"The Straw That Broke This Camel's Back"

Recommended Posts

I am with you on this one!

 

I gained 10 dating my finace...then another 10 in cancer weight (he has it...trying to get him to eat...you eat...not good)! Well, heck the dog gained 8 too during that time...so it isn't hard to gain weight!

 

I am trying to get 20 off by April...but it is freakin' hard!

 

PLease don't let it get you down! I think the fact that he makes you feel so comfortable with yourself that it is awesome! However, my mom lost a ton from cutting down on cheese and eating items with less than 10% saturated fat...and that is my new method...oh and walking!

 

Good Luck! You can do this...we have been there or are there!

Sadly, I think your story is all too normal for some of us. I was skinny when I met Matt (after having gained weight with a previous boyfriend and then losing it all), and I started to pack on the lbs as soon as I met Matt practically. It's the eating, drinking, fun stuff that new couples do! I lost some for the wedding, but I've gained it back again. So it's an ongoing battle. Weight Watchers is the way to go though! I lost about 10 lbs on that before the wedding and it was really easy to do. It's totally about breaking habits and learning portion control. Good luck!

I've been there too! (still there actually...but on the right track!)

I just started walking my dog (usually 15-20 mins twice a day) and cutting back on my portions (and carbs!). Instead of having a sandwhich and a huge honkin salad I'll have an open faced sandwich (one slice of bread) and half a salad, or a cup of soup. You'll be surprised with what effect it has! It's not a quick process by any means, but it works!

Good Luck!

I lost 25 pounds on WW, so I know it can be done! I have another 5 to go for the wedding since I will be in a bikini in front of family & friends. Tracking is great...and it teaches you to pay attention to how much you consume!
I had the same moment last night!! I started to look through pictures on my KodakGallery (both myself and all of my friends use it post pics of our 'outings' and celebrations).. I freaked and barely recognized myself from pics 2 - 3 years ago compared to now. I was showing my BM some of them today from 3 years ago and she said "OH... is that really you?" wtf.gif She knew me back then.. LOL. I guess when it happens gradually; none of us realize it.

I gained 50+ pounds in the time that my husband and I have been together, 6 years.

 

Not fun. I still have the jeans I wore on our first date. They were KIDS SIZE!!!!! I will get back into them one day! LOL

 

Easy fixes are to cut out excess carbs and sugar. Quit drinking sodas and juice and try to just drink water. Watch how much salt and alcohol you take in because it makes you bloated.

 

I use Free Diet Plans at SparkPeople a FREE online weight loss site. It has amazing food calculators, fitness trackers, articles, meal plans/grocery lists etc.

 

I've lost 6 pounds in 2 weeks just by keeping track of my foods. If I know I have to write it down, I'm less likely to eat the 400 calorie slice of chocolate cake.

 

Try to sneak in exercise any way you can. Park farther away from your building, take the stairs, suck your stomach in, and be more active on the weekends.

 

I know it's hard, but you can do it! Good luck!

You are definitely not alone! I joined WW online too very recently, and it is totally working! I have already dropped 5 lbs, which was so hard for me to do before! Now i have 10 to go and i will be so happy. So stick with the program, watch what you eat, exercise and the pounds will drop away. Your wedding day will be even more satisfying when you feel better about yourself.

 

Good luck!

I agree with Kelly...accountability is the key. It has helped me tremendously.

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
