Any suggestions? I have seen that some of the girls on here have lost stacks of lbs!!

ALison
Yes, PLEASE send some motivation my way too! The FI and I just inquired for help from a personal trainer. We are going to see how much he charges. I LOVE BIGGEST LOSER - so I'm hoping this trainer is like "BOB"... we need to get our butts motivated and we have no excuse not to work out. We do work long hours but....

A) We have no kids or pets to tie us down
B) We have a gym membership (our company pays 100%)
C) We have 6pm-11pm open every night but we choose to watch T.V.
Ummmmm... can you say LAZY!!!!!!!!

Auggghhhhh!!!! I also want to lose 15 pounds by February! HELP!!!!

So now I have a MAJOR test in less than an hour.
Why girls? Why? Why must you all be so fun to talk to on here? It really cuts into my productivty!! Of course coming on here feels like I get to chat with close friends so thats awesome!
I'll let you all know how the test goes. 75% of people who take it fail thier first time... gulp!
Is this for your "BAR" exam? I thought I remember you saying you were going to law school?

Good Luck Girl!!!

Hi Ladies,

I am home it's just after 8pm... Finished dinner at FMIL's nice dinner,i am still in a state of shock. First of all FI told me she called him this week at work to chat about the wedding. She was feeling that I was cutting corners with cost and she understands I am still paying off my son's schooling and trying to get my business going. She offered my FI money towards our wedding. Which he politely declined and said we're fine. Which we totally are and would never accept her help. Love her dearly however we're both over 40 and yeah if we don't have our crap together at this point we shouldn't be getting married.

so we're there for dinner and she brings this up again and I say thanks and we have it all under control. I am by not means cutting corners and i am not spending a ton of money on things that are not important to me.

Anyway she leaves the room and comes back with this huge red folder thingy and gives it to me. Holy Flippin Crap!!!! I am looking at the cover and it has a lady in a mink coat on it. I am looking totally baffled, so is FI, she then says to me " I want to buy you a mink coat for a wedding gift from me. I am speechless "yup me, not a word can i find.

So I open this folder and it is about custom made coats and they start at $6000. First i am not sure how I feel about a fur coat and second not something I would ever think about owning.

So here I am stunned to no end, speechless and overwhelmed!!!! I finally got out of my mouth "I don't know what to say". I am very grateful that she cares that much about me and would think to buy something so expensive for me as a wedding gift. BUT I don't know how I feel about it.... Where the hell would I wear it and would I wear it?

She asked me to call her this week she would like for me to have it or be fitted for it before she goes away the beginning of December.

I am totally shocked!!!!! I feel like crap because I thought she invited us for dinner to complain about the wedding... What would you gals say? I am really not sure how I am feeling.

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
