Weight Loss support for 2011 brides!!

Recommended Posts

I am so pleased.  I had my final wedding dress fitting yesterday and i have finally lost some c.m's from my thighs and i don't have to have the dress let out anymore WOO HOO!!  Just have to keep it up as i have 10 days in l.a and Vegas before the wedding and i am bound to put on weight.  My waist has gone down so much that the dress has to be taken in up the top!

 

I leave in 2 weeks today and am still 5 pounds over my top weight that i wanted to be ahhhh am going to be really strict  over the next fortnight, only problem is it is my bday next friday and we are going out for dinner friday and sat night!!

I do upper/lower splits so I am working my legs, but, abs twice a week...hasn't hurt me. Give it a try with adding in another day of lower exercises...start easier, you don't want injuries from overuse, and just up the intensity after a week or so :)

 

Oh and all my candles smell liked baked goods too!! I make handmade soy candles in my home so when I do a big batch, the whole house smells like cupcakes, lemon meringue pie, chocolate chip cookies, etc. lol YUM!!!

 

 

 

thanks for the advice,,,,yeah i dont wanna overwork my body, my FI tells me not to do that........i still am such a big fan of "biggest loser" tho and dont understand how they work out 6 hours a day and NOT use all muscles everyday?????

Yay! Good for you! Keep up the hard work! cheer2.gif

 

However, I also agree with Nemmerz - ENJOY your birthday!! Ok, you don't have to go totally nuts but have some birthday cake and a few drinks...it's not going to have much of an effect if you're doing well the rest of the time. Ya gotta live, too ;)

I am getting married in November and joined weight watchers 3 weeks ago - I have lost every week and am now 4 1/2 lbs lighter - only 24lb's to go :-)

Come on girls we can do it - we only get married once x

Despite the torrential down pour, I checked out a local gym today and worked out hardcore. Thinking of doing that as much as possible this week, BD shoot's on Friday. I'm still not exactly where I want to be, but I figure an extra push this week won't hurt since I leave in four and a half weeks!

Just a note...I am doing Jillian Michaels DVDs at home. Its not so much pounds lost as it is inches lost and toning/tightening achieved. I also do her 6-week abs routine and Yoga Meltdown in the evenings. I have a gym membership, yet lately I find that Jillian is all I need!! :-)Anyone else have any experience with Jillian Michaels?

Down 23 lb! 15 to go! You ladies should hit the beach (south beach diet) with me!! With cutting back on carbs and sweets and working out 2-4 days a week I'm seeing fantastic results! I did kick boxing class on Saturday so much fun! You should try it if your gym offers classes.

    • Paradisus is actually notorious for doing this and we have to fight with them all the time to get the rates lowered. Are you using a TA to assist you?
    • Moon palace cancun offers Sikh priest. Janina Mendoza in weddings was very nice and able to help me.. suggest to contact her.
    • First of all congrats!!! Costa Rica is a magical place for a wedding  Are you working with a travel agency for your rooms? If not, I would highly encourage you to do so because an agent can often help you get in contact with the wedding department to get that conversation/communication going. I would suggest working with Wright Travel Agency, the official agency of this forum. These agents are specialist in destination weddings and have access to great promotions and group perks in addition to being able to secure the best rates for your group. Best of all the agency does not charge any fees to use their service, but it will take a load off your plate not having to worry about arrangements for travel for you and your guests. Shoot an email over to info@wrighttravelagency.com and one of the team members will get back to you and get the ball rolling for your group and the wedding department! Best wishes!!!
