BDW Biggest Loser Competition ~ Season 11 FINAL RESULTS POSTED!!! (#420)

Recommended Posts

I sent mine on Wednesday.  I sent last weeks late (on Saturday), but this weeks on time.  I'll resend now.  It was my lowest weight in a loooong time, so I want that shit recorded!  Even if it's just for future reference when we do a BL again.

No worries regarding the weekly results, I don't really care if it's recorded there, but your spreadsheet has the most information on my fluctuations for the last few years and last week was my lowest in awhile, so as long as that's updated, that's perfect.

I'm finally losing what I feel like is real weight. It has been all about tracking my food. That and working out more than 2x a week. Still not to pre-wedding weight, but getting closer!

Oh Easter week was certainly rough for me!

 

I completely and totally forgot to send my weigh in for this week- don't even know how it is Wednesday already! Sorry ladies!

 

I do make a fairly big decision this morning.

 

The gym I go to is coming up for renewal this month. While I absolutely love the boxing classes, I am finding I am making maybe twice a month. Then I have major guilt over not going. And it is because the class isn't until 6, and I get off work at 4:30. My intention was to get to the gym, do cardio for an hour and then do the class. I did that twice maybe.

 

We weren't eating dinner until 7:30, 8:00, and then going to bed. So all I was doing was being a fat ass, and gaining weight, being completely counter productive with chowing down so late at night.

 

Long story short- I am deciding not to bother renewing my membership at the gym. I learned enough boxing moves to be able to shadow box on my own, plus my gloves give you a work out routine to use without a bag, which is awesome.

 

My plan is to change into work out gear at work, go home, do the squat challenge, and then go for a brisk walk/ jog for 30-40 minutes. On the days were there is a break for squats, I will do the shadow boxing instead.

 

With FI's new job being downtown Toronto and me looking for a new job down in that area, it is completely pointless for me to renew a membership out here in Mississauga, when our intention is to move downtown in a few months. On top of it just being a waste of money for me, when I can do stuff for free, especially since it is warming up now.

 

I lost 20 pounds 5 years ago over the course of 3 months, just by simply walking for 30 minutes every day. Changed up my eating habits a bit, but not drastically. I ate ice cream at least once a week and went out for dinner twice a week, so similar to what we are currently doing. (HA, not the ice cream, but we don't cook on the weekends).

 

What do you guys think? Am I crazy? Am I just fooling myself?

I'm with you, last week (this weeks weigh in) is NOT pretty.  I'm up 3.5 lbs since last week which was my lowest in awhile.  BOOOOOO!  I'm not really sure what went wrong, like there isn't ONE thing that I did differently.  I drank wine a few nights, but not extremely.  Like 1 glass maybe two nights and then on Easter I had a few glasses.  I even only had apple crisp for dessert on Easter and nothing else and I've been eating healthy while at work.  I don't know how weight gain works, but I'm wondering if this jump is from when I went a little crazy when I had my period two weeks ago.

 

Either way, Matt and I discussed it and he's been stagnant for a few weeks and up until this week I had been losing each week, so we're going to try to get back more to the cleanse diet.  We've veered off slightly, like our morning drinks are usually fruit instead of veggies and we're eating less salads and more rice. 

 

I wanted to lose 5 lbs before our pics on Sunday and instead I'm up 3.5, so I'm annoyed at myself.  Then Xavi's birthday party is a month away and I want to feel good about myself!  I need to find the time to do the 30 day shred again.

Oh I got all wrapped up in my reply that I forgot to reply to you Jenny.  I don't think you are fooling yourself IF you've done something like that before and know that you can do it.  Working out at home is great, if you actually do it.  I've done it before, but not recently.  It's my new goal as well. Where I suck is leaving the house to work out.  Like I say everyday I'm going to start walking, but there is no time, or it's too cold, or soon it will be too hot.  I'm a home body and quite possibly would be a hermit if I was allowed.

