Weight Loss/Fitness Support for 2012 Brides!

Recommended Posts

I am yoyoing like crazy. Exams stressing me out and not having time to work out and eat healthy is driving me nuts. I need to lose it and maintain. And maintaining seems to be the hardest of all.

I wish I had found this thread earlier since we are almost 6 weeks out from the wedding (less than 6 weeks before we leave though!)

 

While I was working toward losing that ubiquitous "last 5 lbs", my main goal was to tone up what I'm working with!  My fiance and I decided to register for the Chicago Marathon last month so that's been a nice motivator in addition to the wedding.  We've been going to the gym regularly since the beginning of the year, and while I've lost maybe 2-3 lbs, I definitely feel better and healthier...which is more important, right?? :)

 

BTW, it frustrates me how much faster my fiance is able to build up endurance - I could be running more regularly than him but he can still run faster and longer!  Boo!

 

Happy exercising!

I totally know what you mean.  My FI and I are doing INSANITY and he just shapes up so much quicker, endurance and muscle wise.  We took a 2 week hiatus and are now back at it and his pants are already falling off of him :(  So unfair!!!  HA!!!

 

Good luck with the marathon!!!

Down 12 pounds in 7 weeks thanks to weight watchers!! In January we finished gutting and remodeling our new house....wedding planning, eating right, exercising and not drinking took a waaaaay back seat! I gained like 10 pounds just in that time! Signing up for a race always helps me...the nice weather and wedding on the horizon will hopefully amp up the weight loss!

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
