47 replies
Found 1st Jan 2009
With my wedding just few months away i decided that new yr i was seriously going to concentrate on getting fit again and loose weight. Not just for the wedding but because I dont want to get old with bad health etc.
I will be updating this thread with my food and drink intake and my exercise for each day.
I hope you guys can keep help with suggestions etc.
I am very serious about doing this and would love to walk down the isle feeling good about myself.
I am doing this with my sister and my best woman ( yes i have a best woman whos giving me away!) so we can support one another.

me joining a gym now way! I will make full use of my wii fit until i am confident enough to go running outside again! To think i used to go running every other day, how easy it is to slip by the way side!

Hate the phrase diet......too many yo-yo diets around !!!
think life changes are a far better way to go unless of course ou don't mind pilling all the weight back on after the wedding?
less sugar, less saturated fat
more fruit ,veg, nuts and at least 2 litres of water per day(and no you can't substitute the water for coffee,tea,coke,or any other liquid based drink)
Its really import for the body to break down the intake of foods that we do have on a daily basis.
:-D

I know what you mean, I went to aerobics twice a week and considered myself very fit and toned but moved area and had 2 children and now need a kick up the backside!

The wii fit sounds good, not got one but went on my brothers over christmas and it said my fitness age was 51!! (I then threw it out of the window)

TY for this Great stuff.

I tried losing weight for my wedding, I really wanted to lose at least 4 stone but only managed to lose 2 - regardless, I felt and looked like a princess in the pictures. Don't get hung up on your weight and let it spoil your day!

Turn your fears into your strengths.

If you hate needing to lose weight, look in mirrors constantly to give you determination to keep going losing weight.

Soon enough you'll really like looking into that mirror to check out your shape

Fears>>strengths
