My name is Autumn, I'm 26, I don't have any human kids (but two cute kitties!), and I am currently engaged to be married -hopefully- next summer!

Two years ago, I was living in France, eating pastries and cheese, drinking wine all the time, and not gaining a thing because I walked everywhere! Well that was wonderful until I came back to the US and found that I'm still addicted to cheese, sugar, and wine, but now it's starting to show! I've gained THIRTY pounds over the past year, and I intend to lose every bit of that before my wedding!

Current weight: 160
Goal weight: 130
Goal loss per month: 6 pounds


As a general rule, I don't allow pictures to be taken of me anymore (because I can't stand to see myself), but here's a picture comparison: You can see that my jawline is less defined (my face is rounder), my arms are fuller, and I wear clothes that hide my love handles and my belly and my arms!
 
I will face many struggles...mainly kicking the sugar habit, refusing wine and alcohol of all sorts, eliminating many fats, carbs, and empty calories, and motivating my lazy self to exercise! I need to start drinking more water and less diet soda, and I need to establish a daily routine.

I'll try to take better pictures so that we can watch my progress. Please feel free to send your support and advice, because I'm sure I'll need it! Thanks all!

I'm not sure yet! I usually use the exercise bike at the gym for cardio, then focus mainly on arm exercises because I'm really self-conscious about my upper arms! I also bought a weighted hula-hoop, and I've heard that can be an effective and fun way to shed pounds at home.

I've never been good at exercising (as silly as that may sound), I have asthma and couldn't run easily as a kid, so I have developed an aversion to it. I know I need to push myself in exercising, but if I only want to lose 1.5 pounds per week, I should be able to do basic exercising and still meet my goals.

Do you have any suggestions of workouts for beginners?
