Wow, some really good tips... I go to the gym 4 times a week for 30-60mins, I generally do cardio for 30 mins, then a combination of resistance machines, kettlebells and hula hoops for the other 30 mins, this way I get a full body workout. I also just did a half marathon training programme with a friend, it was pretty intense, but I can feel the difference, not just weight loss/inches but my fitness levels are much better. I have also adopted a mainly vegan diet, which wasn't a huge change for me and my fi as we were veggie before that.

I'm in Canada and I started going to GoodLife in February. It wasn't totally just to loose weight/look better for the wedding, but it isn't hurting! I do cardio and weights at least 5 times a week. The biggest change I have seen is in my arms and shoulders, which is nice as I'm wearing a strapless dress.


I'm more worried about being in a bathing suit in front of friends and family than what I will look like in my dress!

Insanity is incredibly good for weight loss and tone. I will be diving back into Insanity, resistance training, and hot yoga to not only shape my body for a sheath backless dress, but to withstand the heat and play beach sports with my children for hours on end leading up to the event!


More importantly, I will have a clean eating regimen without any fasting, diets, or bride weight loss gimmiks as there is sure to be some little eyes watching as they fantasize about their  own "wedding day" and I want to send the right message!

    These tips are awesome.  I've recently started doing the Turbo Fire dvd with Chalene from Beachbody and I love it.  I especially like the HIIT workouts.  I also been doing the green smoothies and I have so much more energy.  In addition to the dvds, I jog, use the kettlebell, do squats, sit-up, push-ups, etc......Trying to lose 20lbs, down 4, 16lbs to go.

    I am joining Weight Watchers on Wednesday. I am hoping to lose 20-25 pounds in 5-6 months. (before my dress gets in). I know people that have joined and it was successful for them. I don't exercise a whole lot. The extent of the exercise I like doing is walking in the evenings.


    Have any of you ladies been on Weight Watchers?

    I'm trying to run 2-3 days a week (up to 2.5 miles straight no stopping!) and doing Crossfit 2x a week.  I did 1 month of T25 (hurt my knees) and the first 30 days of Chalean Extreme/Turbofire hybrid which I'm taking a break while I get acclimated to Crossfit.

    Well I have some time before our wedding but I've already started my weight loss journey. I officially started the beginning of this month but I started intermittently in end of April. So let's say since May I've lost 15 lbs. I'm basically just eating right - no junk food, soda. Lots of fruits and veggies. Counting calories helps me stay on track. I have an app for my iPhone that's amazing called myfitnesspal. I can scan foods or search for them. I can also add exercise into it! I try to work out as often as I can, it's been probably 1-2x/week right now because I'm still on night shift. When I switch to day shift next month it will be much easier to work out more often. I weigh myself weekly to help me stay motivated. Seeing the number go down keeps me on track :) And also picturing how I want to look on the beach is a huge motivator as well!

    I'm training for a half marathon in October. Our wedding is September 28th so I'll have to keep my training plan while I'm there. I'm hoping it will help me lose the 20 I need gone by wedding. Need to lose 10 before I even shop for dress 😁. Doing fitnesspal on my phone as well.
