Weight Loss/Fitness Support for 2012 Brides!

Recommended Posts

Yay!!!! I'm very excited to have found this thread!!! I have been dieting and exercising for a year now after having had my son (Sept. 2009). I had gained so much weight and was about 30lbs over weight prepreggo. Ouch :( It has been hard work, but I seriously believe that if I can do it... anyone can. I was so lazy and had the worst sweet tooth prior to getting pregnant. I had to take it day by day and slowly make life changes. Doing things all at once never helped me... I always got overwhelmed or sick of it and would quit. I started doing Tony Horton's 10 Minute Trainer, I started out doing one 10 minute session a day and then gradually added more so I was doing 3 sessions a day, 5 times a week. I started keeping a diary of what I was eating... everything... right down to the hand full of m&ms. I found keeping the diary made me think twice about eating something unhealthy, just in case my FI or family members saw it :) I do believe starting out slowly and gradually increasing my workouts has made all the difference for me. To date I have lost 51 lbs. My goals now are to tone up and KEEP IT OFF... so scared to gain it back in the next year before the wedding sad.gif  I really want to look good in a bikini! Hoping to keep each other motivated!!! Keep it up 2012 brides...

Thanks, girl! I'm really happy with my progress and I'm not craving them surprisingly enough. Little craving here or there, but I just use my e-cig and it goes away (I even puff a little at my desk at work sometimes!!). I tried to quit in March 2009 also, but I was back smoking by the end of April 2009. I'm glad one of us made it back then! But I'm here with you now!

 

I've tried multiple times to quit (patches, gum, medicine, hypnosis) - NOTHING worked for me. I have a highly addictive personality (thanks, Dad). The e-cig is my life saver. FI likes it too since I'm not a royal bitch like every other time I tried to quit embarrassed.gif

 

I was feeling a little weak the other day and I wanted some coffee from the BP. So I made FI go in the gas station with me because I wasn't sure if I could make it through checking out without buying a pack. I know its pathetic, but he is my knight in shining armor LOL

 

I have a little ticker on another forum that shows that in the past two weeks, I've saved $81 and avoided about 270 cigs. Its insane when I look at it that way and it's a huge motivator!! I have so much extra money from every paycheck to play with or to use on the wedding! :-)

 

Thanks for the support, I'm keeping on.

 

Anyway, enough outta me - back to the fitness chat!

Hey ladies,

 

First day of my power90 (precussor to p90x) was yesterday.  I feel awesome!  And very excited to do it again today.  I had to pause twice for a few second but it was all good.  I think back to my college days and these exercises were a breeze....so this is my motivation to get back to my line name of "brick house"  ;-)

Congrats on the pending wedding. Congrats on taking charge of your body, mind and health.  You may want to read up on the hCG Diet. Some people are losing from 0.5-1 lb a day.  There are 23 day and 40 day protocols. It doesn't require you to workout, however, I feel it spends up the process.  You can find great deals on ebay.com.  Best of luck on your big day.

Kya,

 

I will say just with the 1 day that this program is definitely not a 90 day program for someone in semi good condition.  Maybe like 30-45 and then I'll hop into p90x. I'll definitely keep you posted.. as I'm looking forward to taking my measurements again and seeing the results.  But for now it's good feeling pain in my stomach and thighs...

That's good to hear, I'll be finishing the first 28 days of Hip Hop Abs on Friday and am very eager to see if I'll have the results I'm hoping for. But definitely want something that will be more challenging to keep up motivation and inches off. I think I'm going to give P90 a try. I'm totally a beachbody fan... I'm also interested in Turbo Jam :P I like these at home videos... no one can watch 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.
    • 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?
