I started my weightloss journey 3 years ago. So far I've lost 50lbs. Sometimes I get lazy and don't work out or eat really unhealthy, but I'm learning to be more consistant.

My program consists of random workout videos, walking, and being mindful of what I eat.

    Thank you for your very kind comment on your blog! I am so happy that I have helped motivate you! It is definitely possible to lose 20 pounds before your wedding! Honestly it hasn't even been that tough for me. Let me know if I can help in any way!

    My top three tips are:

    1. Drink lots of water and cut out other beverages (except tea/coffee w/o sugar).
    2. Track everything religiously and stay in caloric cheat days!
    3. Get in at least 30 minutes of cardio a day, and about 10 minutes of strength training every few days.

    Voila! It's working for me! Good luck and happy wedding planning! What an exciting time for you!

    Your comment on my blog made my day when I read it! I feel so grateful to be an inspiration to someone when I so often look to others for my inspiration. Thank you! The 10 minutes of exercise a day was actually pretty easy to stick to. If I didn't feel like going to the gym, I just found a 10 minute workout online. Way to workout for 50 minutes! I have yet to do that this year! How did your grocery trip go? emoticon

    That is awesome!! I have to admit, I really like them (I also modify some of the moves - I'm not that good lol), and one workout is definitely enough :) I'm still keeping my fingers crossed for you that you get the Force for Valentine's Day - that would probably help make you feel a lot better about how many calories you're burning. emoticon

    Sorry I've slacked on keeping up with my posts! Thanks for the link to the workouts! That was a smart way to amp up the cardio-kickboxing workout! I hope your week is off to a great start!
