Congratulations!! I also got engaged in August and we chose October 1st, 2011 as our wedding date! My fiance is in great shape, but I would like to loose 60 lbs. I think its great that you and your fiance are doing this together! Before and after photos are a great idea! I think I am going to use that idea too and take a before picture! I hope that we will be able to keep in touch throughout our journey and be able to help motivate eachother!! Best of luck!
Congrats! My fiance and I are getting married next November! We also just joined a gym. We have about 100lbs to lose to be the weight we would like to be! I am not counting on that much loss, but would like to lose about 50 or 75. Good Luck!
Congratulations! My fiance and I are trying to pick our wedding day for next October as well :-). We both have 30lbs each that we're striving to work off at the gym ourselves.
Something that really helps me when starting out a new plan is taking things gradually. Like I started logging everything I ate for 15 days and just added exercise. I love food, I hate giving it up. I needed a good reason.
Well, after seeing the amount of empty non-nutritional calories I was eating, it was pretty easy to readjust the daily menu with the mindset of "that hour on the elliptical just counted a WHOLE LOT MORE since I didn't have that glass of beer."
You'll conquer that love affair with sweets and you are going to be THE HOTNESS come October!
I just joined sparkpeople. I got engaged in august and we are getting married 10-16-11. I couldn't be happier! i've gained about 40 pounds since college and feel gross. I want to look and feel great on my wedding day and my ultimate goal is to wear a bikini on our honeymoon and feel comfortable in it!
My fiance and I are taking "before" pictures tomorrow and joining the local gym tomorrow. We're committing to going together at least 3 times a week. Food will be the hardest part for me because I love everything bad... especially sweets. Wish me luck!
