2 months, 2 weeks, 2 days - Diet/Exercise advice?

Recommended Posts

So my wedding is in 2 months, 2 weeks and 2 days...And, let's just say that I've been a little lax on the diet and exercise plan that I had originally put into place in order to lose weight before the wedding. By a little lax, I mean that I haven't done much of anything - and that's a huge problem.

 

Are there any brides out there who waited until the last minute to start preparing themselves for their weddings using diet and exercise? What did you do and how successful were you? Does anyone have any advice?

 

I know, I know...I should've started sooner. =)

i am not big for crash diets but a few of my friends have done "The Fat Flush" by Ann Louise Gittleman (sp?) - just google "Fat Flush".

i watched the lbs melt off of them - it is REALLY restrictive and only good for short term stuff!

Good Luck!

I recommend some serious cardio or pilates and then accompany that with the weight watchers point system. make sure to drink all the required water... that should work.

Susan is our personal trainer and may be able to tell you something safe to do with fast results.

 

I did cardio and strength training like 5-6 days a week, for like 2 months leading up to the wedding. You still have some time - - don't freak yet, just get to work sista!!

I agree. Join weight watchers or find someone that has the books/point counter that you can use. It works like a charm!

Combine that with exercise. You don't need to kill yourself over it. Just walk a few miles a day, then move it up to a jog/run. Do lots of crunches, leg lifts, squats...all of which can be done in front of the tv if necessary.

My favorite is the leg throw...lay on your back and have your FH stand with his feet on both sides of your head. Hold the backs of his calves and lift your legs up towards him. Have him push your feet down towards the floor but don't let them touch! Bring them back up and repeat. He can even push them towards the sides to get your obliques. This works awesome on your abs, thighs, and lower back. Then switch and have him do it so you can get an arm workout wink.gif

Everyone has such good advice! Now my motivation should just be the fact that my wedding is so soon....Of course, I'm sitting here eating a huge plate of brownies, which isn't helping!

 

We really need to start going to the gym. REALLY need to start. =)

I've been trying to motivate myself since January and I'm now about 2 months away and have just decided that I have to be good from now until I get to mexico, sad.gif It really sucks, I'm so hungry right now, I could go for some of those brownies you're eating!

    • 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. 
    • 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.
