Any 2009 brides here?

Recommended Posts

I also joined WW and I have been on it for 3 weeks and lost 8lbs. I am so excited bc I had been working out and dieting (so I thought) but the scale would not budge for a couple of months. Turns out I think my portions were too big. The WW online is awesome.

Hi Ladies!

 

I just joined the BDW forum and just noticed this thread!!! This will be my 8th week on WW and I absolutely love it!!! I've lost 10.6 lbs so far (and 5 lbs before that on my own). My wedding is in January 2009, in Huatulco, Mexico!

 

I just got so pumped the other day - I saw a bunch of girls who did their Boudoir photos, and now I want to as well! This is a great way to stay motivated!!! I just really want to look good on the beach, you know??!?!

Wow! What amazing stories! I'm also a 09 bride... November 6th to be exact at Tulum, Mexico. I ordered my dress a size smaller and I've dropped 30 lbs since my MOH's wedding last August. 35 more to go... I know I can do it... especially since reading the entries here! Way to go ladies, all it takes is thinking about that little white dress/bathing suit!

Thanks for sharing the info about this website! I signed up last week and love it! It's so easy to enter your food and keep track. I haven't weighed myself to know if it's working, guess I should do that soon...blah.... I'm getting married on February 4, 2009 - less than 6 months to go! It occured to me that I better get my ars in gear because time is running out!

I need a short, realistic timeline. I only have about 10 pounds to lose, plus a bunch of tightening up/toning, so hopefully I can do that in 6 months (although it's really hard for me to lose weight for some reason).
September 2009 bride!
I think that sounds like a good idea, I might do that too. I have about 10 to lose too. Unfortunately I have less time than ever to workout because I'm working 2 jobs now to pay for this wedding. And I have a really hard time loosing weight even though I'm pretty active. (I drink too much caffeine and use the old excuse "I don't have time to eat right") shameonyou.gif Shame in me!

I was originally thinking we'd get married in Cabo, but my fiance actually has gone from loving Dreams in Cabo to the Riu Jalisco in PV. He fell in love with the gazebo and that is all he talks about. I really need to decide on a place and get moving because Februray is right around the corner. Any advice on where to starthuh.gif
Hi! I live about 20 min north of you in Maryland. I hear you on having a hard time picking a place. I did too. My finace loved Cabo but we ended up picking (or maybe I should say I) Cancun just because we had both been there before and loved it. Plus, I really didn't feel like dragging all my guests on a five hour plane ride. I say sit down and think about what you really want, like do you want to be in an area where there are lots of things to do, or do you want something more private and remote. What kinds of activities would you like to do before/after the wedding, if any?
Good luck!

I'm not officially part of WW but I do enjoy their desserts! Anyone tried the new peanut butter cup sundae? Considering peanut butter cups are like my all time favorite food, I thought I died and went to heaven when I ate this dessert yesterday!!! I've lost 7 lbs so far and being healthy never tasted soooo good. These desserts are my little treats several times a week. YUMMY!

Congrats on the weight loss. I am an Oct of 09 Bride. I have been in the gym, but I don't eat that great because I am picky. I did WW once and had good results, maybe I need to go back to the points.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
