Hello Ladies! I am in desperate need of support. Last Wednesday I ordered my wedding dress. After the bridal consultant measured me, she gave me two options. Since my waist is 35 inches, that would make my dress a size 18 which puts me into the plus sizes and I'd have to pay an extra $50 or I could buy a size 16 and lose two inches off my waist. I was mortified to hear that I was a size 18 and would be a plus size bride if I didn't lose weight. I decided to order the size 16 and now am on a mission to lose 30lbs before my wedding day. My long term goal is 40-45 lbs and short term goal is 30lbs. I've always been thin until my late twenties and now early thirties. Since getting engaged in May I've gained about 5 lbs. Since meeting my fiance I've gained about 20lbs. I'm 5'4 and weigh 160.8lbs. I should weigh between 114-127 since I have a small frame. Today I'm starting the gym and have been taking Zumba classes every Friday. I just need to stay motivated. For some reason I lose motivation and just give up. I can't do that now. I have to lose the weight! Any tips for keeping motivated? All your support is greatly appreciated.

You definitely came to the right place for support. The girls on this thread are amazing! When I tried on wedding dresses in April I was a size 18. I am now a size 12. If I can do it, you definitely can!

Hi Mrs D. and Lisa!!! I miss you guys! I'm great! Super busy with planning now. I got my dress too!!! I need to start posting more so I can get more points to download stuff again!! LOL! I've been maintaining but haven't lost that much lately. I was doing great at going to the gym for a while but that slowed down lately. My oldest is in cheer and our schedule has been pretty hectic. I just need to get to bed early (which has been impossible with all the stuff I'm doing after work...wedding logo, reminder postcards, EVERYTHING wedding related!) and get up in the AM and go back to the gym! I still watch my points but I'm at a stage where if I don't work out I won't see as much results. Not to mention I got my dress!!!! So I NEED to tone my arms and upper body so I'm not spilling out of the top of it! LOL! I feel like time is speeding by now so I have to get back on the gym mission ASAP!

Lisa you're doing great!!! Whatever works! cheer2.gif

welcome4.gif Adurrell!!! This is a great thread to keep up with to post your progress and just vent or talk about how you're doing. We are all very supportive on here and know how hard it can be to do alone. Weight Watchers is a GREAT program and very healthy to follow. I'm glad you ordered the 16 and NOT the 18! You can do this!!! Just stay focused and make 'little' goals and you will succeed :) WW was the ONLY plan I was able to stick with and succeed with. Good Luck and have a great week!

I would have done the exact same thing, in terms of ordering the smaller dress! If you stick to the plan, I KNOW you will get there! You will look great and any time you need some support or to vent PM me!

Thanks Sammysgirl! I'm trying my hardest to stick to the plan. The long weekend wasn't so good but I'm back on track now. I have to get into the mindset of writing everything I eat down on paper. I haven't been tracking everything I eat. Today starts a new week for me. I will weigh in on Friday and keep you posted!

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • 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
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
