      erika, love the pics and the dress and shoes, and i especially heart that WE are your favorite ladies to shop with! :)

      finzup, very good advice overall ... we are all so quick to be negative about ourselves and put ourselves down! small (daily) positive thoughts are key in fixing our self-esteem and learning to love ourselves. (i'm 37 too and have been all over the map weight-wise as well). the most important thing is to love yourself enough to consider yourself WORTH getting healthier! we all DESERVE to be happy and if we can't make ourselves see that then i guess we need to come to this thread and have the girls yell it at us, lol!

          Just wanted to share some hopefully exciting news. 2001 I went on anti-seizure medication for what the doctor called "abnormal brain patterns" lol sounds hilarious. These aren't epileptic seizures or anything, I just passed out 2 times in 3 years.

          Anyway, been on them since May 2001, By August, I had put on 21 pounds, by September I was diagnosed with depression. Before I started the pills I was 155 at age 21. Now today at 29, I'm 268 (cringing as I type that). I haven't told anyone that number.

          I saw a different doctor, and he said that it is okay if I go off the pills. He also believes that by going off of them, I will lose weight and my depression will get better. I would then be able to go off my anti- depressants. I'm am praying so hard that I can get back to normal.

          Anyone else know of anyone who has had a similar experience? It has been so long, that I forget what it was like to be normal

          Michael and Phil Steingard are located in Ontario, but travel to Punta Cana quite often during the year. There is a good chance they will be down already during your wedding week, so this will cut travel costs

              Kelly - I don't know anyone who's had that experience, but that's great that you'll be able to stop taking the meds, and hopefully that will help you with your weight loss as well :) And you have a little bit of time before your wedding, so hopefully this will help you feel more like yourself as well - definitely wishing good things for you :)

                Hey ladies. It's been a while since I've3 checkedc in with everyone. I was out all weekend celebrating my birthday with my family and getting into trouble :)! I have good news to report....hopped on the scale and am 6 pounds down! Not much, but it is one heck of a start! I'm loving the cardiac diet, it's really kicking my metabolism back up, and I feel so much better on a daily basis ow than I did before. I also think that my newly found excercise regimen is actually helping me resist my urge to chainsmoke? Hmm....LOVE IT!
                Going to give the CYWT diet again....probably within the next week. Just want to stabilize my exercise habits before I throw another major change in lifestyle my way..we'll see how everything goes!
                There is no better gift that can be given than the gift of ones self.

                  kelly i used to take pills for depression a almost 3 yrs ago i put on a lot of weight and a doctor took me off of the meds, he told me to start exercising cause when i exercise my brain produces some chemicals that make me feel better, i been hitting the gym in a regular basis for the last 2 years and i went from a size 22 to a 12 which is my size right now... hope this can help little bit

What's the name of the store (if you don't mind sharing)? I'm guessing it's probably just a independent store, but it would be great if it was a chain :)
                    Here is the link to the bridal store.
