    Wedding in 10 weeks!

    Primal Fuel
    I'm getting married in 10 weeks and want to use the 30 day challenge to lose at least 5kg. I've been following a Paleo diet for around 3-months and although I've only lost about 2kg I have lost 3% of my body fat, 4cm from my waist, 2cm from triceps, 2cm from hips so all round pretty good result.

    My big challenge is consistency with diet and alcohol. I am good all week with Paleo meals and workouts only to lose control on the weekends!! Need all the help I can to get myself to my goal. Any tips welcome or advice so I keep up the motivation. Will log daily food diary and workouts here.

    Sounds familiar. I'm not getting married, but I have a similar goal as yours. To get back in shape in ~10 weeks.

    I'm also doing the 30 day challenge, starting today, so hopefully we will both succeed.

    Good luck!

    Be strict. My best losses were when I avoided the alcohol and excess carbs.

    My wedding is on Saturday, and though I'm not at the goal I set at the beginning, I'm so much happier with my health now than when I started. It's a side-benefit I never saw coming.

    Good luck!

    I have made a point to quit alcohol for the 30 days.It always sets me off what I am doing and I end up on a binge or being non primal.This time I am 18 days in and now alcohol.I have already lost over 5kg as well as 10 inches or so.
    Good luck with your challenge

    Alcohol is a killer for me too. I love getting a nice buzz and enjoying myself, but I doubt it ever does much good for my body when I drink.
