Any 2009 brides here?

Recommended Posts

I'm getting married February 11th in the Mayan Riviera. I've been on weight watchers for the past two months. I have lost a total of 17 pounds. I'm only 4 pounds away from my first 10% target.

 

Anyway, just wanted to say hi.

Congratulations Heather!!!! thewave.gif

 

 

I am a Feb 14, 2009 bride and we're getting married in Zihuatanejo, MX. I have done WW in the past and I originally lost about 30 pounds on it so I know it works. Right now I have cut sugar from my diet in an attempt to get a little leaner. We're going look great in that dress!!

Hi there :) Jan. 17, 2009 bride here. I'm not doing WW, but have been off and on it my whole life. Right now I'm trying to be healthy, get in my 5 Fruits and Veggies and at least 8 cups of water a day...also trying to eat the recomended 25grams of fiber (thank god I love beans!) and I've started doing Walk Away the Pounds Video's at home. Not sure how much of what is going to work, but I'm trying and I do notice a difference in my energy!

 

Congrats on the 17lb loss!! That's awesome! :)

I'm an '09er and on WW as well. I've been going about 2 months too. I'm down 10.8! Yay! I won't let myself even look at dresses until I'm down 25. Now that's an incentive!

 

17 pounds it great! Keep it up!

I'm Feb 28 09 :) I haven't officially started a diet but I've been eating a lot of fruit lately which has helped me drop a few lbs. plus going to the gym.

Hi! I am a May 2009 bride. I am also trying to shed some pounds before the big day. I have battled with weight all my life so I know how hard it is to loose weight. So Congrats on your weight loss. I have dropped a size since I started really being serious about working out which was the begining of April. Keep in mind that loosing weight after you bought your dress can become an issue because alterations can get expensive. Last year I dropped 2 sizes after ordering a BM dress for my pal's wedding and the alterations would have cost more than the dress it self!!!! Thankfully the bridal store was able to give me a new one, although it was off the rack so it had been used for fittings. But good luck with your weight loss and Congrats!!!!

Well you guys have me feeling a little guilty. I'm getting married in April of 2009. I'm trying to exercise but I don't particularly eat that well. Maybe I should be dieting too! haha

My logic is that those dresses really tuck you in and make you look skinny right? Isn't that the purpose? I haven't bought a dress yet so who knows

Wow there are a lot of us.

 

I battled anorexia for about 10 years when I was younger, then once I hit 20- I got really depressed and gained close to 100 pounds- making me around 240. I know- wowers!!!! Thankfully I met my fiance then and he put me on the right course.

 

Now, I'm down to 192, and I have about 35 pounds to go. I'm pretty tall and I am built like a football player [my dad used to be a pro] so I'm not suppose to be too skinny. :)
