    I can't wait.  I'm going to go home tonight and get all my measurements.   Thanks for setting up this thread Shay.  We all need a little support every now and then, and getting healthy while doing it is always a bonus!

     

    Btw ladies, I just read this today, so whenever you go and try on your wedding dress, do not feel discouraged!  Wedding dresses run small, and as long as you look and feel good in your dress thats all that matters. 

     

    In the two months of fittings before most clients’ weddings at Kleinfeld Bridal in New York, seamstresses are kept busy taking in gowns. Brides-to-be say, “I don’t want the size 16, I want the 14 or the 12,’ â€ said Jennette Kruszka, Kleinfeld’s marketing director. (Note: wedding dresses run small, so a typical size 8 dress will be a size 10 or 12, a psychological shock for the young woman buying the gown. Kleinfeld resists brides who want smaller sizes, because taking a dress in is easier than letting it out.)

            Cool!!! Let's see how much weight we can actually lose before our weddings.  What have you been doing to lose the weight? I am proportioning and going to the gym.

              And your wedding is only a month after mine! I am struggling with a crazy work schedule. The big focus in portioning for me right now. I am not getting to the gym as much  as I would like, but I am trying to get there more. I take zumba once a week as a start, and try to make it a time or two besides that. But my gym pass expires at the end of the month, so I need to get my butt outside!

                    I am having the same problem with my schedule. I've been trying to walk more instead of driving and taking the elevator. But I been trying to got to the gym atleast 2/week. I love Zumba. I just purchased the new Zumba bundles... Can't wait to try it.

                      My biggest problem is I spend 2 hours every day commuting to work, so that cuts into my schedule so much. 

                      But with summer around the corner, though my gym pass expires, I will have a lot more time (I'm a teacher... summers off). I will then be walking everywhere all the time!

                      I think it is a great idea to make those changes. 

                      Let me know how the zumba bundles are!
