Got up this morning and just as sudden as they appeared, the 4 lbs are gone again. What the hell was that? Could you imagine if that was my wedding day. I guess there is a reason people say only weigh yourself once a week. Thank goodness yesterday wasn't weigh in day.
Cindy, don't be discouraged. Your body can fluctuate several pounds during the course of one day. It all depends on when you last ate, when you last went to the bathroom, how much fluid your body is retaining currently, how hydrated you are.

So, I would recommend weighing yourself at the same time wearing the same thing (or lack thereof) every week. That will be the best representation of how you're really doing.

I hate to sound like a "poor sport" at work, but I can't even look at the food or smell it, and the moment I do - game over!

Hi Stacey! You don't sound at all like "poor sport". You are focus on something VERY important in your life, which is loosing weight and being healthy! so, CONGRATS to you for going home for lunch tomorrow rather than making a wrong choice.!!!!!


Today is has been very hard for me... I was doing ok this morning, but this afternoon I "had" to eat two pieces of chocolate.. I feel like such a looser.. I didn't need to eat them, but I did anyways... I feel like I failed already... horrible.

Well the coworker who put together the pizza and cake thing just came to me and said "Is there something wrong?". I was like no, i'm fine. She says "well you're not having pizza or cake tomorrow". I was replied with "Listen, I'm getting married on the beach in November, I dont need to say anything else" haha that was the end of story.

I hope I don't give in and have any.

You know what I do when I eat bad and Im feeling horrible. I go home and exercise it off.

Hey elifrigo, two pieces of chocolate won't kill you, but feeling like a loser might -- don't let the guilt get to you. Every moment is another opportunity to start over.

Kudos to you for resisting the temptation! I know that I would have to remove myself from the situation as well. And that reminds me of that FitBitch blog: FitBitch. It's pretty funny, if you haven't seen it. That girl is always dodging unhealthy coworkers and their junk food, lol.

I've had a run in with several co-workers over this!! I unfortunately had to put my foot down in a rather aggressive way and tell people to stop putting candy and pastries on my desk- AND I still get comments on what I eat at work....

I was feeling kind of tired today and the weather was so nice, I started thinking about skipping yoga. But then I thought NO! I have to go! So I gathered all my energy and dragged my butt to yoga. I got there 15min early but when I went to sign in, they said the class was FULL! This is the first time I have seen this happen... I feel so disappointed and bleh now. Oh well, maybe tomorrow.

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • 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.
