Wedding Weight Loss Program - Offically Started!
Monday, October 25, 2010
I've still been maintaining and just not all there for quite some time and I finally got to that "I'm sick of this" point again that I got to the first time I really committed and lost over 40lbs. I'm excited to have gotten that feeling again b/c I really feel good about this!
I have 30 weeks til my wedding. I'd like to average about 1lb a week as a loss. I know I may not lose that much every week but I'm hoping when it's all said and done I'll end up right around there!
I am committing to 4-5 days a week (depending on my work schedule) of going to the gym and using the elliptical for 60 minutes. I started up with this program near the end of last week and so far it's been working out great for me.
I'm also doing my WW program on my own again which also seems to be working well.
I happened to start this for myself the day before I found out that my fiance's office is being shut down December 1st. It's been difficult to handle and we're doing the best we can to figure everything out, but I'm very thankful for my commitment to being healthy again or there would have been stress eating like no other.
We also just recently started to foster a new pit bull mix dog a few days before we got the news, so that's another level of stress. We're trying to decide if we can actually keep him in our lives or not, but either way we will foster him until he can have a new home if we are unable to keep him on a permanent basis.
I need to lose this weight for myself. I want to feel great in my wedding dress and I'd like to be at an extremely healthy weight when we start trying for children, so this all ties in together for me. Here's hoping I can do it!
