    steph, don't get discouraged. you can only do what you can do. if a stroll is all you can do, then at least a stroll is better than sitting on the couch, eating. also, i'm not an exerciser, but i'm pretty sure that reps are more important than weight when it comes to trying to tone your arms.

    another thing, chicago was in between meeting your goal weight and now, and i have to say any weight gained from that was totally worth it. SO MUCH FUN! you are probably just still dehydrated and retaining water from that, lol. don't get down on yourself!

      Hey Ladies,
      I am new to this thread - wow I love it- finally I find ladies in the same 'boat' as me persay.....

      OK so I am getting married November 3rd in Cancun, I have been on a diet since last Ocotber - start weight was 259lbs currently down to 232 but I need the weight to move faster! I recently started a new diet am hoping to be under 200 by the time I order my dress in July.

      I had tried on a halter neck in Davids Bridal back in January and whilst I liked it, I have my mum flying into town in June from the UK to go dress shoping with me in June and I have recently seen a picture of an Alfred Angelo gown I have fallen in love with however it is moremermaid shapped and I don't think I have the figure for it but I truly think the gown in geogerous now only if I can shift some more weight so it looks nice.

      I am currently a size 24-26, I have recently started Transformations weightloss and I am going to the gym as much as I can.... however I recently tore my rotata cuff and therefore I cannot do any upper body work in the gym only in physical theraphy which is limited......

      The beautiful dress is off the shoulder - tight down to mid thigh then flares out....

      Sorry for my ramblings.......

      Thank you for having this forum. I am going to go through and look at all your beatiful pictures from your weddings and get some inspirations that even if I cannot make it to my goal, curvaciuos ladies still amke beautiful brides -

      Take care,

        I went to Kleinfeld's this past sunday to try on dresses...and i'm actually surprised at how I looked. I thought I would look like the marshmellow from Ghostbusters. But because I have a shape (Thank God and my mother) I didn't look so bad. And it helped that I choose to go with the mermaid style. But the only thing is I can't get into those size 10 samples. I've gotten down to a street size 14 but by the time I get to be a size 10 i'll be leaving to go on my trip. I'm afraid to order a dress and then go back to try it on. and I also don't want to spend alot for my dress.

          Erika- I had some issues with my veins and they need to do some procedures to remove the bad ones to prevent possibilities of blood clots or strokes etc. Not a huge deal, just not ideal timing! Wish I had figured this out months ago!

            Okay ladies, so we've passed the deadline for the Biggest Loser BDW Competition.

            I was too late so I'm in the non-competing category. To see all the participants, I believe it's on page 19. If you need someone to be accountable too, join this challenge! I need to lose 100lbs eventually and I need to start somewhere.

            I've never talked much about my weight loss attempts, mostly because every time I try to lose, I fail. I'm so tired of telling people "I'm going to do it", and then they keep asking how it's coming, and I realize I gave it up.

            Even now as I write, I'm hesitant on sending it out because this means that I have to actually follow through and I'm afraid of failing once again.

            If you're in the same boat and want to finally make that commitment, let me know! I'll call you and check in, and also report my stories as well!

            I don't know why, but I've never felt so scared before about doing this! I think it's just the fear of what people will think of me if I fail yet AGAIN for the 8th time in a row

              Kelly, it is definitely scary... I too have failed multiple times but FI & I decided when we get home that we are going to work hard to get in shape so hopefully I can get pregnant. I may look at the challenge. Good luck!

                I started with around 100 lbs to lose, now I have lost 28 so far and still have a lot to lose (around 70+) yet I get stuck and feel like weight is not coming off wuick enough - I am good on the weekdays in the office and we seem to eat out every weekend and it goes all wrong...... I am going to joing too and I would be happy to keep in touch for motivational support - Tori

                  hi ladies!

                  i have been on this site for months and just came across this fantastic thread!

                  i am definitely a curvacious girl, but am hoping to be a little less so for my wedding. you would think that an imminent wedding would keep me from eating all of the wrong things and sitting on the couch too much - but it hasn't!

                  i haven't tried on dresses yet. i am scared. i am worried i will be totally disgusted with how i look. i lost a lot of weight a few years ago (went from 218 to 175), but then i moved in with my FI, and gained 90lbs. NINETY POUNDS! i went all the way up to 265 and i am working my way back down (currently 245).

                  anyhow, when i look in the mirror, the person looking back at me is not the person i know, and not the person i feel like. so, i am wanting to get down to about 180 for my wedding. i have lots of work to do.

                  thanks for listening, and i am looking forward to chit chatting with you guys!

                      Spanx should be tight and kinda hard to get into, but not extremely tight. You should still be able to breath, sit, etc. If you can't maybe you need a bigger size. Personally I hate spanx because they just push my chub outside of the spanx and give me rolls in weird places.
