It will be tough, but you can do it!

I would suggest, to save yourself stress later, find a good alterations person now! You won't want to wait til the last minute to get a dress, so (hopefully) the size you are when you go dress shopping won't be the size you are for the big day - so a good alterations person you can go to a few weeks before will make your life MUCH easier!

It's more than possible! I have 30-40 to lose before my wedding and only 5 months. For me, the goal is 2lbs a week. I think what's important is to curb stress eating and focus of portioning/not overindulging. Treating yourself is okay! Just use moderation.

Have you set your goals with SparkPeople yet? This site is great for keeping you realistic and healthy about your weight loss goals. I was feeling pretty hopeless before I came here, but everyone has been super supportive! Start your weight loss blog and use it to vent, brag, etc. It helps to put things in perspective.

Set your goals, post them on your mirror so you can see them everyday, and go for it!

And remember, a bride ALWAYS looks beautiful on her wedding day. Even if we don't make our goal 100%, it's our day and we are going to shine! The confidence and power we give ourselves by working toward our goals is going to show.

Forty pounds is possible. They say two pounds a week is the most you should lose, for health reasons I'm sure. You will have to push yourself that's for sure, but with 10 months it is more than possible. I'm getting married in a little over a year, and I have about 80 lbs to lose, if it doesn't happen I'm sure I will survive, but I going to try my hardest to see that it does!
