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!

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. :)

    • Unfortunately, pregnancy yoga training is a time of extreme. It's all part of the deal; even the stress is often a normal effect of the hormones that are raging through your system. But you have to keep stress at a controlled level because you have to think of your health and that of your baby. Here are some tips on how to keep stress at bay during pregnancy: 1. Evaluate your activities. Pregnancy is a time of many changes; your body is changing and your life is also about to change. You are transitioning to becoming a new mother. While you're at it, it's high time to change your activities as well. Evaluate your activities by checking your schedule. Perhaps you lived quite a busy life before. That can be pretty stressful and may even put your pregnancy at risk, so it would be best to slow things down a bit now that you're pregnant. Pregnancy has its way of affecting your mood and making you feel tired all the time, so there will be times when you just won't be productive. So instead of piling up on tasks, choose activities that you can drop or delegate to someone else. 2. Break the bad habits. Whether you really were trying to get pregnant or pregnancy crept up on you, somewhere along the way you will face the need to break your bad habits. What are these notorious bad habits you definitely have to say goodbye to during your pregnancy? · Smoking · Alcohol consumption · Too much coffee or any other beverage that contains caffeine One good way of breaking bad habits, even ones that you've had for years, is subliminal programming. Subliminal programming means re-training the mind; it works in two steps: · Removing negative embedded factors in the subconscious Since this method communicates directly with the subconscious, which is responsible for directing our actions and behaviors, it is more effective than consciously deciding to stop smoking or drinking. 3. Take up meditation. If you haven't tried it before, now is the best time to take up meditation. There are many tips and instructions online as well as many books on the subject. You can learn it on your own or join a meditation class. Meditation is the art of emptying the mind to relax both the mind and the body. It is also very effective in regulating emotions, which can be hard to control when you're pregnant. If you have plenty of time to spare, join a yoga class. 4. Block the horror stories. Every woman who's been pregnant loves telling her pregnancy stories to non-pregnant or newly pregnant women. It's their way of saying "welcome to the club." While good advice is particularly helpful, most women tend to share horror stories, or stories of how stressful and emotional pregnancy was for them. You may also use subliminal messages to train your mind to block these negative stories, so you can focus on the positive things about your pregnancy. There are many positive things, too, the biggest of which is the new life inside you, so you won't run out of good thoughts to nurture in your mind.   Safe and Easy Workouts to Do During Your Pregnancy The main rule of thumb when exercising while pregnant is to modify your workouts to suit the trimester you are in and to honor what is happening to your body. What is deemed appropriate for your first trimester is certainly not for your third trimester. However, there are several exercises that you can perform right through to the end. Let's examine the first trimester. You are just beginning your nine-month journey. You may be feeling a bit more tired, perhaps queazy, but you may not even be showing a baby bump yet. At this time, if you have already had a workout program in place, you can continue with what you've been doing.  Some doctors may not advise any lying down exercises at any time during your pregnancy, but speak with your physician to determine if this modification is necessary. Appropriate exercise for the first trimester: • your normal routine (within limits) • walking • swimming • low impact aerobics (keeping heart rate low) • strength training • yoga As you move into your second trimester, you may be feeling a surge of energy but your body is showing the pregnancy more and certain workouts may not feel as good. Around this time, lying down is not totally recommended and keeping heart rate low and core body temperature low is important. The importance of abdominal and pelvic floor strength should be highlighted throughout your pregnancy, so if you haven't already started, Kegal exercises should be implemented in all workouts you do. What is a Kegal? The pelvic floor muscles are like a hammock of muscles located at the base of your torso and under your pelvis. To do a Kegal, simply engage the muscles that you would use to urinate. Keeping these muscles strong may make for an easier birth and less pregnancy related incontinence. Appropriate exercise for the second trimester: • Kegal exercises • pelvic tilts (with head elevated with pillows) • walking • swimming • easy yoga • strength training (lighter weights) As you move into your third trimester, you are now getting to the top of your pregnancy weight which may change the way you stand, how long you can sit, and your sense of balance. Aches and pains from your changing body are probably felt more now. Workouts now become about making you comfortable and making sure you simply maintain what you have. A safe abdominal exercise, which also makes your back feel great, is an all-fours cat stretch and contraction. To do: on a rug or sticky mat, go down onto hands and knees. Keeping back straight, simply pull your abdominals in towards your spine without altering the straight position of your back.. Repeat 10 times. From there, round your back up, like an angry cat, feeling a stretch over your shoulders and spine, then release. Repeat 5 times. Prenatal yoga is great for elevating your mood, may help you sleep better, and decreases pregnancy aches and pains. Just make sure you speak with your doctor first and remember to never start a new program while pregnant. Keeping up with what you're doing is super and will make for an easier birth and a faster recovery.
