    Every 5 pounds I gain he's like " babe I swear I'm gonna get super supportive" as he is spooning cereal into his mouth at midnight. I know I know, he didn't make me gain weight I did it myself , but when I was single I didn't cook much. Made some boring chix and broccoli or had a lean cuisine standing at my counter. I love to cook and NOW I have an audience. We are Caribbean so rice, rice, rice.



    Started spinning again, slowly but surely. My arse is on fire tho. Lolol

    I have to lose 10 lbs b/c I sooooo want to do a boudior photo shoot. My fi is also skinny as all hell. I won't say i'm that bad but I def need to get my stomach in shape before this wedding!

      Girls always get the short end of the stick in that department! Men seem to keep their bodies easily and lose weight easily while we have to work REALLY hard.  I'm not sure how old you girls are (I'm 31) but around 30 it gets much harder, people say it gets worse at 40, if that's the case I'm very scared!

       

      Men don't help the cause either when they want us to cook for them, have dessert, drink beers with them, etc.

       

      Starting to spin again is a great start, better than eating bon bons on your couch, but it definitely is a shock to the bum at first.  We'll all support each other to get our best bodies before our big day!

      I'm right in this boat.....and I'm short so every pound shows. I'm 30 and it is getting harder. I'm down to 20lbs lost and my FI has been on board with me for the last year with eating right etc and working out. So thank god for that one

        65 invites went out to families. But I doubt "Fulana and her 10 kids are making the trip" LMFAO THAT WAS SO WRONG!

        U wanna hear wrong ? I'm telling parents that although their children are welcome to come on vacation and stay at the resort. No kiddies under 16 can come to the reception. :eek: The restaurant is off property and only holds 100 ppl. So "Dona Fulana " will have to leave her kids at the resort or home. That's gonna go over really well. Lol

          Okay - Seriously if I post my Welcome Bags.... don't judge me - it's long and probably not complete - I have way toooooooo much time to keep adding stuff :(

           

          To make it even worse.. (I think I have mentioned before that I am sending little packages ever 3 months up to two weeks before departure plus a couple of things while in St. Lucia) 

           

          This is my plan. . . 

           

          Things I'm Sending to each couple

           

          Jul '13 - Save the Dates

          Oct '13 - Invitations

          Apr '14 - Passport Reminders (with passport covers and luggage tags)

          Jul '14 - St. Lucia Info Package (hoping to find some brochures as well as well as a list of good to know things I have found in researching St. Lucia)

          Oct '14 - Pre-Departure Gifts (I can put a list together if anyone would like - it's not too long)

            Oh gosh! I'm hoping none of them come besides my RB and FG lol. My ceremony spot only hold 55 people. On the pier...some people will be forced to watch from the beach if there are more b/c I have no desire to change that location.

              I'm 34 so I feel u. I'm gonna be honest. Bon bons are not the problem. Lol I get home from work after a crap day of dealing with whiny passengers , their kids, the pilots, my crazy coworkers, delays, all I want to do is down a bottle of wine. Lol. They say a glass is good for you but I like big glasses. LmAo Now with this wedding stress (where the hell is all this money going to come from) I might move on to scotch

                  Rayn, how many guests are you having? I wish I could do all of this but it's not in the budget. I thought of doing something for the BP but some of them have been pretty crappy but my mom consoles me and says "if you want it done right...do it yourself" LOL

                    20 pounds that's great!!! You should be proud!!! I lost about 25 a few years ago, have put 4 back on since getting engaged. I want to lose that again plus maybe a few extra before the wedding, def doable!
