It's been a busy few days.  We are approaching our deadline for full payment of the trip this Friday!  We were so lucky to get a price drop.  Our guests are going to be saving $200!!  So the average is paying $1250 which is reasonable considering it's in June.

 

I have so many projects on the go but the one I am most proud of is my weight loss so far!  I have lost 10 lbs since last week...the weight loss slowed down this week but I totally expected that.  I lost about 2' off my waist and 1' off my bust which is totally fine by me.  1" off my hips!  yay!!

 

I am working on a template to make my sparkler tags.  We've decided to do our first dance surrounded by our guests lighting sparklers.  *praying for no rain*

 

We just finished up our Guest booking spreadsheet. It tracks the guest names, room types, arrival and departure dates.  I feel so much more organized.

 

I need to start working on the welcome kits.  I have put that off too long now.  So that's this weekend! :)

Wow how does one lose 10lbs in a week? On a good round for me that would take 4-6 weeks!!! Congrats.

Nice work on the price drop - that's awesome.

Everything is coming along great.

@veryvalentine 

 

10lbs in one week!! Please tell me your secret!! What are you doing?

 

$200 Price Drop too! It's all coming up roses for you this week!! That is so AWESOME!

 

I wanted to do sparklers...but I don't think my resort will allow them...I'm going to have to double check that....doing your first dance with sparklers would be such a pretty photo opt....just a thought...make sure there is something for your guests to light them with...

@calgarybride2015  @Meandhim

 

I've just been really determined.  I cut out carbs  and sugar.  I never felt hungry though.  Lots of proteins like chicken and tuna, and fruits to snack on.  Lots of lemon water, lots of lemon water.  I work out on my lunch hour and then I do step class or body pump at goodlife in the evenings.  I'm at a plateau right now but I'm just going to keep going because my body fat% is going down so that's a good sign of muscles! :)   It would be "hilarious" if my dress ends up being too big.  lol

 

We are excited about the price drop too!  It just means our guests will now have extra spending money!  So happy for them.

 

As for the sparklers, ya, we will have the bridal party equipped with lighters.  We will tell people ahead of time so that they know what to do and expect as well.  *praying for no rain*

I am so strict with my calories and I work out 3 times a week (not 2 times a day mind you) and I can't pull that off!!!! 

And I have lost over 100lbs!   MAN!!!!  give me your genes, I am jealous!

 

oh and lemon water is my favorite. My co-worker bought me this infuser water bottle, so I add a whole lemon to the bottom of the bottle and there is a filter. LOVE IT!

OMG  congrats 100 lbs!    I won't be losing another 10lbs this week.  I'll be lucky if lose 2 this week.  I'm mostly trying to focus on inches because that's what will ensure I fit into my dress :)

Woohoo, congrats on all the good news @veryvalentine! I'm so happy to hear about the weight loss and especially the inch loss. That's so exciting. Good for you for being so disciplined!

And I'm so happy to hear about $200 off. That's such a great price!
