At the age of 19, I was 240 pounds and a size 20. It took me 3 years to lose 45 pounds... when I turned 22, I kicked it into gear and lost 41 pounds in a year getting me down to 154 pounds, size 8 for a total of 86 pounds lost. My Fiancee at the age of 23 was 340 pounds, he lost 120 pounds in 2 years. Then we started dating, we got comfy, I love to cook, and lo and behold, we gained weight back. Now that our wedding plans are set, we have a goal.
Week one: 1/24 - cut out the salt, start our diet, join a gym.
Week two: Down 7 pounds - cutting out salt will do that to you :) - went to the gym 4 out of 7 days last week. I was hurting for awhile, feeling better just in time to start all over again!
We live in the lovely state of Michigan.... my Fiancee Matt is from the Chicago IL area, I was born and raised here.
We met about 4 years ago, he was a patient of mine when I was a Medical Assistant for a weight loss clinic. Over the next 2 years we would periodically see each other when he would come in for appointments but him being a patient, and us both being unavailable at the time, it didn't seem like anything. Eventually, our relationships fell through, his engagement and my boyfriend, so he asked me to hang out with him and his friends on his birthday in Jan 2009. We haven't left each others side since.
We became engaged in August of 2010, he asked me the day we signed the papers in our new home.
We are planning a trip to Las Vegas in May and a wedding at the Grand Canyon. I am both excited and nervous trying to plan this trip and knowing nothing about Las Vegas makes it worse. So if you have any tips on what to do, where to stay ect, PLEASE message me!
Thanks so much and congrats to all of you!
