Weight Loss support for 2011 brides!!

Recommended Posts

Ahh, I really want to eat a bite size twix that is sitting on my desk right now!!  Need to resist temptation.  I ate my 100 cal bag of popcorn hoping it would fill me up.  I've done so good the past few weeks!!  Gotta keep it up.

TLG, you should get the twix...because everything else you are going to snack on is not going to satisfy you.  Get it and then jump back on the bandwagon of eating clean.

I've done many ridiculous diets in the past (namely the Dr. Bernstein Diet and Atkins) and the thing I like about WW is that I do not have to cut out any foods. I can eat whatever I want, BUT am accountable for what I eat. Yesterday a co-worker brought in lunch for me as a thank-you for a favour I did for her, and it was Lamb Korma and rice (my favourite Indian food!). I ate it, and enjoyed it, but suffered for the rest of the day because I had used so many of my daily points!

 

The other thing I really like is that you ARE NOT ALLOWED to set your long term goal from the strat. They make you hit 5% and 10% weight loss before you can set your long term goal. It's nice to look forward to small goals, like a 5 pound, 10 pound, 5%, 10% weight loss. It is overwhelming to think I need to lose about 50 pounds to be in a healthy weight range for my height (I'm 5'10, so my weight should be between 139-172).

 

I'm trying not to thing of this in terms of "oh no my engagement party is in 3 weeks" or "I want to be this size by my bridal shower" or "my wedding is 6 months away" and just live it instead. I want to make this a lifestyle choice, so that a year from now, I'm able to pick up and take a holiday and not be worried about wearing a bathing suit!

 

Ok, that's my rant for now. My meetings are on Wednesdays for WW, so I'll post my weight on Thursday mornings for those that want to follow along. I'm excited to see those numbers on the scale go down!

THE SECRET: Lots of cardio workouts and running! This really did the trick. I had to work myself to it but I started with 1 mile a week, then worked to 2miles a week. by June I was at 4-5miles a week. I made sure I worked up a good sweat. That feeling of exhaustion is neccessary. Comfortable workouts will tone you, but will only lose you a few pounds. I also began to drink loads of water from working out. Diets are good, but definitely lots of fat burning exercises are needed! I recently joined Crossfit and it has lost me 3 pounds in 1 week. Its high intense mixed workouts. I am continuing and loving the results!!!
 

As for weight watchers, there frozen meals are definitely helpful. I didn't use this for my wedding weight loss, but they have helped me in the past. So good idea!

    • My best friend is getting married with his long-term girlfriend next month. As a best friend, I want to give them the best present they would ever receive on their special day. I am planning to buy them plane tickets and book them for a one week trip abroad. However, I am torn between Ukraine ski trip and a tour to Lima, Peru. My best friend loves skiing and his future wife is a chef, so I presume she would want to experience a Peruvian taste. Now, I am confused. Which is which? I would appreciate it if you guys will leave a comment to help me out with this. Suggesting a way better idea which will accommodate the two activities for the soon-to-be wedded couple is a big help too. Thanks!    
    • Hello all!! I'm getting married next week. Every arrangement has been done by my sister for my special day. When I joined in an MNC I was troubled with severe headaches and as per my colleague's instruction, I took an appointment in a nearby eye clinic. And after an eye examination in Toronto, the eye specialist diagnosed hypermetropia in me. And the doctor prescribed eyeglasses for me. The doctor suggested me to wear eyeglasses during the working time. But I used to wear it sometimes not every day. Then I was troubled with severe eye strain and headache and mom was scolding me to wear eyeglasses every day. I thought of saying goodbye to eyeglasses forever. I'm planning for a Lasik eye surgery soon before my marriage. I don't know whether I'm eligible for Lasik eye surgery. I'm tensed about its recovery time and its complications. Can someone help me by sharing your views?  
    • In the 2017 bridal fashion week, many styles of wedding dresses were gradually popular. From serious bling to regal capes and fun and flirty short numbers, ByCouturier've got all the hottest wedding dress trends you need to know. Allover Sparkle
      Over-the-top sequins, tonal beading and metallic embellishments turned the Bridal Fashion Week runways into a glittery affair. Perfect for evening nuptials under the stars, this trend is daring but sophisticated. Pro tip: If you're rocking a gown with lots of sparkle, keep your accessories minimal and let your glitzy frock do all the talking.  Bold Ball Gowns
      If you're looking to make a dramatic entrance, a classic ball gown is for you—and we saw plenty of them. Take a cue from long, lace sleeves, or get glam with an embellished strapless bodice. No matter the details, this voluminous style is sure to turn heads.  Captivating Capes
      Not into veils? A full-length bridal cape or shorter capelet is the perfect alternative: It still adds movement to your gown, but feels fashion forward. Plus, this trend is an easy way to pull off a mid-wedding outfit change. Wear a cape or capelet for a more formal look during your ceremony, then whisk it away to hit the dance floor at your reception. Short, Sassy Dresses
      Whether you show off your legs (and a killer pair of heels) in an embellished mini or opt for a more conservative midi-length number, a wedding dress with a flirty hemline is a chic way to mix it up. Not willing to give up your dream ball gown? Change into a shorter frock to spice up your reception or after-party.  Plunging Necklines
      The deep V-neckline is a must-try for two reasons: It flatters your upper body (even if you're busty!) and elongates your frame. A plunging V with scalloped lace is ultra-feminine, while a sleek V plays up the inherently sexy vibe of a curve-skimming silhouette. Just make sure you have fashion tape handy the day of to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. 
      Skinny Straps
      We love this trend for two reasons: A gown with barely there straps has all of the sex appeal of a strapless neckline, plus added support. We call that a bridal fashion win. 
    • Hello all, 
      I am here to get some suggestions on the best places to go on a honeymoon. I am getting married by the end of next month. 
      I was thinking of Bali or Maldives. But just wanted to know other beautiful and romantic places. The wedding banquet hall is a gift from our parents. The hall they have booked for us is one of the best banquet halls in Vaughan I’ve ever seen... Other arrangements like the videographer, photographer, wedding dress, reception dress are all finalized. The next week we have the pre-wedding shoot. Also, I'll start sending the invitations the same week. So, it is going to be hectic and I don't have time to rest or look for some nice places. So, if anyone here could suggest some places would be a great help. 
      Let me know your suggestions. 
      Thanks in advance!
