          Samcalv1......We are getting married at a place called Zucchini's in Paphos, Cyprus

           

          Michelle.....Well done on the 1/2 pound, a loss is a loss after all and you seem to be doing great with losing the inches i haven't bothered to measure inches, suppose i should really

           

          I also had a weigh in yesterday i lost 2lb and recieved my half stone award i have got 6lb to lose to reach club 10 so sticking at it i have my first dress fitting in November so want to have reached it by then even if its just a pound a week :)

           

          As many of you ladies are aware i am a bride to be that has a hellish MIL who we haven't been talkin to since xmas 2009 and SIL, anyway FI made the decision to try and rectify things with both of them on Sunday for the benefit of the children as i suppose its them who lose out, my eldest is also missing his cousin (our niece) and keeps asking about her so it was getting quite difficult. When FI phoned her and they talked about things the first thing she replied was "Don't be asking me to babysit etc etc" which i thought was appalling as i can totally ensure we won't be asking her to do ANYTHING for us at any point!!! i would have thought she might have been grateful that FI has decided to give her a chance to see the children but clearly not! anyway to cut a long story short she called FI today asking him to go round and do a job for her to which i think is a god damn cheek they have only been talking-ish for 2 days and she was adament she won't be doing us any favours the woman totally gets on my nerves!!!!! and that is an understatement i have decided i will be keeping her at arms length from here on in and she will not be interferring in any of my wedding plans!

           

          SIL on the other hand sent FI a text yesterday saying basically that we only decided to talk to her again because of our wedding and that she wont be coming coz she has committed to other things to which we replied fair enough, i dont think she got the response she was expecting as she has been on today saying she will see what she can do etc with regards looking at coming with us (i really wanted my niece as a flower girl so secretly i am gutted if they don't come, my niece is only 5 and was so excited at the thought of being a bridesmaid) think SIL suddenly realised that we were not waiting on her response so we can book and sort things out as FI told her its already booked and nearly paid for and everything else regarding the wedding is in place and going ahead weather they are there or not!!!!

           

          Anyway since then all is quiet on the western front so will see what happens from here on in

            Thanx Vicki. Well done you on losing half a stone! That is great! Yes take your measurements cos some weeks you maybe losing inches rather than pounds. :o)

             

            With regard to the SIL it's good you have made her realise your life dont revolve around her and her plans. Maybe now she will be a bit more accommodating and think of her daughter and not herself.

             

            As for the MIL from Hell. Good for you for rising above and brushing it off. The only one that will get hurt if you let it is you. Dont let her wind you up and you have the right attitude not letting her get involved with the wedding plans. You dont need any drama in the run up especially as it's all going to plan.

             

            I can relate. I have a MIL from Hell. Who does my head in but i am trying to rise above it and definately keep her at arms length. Actually since she came round and had a go at me about MY wedding plans i avoid her at all costs. My plan now is to totally cut FI out of any dramas she causes as he cant say NO to mummy and it just ends up us having a row. So now i just try and deal with things on my own and hope she gets the message! She ruined our relationship so all she will get from me now is to be civil if and when i HAVE to see her.

             

            We can't change how ppl are so it's best to try and find a way of dealing with them instead. Sounds like you have it all under control. Good on you

              Well done girls on yr weight loss - I say whilst eating some toffees and wondering why I dont lose weight!  I have been doing a lot of excersie.  I lost 2.5 lb last week but dont think after my weekends antics I will have done anything this week!

               

              For the past 2 days I have come home from work to find 'wedding presents' ie; the stuff I have been buying online; today was an engraved cufflink box for FOG, turquoise chair sashes; and the ribbon for the wedding cake which is lovely we have had it personalised - just to add a little 'us' to the wedding cake as it is huge and v white!!
