never planned a bat mitzvah but went to my step-sister's bat mitzvah! Just now saw this! Hope it goes well. And sleep always helps me stay a bit more sane, as well as some exercise!

Matthew 6:33-34
But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. 34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.

Welcome Staceyes, from the token male on all of Sparkpeople. Congrats about the coming Bat Mitz - just been through that times two. Still paying, alas...

I was new right after Chanukah 2011. Some things that helped me get off to a fast start might help you too:

1. Drink the water. Every day. 64 oz at minimum.

2. Use the nutrition tracker as though it is the Soup Nazi. (Or Louis Gossett Jr.'s character in An Officer and a Gentleman). Aim for the minimum of the calorie range. Eat or drink NOTHING that is not counted.

3. Track sodium. Salt makes you retain water.

4. Get your personal trigger foods out of the house entirely.

5. Find an exercise you enjoy, and do it as often as you can, as vigorously as you dare.

One final thought: Hilary said "Itr Takes a Village" and also true here on Spark. While privacy and discretion are admirable traits, you may get more out of the social side of the experience of being here if you dial back on your privacy settings some. Again, welcome and congrats!

Hello and welcome to the team. I agree with everything already said. With a bit of luck and effort you should be able to lose the weight in time. Happiness on the day will make you look special. Your pride in your daughter will make your face glow. That is what people will notice.

Remember that if you want to lose weight and keep it off that dieting won't work -- you have to really change your lifestyle. This isn't so terrible. Just change small things in what you eat and how you exercise, with the aim of creating for yourself the lifestyle you want for the rest of your life. And it will be a fantastic model for your daughter. Great that you are planning now, so you can do a little bit at a time and not be overwhelmed by the details. Have fun! And welcome to the site!

If not now, when?

Hi and welcome to the team! And you can do this - eat a little less, eat a little better, exercise more, get adequate sleep. All the things we should do every day!

Whatever you do, dont obsess over details. the most important thing is whatever your daughter does at shul (every one has different amount the kids do). Second is food and music, so dont obsess over the ribbons on a bathroom basket or the table decorations (keep it simple and so that people can see across the table), and people will deal with whomever you seat them with - just dont go so crazy you eat yourself crazy or have that huge letdown the day after.

I'm doing a wedding now - and reminiding myself of the same things, but my daughhter the bride is soooo organized and so not obsessive, she's making it easy! Good luck!! Sherri

Hi, I joined SP on Thursday and am really liking all this site has to offer. I am a 43 y.o. Mom of 1. I would be happy with a 30 lb loss.

My big incentive is that my daughter is having her Bat Mitzvah in June and I want to feel comfortable in the pictures.

I hope I can keep motivated and sane through all of the planning and continue the motivation after the occasion as well.
