Losing the Weight...feels good!

Recommended Posts

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!

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.

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!

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?

    • 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. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
