Ok, we got engaged two julys ago....and I have had all this time to lose weight...and what have I done? I gained 10 pounds...if only it were as easy to lose it as to gain it. I have done sparkpeople before and had success, but I feel so discouraged...im in the mindset of.."why bother, I wont be able to get enough off in time anyway"...the wedding is November 3, 2012...I really want to be able to get the dress I want and like all of the pictures, but I do not know where to start. So, I probably have 8 months at the most to try to drop about 90 pounds...can anyone out there just give me some motivation? Please...things feel so hopeless.
