Default I need a friend :)

Okay guys heres the story...I am nearly 24 years old and am getting married next September. I want to lose 35 pounds and tone up but cannot seem to find the discipline to do so. I exercise sporadically and meetign eating habits are just as random. I think I need someone to be accountable to. I have tried another forum here and it worked as long as I remeber to come here!
Anyway any suggestions are greatly appreciated!

Join in our September challenge. It is a great way to stay accountable for your exercise. I did the August one and exercised over 1700 minutes! It helped me lose weight for my wedding goal. I surpassed my goal by one pound. That is the best thing I have found for helping me make sure to at least get in a 20 minute walk each day.

Good luck and welcome!

Hi there. I am getting married too, have about the same to lose. I don't know my wedding date for sure, but I am thinking less than a year. These boards have helped me so much. And like Meredith said, the September challenge is a great way to keep acountable. I look forward to adding my exercise everyday! I also write down what I eat, which makes me very aware (I count calories too). Good luck! Hope to see you around!

My best advice is to come here and talk! The ladies here are great, and keep me on track... I have never lasted in a diet / exercise thing as long as I have while here (One month! lol) It's a great form of support!

Good start Laura...keep it goin'. Remember not to feel discouraged if you see others on this board losing at a quicker pace...many of us (myself included) have a lot more to lose! The cool thing you've got going is that there is less difference in pant sizes in smaller sizes than in larger sizes (i.e. I had to lose 30 lbs to go from a tight size 20 pants to a comfortable size 16, where as you'll probably go down a pant size after another 10-12 lbs). Congrats girl...here's to a healthier you...and soon enough, a smaller you!
