I tried the insanity videos...I actually did the DVD three times...definitely intense, I HATED them more than anything...I knew I wasn't going to exercise when at work I was dreading going home to those tapes,ugh..gave them to my sister in law said good luck! Glad they are working for you as everyone is different, we all need to find our exercise/heakthy eating niche! good work!

7 months to go and I still HATE working out and still LOVE food....bad combination LOL I have 15 pounds (10 minimum) to lose by October. I have Jillian DVD's, yoga DVD's, have tried the gym and hate that too LOL i admit I am lazy. I work long days and get home and want to relax. I have tried everything to motivate myself and I suck at it hahahaha I have been eating better but i am not counting calories just more aware of portion sizes and what i am putting in my mouth

 

I need to find my solution....hoping the nicer weather and taking walks will be a good start!

Have you tried working out in the am?  I know it's difficult to get up early, but you'll enjoy your day more if you're not dreading going home and having to work out. Since you'll have just woken up, you won't have much time to psych yourself out of it.  Just an idea, good luck!

Just got the call that my dress came in..nothing like a little extra motavation... Crappy thing is I've gained 2 lbs..but I'm blaming it on "that time of the month". But I'm still feeling good and back into a size 8...Would love to lose another 7 lbs and I only have 80 days..

I'm full of excuses LOL

I will have to give that a try though...i'm not a morning person but maybe if i roll out of bed half hour earlier and walk the dogs it might work :)

I'm totally getting frustrated!  I'm not losing the weight that I need to, I've been working out like crazy and eating well.   I only have 4 weeks left and need to lose 5-10lbs I know it doesn't seem like much but if I'm going to be in my swimsuit for 2 weeks I need to be looking slim otherwise I know ...I won't be having a good time.  I need to figure something out!

Please be careful. i know it can be frustrating, but losing that much weight in only 4 weeks is not healthy. If you are working out and eating healthy, try looking at other areas of your life that may be affecting you. Stress?  Lack of Sleep?

Good luck and remember those 5 lbs. are not really going to matter in the big scheme of things. You will still make a goregous bride!

I feel exactly the same as you! I would be fine if all I had to do was get in a dress for a day but the swimsuit part is whats getting me! Doctor told me 2lbs a week is still healthy, weightloss, goodluck!

I actually think 5-10 lbs in 4 weeks is definitely within a health weight loss range...1 - 2 lbs a week is considered healthy. Of course, if you're already within a healthy weight range for your age and height, it's going to be harder. You may already be doing this but if not and since it's temporary and you only have a few lbs to lose, try going low carb and high (LEAN) protein. Keep all your carbs to oats, All Bran, and veggies/fruit (sweet potatoes are ok, too). Be very careful with your dairy intake, make sure it's skim/fat-free. A lot of people are horrified when I tell them to try eating this way but 1) it works and 2) this is actually a very all-natural way to eat and forces you to eliminate all of the processed crap that we all eat constantly without even realizing it. Goodluck!

Make sure you are not voer exercising!  I was only losing less than a pound a week and i was getting so frustrated i became really sick last fri and haven't worked out since, it is now thursday in Australia!! I went to the gym this a.m and had my weigh and measure no work out as till too sick! I have dropped 7 cms over all from my body and have dropped 1 kilo!! I am so happy, sometimes if we exercise too much our bodies go into starvation mode because they dont know when theya re going to get a break! I got told to take a break every third day. Good luck.

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
