A little thing I like to call "Operation Wedding Dress" (aka, my dress is too small... but it won't be soon!)

Okay, I missed my June weigh-in with Weight Watchers, and went yesterday (had to pay regardless since I missed June). I was only up 2.6 lbs, which given the # of restaurant meals and crap I've been eating is actually not too bad (I was away on 3 different work trips in June). I was expecting it to be a bit more catastrophic. I'm back on track now and am ready to shed those 2.6 lbs within the next week or two! 

 

My FI and I are registered for a half ironman triathlon this weekend. We signed up back in the fall being overly optimistic about the shape we'd be in. Since we didn't quite meet our training goals, fortunately for us the race director is allowing us to combine our two entries into a two-person relay team, so we're going to do the race as a team (2km swim, 90km cycle, 21.1.km run). I'm going to do a 10 km run this evening, and go for a swim tomorrow morning before work just to make sure I'm ready!

 

I just ordered a beautiful beaded sash off etsy for my dress. I have no idea how it will look or even if I'll end up using it or not. I'm just totally ready to start crossing things off our to-do list, we have just over 5 months to go!

It was absolutely the most gorgeous place I've been to. We LOVED it....the pictures do the place no justice seriously. The place emerald lake was just breath taking and we went to Carcross and saw sled dogs and got to play with the puppies. So much fun!

Not bad, I gained the same with vacation and am already losing it since I'm been eating good this week. Good luck this weekend!

I'll definitely have to take measurements, thanks! I was just looking to order a garter and realized I needed to measure for that too. Maybe I'll wait a little bit in case I stick with the DVD

I measured it & where the garter sits is 20", so I'm motivated for it to shrink!  I just did my 3rd day & I must say, it feels like it's getting just a tad bit easier.  How long did you do the 1st workout before moving to the 2nd?  I still can't do more than a few push ups so I feel like i'll be on the 1st one forever!!

I actually did ten days for each one straight (I was pretty determined)/ The push ups I couldn't do either, a year later I've gotten better at them lol. When I completed her 30day shred I took two days off and than did her Ripped in 30 DVD, same type of concept but much harder workouts. It helped me lose some of the fat. Than I did Supreme 90, bought it at big lots for $10 and it was great, lost two pant sizes from it....but that's almost all weight lifting and it is 90 days. It came with a schedule. Than I did her killer buns and thighs, banish fat boost met, and no more trouble zones and after all that moved on to Insanity and completed that. I haven't really done any at home stuff lately. Been taking kickboxing at the gym but I have gone down 20lbs and from a size 13 to now a size 4

So far I am at 6 lbs lost and 6 inches since the beginning of May.  I feel like its just not coming off fast enough but maybe that's because i am focusing on the scale numbers vs. the tape measure numbers.  I said yes to the dress yesterday.  I love it and decided to order the size I had on (I know, risky move). its only one size smaller than what I am normally.  It fit and laced up with no gaps in the corset, it was just a bit snug in the mid section and hips.  Wish me luck! I'll be on here a lot to keep motivated!
