@perianjay you are very welcome! You've been such a great friend to me too and you're always there anytime I need anything, so it's the least I can do. If you want, we can hold each other accountable to do things. We can set weekly goals, like working out 3x a week and check in with each other to support (or nag) the other person to complete their weekly goals. What do you think?

@Wafflesmom @calgarybride2015  I am in!  We can all support each other :)

 

@perianjay I agree with everyone here - you are doing amazing in your planning.  I hope I can be as organized as you.  I've been slacking this summer as well, those cold drinks on a hot day are just too tempting!  Do the best you can in terms of your weight loss, and if you don't reach your final goal don't be too hard on yourself.  Chester will love you no matter what :)  I'm here for any support you need!  xo

I'll say a similar thing to you that I said to Sofi. You're in such good shape with your planning! You're so well organized I know it's all going to look fantastic! Try not to stress. Yes - I know that's so easy for me to say. But take a step back and think abut what you've already accomplished! Your list too has gotten a whole lot smaller than what it was before. If you can focus on that you can give yourself some much needed credit!

 

With the weight loss, I can totally relate! I wish I had some great words of wisdom. Well I do but I know with you young ladies it doesn't mean much. I used to be about a size 3. For years and years. Then I hit a certain age and weight all of a sudden became a huge issue. I have a form of spinal arthritis so exercise is a mixed bag for me. Damned if I do and damned if I don't (sorry about the language). it's highly recommended but painful as the devil when you do!!

 

I lost quite a bit of weight last year especially coming out of the hospital and I remember thinking "gee, if we ever do get to renew our vows weight won't be an issue". Yeah right. I've gained the 14 lbs back on that I lost last fall. Thankfully it has stabilized and I'm still down the first 11 that I lost earlier in the year but exercise is an even bigger issue now with breathing problems. I get on the scale and just sigh. I hate seeing you ladies upset about your weight. It's something that gets pushed at us so much. These images that we put on ourselves. I know everyone wants to be absolutely gorgeous on their wedding day. I'm on board with that. But when you're up to your eyeballs in planning, adding the stress about your weight just makes it more upsetting. There is a wonderful support network here which is great. But you're going to be gorgeous on your wedding day!! Just look at your engagement photos! They really look like something out of a magazine!! Just do your best. Nobody can expect more than that from you, and you shouldn't expect more than that from yourself. If you look like you did in your engagement photos on your wedding day, you're going to be one stunning bride!!!! (sorry the old lady is being a mom again!)


I said "yes" again to the love of my life at Grand Coral Beach Club, Playa del Carmen, Mexico on our 4th anniversary - October 20, 2015

@acw271011 haha I giggled at your comment about being the mom. You're too sweet. I really don't mind at all!

Thank you for such kind and encouraging words. It's funny because every time I feel like i'm in a downward spiral, I just come on here, vent a bit and you ladies lift me back up. It is always nice to have reassuring words and also hear that we all go through very similar things.I don't even know how I would have coped without this forum and all of the amazing support that i've received here. I feel like i've made so many great friends :)

@perianjay Thought of you and the workout buddy support convo in my 6am spin class this morning - was my motivation to increase the tension and keep going, then I looked down at my left hand and pushed even harder lol

Music

 

Has anyone else's music changed multiple times? I've had the hardest time sticking to a first dance song. It's bounced back and forth all over the place and I think we MAY have decided finally..

 

First Dance Beyonce - At Last (Etta James Cover) ...I'm a huge Beyonce lover so the thought of sharing my first dance with Chester to this song makes me happy. It's such a beautiful classic.

 

Father daughter dance:  Edwin McCain - Walk with you (this song is literally perfect)

Surprise Mother/Father/Daughter dance : Stevie Wonder - Isn't she lovely .. (I couldn't leave mom out and this is the song that played with I was born in the hospital)

 

Processional - Better Together - Jack Johnson  

Walking down the Aisle - Isreal K - Over the Rainbow

Recessional - This is a toss up for me.. I really wanted a fun upbeat song. At first we were going to go with One Republic - Good life, but then I heard a song the other day called Heaven - Alex Adair and I fell in love with the upbeat and island vibe it had. I thought it may be a really fun song for us to walk out to and it's pretty original. I also thought about Omi - Cheerleader, but now it's so overplayed!

 

Toast song - U2 - Beautiful Day or Coldplay - Paradise

 

Cake cutting - Ellie Goulding - Love me like you do
