    So I started the beginning of the year, and I've lost 16 lbs as of today!
    I told my FI, you know what feels even better!?
    The fact that I have done it in a healthy way and it hasn't been agony.
    I didn't have to starve myself or anything drastic. My wedding isn't until Dec so I was able to take my time and do it healthy. I work out at least 4 times a week, but usually it ends up being 5-6 times. I have become obsessed with Spin Classes! I swear my hips have shrunk dramatically and I can fit into two sizes smaller in my jeans from these classes!
    I watch what I eat, but by no means, am I obsessed with it. If I want a cocktail or glass of wine, I try not to drink multiple days in a row. and I eat every few hours each day.
    I also swear by Oatmeal in the morning! even if you don't like it, just suck it up and eat it! :) It makes you feel full and it's healthy!
    I just think there is no secret to getting fit for your wedding. It you have motivation, you will do it!

    Hope this motivates others out there, because it motivates me!
    Congrats to all the brides out there!

      That is AWESOME Jill!!! Good for you!!!
      Keep up the excellent work!

      When you say oatmeal...do you mean the instant stuff?? Or do you buy it & make it yourself?? I have to do instant, but I don't find it fills me...

        Wow 16 pounds? That's great! I agree with how you're going about it... I'm doing the same thing except I'm losing motivation. I've only lost 10 pounds since the end of last year and I'm stuck. I guess I'm sort of at the toning stage and need to change up my routine. I've never tried a spin class before so I think I'll start with that!

          Congrats! Great work and thanks for sharing your experience :)
          The other night I came up with this idea of putting the measuring tape around me with the original measurements (before I started dropping pounds) to see how far I have come. I though it was the coolest thing to actually "see" the difference, it really made me feel so proud and gave me that motivation I needed again. It really reminded me where I was and where I was going.

                  Thanks for sharing. I need motivation. It' s great that you started the weight loss early so you are not stressing like I am. I am a big spin fan as well and I have now joined a barre calss that has helped sculpt muscles. Keep up your hard work.

                    That's great, congrats! And it sounds like you are doing it the healthy way, so that's always a plus since it tends to be more permanent.

                    But I was also wondering about the oatmeal. I feel like I ate nothing at all when I eat oatmeal, so do you do something special to it, or is it a special kind?
