@@yycbride2016 Make sure you are fueling your body! You don't want to get worn down with so little time left. 

 

After my 2.5 lbs the week before last, I didn't lose anything last week. Not surprising. I've been slacking. Jeff is away on business this week so he won't be here to be a bad influence on me (he often has potato chips in the house which is a major weakness for me) and I can eat whatever healthy stuff I want without having to worry about him (he's kinda picky). Hopefully I will make some good progress.

 

I posted in my planning thread that I tried on a bunch of dresses in my closet and they fit again! I'm really happy about that, since they haven't fit well since at least last spring (every lump & bump would show). I even tried them on at the end of the day and they are still fine. YAY!

@@vancouverpetunia.... I did much better with my eating and exercising today but...I'm now sick :(

 

Update:

I did pretty good this week. Added in a few extra cardio workouts to help cut some fat. I did have a potluck at work for a colleagues wedding, I didn't eat great but I watched the amount I ate. Of course with my soy intolerance I felt like garbage the next day but still kept on tract and did a double workout! I felt pretty off last night after work with a sore throat so I skipped my workout and went to bed early. This morning: full blown cold :( the day before my bridal shower. Looks like I'll be popping cold meds like candy. I did step on the scale though! I'm down another 1.2lbs! Since August I've lost 9.7!! I've pretty much hit my goal of 10lbs but I still want another 3-4lbs! Probably won't happen in 2 weeks but I'll do what I can! How did you ladies do??

@@yycbride2016 Congrats on hitting your goal! That is awesome!  :D When do you leave? You are soooo close! I hope you are feeling better by now. 

 

I've lost another pound - 17 down and 3 to go. Crazy. I wore a dress to work this week that I hadn't worn in a couple of years (people thought it was new) and I felt and looked great. Got tons of compliments. Also Jeff has been telling me that I'm looking good, that my butt is smaller LOL and that he's proud of my hard work. Awwwhh shucks  :wub:

 

Now I just have to keep it up. We have so much going on in the next few weeks... tonight is dinner at my cousin's and staying over night at their place, next weekend is my bachelorette party (and my best friend will be here from out of town for the weekend - so we will be out on the town, for sure), the following weekend we're going to a big wine festival, then we have our legal wedding the weekend after that which will definitely involve eating & drinking, I have my shower coming up, etc, etc. Sorry for the big laundry list! I guess my plan is to keep exercising and eat well whenever I am not doing all of these things!

Update: last week was a train wreck for me. I was sick all week and couldn't work out. I hate way too many carbs and then was terrified of stepping on the scale. I'm happy to say I only gained 0.2lbs! Clearly I've revved up my metabolism so one week off wasn't too bad. I'm back at it feeling strong and healthier now. My goal is to try and lose 1lb this week as its my final week before the wedding! It will be tough since I have so ma y appointments and my parents will be around but I'm determined!! Have to look beach ready!!

@@yycbride2016 I saw on MFP that you lost 0.8 lbs ?!? So you hit your goal? That's awesome. Congrats. When do you leave - must be this weekend?

 

Wish me luck for the next week, ladies. I have my bachelorette party Saturday which will involve a lot of food and drink, plus my MOH is visiting from out of town and we already have dinner plans for tonight and brunch plans for tomorrow.  :wacko: Likely no workouts this weekend, either. 

 

Then next week, I have a work event going on where I will be out 3 of 5 nights, plus likely eating on the go for 3 of 5 days. I should be able to get to the gym at least a few days, but probably not as much as usual. And then next Saturday we're going to a wine festival! 

 

Oh boy. And I'm up a pound from last week already. Oh well, what can you do?  :blink: Hope you have more successful weeks ahead of you!

@@vancouverpetunia yes!!! I officially lost 10.3lbs!!! So happy. I'm sure I will destroy that progress over the next week but oh well haha. We are leaving tomorrow morning!!

Good luck! You can handle this, but remember to enjoy yourself too. You only get to do all this once so make the most of it.

    • Hundreds of years before, the basic jewellery were made out of seashells and bone, trees and animal skin. In the ancient times, the Egyptian jewellery first came into existence. Egyptian culture inhabited technology, gemstones, and precious metals early in comparison to other places. They were inspired by the culture of royalty and aristocracy which led to thinking noble like having a deep appreciation for luxury. This made them create impactful jewellery and leading trends. Copper was the first metal that came into existence through which we as humans got so many jewellery items.  However, the major focus on jewellery came when they discovered gold. This allowed the Egyptian to rule as the first jewellery maker. The ancient Egyptians valued adornment and were worn by both men and women.  Material and metals: The plethora of material which was used in the making of this Egyptian jewellery was basically gold and silver. Egyptian has mostly attracted towards gold and the availability of silver was less in Egypt as compared to any other place. The colour variation was due to the mixing of elements such as alloys like copper, iron, silver into gold.  Charm jewellery: It was then also an interesting concept to have charms in necklaces, bracelets and other jewellery items. It’s just they were made up of stones and precious or semi-precious jewellery. In this picture above the necklace is adorned with precious stones in different charms shapes. Gem and stones: The more royal pieces of Egyptian jewellery were adorned with the precious jewellery items. The gemstones were semi-precious stones, precious stones are other various gems. The most prized stone were lapis lazuli, rock crystal, and pearls. Emeralds were also found in these jewellery pieces. These were made from ground quartz and then molded into expensive gemstones. They are also used as charm jewellery when molded or carved in different shapes.
    • Congratulations! Where you are you getting married? 
    • It’s my wedding five months from now and we badly need ideas because everyone’s mind is not working right now and I, as the bride, cannot even think of what I really want to have on my wedding day. I want something simple yet unique. Something that suits for Colombian women and bride. Can you help me out with this? Thanks! I will really appreciate your comments!
