Tue, 3 Jul 2012 10:00:14 EST Hi everyone!!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=-1x52408x48401256 I am new to Sparkpeople and found this team, which I hope will push me in the right direction. I got engaged over a year ago and planned to lose weight during that time. Unfortunately, I gained more. Now at 4 months till the wedding, I know I have to do something. I am an emotional eater and have been very stressed with the wedding, work and just general day to day life at times. I need a push to get me going.

I joined SparkPeople a couple of years ago mostly for the foodtracker as part of another program and actually lost some weight.

I justify it in my head by reminding myself that they don't have to pay for a hotel, they're staying at my house, they are wearing their own shoes and jewellery, and my fiance is treating us to hair and makeup, so they don't have to pay for that- but it still seems like a lot. <BR> <BR> ...

I just rejoined sparkpeople again after a couple years. I am getting married on Sept.15 2012. I would like to lose at least 26lbs. by my wedding.

So many of the teams are empty of any recent brides. So introduction: I have been on sparkpeople for awhile. I initially lost 35 pounds. I recently regained about 8 but ultimately want to get down to 120lbs for my wedding day. I won't be getting my fittings until August so I need to reach my goal weight before that.

However, she doesn't get along with my sister (MOH), has financial difficulties, a newborn and a 5-year old, and a very irresponsible husband. I did not ask her to be a bridesmaid because of these factors, the main reasons being that I didn't want it to be a financial or time burden on her. I had not told her yet and she found out that I had asked another friend to be a bri...

I already did the Save the Dates as a magnet from www.vistaprint.com. They are awesome:-) I think I'll post a blog for them since I can't add a pic here. <BR> <BR> Hugs, <BR> Paula Fri, 9 Sep 2011 16:22:42 EST Hi Team http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=-1x52408x43904299 My name Shae and I will be getting married on June 1, 2012. I joined because I would like some support and motivation in losing the remaining weight. On my own I have been able to go from 308 lbs to 219 lbs. It has become somewhat of a challenge for me. It is nine months before the wedding and I am afraid to even look at wedding gowns. I am ready to get back on track and get it done.

I hope it's do-able and that I can stay motivated. <BR> <BR> Any tips for weight loss and motivation? <BR> <BR> Thanks! <BR> Nora Thu, 1 Sep 2011 23:43:33 EST p90x http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=0x52408x43849422 Hi Ladies!

I have done them in the past. I did not stick to the every day for 90 days though. <BR> <BR> This time I really want to stick with it! I can periodically post updates on how it is going. If anyone else was planning on doing it, it would be...
