My big day wont be until Feb 2016, but we are having a destination wedding and I want to drop 50 lbs by next February as that is when we are going to pick out a destination and visit it to make sure it is perfect! :) I'll want to drop another 15 after that before the wedding, but i'm trying to just focus on the 50 lbs i need to drop within the next year. Its kinda sad, but I ended up gaining about 30 lbs in the last year... I moved across Canada to be with my military man, and i may have taken a bit too much comfort in food, and left my gym buddy and best girlfriend behind. I've been motivated lately, and i'm going to keep up my streak. goal is to eat within my range (1200-1550cal) and to work out at least 4 times a week. In on my 15th day streak! I'm ready for this!

Suffer the pain of discipline, or suffer the pain of regret.

The big day is September 6th and I'm hoping I can get a grip on this body of mine! Just got home from a 45 min workout at the gym! I refuse to give up! I love Spark and know it is going to be just what I need.

I am also getting married this September and hoping to meet my weight loss goal by then. I started using spark people a few months ago and have been using it on and off. Unfortunately I have been off spark people more than on it lately and looking to finally get back on track.

Hi, I really need some help, but not sure if you can! We are renewing our marriage vows for our 15th anniversary this year. I will be going in for a dress fitting in May, and I really want to lose about 30-50 pounds. I have Hashimotos Disease (Thyroid disease) which makes it that much harder for my thyroid to metabolize and to have the energy for working out (not to mention I have 7 homeschooled kids which makes working out at all near impossible!). Please let me know if you can help me lose in a healthy way :)

Thanks!

I want to get in shape before marriage. We are both ready, and want to see each other's parents... but I don't want to be disliked by my future in laws by the way I look! :(

I was just proposed to at the ripe age of 50!! I used to dream of being married. I just want to be happy healthy and not feel awkward having my photo taken or trying to fit in the dress of my dreams. I figure I've waited long enough so I deserve all this and more. We all do, so here's wishing all of us the success and happiness we deserve!!

Anything is possible. and if you work out and tone your muscles it will make whatever weight you do lose look better.

and I am sure you will be a beautiful bride no matter what.

My husband and I had a Vegas courthouse wedding January 6th. We are having a ceremony / reception in October 2014 and I really want to look AMAZING and feel slim and pretty.

My middle daughter is attending her first school dance this month so we went to David's Bridal to look for formal dresses for her. While we were there, my daughters convinced me to try on a wedding dress and it was horrible.

My goal is to lose 50 lbs by October. I know it will be difficult as hell, but I'd be so happy if I can just drop 3 dress sizes and not be a "plus size" bride and be able to fit into the regular (and prettier) dresses.

If anyone wants a work out buddy, send me an IM.

I hope that this site will aide me into losing weight for my Oct.2014 nuptials. I am actually already married, my husband and I will be celebrating our 20th wedding anniversary this year with a vow renewal ceremony and I am more than excited. I really want to be a healthier more beautiful version of myself on that day.

We haven't picked an exact date, April 2015. We are just narrowing down our venue choices and then go with what they have available. (not Easter though).

Oh, I haven't been engaged that long. Since June of 2013, which is long enough in my world. I had to wait over 3 years to get the ring lol.

I kinda am on the track where I have been engaged two years now so I partly feel like I will never get married, haha. I think once I book a venue I will believe it.

I am hoping to lock down the date May 23th, 2015. We had hoped to get married in 2014, but things didn't work out. 2015 seems like a good year! I want with my whole heart to be 50 lbs lighter. I can't see myself at the weight I am at. I guess I have some time. My dream dress is open back and sides.

Okay first off, new to this site and still trying to figure out if I am using it right. If I hit reply and type my message does it go on the main board or as a reply to the last message??


Also I am a bride to be, April 2015 is our date and I am stuck losing the last 30lbs. I need help, a push, motivation, an accountability buddy, a venting buddy, ANYTHING that will help me get where I need to be.

Please send on the advise and any tips you do, I really want to tone my whole buddy not just lose weight.

HEYDANIXO -
You got plenty of time to get in the right mind set and accomplish your goal!
Do it the right way -
Exercise, diet, plenty of water.... No matter what - do not give up
I worked out - or thought I did for almost 8 months
Ate salads, fruits, veggies, everything I thought I was doing right
Stopped soda all together gave up sweet tea....
cut out all carbs, pasta, bread, rice corn.... you name it
Made visit after visit to the Dr's
ran test after test
Went to San Antonio River walk for spring break and gorged.... and no matter what - not a single pound difference....
you would have thought - I would gain at the river walk or lose with everything I did before hand....
NOPE
I added iron to my diet (3 pills per day per Drs recommendation) and added Vit C to help it get absorbed....
and Went back to the gym, 4 days a week, added weights for all over into my routine, and hit my gazelle during our tv time at night and Wa-La - finally results.... after a month!
Take overall measurements - chances are you will see the results there before you will in the scale
and remember - the scale is a helpful tool but definitely NOT your best friend

just signed our wedding contract with the venue this past Saturday. Date is set 10/3/15!! I would like to loose 70-80 lbs and looks like I have plenty of time to get to that goal. This is my first week on this website and so far for my first day I am loving it. Dress shopping starts in January so I gotta get moving (:

JSKARBEAR - we have changed our date a half dozen times in the last 4 years....
I feel your pain
Then I realized - this is our wedding - not theirs
I would love for them to be able to make it
but if they cant - I will go on with it and they will just have to miss it
There was just no way to make sure EVERYONE was able to make it and still have the wedding WE wanted....

