i don't know how old you are but age definitely is a factor in weight loss. in my mid 20s i dropped 45 lbs. in 3 months ... now in my mid 30s, i'd be *lucky* to lose that much in 6 months. i think part of the reason is due to hormones.

Great job everyone! :)

 

I agree about age...I am only 29 but I have always fluctuated in weight and these last couple years have been the hardest to drop the lbs! ;(

 

I have had a bad day today! yesterday was decent and this morning I was down another 1/2 lb but tomorrow I am scared! ;(

Yes, it's got to do with age and hormones, but also it depends on how long you've been working out. If you only started to work out at the beginning of this "contest" then you are building muscle and muscle weighs more than fat. The other thing that might be going on is your calorie intake. If your body is use to 2500 calories per day and you recently cut back to 1200 to 1500 calories per day, your body kinda†goes into shock and thinks that you are starving it so it will store fat. But keep up the cardio, the weight training and a balanced low calorie diet and you will start seeing results on the scale. But to really measure results you should be looking at your cardio endurance your strength and your measurements… who cares if the scale doesnâ€t go down if you can walk a marathon, carry your own groceries in from the car and drop a dress size or two! Keep up the good work, you will start to see results.

WAy to go girls!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

I am so proud of everyone who is really getting on board with this. I love the weekly updates. I need to kick my butt into gear. I lost 6lbs and then gained 2 lbs, stopped eating breakfast for a few days. I need to go get groceries then I will be back on track.

 

Best of luck to everyone this week. Wish me luck on melting away 3lbs this week to get back on track. My goal is 2lbs a week now.

 

Best

How was your weekend girls?

 

I quit drinking to try and rev up my weight loss so when I went to my future in-laws place this weekend, everyone was asking me if I was pregnant. One thing at a time, we're getting married in 5 months! I'm just trying to look hot in my wedding dress.

 

Has anyone tryed Body-for-Life? What did you think? My MOH and I are starting today. She called me in tears last night because she's gained 19 lbs. I've been running and really watching what I've been eating for the last three weeks so I asked her to join me. I'm so excited that we are going to be doing this together, we are going to keep each other motivated and hopefully make us even closer friends.smile29.gif

 

Cheers to another great week girls!

Becksy that is great you and MOH are going to do it together that always helps.

 

ethrondson that is great everyone is seeing your hard work, I find that once people start saying I am looking better I start to cheat which is where I am at now. I have fallen off the wagon and trying to pull myself back. I ate horrible this weekend and did not workout, I keep saying I am going to the gym today, but I am getting tired just thinking about it.

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • 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.
