Sweating for the Wedding

Yesterday marked 6 weeks since my surgery so I am able to officially start working out again!  Before my surgery, I weighed in at 178.2.  This morning, I weighed in at 173.0.  So that makes a total of 5.2 pounds lost over a 6 week period.  Of course I would have liked to have lost more, but with not being able to workout and me not eating that great, I'm happy with a 5 pound loss!

So now that I'm healed from my surgery and getting ready for a wedding, I've got to get my body back to eating right and working out.  There are 170 days to try and lose as much weight as I can and get in the best shape possible.  I have 32 pounds left until I reach my goal weight and I would LOVE to do that by the wedding!  I'm just going to work as hard as I can and see what happens.  Wanting to look good on your wedding day is GREAT motivation for working as hard as possible.

I know all the things that I need to do to be successful, so I just have to get back to doing them.

Here is my game plan:

  • Workout 5 days per week (3 at the gym and 2 at home)
  • Drink at least 64oz of water
  • Track all my food
  • Stay around 1,200 calories per day 
  • Take all my vitamins
  • Blog regularly
  • Pre-plan my meals

So here's to getting in shape for my wedding!  Thanks so much as always for all of your support and motivation!
