Remember that the extra weight is not preventing you from looking good. Combing your hair and picking a pretty outfit will make you look good. We all want you to be fit! FitDay is about being fit. If you convert any excess fat to muscle and still weigh the same you will have achieved a victory. i am all about encouraging you to start by measuring and work on inches instead of weight. I have found that to be extremely helpful in the first few months of being newly motivated. I am all about advice too, sorry. I will encourage you to do what ever helps you achieve what ever goal you want. You go gyrl!!! Weddings are awesome.
