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.

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
