Default I will be the hottest bridesmaid!

I'm back!!! My friend just got engaged and she set the date! I have 360 days to lose 20pounds. This morning I weighed in at 159.6pounds, meaning my goal weight would be 139.6pounds. So lets do it! Time to eat right and exercise more often.

Next Monday I will be joining a 6week bootcamp with my friend, and I have started to go back to the gym. Now I just need to get food under control- meaning no late night sweet tooth cravings and eating more fruits and veggies. I bought a blender this weekend and started making smoothies for breakfast...yum. Today I had a smoothie with 3strawberries, 2 pineapple pieces, 1tablespoon of vanilla yogurt (unprocessed), with some pineapple juice.

I made a blog journey on this website a few weeks ago, i need to figure out how to use it. haha. Any suggestions???

I've been telling my bf that I want a blender or Jack Lalanne's Juicer so I can make smoothies too -- it seems like it'd be the easiest way to get my fruits/veggie servings in a day.

20 Pounds will be a piece of cake in a year. Just have to constantly focus on the end result and remember that that piece of cake isn't worth the way you're going to look in your bridesmaid gown.

Good luck!

I'm trying to lose 1 pound a week up until 27th May, so I think 20 lbs in 1 year is completely do-able! Sounds like you've got the diet in mind, have you considered what exercise you're going to be doing? Eating right and exercising at least 3 time a week will get those pounds shredded off you in no time! You'll probably lose more than 20 pounds!
Taking a break from 3FC, thanks guys!

Goal 1: Halfway point to borderline Overweight/Healthy BMI~ 165 lbs
Goal 2: Weight when I was 17 ~ 159 lbs
Goal 3: Borderline Overweight/Healthy BMI ~ 150 lbs
Goal 4: Lightest weight ever! ~ 148 lbs
Goal 5: Lighter than Boyfriend ~ 145 lbs
Goal 6: Halfway point to Healthy BMI ~ 140 lbs
Final Goal: Midpoint of healthy BMI range (21.6) ~ 130 lbs

You can totally do it! I had the same start weight as you and my goal was to lose 20 lbs before I was in a wedding at the first of July. I started March 1st and I was exactly 139 on the day of her wedding! It was awesome because I had ordered my bridesmaid dress at my heavy weight and when it came it I had to order another smaller size and then that dress was even too big on the day!! You can totally do that in a year no problem

I echo everyone else; you can do it keep your eye on the prize!

20 pounds in a year is VERY doable.

I just read this month's Glamour and laughed at the "Hey it's OK" section. One of the points was.
-to pretend you're getting in shape for your wedding even when there's no ring on your finger. Really, whatever motivates you.

I wanted to be 173 for a wedding I'm attending on 8/20. I'm currently at 198-199 and it probably won't happen. Still I'll solidly be inside the range of what I weighed in college. It's a victory to at least not be heavier than when everyone saw me last.
