WW for 2010 Brides!!

Recommended Posts

Hi and welcome everyone! So my weddng is only 4 months and 2 days away so during this holiday season I am just taking it one day at a time and avoiding the goodies at work that are all over the place. Luckily for me my fiance is a great workout partner and has made it easier for me to stay on track where our workouts are concerned so that has helped too. We have a potluck at work today so my goal for stuff like this and the next few days of family gatherings is MODERATION :) I can eat what I want but will just take mini portions.

 

Congrats on your recent successes Melfredo! I know how motivating those weekly weigh in are! I'm sure you'll still do good through the new year.

Maybe you and your mom can get together and have your own meeting. You can weigh each other in and talk about how you guys can stay on track during the holidays. If you donâ€t have a scale available you can always take your measurements.

Hi Vallarta and deddmach! Good luck with your weight loss! I think that the holidays is a great time to start working on your diet, I think we need all the motivation we can get during the holidays! If we can stick with our weight loss during the holidays, we can stick with it during anything!

And a DW is a great motivator to work towards our goal weights!
That's a great idea! Thanks for the advice! I'll get together with Mom and talk about it with her :)

I know! I can’t believe it is 2010 already!!!! Veronica, you have plenty of time to lose the 12lbs you want to (according to your counter). Now that the holidays are over it will be so much easier to stay on track. Unfortunately it is my birthday on the 12th so I still have dinners and food coming up to handle. I have to track my food or I will get off the wagon really fast. Thank goodness I am a WW leader and I do classes every week that help remind me of my own goals. I gained about 12lbs since the fall and I am 17lbs away from my goal. I have till April to lose it for a DW I am going to.

 

So far I am starting off the New Year well! Good Luck Ladies!

I am getting scared! Only 3.5 months left and 30lbs to go. I don't want to be a chubby bride sad.gif But I am such a stress eater. ughhhhh
I know! Me too!! Our wedding dates are coming SO FAST!!! How did this happenhuh.gif? .... BUT we still have plenty of time to get into great shape! Just make every single day count :)

Well, I'm happy to say I've been really good at making it to the gym every day this week so far. If I miss a morning workout I have to go in the evening to make up for it so it motivates me to get out of bed! It really helps that my fiance likes to go with me too. Except this morning I got up (at 5:30 a.m.) and he said he wasn't going today because he couldn't fall asleep until past 12:30am. So I said o.k. and just went by myself... well after being on the tredmill for 10 minutes he showed up at the gym after all! I think we're in competition for who goes the most days..lol!

Hi all! :) I just noticed this post and it caught my eye. I have not been to WW, but we follow some of the recipes, and eat very healthy. While we go through phases (usually more intensely before a Caribbean vacation lol), we have started 2010 determined to eat well and lose some pounds. As the food is pretty consistent, my focus needs to be on excercise.

 

I would LOVE to be in on the motivation that you guys provide, as I am finding it hard to get back in the work-out groove!! lol..I did go twice this week though.

Hi sungoddess_08! Even though I could improve my diet, exercise has been hard for me too.

 

I really need to get back into things. I have my teaching my WW meetings and I feel like a hypocrite telling my members what to do and me not doing it. I am above my goal by 7lbs. I was doing great last week, but it was my birthday on Tuesday and I went out to dinner that night, and I got a lot of chocolate and a cake. I also have a dinner planned Saturday and Sunday and Sunday I am getting another cake! I NEED to control myself and start working out, but I also started working long hours and 6 days a week last week at work.

 

So how do all of you fit in your workouts? Do anything to help give you energy?

welcome3.gif Sungoddess! My fiance and I are also determined to be healthier in 2010 :) Our wedding is our main motivation however we want to keep it up long after that. The first few weeks were the hardest for us but now it's something we need to do every day :) My weight has pretty much stayed the same lately but I definitely feel 'tighter' and smaller! I'm REALLY trying to get my arms tight! It's so hard! They're a lot better now than they were though :)
Good luck! We are here for you whevenver you need us :) Feel free to post whatever and whenever.

    • 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.