I'm getting married October of 2014 if everything goes according to plan! we've had to change our date like 4 times because of family issues now hopefully everything will be on track and my goal is to lose at the least 60lbs by then! I'm finally starting to lose weight and put muscle on I'm still very overweight for my age and I'm looking forward to being healthy and fit! I looked through a lot of comments on here. Girls (and guys) as long as your healthy and he (or she) loves you for who you are it's what matters! Do it for yourself! That's what my guy keeps telling me. "Do it for yourself because YOU are worth it!"

I'm getting married in 4 months. I bought my dress at the end of June but I've put on about 10 lbs since then. The dress fit like a glove in June. I'm hoping to lose the 10 I put on plus another 10 before the middle of December. That gives me about 4 months. 4 pounds a month. 1 pound a week. Totally doable. Now I just have to DO IT!

Howdy everyone
I have been engaged to the man of my dreams for almost 4 years now
He has been patient and understand with me
I am the only reason we are not married yet
I want to lose this irritating weight I put on and it seems that no matter what I try and make an extensive effort at - nothing works
Well
I refuse to give up
I am back on the wagon
hitting the gym three to five days week during my lunch and skating on the weekends and using my Gazelle while watching television at night - when we aren't swimming in our new pool.... I eat well -
small portions
light on the carbs,
low on the calories
no soda
no sweet tea
tons of flavored waters....
coffee in the morning with minimal sugar added - Im try to go completely black but YUKYUKYUK
I had decided that no matter what I want to marry my dream this coming Aug (2014)
Any suggestions, guidance, helpful tips/hints would be greatly appreciated

Hey! First and foremost, congratulations on your wedding! December is right around the corner and that's sooo exciting (my wedding is Feb. 2014). That being said, you can totally lose those stubborn 15 lbs! Take it one day at a time! I'm confident in you and excited for you!

I get married next July I do not have a certain weight goal just to be healthier and smaller so I have a bigger variety of dresses to pick from but I am a yo-yo dieter and so I feel losing weight will be very hard for me. I would love some help of advice.

Success is a journey, not a destination. Focus on the process.
Some people dream about success... while others wake up and work hard at it.
Success is achieved and maintained by those who try-and keep trying.
Everyday is a good day to SUCCEED!
If at first you don't succeed-try, try again

Getting Married in JUNE! annnnd..... I am already stressed out. lol o.0

It's not easy. And I am tormented by a fear.

That I will go try on dresses and they wont have anything that fits me.

Dress shopping should be fun and almost effortless. But this ain't a scene for a movie... just like I ain't a size 7. lol

Time to start looking tho...

We're getting married THIS October (it's so great to say that!!!!) and I want to lose the last 15 pounds before then. I have the dress - bought it just before Christmas - and I want/need to work on toning up my back and arms. (Strapless gown, totally not what I was originally thinking!)

Our wedding night will be extra special for us, if you catch my drift, so I want to really wow my man. I know he loves me no matter what, but I want to be confident in my own skin.

I bought him a fitbit for Christmas, and so we're tracking each other's activity levels and what-not too. (We're long distance until who knows when.)

Our wedding is on for June 29, 2013! I'd like to lose around 15 lbs of emotional eating that I gained when my mother got sick.

I have a wide back since I used to be a swimer when I was a teen. This is the dress of my dreams and I am panicking that it does not fit when I'm apparently doing all the right things!!! Please help! what can I do to loose some weight and still keep enough energy to work out, keep up with work, wedding planning, school and all that jazz. Please help!!!!

Hi Jenna! I know this board is for bride-to-be's, but do you have any advice for us married gals? Lol. I am looking to lose between 50 to 60 lbs between now and my one year anniversary next year on 03/24/13. I have lost 90 lbs so far, but it has taken me 4 yrs to lose it and maintain it, but I still have at least another 90 to 100 lbs to go. It would be a wonderful anniversary gift to both myself and my husband if I was at least 60 lbs into my final goal. I am open to all advice! emoticon

I can do all the things through CHRIST which strengtheneth me - Phil 4:13 (KJV)

I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your BODIES a LIVING SACRIFICE, HOLY, ACCEPTABLE unto God, which is your reasonable service. - Romans 12:1 (KJV)

I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. - Phil 3:14 (KJV)

I'm getting married in November of 2014, but I want to lose the weight before I need to pick out my dress.

I'm 19 and I weigh around 245, I'd really like to lose 115 pounds or so, but I would be ok with losing less.

My main problems with this:
I'm a picky eater (it's actually to the point of being considered an eating disorder)
I lack major motivation :(

Please, pleeease someone help me??