    • How many people in your group?  
    • We chose to have our wedding at Fiesta so our review is broken down into categories. We have visited multiple Mexican vacation spots to include playa del carmen, cabo san lucas, Cozumel, Puerto Vallarta. We traveled with a group of 35, mostly adults. We had such a great experience and we will definitely go back to Fiesta American Condesa Cancun!!!!    Resort- this was a good size resort, I liked that It was not too big. We didn’t see any of the shows they offer but we did enjoy the pool every day. It was awesome that they had a live dj playing music and fun games to keep us entertained. The bars were all in good locations, we spent a lot of time at the main lobby bar because it stayed open late. They had bands, silent disco, game competitions, etc. every night all very fun and lively!   Room- We stayed in a junior sweet which had ocean view and was absolutely beautiful. Very spacious bathroom, we had a second bathroom in the living room in addition to a breakfast area.    Food- the buffet had a smaller selection of food than we usually see at all-inclusive resorts however the quality of the food was much better!! The ceviche bar outside had amazing fish or shrimp tacos and provides a nice view of the ocean.    Staff- The cleaning staff was great, our room was tidy and organized every day. The bar staff was very friendly and attentive. Yes, we did tip and did so often to ensure they kept coming around. After our wedding, it seemed all staff members knew us by name everywhere we went. We were treated so kindly everywhere!  There were two staff members who played a special role in our vacation, Blanca and Magda. They both were delightful and treated us just like family. Yes, they were awesome to my ENTIRE group.    Venue- We chose to have our ceremony and cocktail hour on the lower pool garden followed by reception on the lower pool deck. Beautiful views for both areas!!! Unfortunately, it rained so we ended up in the ballroom.    Wedding package- We chose the Corazon package and I love what the hotel had to offer. For my personal choice, it was between this package and one at dreams resort but I ultimately decided on this one after reviews from other brides and pictures I looked at. If you are on the fence about a destination wedding I say DO IT!! You can’t beat all inclusive, it really eliminates half the stress of planning a wedding. We had cocktail hour with margaritas, a 3 course dinner, a beautiful cake, and of course open bar. We did not opt for any of the add ons. I did bring my own décor such as table runners, Chinese lanterns, center pieces, bubbles, fans, etc.  The floral arrangements and my boquet were beautiful!!! Exactly as I imagined. My cake was also very pretty and looked just like the one I sent to my coordinator from pinterest.    Wedding coordinator- My wedding coordinator, Violeta Cambranes, was truly amazing!! We communicated mostly through email and a few calls right before wedding time. She was very timely and thorough with our plans. We met with her the day before the wedding. She showed us around and we did our food tasting as well as my trial for hair/make up. She is so personable and really felt like one of my friends throughout this process which is nice to have when you’re leaving such an important day in someone’s hands. I sent her pictures of what I envisioned (wedding colors, floral arrangements, table décor, etc.) and she made it all come to life. Because we ended up having to hold our wedding instead, Violeta was able to make accommodations for us which we are truly grateful for!! She was attentive the entire week we were there and we had no bumps in the road!    Rehearsal Dinner- we had dinner for about 15 people in the Mexican restaurant. The food was great and of course the staff was attentive. I do wish we had the opportunity to choose our own meal but still enjoyed it none the less.    Spa- we received a couples massage and it was perfect. Steam room, sauna, hot tub, and massage. So relaxing!! We also received a second massage on our shoulders one of the days we were there. A spa therapist came to our cabana while we relaxed and drank mimosas.    Date- we got married first week of October. I knew it was one of the rainiest months of the year but I was willing to take the change because it was offseason. I’m so glad that I did!! The rooms and the flights were extremely inexpensive. Also, the resort was not packed at all! There was a comfortable amount of people compared to when we usually travel in the summer. The weather was not too hot but it did rain 3/7 days we were there. Mosquitos were also still in full force so would recommend bug spray.   Photographer- my photographer, Mike Cantarall,  overall was great! He captured all the great moments of the wedding. The highlight video was truly perfect!! I will say it did take extremely long to obtain my pictures (7 weeks when expected turn-around time was supposed to be 7 days). I wish we could have had a discussion prior to wedding day. I don’t love a lot of the poses and he did ask me if there was anything specific I wanted  (while on the beach taking pictures) but in the moment I couldn’t think of exactly what I wanted. In hind sight, I would have asked for more close up, more poses as bride and groom, and for my dress to not be scrunched up. With that being said, I was still pleased with the turn-out of my photos.    DJ- our DJ was AudioCancun. Very pricey!!! But we did not have an option for vendor. He did a great job! He truly recognized the vibe of the group and played the best music to keep the party going! We did give him some specific songs which he played them all.    Make-up- My make up and hair was done by Anastacio Brides. I loved my look!! I showed them pictures from pinterest and it came out exactly how I wanted. After different areas of my face were done, my make-up artist would show me in the mirror to see if it was on track with what I wanted. They were so nice and I enjoyed their company while getting ready for my big day.   Travel- to and from hotel we used Happy Shuttle. They have great rates and I trusted them based on the reviews I read. I bought a garment back and carried my dress in my hands the entire way there and back! (yes even through all the flights). We ended up taking 4 suitscases between the two of us and also had some of our family members pack things for us.    Boat- Our group took a triple decker boat, Dancer Cruise, to Isla Mujeres. It was a full day of fun, accommodating both kids and adults. We snorkeled, we ate lunch, and we danced! The slide and diving board were pretty fun! The staff was lively and the boat was not very packed so that was nice. They did give us a group rate when I emailed them directly.   
    • Congratulations to Wedding Planners and Families of Bride and Groom. Cheapfaremart, an Orlando based Online Travel Agency offers Cheap Group Flights for Wedding Group also.
    • Thanks! I would love to get quotes from a TA but as I said I have a hard time finding a specialized one in Canada. I hope someone can point me to the right direction. 
    • The use of TA is instrumental in booking a destination wedding for several reasons: Namely, TAs have special rates and promos they can offer you, including perks of complimentary rooms and upgrades. Wright Travel actually has a Bride & Groom Fly Free Promo, which gives couples up to $1,000 cash back. These are perks you can take advantage of by working with a TA. Also, most agencies also do not charge any service fee, so you are essentially having the expertise and convenience of a travel agent without paying a dime. Experienced agents will also have valuable insight into the best property to host your wedding, and if they are familiar with your resort, they can also offer you and your guests tips on how to make your stay even better. Good TAs will also have close connections wiht the wedding department, essentially benefiting you throughout the planning process. Securing a room block is also important to ensure your resort does not run out of rooms and also to secure a group rate. Lastly, having a travel agent handle you and your guests travel plans is vital so that you don't have to deal with it. Anything can happen when it comes to travel and if you don't have an agent, your guests will turn to you for help. As a former destination wedding bride, I did not work with a TA and I regretted it. Having to answer a million questions from guests on where to stay, where to book, where to go, drove me nuts. When it comes down to the final stretch of the wedding, it was the last thing I wanted to do when I already had a million things on my plate wedding wise.  Here's a more in depth article regarding the benefits of using a TA.  https://www.bestdestinationwedding.com/wedding-tips/c/planning/10-reasons-why-you-should-use-wright-travel-agency-for-your-destination-wedding-r2439/
