Kathy I love this suit!  What fabric did you order?  It looks like it fits him perfectly.  And yes, my FI would totally do something like set up his back drop and model these.  LOL.  Thanks for the pic!

Brandy don't get discouraged!!  It sounds like you're losing weight the correct way and that by changing your lifestyle, it will stay off.  I've always thought that losing weight is about 90% diet.  I run about 15 miles a week when I'm not training for a race and get upwards of 40ish miles in when I have a marathon coming up.  No matter that I'm burning all of those calories running, I notice in my hips and abdomen if I eat poorly several days in a row.  If I just eat more clean for a few days, I can lean back out.  What I find most difficult is to find healthy choices to eat when I'm running around like crazy at the hospital.  I try to bring protein bars and other healthy choices but don't always succeed when that Mexican bar in the cafeteria calls my name...

 

Long story short (too late!), KEEP IT UP and you'll meet your goal.  You're bound to plateau a bit from time to time.  I don't worry a whole bunch about my overall weight, I just pay attention to how my clothes fit.  You should be quite proud of yourself for getting that many pounds off sensibly already:)

I ordered mine from this same etsy seller a week ago and am so excited to get mine!  She's doing them in a 2" wedge flip flop with a deep purple ribbon and rhinestone starfish.  Thanks for the tip Lady!

Thanks for the OOT bag suggestions!!  Now I just need to find where I can buy all this stuff for cheap!!  I've been looking online but to get wholesale prices you have to buy SO many!!  I guess I could hit up target or the dollar store?? 

 

I LOVE your idea for the quilt guestbook!!!  I was thinking about buying a polaroid camera and having people take pics and put them in a book where they can write a message.  Not sure if I'm def doing this though b/c the camera and films are kind of pricy.  I also saw something where they had a variety of shells and people wrote on the shell.  Then you can put them in a vase or around a picture frame.  Hmmm what to do???

 

I love that white suit with the blue shirt!!  My FI and his boys got light khaki suits.  I think I'm just going with white shirts and not sure about ties...who's all making their men wear ties???

 

Cute starfish flip flops!!!  I'm def wearing flip flops just not sure what kind yet!

 

As for weight loss....muscle def weighs MORE than fat.  I've played sports my whole life and according to the scale have always been overweight.  Don't worry about what the scale says, just go by your clothes.  I try to do cardio and weight lift.  Intervals are a really good way to drop some lbs too.  I'm good with the working out part but I'm HORRIBLE at keeping food out of my mouth.  What can I say I LOVE food haha!

Lisa - it is my sister. The last time was before Christmas and we could all tell it was just a fight. This time is for good... he's not allowed to break her heart more than once.

 

I've been doing Jillian Michaels 30 day shred for 2 days now and eff I'm sore! I go to the gym like twice, three time a week but what she can do to me in 20 min is amazing! I don't need to lose any weight, but I would like to tone up a bit, so I hope she can do that for me. :)

 

Mortgage broker will be over in 2 hours! EEP! I'm excited.

 

Oh, and ladies, I just wanted to remind you how awesome you all are and how tremendously supportive a group of strangers can be just amazes me. :) <3

Haha boys are so silly sometimes! Definitely entertaining! So we got the shirts from Macys back when it was the end of summer so everything was on clearance, we actually had to find 7 of them because the groomsmen are wearing them also but with white dress shorts. The brand is club room and it says vintage fit on the tag. I think i found it

btw for those who asked its the "linen suit" material (white) with satin lined in the pants...we did our own measurments but just beware the fabric does not stretch or give so just keep that in mind when you are doing measurements. I think it looks perfect on my FI but if he goes to bend over or hug someone he may rip it so he has to be careful! LOL

Afternoon....

BRandy (and anyone else) again yep everyone is right, in fact I was laying in bed last night after i signed off and thought I should have mentioned someting about dietas well. Portion control is a huge factor to weight loss.  Eating after 8 at night is a big no-no.  I lost 40 pounds after my baby from doing P90X and I now incoorporate Turbo Jam with it just to mix it  up.  1wk of P90X and the next week is Turbo Jam.  I stick to mostly a low carb (healthy carb) diet and try to keep as much organic food as possible.  This  works great for me.  I am NOT a dietician but I am pretty healthy and I know what works for myself.  As far as carbs go you can now even buy spaghetti that is orgainc brown rice spaghetti...it's super delicious and my 2 yr old loves it. Bread is another one that people tend  tofear but again sticking to a all grain bread is very good for you and full of fiber.  Lots of water is another key factor to especially with the amount you are working out alot.I always have water around me.  Finally, don't deprive yourself of deliciousfood either, there is alot of ways to cook using heathy alternatives....google isyour best friend.  And remember cheat days are always incredible at the end of the week but just don't overdo it..

Hope this helps...

Tris..We are trying to buy right now too....stress??!?!?!?  lol Just need to find that perfect place to call home!

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
