BDW Biggest Loser ~ Season 9!

Recommended Posts

Wow ladies, last week. So through this season, I have to confess I haven't been the most dedicated in terms of my weight loss goals and I've only lost about 4 (maybe 5 lbs by Friday) total all season. But you know what, it is better than staying the same or gaining weight. FI and I decided to get more serious about our weight lose and have started P90X, both the fitness and diet plans. It is only day 3 but we are really sticking with it. We are getting up and doing the workout at 6 am before we go to work and have been making the lunches the night before when we make dinner so that it is easy and convenient. So far I feel great. If we stick with it for the 90 days, I know I will lose that last 9-10 lbs in time for the wedding. So hopefully their is a BL 10. If so, I am in for sure.

 

So Jennypenny, I guess I have met this week's challenge as the P90X diet and exercise plan is definietly a new activity for me.

elefant.gif FINAL WEIGH-IN DAY!! elefant.gif

Come on ladies... please send me your stuff by Saturday at 12:00 PM EST so that I can tabulate our final results! You can still participate, even if you missed a few weeks (I have been keeping track).

Wow, I can't believe this day came so quickly! I must confess that I didn't do as well as I wanted either... but time is running out and I only have 7 months left. So I have to get serious now for sure!

I am in Quebec City at the moment and definitely doing unusual kinds of activity... walking up and down the hills here is crazy!

Renee, I took my final weigh in today which I will send to you and I can do a mirror pic if that works. J is away but I can get him to take a proper final pic on Sunday when he returns. I forgot to ask him yesterday before he left. Would that work?

I was freaking out because I couldn't find my phone or camera this morning and my FI is at work so I couldn't use his!

 

Thankfully I found my phone. It was on the charger where I had left it.

Well, I'm proud of the weight I lost, but I'm frustrated too because now my wedding dress is too big! It was a little tight before, but I guess 8 pounds was too much weight to lose because now I have to have it taken in!

Congrats everyone, you all did so amazing!! Jenny, wow your weight loss is unbelievable. Congratulations!

 

So in total this season I lost 4.6 lbs. I'd lost about 3 lbs before that so a total of almost 8 lbs. When I ordered my dress, I knew that it would have to be taken in and I'm okay with that, I will take it in around mid August because I still have 9 lbs to lose to reach my wedding goal weight. Well, when I ordered my dress I went out and purchased a low back bustier to make sure that I would have a bra that I could wear with the dress and that wasn't noticeable. I paid $100 for it and was okay with that because it actually worked perfect with the dress. Well, my dress came in and I went to try it on yesterday. The dress is too big, no big deal, I expected that. But now the bustier is too big too - both in the back and in the cup, I guess I lost most of my weight in the chest area. I am totally bummed because I have only had the bustier on for a total of about 5 minutes and have to go get a new one. I can't return it and I can't sell it because I took the tags off. Oh well, I guess on the bright side, things being too big is a good thing.

    • Peach looks better on tan skin. Red is a nice contrast against fair skin. 
    • How about installing a home web cam? And hire a house sitter to check up every week?
    • You can hire a graphic designer on Fiverr to create the wedding cards then just print them yourself. Another option so you can save money is to create the card how you want it on Canva and have them printed at a printing shop.
    • My wedding is coming soon, and I would like to know where I can find best wedding cards at affordable prices. I only find one store known as Lavenderpaperie.com where the cards are lovely and unique, But I want to know the other option name so that I can choose best wedding card. Please, if you have any suggestion on where to go, let me know. Thanks & Regards,

    • 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!
