@@deecol congrats, you and Col are doing awesome. 1lb is nothing!

 

@@cruisebride2016 5lbs? Wow, that's amazing, good job!! Keep the momentum going, especially now that you know how much you can accomplish when you're motivated.

 

@@calgarybride2015 Der says the same thing! LOL

 

My update:

 

So after my indulgences during the holidays, I've been so motivated and was really good at keeping with my normal workout routine (2x pilates and 2x bootcamp). I've also been keeping with meal plans and clean eating. After gaining weight during the holidays, I made my bootcamp instructor take my measurements. I'm happy to report that I actually lost .5 inches around my abs (whew) and gained .5 inches of muscles in each arm! Music to my ears.

 

Despite getting my measurements, I was really worried about my final dress fitting which was last Saturday. Well my worries are over because my dress fit :)

 

The clean eating did take a break over the weekend since I had a dinner with my bridal party and then Der and I had our joint wedding shower. Let's just say the food and booze were plentiful.

 

Now with 11 days until our wedding, I've gone back to clean eating and have resumed my workouts. I unfortunately ended up missing my bootcamp yesterday (had to take my poor pup to the vet) but I made it to pilates today. I still have 2 more workouts booked this week, any little bit counts! Wish me luck ladies

@@deecol Soooo close. You'll be under pre-holiday weight in no time :)

 

@@cruisebride2016 Say what? I need to get on that program! Congrats!

 

@@Wafflesmom So glad you are doing well and that the dress fit. Phew! 

 

I'm having a bit of a rough week. I had a molar break on Sunday, dentist today to have part of the tooth removed and then a root canal tomorrow. Ugh. And I have to get a crown eventually but my insurance doesn't cover it - $1000! Crap. Anyhow... I still went snowshoeing on Sunday and hit the gym extra hard today (skipped yesterday as I also had blisters on my heels from snowshoeing sigh!). I've been only able to eat soft/liquid food, so at least my cals are down LOL.

 

Will hit the gym tomorrow and then not sure when I will make it back. Thursday night have a work party (out late/too much booze, so unlikely to work out in the morning). Friday night or Saturday we go to Whistler. Dinner out Saturday night. Off on Monday cause it's my birthday. Probably will sleep in. And then dinner out on Monday. Yikes! Oh well, I was able to do my belt up two extra notches yesterday :)

@@Wafflesmom well done on the loss and gain in your measurements! That's fantastic! I'm glad your dress fit! I had no doubts it would. You've been so diligent! I hope your pup is okay! Feel better soon waffles! Good luck with the last few workouts this week! You're doing great!

 

@@vancouverpetunia I'm sorry to hear about your dental misfortunes :( that's so unfortunate. You will be back at it in no time. At least losing weight is 80% diet and only 20% exercise! So keep eating clean! You're doing great! Have a wonderful birthday as well! Enjoy it and spoil yourself!

hahaha @@calgarybride2015 too funny!

 

@@vancouverpetunia I am so sorry to hear about your tooth!  You have a lot coming up that can definitely de-rail you, but you have been so good, I don't think it will impact your progress too much.  Just make sure you're eating healthy and being active when you can!

 
@@cruisebride2016 Wow!  5 lbs is awesome - good for you!  It is so much harder when you're partner is sitting there eating delicious naughty food and you're trying to be good.  But I think you got this!!!
 
@@Wafflesmom Yay!  Congrats on the loss and gains in the right places!  You're so awesome, even with all your celebrations lately!  Poor Waffles, hope she feels better soon!
 
I'm going to take some measurements this weekend!  Thanks for motivating me ladies  :)

HI ladies!

I just stumbled across this board tonight.  This website has been a godsend!  

So, I'm going to join in on all this!  I really need to get my ass back in shape!  I want to feel comfortable in my clothes again!  My overall goal is like 50 lbs.  Its amazing where it hides!  

I signed up for spin classes at a new gym and I have my first class Saturday and I'm heading to a weight watchers meeting with a friend tomorrow.  She lost 60ish lbs in the past and still goes for motivation, so she is going to be my moral support tomorrow!  

I did spin and MFP religiously for 6 weeks last year and lost 15 lbs and then met my now fiance!  Lots of drinks and dinners out and the weight is back, so I'm ready to get my butt back in shape!

If anyone is on MFP, my user name is vanessajfelice, so feel free to add me!

Hi @@vanessajfelice!  Welcome to the thread!  So nice to have another lady on here for support and motivation!  You have such a great plan set up and now we're going to hold you to it so you're sure to succeed!

 

My update

I've been hitting the gym hard, clean eating, spinning etc and can notice that I'm toning.  However, I got on my scale and actually said I was gaining!  (I know the numbers don't mean much but I still check).  I got on my digital scale first thing this morning with no clothing on and had gained 2 lbs back... then I drank a glass of water and went to the gym for spin. I weighed myself on the manual gym scale with my running shoes and workout clothes on and was 5 lbs less than this morning... which brings me lower than my pre-December weight and back on track!  I'm feeling leaner and healthier and loving this feeling - definitely going to keep this up!

