Hello and welcome to the Weight Loss Forum helian1604

There’s nothing better than a wedding to give us the motivation to look and feel our best. 😊

If you haven’t already then please see Pinned Posts here healthunlocked.com/nhsweigh...

especially the Welcome Newbies and the Security Post. (Especially as you have shared a photograph and left your post unlocked)

This is a very busy forum with lots going on but feel free to ask if you have any questions.

Best Wishes in your weight loss journey

Hi, helian1604, welcome.

Good luck.

I lost over four stone to get to a weight I had not been for 40 years - for my 70th birthday.

When is the wedding?

Don’t look at your total goal. Break it up into smaller, more tangible goals. For instance this week I’m going to drink 120 oz (liters?) of water a day. I will go out and walk everyday for 20 min. I will eat fruits (1-2, low glycemic index), veggies (6-8 cups/low starch) and lean meat, 8 oz total. You may have 2 cups of whole grain per day. Modify this to something that works for you and keep a journal with starting photos and measurements. This is where the fun is! One day at a time. Enjoy your journey!

Snap! I started loosing weight for my daughters wedding! Which is this year. Its a good motivation because if I ever feel like cheating I just think of the slightly tight dress I have already bought!
