Weight Loss support for 2011 brides!!

Recommended Posts

I just went to the extreme last week with a 3500-calories deficiency (1200 calories a day. Cardio and heavy weights 4 times). So hard ... But the scale finally showed a 1.5 lb weight loss. Now I only have to keep it up for another 3 months. Wish me luck :)

Hi Ladies,

 

103 days until my wedding.  I am sooo excited!!  I am working out at least 5 days a week and following the WW program.  I am excited to say that in 5 weeks I lost 9 lbs!!  This is great news for me because I do take meds that have contributed to this weight gain (along with self indulging during stress oops.gif).   I hope to lose another 15 before the wedding. 

 

Good luck to all of you ladies!!

Good Job ladies!!!!

 

But please remember the number on the scale doesn't mean anything.  It is how you look and feel.  I stayed the same weight for 4 months straight while I was competing but my body changed DRASTICALLY.  So please don't reply on what the scale says.  It does not take into account how much muscle you have compared to how much fat you have.  Just keep that in mind while you all are progressing. 

 

So...I start physical therapy today and I am excited.  I hope that means I can start wearing tennis shoes or something.  I have been wearing surgery boots for an entire month...so ugly LOL!!  I promised myself I wouldn't go back to the gym until I start therapy since I am very bad at "taking it easy".  So I plan to go in tomorrow and warm up on the arm bike (so cheesy but at least it will make me sweat a bit) and then I'll start with some upper body stuff this week.  Hopefully I can slowly progress to non weight bearing lower body exercises soon.  I love full squats and lunges.  Best exercise for the lower body!!

Good for you!! And frankly, we should be tired and sore after our workouts!! Although that'll taper off eventually...if you've never weight lifted before then you will definitely be sore. I'm not gonna lie - the first time I ever did barbell squats and deadlifts, I could hardly walk or bend my legs 2 days after, LOL. I know that probably sounds extreme but it probably sounds worse than it actually was. But even now I still feel a little tight after doing it and that's basically my marker for knowing whether or not I got some usefulness from it. Keep at it! :)

Oh yeah, and I hope you didn't do both the upper body AND lower body workouts together...you should alternate!! One on one day, and then the other the next day!

A lot of other countries do day-month-year, so 11 April 2011.  My company is international so they would make us write that date as 11Apr11 so there would be no confusion between countries.

 

 

 

Awwwwwwwww, thanks for the clarification..makes sense..... :)

    • 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