 

I plan to take my measurements this weekend and continue meal prepping, clean eating and smashing the gym.  I want to look amazing at my shower in 3 weeks.

 

Hope you all have a great weekend!!!  xo

So, I joined weight watchers today.  I had a friend who convinced me to go to a meeting and this new program they are doing seems to be pushing people towards proteins and away from sugars/bad things which is EXACTLY what I need.  

Starting a new place tomorrow for spin classes- can't wait to get back to it!  

Have a great weekend everyone!

You girls are all so good at keeping on track. I'm struggling. The plan was to do AM works out and I can honestly say that has not happened once lol It's more a schedule glitch rather than laziness though. I am happy to report that I have been making it to the gym 3-4 nights a week after work and going to hockey every Friday night. The workouts haven't been my best but I figure going for a little bit is better than not going at all. My diet has been okay but there is always room for improvement. My coke zero addiction has also at an all time high. I wish I could trick myself into drinking water.

 

Keep up the hard work ladies!

    • The most recent post I found for Azul Fives brides is here -- although it hasn't been updated much:    You can also find a Cancun-Riviera Maya FB group hosted by this forum here, that will have various info you might find helpful! https://www.facebook.com/groups/CancunRMBrides/ Since you are considering Azul Fives for your wedding, I also encourage you to check out this promotion because it could save you a good amount of money on your wedding -- the only requirement is that you use Wright Travel, which is the official travel agency of the BDW forum! But their services are free, so it's a total bonus and will be a huge help as you plan your wedding celebration Hope that helps!!!  
    • Can’t seem to find the forum for Azul Fives with the last year? If someone could post the link that would be great!  I am just starting to loosely plan my wedding and this resort is on my top list. Thanks!
    • Hi there I’ve been engaged for a few months now and we beginning to talk about our wedding. We are 33 and 34 years old, We think we want it to be in Mexico or DR. We expect about 50 guests including children. We don’t want to get married or have our reception on the beach. My Fiancé is a chef so we also would like good food! We would also like to keep the cost under $1800 per guest flying from Nova Scotia, Canada.  Any suggestions as to how or where to start the planning process? Should we use a travel agent?  Any experienced brides that can suggest a resort ? Thank you! amanda   
    • Hi! I'm from the US (but I've been to the UK 6x- my finance says i'm not allowed to move there! lol) Many resort lines don't offer something like the dress rehearsal, which I think is crazy! It's such a smart idea!  Having been to Mexico so much, I find it so much more comfortable- Yes there are dangers but I don't find it any worse than Philly or NY. It is a country that gets SO MUCH money from the service industry- it literally benefits no one to mess with tourists. Your tip money at the bar is feeding someones family. Not that the DR is any different in that it relies on tourist $, but the vibe is just totally different.  In the DR, they were really very serious about us not leaving the resorts (we did- I don't believe in staying on resorts lol). Once off, we realized why. Now, full disclosure, we went right after the 2010 earthquake, so this was a) some time ago and b) right after a natural disaster. Once we left we just felt immediately uncomfortable. (We even saw a man approaching a goat with  a large gun and the Taxi driver seemed nervous and sped away- poor goat!) I find in Mexico everyone is SO respectful- in the DR I had guys make lewd comments (both from those off the resort, and more disturbingly from workers at the resort), grabbing at me, just generally super disrespectful and not at all comforting. My dad had to kick the room service guy out of our room bc he refused to leave when we asked!  This could have been completely isolated to the staff at our specific resort, but it definitely happened off resort as well. A la Anthony Bourdain, I have always considered myself a traveller, not a tourist, so I have zero interest in staying on a resort the entire time (really I'm not in love with resorts period lol), so for me, if I can't go off resort safely, what business do I have being there at all? Also they  made be throw out my coffee before I got on the plane- the coffee I got at the food court at the gate. I'm holding that grudge LOL. A long story short- it's not on my list of returns. I can honestly say that I'm not sure I would accept an invitation to a wedding in the DR- I think I'd rather save that money and go to Mexico! (or the UK, or Iceland, or just Europe in general lol)  I don't regret going, but I'd sooner go to Mexico if I'm looking for a beach!  That's just me- millions of people go there and have a great time! I guess it really comes down to what type of traveller you are (are you okay with being on a resort and just leaving for excursions)!
    • Hello, thank you so much for this it’s all very helpful.. are you from the UK OR US? ive never been and I probably won’t visit the destination until I get married! Oh my gosh I have looked at your resort it is beautiful!! my family have been to the Dominican.. can I ask why you didn’t find it as safe?   Thanks again
