Slim Down Team Work!

Any brides who want to team up and help each other slim down for their gown with me? I don't have social media, there aren't a lot of gym classes near me and I'm having trouble staying motivated on my own to lose the last 30 pounds before my December wedding!

    Dont get too stressed out!! You just started nursing school and have a lot going on. Go when you can and dont stress out when you cant. Theres always going to be great weeks where you go everyday and then weeks where you never make it.

    Your welcome. I figure that's one of the reasons we joined this chat. Smiley smile Plus I lost 50ish pounds a few years ago then gained it all back and am trying to loose it again. One of the reasons I joined noom is because it seems sustainable. One of the things they repeatedly talk about is that everyone has slip ups/bad days/weeks etc. And that just because you hit a rough patch that doesnt mean you failed and to stop trying. You can still work your way back.

    Drink more water! If you really want a snack in 15 minutes get one. Smiley smile

    🙃 I managed to resist. I did end up drinking one extra Dr. Pepper today because I had to do some driving after work and needed the pick up. How was your day.

    How is your day looking so far? We are supposed to get pizza at work today since "we did such a good job for the corporate walk"🙄 I am going to try to keep it to one or two slices.

    Two slices sounds tasty! Another stressful day, didn't get to the gym and I got home a few minutes ago from class.

    It was alright. I ended up doing alot of running around. Picked up a few things from work that I needed, stopped to see what Spirit Halloween had (seasonal costume/Halloween store), stopped at FH aunts house to pick something up, and stopped at the grocery store before I finally got to go home.

    I was on vacation last week, just got home tonight so I am sure I gained a few pounds with all the yummy but bad eating I did. Getting back on track tomorrow though.

    I have just joined a gym and have started to try and eat healthier but it is taking a while for the weight to shift. Hope everyone else is going well with their weight loss journeys. Smiley smile

    Thats great! I was doing really good but then went on vacation followed by 2 weekends in a row of camping so got off course 🙄 but getting back on course tomorrow. Thankfully I still have time to get back on track. I love sweets so thats been the hardest to avoid.
