    Way to go!!! My first dress fitting will probably be when I go home for Christmas, and I'm planning on doing my BD's in February... I seriously gotta get my ass in gear... It's crunch time!

      It is funny, i feel like the wedding and the dress are the main motivator for dedicating myself to weight watchers, the gym, and my health in general... but though i am excited for looking great on the wedding day, i think i am more excited to look/feel great everyday... I am happy for this push, but i really hope i can keep it up!

      That being said, i hope that after the wedding, that i will be able to put something into my mouth without wondering how many points it is, or feeling guilt. I don't want to be this uptight forever!

          I'm with you edssbride09. I'm soooo excited to lose the weight for my wedding but I'm just as excited that I'm fitting into my old clothes and that I feel more comfortable in my own skin every day!
          Will it ever be nice though to be able to go to a party and eat all the bread and dip that I want and not have to freak out about what the scale says the next day!!

          I'm doing pretty good today. I had a 100 cal chocolate bar which was the only unhealthy thing I ate all day. I'm not sure what I'm going to have for supper though cause it's 4:30 here and I have to be back to work for parent-teacher by 5:45 and there's not a whole lot around the house. If I have to give into take-outs maybe the best decision would be Subway...let's hope I'm that strong!

          No working out for me today. I'm feeling a little burnt out and my low back is starting to act up. I've been going all out every time I go to the gym cause I figure if I take the time to go I may as well make it worth my time...but I'm feeling it catch up with me now...time to take a very little break!

            Hey Guys!

            I am a little late on this! I have gained almost 20lbs. in the past year! I really want to lose it! My fiance has cancer...and you have to eat with him or he won't eat! However, I think we came to an understanding and I gotta drop it!
            I would love to drop 5 by Christmas and then keep it going with 5lbs a month! Then that dress will look the way I want!

            Thank so much for making this thread!

              ...I also don't mean to crash on your thread...I'm a May Bride (May 1...so pretty close).
              I've been working out for the last 6 months hard. I've lost a lot of inches (fitting into pants 2 sizes smaller than what I was), and seeing definition in my arms/stomach!!!

              I eat very clean during the week, and indulge on the weekends into a little vino & snacks.
              I find the 'eating clean' helps a lot. Eggs, Salad, Chicken, Lots of Water and Green tea are a staple for me.
              I've been doing 5 days a week at the gym, and two yoga/pilates classes ontop of that.
              The 5 days of work out are the 'Winning by Losing' work out. If anyone has ever heard of it, it's great. It's an hour of weights/cardio mixed together. You can buy the book at any book store...the girl that wrote it is the really fit girl from 'The Biggest Loser' show. That is my 'secret'. Everyone at work has been asking me how I do it...it's that book!

              A work out partner helps a lot too...they motivate you to get your butt to the gym!!

              Keep going ladies!...it's a hard battle...but it's worth it in the end!

                Alright ladies (and any gents)... I know Thanksgiving hit most of us pretty hard (especially with my aunt's homemade cheesecake - which I only ate two bites of . . . yay me for will power and self control!).

                Let's keep moving and shaking!

                  2 bites? I don't think I could have that sort of self control... for me it's the whole piece or nothing at all. I'm impressed that you can do that! I wish I had that sort of will power!!!

                    So do I, cheesecake is my weakness. I am still trying to figure out how I can behave over the holidays and keep losing.
