when I used to think that I would be able to do everything on my own.
