Weight loss for the wedding!

I am trying to do intermediate fasting along with drinking apple cider vinegar, lemon juice, and honey with a bit of water to try and lose weight… my dress is a size 12 and my pants size is 16… I’ve got a lot of weight losing to do but I know I can do it! I am using an app that tells me when i can eat and when i can’t (just started it today) I know I can do this… at least I hope I can…

Of course you can do it. I know you can. You will be the most beautiful bride in your beautiful dress and you will be so happy. Everything is going to work out perfect. You’ll see.

@Leaf thanks for the vote of confidence! ^.^ I just need self discipline… I’ve ate two meal replacements before deciding I was gonna fast but it’s how my mom is losing weight although hers isn’t intentional it’s just she hasn’t ate much since dad died (she went into her normal habits that she had before him)

@Leaf I remember when I was young I was a size 7… such a wonderful time! I didn’t really eat much until one of my ex’s fed me chocolate and pasta 24/7

I’ve never been that small. I’ve always been plus. The smallest I’ve been is a 12/14. But I felt pretty good at that size, especially compared to now, size 20. blech.

@Leaf I cried when after I gave birth I still weighed over 200 lbs… I just felt so… gross and still do in a way but I’m trying my best here! My mom has a plan if I don’t lose the weight or if I lose to much… we’re gonna hire a seamstress to fix my dress however I need it fixed

Use a calorie calculator and a calories counter. It will calculate the calories required to lose weight according to your height and weight and age.

Good luck! I eat 1200 calories a day, and I exercise 5 times a week and it works for me

A very wise person once told me to never diet before the wedding, because you will be under enough stress as it is. Better to get a different dress or get yours fitted than to put yourself under that physical and emotional strain.

@Aziz @ZmaGal I’ve tried counting calories it don’t seem to work for me… so I’m hopeful this will help

@Wave thank you

@ninjastar I say it’s for the wedding but in truth the wedding is so far off it’s for me and being healthier, I am in the “obese” BMI and I don’t wanna become like my dad… sick and unable to stop eating when needed… I love my dad and miss him and I know he isn’t biologically my dad but I have diabetes running on both sides of my family and so did he

@Leaf @Aziz @ZmaGal @Wave @ninjastar
I’m 10 and a half hours into my first fast! So proud of myself! 5 and a half hours to go before food time!

I do my fasting over night. I sleep through most of it.

I can tell you from experience this isn’t going to help you lose weight.

It will, however,
