I am pretty close here too... I'm about 5'1" and 193 pounds. Only difference is that my goal is 175 by April 1st, but eventually I believe my goal will be 150. Hope that we can support each other along this journey.

Me too!! Okay so I may have 2 inches on you and about 15 lbs but pretty close to the same for the rest. I am willing to help you keep accountable if you coudl do the same for me. I am extremely busy but having someone I know I need to help will help me too!! What is the date? We are aiming for the 22nd right now.

I'm also getting married in October and trying to turn my life around. I'm driving my maid of honor CRAZY because I won't schedule a dress fitting. I know I'm beautiful just as I am, but after working at home for three years and gaining 40 points from my sedentary lifestyle, I don't feel beautiful. Going to the doctor last month with fatigue and being awarded a morbidly obese diagnosis for being 220 lbs and 5'5'' inches was the final kick in the butt I needed to do something.

My fiance is a McDonalds, night in kind of guy, and much of my healthy lifestyle like weekend hiking and vegetarian cuisine went out the window when I met him. I'm trying desperately to recreate my old, healthy way of life before we are permanently joined, and before I gain any more weight.

Add me as a friend. I'd LOVE to be your accountability buddy!

One thing to keep in mind too is that while you're not getting married until September you do need to be buying a dress about 6 months prior with alterations being done roughly a month beforehand. So I'd subtract that month at the end since if you need alterations done on the dress they'll cost a fortune in addition to the fortune you already paid for the original alterations. I'd say you have until your final fitting to lose the weight.

How are you doing so far with your goal? You can definitely get down to 150 for the wedding with hardwork and being careful about what you eat. I am finding that for myself the Sparkdiet plan works great and that adding the cardio in is helping quite a bit.

You will be beautiful at any size. Keep this in mind, your fiance loves you just the way you are.

I am getting married in September and I don't want to look back at my wedding pictures and regret the way I look in my pictures. I am only 5' and weight almost 200 lbs. I know my goal is kinda ridiculous because I wanna be 120 by my wedding but I really would be okay at 150. I just want to see results and I haven't been able to with anything else so far. I need someone to help me with my will power and be a kind of accountability partner for what I eat and when I exercise.
