Counting down to my wedding

Postby futuremrsA » Wed Mar 11, 2009 8:14 pm

I'm 31 and engaged to the most wonderful man :D
We are planning to marry in Fiji in April 2010.

We have decided to start getting healthy, not just for the wedding but for our health and wellbeing. I started today with a walk home from work (30mins walk). The idea is to get dropped off in the morning (we don't have showers at work so I don't like the idea of turning up all sweaty and stink :roll: ), then walk home after work which today seemed like forever, but I actually felt better once I got home :D

I'm working towards losing approx 40kgs. I weigh 109kgs at the moment. I'll be happy to get down to 80kgs but aiming for 70kgs.

Both of us are smokers. I'm not ready to quit but working towards cutting back slowly till I get to a point where I will eventually quit using Champix.

We have started a weekly eating plan, starting from tonight.

Fingers crossed xxxxx

Welcome futuremrsA (i like the name! :D )
Congrats on your engagement and and of course deciding to get healthy. That's great too that you have decided to do it together, I'm sure it will make it easier to have the extra support from your man when he's going through the same :)
Good luck with it all, and the wedding plans. Very exciting! :D
Have a great week.
Jane :)

Wow, a wedding - congratulations! That's a great incentive to get healthy. Also congratulations on your decision to quit smoking and lose weight. These are both huge decisions to make that are both affecting your health in a negative way. To make the decision to work on both is just amazing - a applaud you! :D Best of luck squared :D :D Alexandra

Good luck with everthing. Be aware that Champix has many many side affects including depression etc. I would be waiting until you have exercised consistentely for at least a month before trying these tabs. This way you will be in a routine and already releasing endorphins etc. Can't wait to hear your progress.
