Thanks, Kim! I have front & side pix that also show progress but I hate my tummy, always have, so not keen to post. The back photo was the most surprising though. I guess because I can't see my back? Whereas I could tell my pants were fitting better, etc.

 

You've done so well this fall! Do your best to stay on track and every little bit helps. Believe me, I'm not eating as I should at every meal, but I am making an effort at every meal where I have the control over what I eat. If I have a bad lunch because I was at a work event, I still have a good dinner. Except, of course, last Friday when I was hungover from my work Xmas party lol. That day involved pizza and a full chocolate bar.

I know how you feel with not liking those views :) I was thinking too - for both of us - the little gains can be the weights too. Yes I know it's probably the food haha but this was the first time I did weights in over a month and I noticed a large blip. I couldn't walk for 4 days haha

 

Today I re commit myself. I was up to head to the class and I couldn't find my keys. I'm so frustrated. Well the search continues as I kinda need them lol but I will commit to doing a work out video at home.

 

We got this! Have a good week

And ps you are so right about having control over the meals we can. I usually have a blip and then figure I should blow the whole day. I'm awful for that but it's clear how easy I can gain weight.

Hope you found your keys! How annoying... Yes, the gains could definitely be muscle. In fact, in this program that I'm in, they tell you not to weigh yourself, because there is a lot of weight training. It's all about measurements and the photos. Let's go with muscle  ;)

@@vancouverpetunia wow, your photos are impressive! Doesn't it feel good to see the fruits of your labour. It's completely encouraging to see that all the hard work, determination and will power does produce results. Thank you for sharing, you've actually motivated me to produce results of my own! By the way, what was the program?

 

As for me, I've been doing do well with no snacks at night. I've decided to brush my teeth after dinner and it totally helps lol. I've been making my workouts though with the Christmas concerts, dinners and get togethers, they're completely throwing off my schedule. I missed bootcamp today for my boss' going away party. I couldn't miss that so I opted for a brisk walk with my dog. Better than nothing I suppose. I will be doing the rest of my workout regime (pilates x2 and bootcamp) so I'm still gonna work my butt off.

@@Wafflesmom Sounds like you are doing so well! Keep it up. It's so tough at this time of year, I know. The program is called Healthy Role Models. It is run by a couple from Nanaimo (trainer types), so a lot of participants are from Vancouver Island, but since it's online, there are participants from all over the world. PM me if you want more info.

@@vancouverpetunia thanks, means a lot coming from you :)

 

So I spoke to my bootcamp instructor this week and we spoke about my goals in the lead up to the wedding. I told her that I didn't really have a weight loss goal in mind since body weight can fluctuate so much. Rather, I to,d her I wanted to tone my body, especially my stomach area. She said that I was doing well with my training and we'd focus more on food. Since we're being realistic, we'll focus on a diet of lean meats and cutting out sugars and bad carbs starting January. With the holidays, she knows it's tough. It doesn't mean I can eat everything in sight but I will start getting stricter starting Jan 1. After all, after that date, I'll only have 3 weeks left...woohoo

 

And I've lost 1.5 lbs already! It's crazy how cutting out snacking can do a body good!

Today was weigh in for me! I was excited and nervous. I know when you start a new workout program your muscles get sore and your body retains more water to speed recovery. And I've been really sore with my new program so I was hesitant yet I knew I'd been pretty good with my nutrition. I'm happy to report I lost 1.7lbs!!! Super happy! That puts my total at 7.3 since August. I'm starting to feel like I'm in the groove again, although that means my wedding planning has gone out the window. I will post an update to my thread this weekend though! I need to get back on track! 2 months to go!

@@vancouverpetunia and @@calgarybride2015 snacking is my kryptonite, why must chips and cookies be so bad for you but taste so good!?!?

 

And I hope our eye twitches go away soon! Hopefully my week off from work during the holidays will cure what ails me.

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
