I didn't see your post about your dress, but I wanted to tell you congrats! That's amazing progress (and it looks like you've lost almost 40 pounds since you started on Dietbet - so awesome!) :]

Also, I am adding you on FitBit :]

Lindsay Y

I lied. I couldn't find you. Add me, if you want :]

I added you and thank you so much! I switched to a new scale after my first diet bet so my numbers are a little off. There was a 5LB difference in the scales so i'm down 44.6lbs :) I'm so happy with my progress! I hope yours is going well for you!

I totally missed your post about your dress and the alterations. WTG!! that is so awesome!! 2 sizes smaller wow!

Jackie G.

Thank you!!! I have lost another 15lbs since I tried my dress on. Hoping for another size drop by my final fitting!!! Now I'm kind of wishing I ordered my dress 3 sizes too small but I was worried I wouldn't be able to do it.

Great job Jackie! I'm also a bride to be (My wedding is April of 2014) and I know how you feel wanting to look your best on that special day! We took engagement photos in early Sept and I was NOT happy with how heavy I was in them. I definitely feel the struggle, but I know we can both make it happen! Good Luck on your weight loss journey and congrats on your upcoming wedding!

Jackie G.

Congrats on your upcoming wedding, too! Mine was supposed to be April 2014 but we had to change it up to March. Luckily our engagement photos had to be held off until January so I'm hoping to look and feel more confident by then! Best of luck to you on your weigh loss journey! We've totally got this!

Hey Jackie!!! Thanks! I love the youtube weight loss community its great! Have you commented on my videos...do you have a channel?

Jackie G.

I haven't commented yet but I will at some point! (watching your pizza recipe right now) I don't have a channel i'm not sure i'm cool enough to be a vlogger. LOL! I love how much I can relate to you. I am a recent college grad and am now a teacher. So, I totally get what it's like to be studying your butt off to get good grades and working jobs/internships. I gained a lot of weight in college. In 2009/2010 I made health a priority and lost 70lbs in about 8 months. Then, I met my fiance and decided to spend more time with him and less time at the gym... and eventually I got back into my old eating habits and I gained 80lbs :( I am currently trying to get my life back on track and especially for our upcoming wedding. I am 17lbs lighter than my heaviest and I hope to not give up this time! I'm taking it all the way!!

We all do it for different reasons but we share the most important one. WE CAN DO IT! I love that we can all give eachother that small extra PUSH!
