Hi Everyone,

I've looked at this forum a few time and decided it was time that I should get involved. I currently weigh 88kg and i'm pretty tall - close to 6 foot. I recently got engaged and like all brides to be would love to look great. I want to weigh about 70kg for my wedding which will be in 2 years. But that means i need to lose it in one year because once i buy my dress i can't lose or gain any weight. So i have 1 year and 2 months to lose 18kg. I will start of with 2kg for January and build up from there.

My downfall is lack of will power and lack of motivation. I have enough to get started but struggle to keep going. I play netball on Monday nights and i want to play grass hockey this winter which should help. I tend to eat fairly healthy my problem is portions and eating when i'm not hungry like when i'm bored. So any advice and motivation tips would be greatly appreciated.

Wish me luck for my journey.

Congratulations!! and welcome!

In regards to your dress... I have a friend who recently got married, and she had just had lap band surgery. So she was losing a lot of weight and it wasnt clear what she would lose by the wedding. She made sure that she got her dress from somewhere that would do alterations right up till the last month, which was really good! Make sure you look around and ask about that... the place she found were really supportive and helpful!
