I think that the "push" (giving up french fries or whatever) is a GREAT plan! Good luck!

This is simple and maybe even silly but it's worth a try. Give up some food that you love but doesn't love you back. For instance, I haven't had french fries since June when I started a 3 month push and it's kept me away from burgers too. It hasn't stopped me from eating potato chips, I don't know if anything will, but it seems by not eating that one bad food others don't enter my diet either. And, I don't think on Sept. 10, the day after my wedding, I'll head out for french fries. Good luck during the next month!

If it helps at all, I eat dinner between 8-10pm every night and usually go to bed between 10:30 and 11:30pm. It isn't ideal but I still lose weight. Last I checked my stomach doesn't wear a watch. Whatever time you are eating, track what it is and meet your healthy guidelines.

I did WW from 2003 the beginning of this year. I couldn't figure out the new points program but I had a lot of success with the old program. Good luck with your big push this month!!

My post was poorly phrased. I am doing weight watchers but for some reason my fellow has a knack for throwing me off program. :) We also tend to eat dinner rather late, which makes losing much tougher. All I mean is it will be easier to eat lighter and earlier while he is away. ;)

my first thought is that you still need to eat regular meals...stick to your plan and you will surely have success. emoticon

Hello! I am getting married in October. Dress fitting at the end of August. I would love to be down 15 more lbs. and have more upper body tone.

I find myself unemployed but I still have three months of membership at my gym that I apparently can't cancel to save $$. So I have decided to leap into a one-month push of weight loss and fitness, assuming that I will probably be out of work for a month, despite the interviews I have had in the last two weeks.

I have the time. Now I simply need to push myself. The only issue is that the gym is a 30 minute drive from home (each way) so I need to be careful about having effective use of the classes and equipment. Another bonus? (sort of) My fiancee will be out of the state for two and a half weeks. So - I have more free time than usual, even above and beyond being unemployed.

So... Here are the things I am currently planning:

1) Use the two personal training sessions asap. (pre-paid with my membership) Learn specific moves for weight-loss and upper body toning.
2) Two hour-long water aerobics classes in a row are taught on Tuesdays and Thursdays. This is my favorite form of exercise and the thing most likely to keep me motivated. I will start going to these religiously.
3) Plan to go in on Wednesday and one day over the weekend to mix up the activity a little. Walk on the treadmill and use the skills the trainer teaches me during these times.

Any other thoughts? I have the resources, less need to eat regular meals with my fiancee out of town, and plenty of time. I am open to suggestions!