I'm getting married in 47 days (11/3/12) and I really want to get rid of the fat under my arm pits so it's not hanging over my dress. Gross. I would like to lose as much as I can but my dress fits. I would just like it to be not so snug. And with the stress and planning, I have a hard time getting to the gym.

Hello,

I am new here but I am getting married early next year and really need to lose some weight. I thought that the wedding alone would be enough motivation but it seems that I am rebelling against myself all the time. I used to be really fit, and do enjoy exercise when I force myself to start. I am also kind of in training for a half marathon (in 6 weeks time) and my motivation for this has also diminished. I need some help/advice/motivation fast and I need to stop burying my head in the sand. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Sarah

Hi Jenna I would love some help. I want to lose as close to 50 pounds as I can by My wedding which is April 13,2013. First of all I am clueless on diet. All I know if thew easy stuff that I grew up with. I am busy and can't bring myself to preplan everything for a week or what I would even plan. I also am looking into different ways to get a workout in without a lot of alone time from my daughter to do it. I would love any help I could get. Thanks!

I think that you need to try different things and know that it is all a process this should help you from getting overwhelmed.. Sokme workout are not for everybody so try different things to see if they intrest or motivate you and know that if you don't like it you can try something new without the pressure. I know it has made a big difference for me. Good luck!

Hi.

My name is Andrea, and I'm getting married 10/2012. I've already lost 24 pounds, and have much further to go, but the loss is heartening. I'm tickled that my dress may need to be brought in! I understand weight loss requires a lifestyle change, and the loss I've done so far has been purely by diet changes.

I"m stressing out, as I'm moving to my fiancé's city in October as well.
Any suggestions to keep me on track would be appreciated!

Hi Jenna!

I could certainly use a little help! I am getting married in October emoticon I have lost the weight I want to lose. I am becoming more stressed out as the day gets closer with planning and working full time. Because of this, I am turning to food and slacking on my workouts! EEEEEK! I will have my custom made dress next week and hope it will fit! My weight at the beginning of this week was still only a couple of pounds over what I want, but after the food I ingested this week, who knows! I just know I have to stop eating like that. I do feel more motivated and less stressed today and ate really well yesterday and today...so far!

I am a trained Wellness Coach, so I know all the methods that I SHOULD be using..but just cannot seem to inact them! Would you be interested in coaching me and helping me just cope with my stress without turning to my cravings?!!!

Thanks!!!

you might not be losing the weight but tape your self. you might just be losing the inches if you are working out that much and not losing the pounds

Please Help! I've been working out solidly 4 days/week since January and have not lost a single pound or inch. My wedding is July 12/2013 and I need some tips for diet/fitness. Currently I am doing 45 minutes of cardio (step master or elliptical) then i do weights focusing on one part of my body each time (legs, arms/back or abs) for 30 mins then stretch for 15. I eat relatively healthy and drink only water or tea!

Any info or tips??

Hi! Your post is like a breath of fresh air! I could use some help and/or direction. I want to lose 25 pounds by October. My first dress fitting is in November and I'm getting hitched March 23, 2013. I am not set on that number of 25 pounds, persay - I understand that weight is just a number - But I'd like to be where I feel great! I can't seem to motivate myself to exercise! I own a treadmill & an exercise ball - and last week I bought the Biggest Loser for the XBox Kinect - but now I feel overwhelmed and not sure where to start haha. If you have some time, I'd appreciate any advice. Thanks much!

Hi jenna!

I would love a bit of advice. My Situation:

Getting married Nov 17th 2012
I go to the gym 3 times a week for spin class
play baseball once a week
walk everywhere!

Food:
Gluten free diet-
lots of fresh veggies and fruit daily
lots of lean proteins
minimal processed foods

Problem: I am seeing success with lifestyle and diet but my tummy fat is just not going away fast enough. I know cardio burns a lot of fat ( I already spin 3 times a week remember)
do you think adding in more cardio would get me better results IE should I start jogging on the days I am not spinning? Other suggestions?
I am gaining a lot of muscle especially in my legs and a bit in my core its just that I have muscles with a layer of fat over them on my belly.

Thanks for your time and reply!

Hi Jenna and everyone else!

I'm new to this site I'm getting married in December and have lost 24 so far but would like to lose another 30 or so. I just started using this site and I really do like it. I want to get more serious about exercise and I could REALLY use your help. I feel like I have been picking and choosing different exercises from magazines, this site and I''m not feeling confident in this. Need some direction. I really want to look good in my wedding dress!! Help please :-)

Hi Jenna.....my name is Gina and I could sure use some encouragement (well from ANY of you who have posted here.) and I would be more than happy to help out & encourage anyone in this forum too.

We do not have a "set in stone" wedding date yet, but I did go dress shopping last weekend with my childhood friend who flew into town to see me for a few days. WOW, what a shocker that she (who has always been the heavier of the two of us) looked great in the 3 dresses she tried on.....and ME, I looked so fat & awful. Not a great self-esteem boost at all!

I recently moved and most of my closest friends live out-of-state, so basically I have no one close by to work out with or to get help & encouragement from. So any "fitness buddies" I can make would be great!
