I have recently found out that my brother and his fiance' are planning their wedding for June 2004. My future sister-in-law asked me to be her Matron of Honor for this special event. I thought that was really sweet of her and... rather surprising. She is having 5 other skinny ones (110 to 130 Ibs.) in the wedding also. I weigh about 195 Ibs. at the moment. To keep from looking really out of place, I have just got to lose these pounds before next year. I mean I really don't want to look like the GoodYear blimp in all those wedding pictures. Now, I know this may sound a bit desperate but I am really considering slimfast and exercise as my short-term solution. :imbar You know, two shakes a day and one balanced meal. I have always been somewhat leary of diet shakes and pills, but I am just to busy to count calories while trying to work and go to school. I was wondering if any you guys have tried the slimfast plan and if so, what is your personal opinion of it ?
