Hey guys!!!
My name is Larissa and I am 22 years old. I got engaged on Valentines Day this year to the man of my dreams. He makes me laugh, finishes my sentences, and I couldn't imagine life without him. We are getting married May 2015, so I have about a year to lose about 50 pounds. Thanks in advance for the support!!!

Hi everyone :)
My name is Ashley, I'm a 20 year old bride to be, we are planning to get married in October 2015 but we might sign the papers this October for family reasons.
We got engaged on Halloween 2013 and it was so amazing, I was upset all day because it was the first year I wasn't going trick or treating so he grabbed 2 reeses cups and made me go trick or treating for them and when I got up to our house, he got down on one knee and asked me to marry him.
I have used spark people before when I was a teen to lose weight but I lost motivation, but now I'm back with more motivation than ever! I just need to stay that way

Work for what you want. it wont come just by wanting.

Happy Satuday!

My name is Priscilla and in last February I got engaged to a man that I have been in love with for over 5 years now :) I have been on Sparpeople before but have never managed to pull through and loose the weight. Now that things are aligning themselves in my life, I feel like I am finally ready to take care of myself and take control over my weight so I can be a beautiful and healthy bride and wife for all the years to come. The wedding is planned for September 20th 2015 which gives me over a year to loose the 50 pounds I wish to loose. I am currently 180 pounds and believe 130 is a healthy weight to maintain for someone who is 5 feet 4 inches. My biggest fault is lack of consistency, so hopefully I will be able to maintain it by focusing on my goal and with all you guys help :)!

Enjoy the weekend!

It is so wonderful to hear of so many people that are committing to one another. It is such a devotion to have such faith in another human being. I as well am engaged to be married in the next year. The date will be determined by another event. Our first date is June 21st of this year which is the summer solstice, of which we both enjoy. Our second date is September 20th of this year which brings to mind a since of tranquility. Either date it will be an enjoyable event! My goal has been to lose 100lbs in the next year. We both really like riding bikes and seem to find our way around the city and hit the trails, I believe he would be great at mt biking and would like to get him a bike for his birthday. He is fearless! I like watching him being fearless it gives me a great wonder in the opposite sex! I and my daughter are cautious and I have taught her to be so. : ) So far i have lost 13lbs. WooHoo!

Hi, my name is Shannon. I am going to be 32 years old this weekend and got engaged just a few weeks ago! It was a total shock and I'm so excited! We are thinking about getting married in March 2015. I have been working out trying to get my body beach ready for our vacation planned for April 30th and I have been running quite a bit because I registered to run a half marathon in June. I have plenty of reasons to eat better and exercise, now I just need to do it! I've lost 5 lbs so far but need to lose another 10 lbs.

Hi All! My name is Katie, and I am a 31 year old bride to be! We got engaged on Christmas (total surprise), and we are planning a destination wedding to Turks & Caicos in December 2014!

It's been a few years since I can say I felt great about my diet & exercise, and I'm hoping I can find the motivation here to get back into that lifestyle!

I love going to the gym & I also love cooking so I have that in my corner. My biggest downfall is portion control, and I often struggle with balancing food as fuel and just plain overeating.

My sister is also on a weight-loss journey, so we are going to motivate each other as well!

Hi, My name is Raelean and I am a 25year old bride to be. I am planning a spring wedding in 2015 so this should give me enough time to get in shape.

I have joined SP for motivation and support on getting into the best shape of my life, and to keep it that way for years to come.

Hi everyone!
My name is Mary and I'm an almost 29-year old bride-to-be! On April 5, 2014 I will marry my fiance Drew in Fort Worth, TX :).

I have used SparkPeople in the past to help me lose a few pounds, but now I'm back because as my wedding quickly approaches, I have reached my highest weight ever! I have 20-25 lbs to lose to feel my best on my wedding day (and my honeymoon!), and I know SparkPeople can help me do it.

In addition to wedding planning, I am currently in the late stages of training for a December 31 half-marathon with some girlfriends. I want to add strength training and proper eating to my training to help me maximize my performance and my weight loss, and I know the Spark Community will also be a huge help :).

I bought the Bridalicious Bootcamp DVDs from The Knot and am getting started tomorrow, so if anyone else is doing those, let me know so we can be buddies!

Hi All!!
I got engaged this Thanksgiving! It was an amazing surprise and the most perfect proposal with a more than perfect ring!

I've struggled with my weight my entire life. Every time I start dieting I'm more heavy then I've been. I know if I try on a dress right now, i will be completely disgusted with myself. This engagement will give me the motivation to lose at least 40 pounds!

I know it won't be easy but I'm ready! My biggest downfall is exercise and my will power to stay away from sweets and greasy food. I know I will need help so i'm turning to spark people, once again, to get this done!

Thank you all for your support and congrats to all!

Ahhh, still can't believe it, but he did just propose a few days ago :) I am still so excited, and I couldn't be happier. He took me to the pumpkin patch with the nieces and nephews (I mentioned that I wanted to do that at the beginning of fall). We all picked the perfect pumpkin, went home, and got started cleaning them out. Turns out, there was a ring in my pumpkin!! He put it in through the bottom when I left the room! :)
We are probably waiting until next year fall/winter, so I have plenty of time, but you can never start early enough!
I am at a healthy weight, but I am working on toning up, so that I can be a hot bride for my man! :)

I am looking forward to be part of this team! Congratulations to all the other brides/grooms! :)

Hi all, I'm breanna, just got engaged in august, and we set our wedding date for 4/3/16 (being sentimental and keeping our original anniversary date). I need to lose 60lbs for the wedding. I have struggled with my weight after losing the weight through WW and gained back 15lbs and was okay with that but I have IBS and the medication I was on put me from 135ish to 202. I have been off the medication since May and have not gained anything but have not lost anything either. Just started changing my diet and tracking everything and I lost my first 2 lbs last week so i am very happy. I noticed tracking that I am eating now UNDER my ranges so that isn't good. I also cannot exercise right now, I have a labrel tear in my hip joint, in constant pain and moving makes it worse, getting that fixed this year hopefully by the end of November.
So thats me.

Hi all! I've just joined the group and glad to be here. My fiance and I are getting married with just the two of us in Hawaii in December and then having a reception with everyone in March. Is like to lose about another 7-10 pounds before our wedding. I've lost about 20 pounds since joining spark people and had gotten myself into really good habits, but I got sent on a 2 month business trip to Belgium, which was awesome except that I spent the whole time having no option besides eating in restaurants and despite doing a while bunch of running while there I gained about 7 pounds back and got into a lot of bad habits. I haven't lost that weight fully yet and my biggest problem is portion control and getting back into those good habits!

Hi! I'm Regina. We got engaged May 18 and just set our date for August 9, 2014. At the beginning of May, I made a commitment to being more healthy. I graduated with my Masters in May and am moving from the midwest to California at the end of this month. Even with all of these changes, I have been able to lose and not gain in the past two months. I want to lose around forty pounds before I buy my wedding dress in December, and I have already lost 7. I tend to be a slow- but consistent- loser when I really set my mind and my heart to it, so I am confident that I can reach my goal!

If you fail to plan, you plan to fail.

Hi, my name is Katie! I got engaged to my boyfriend of 4 years on June 2nd. We are thinking Sept 2014 will be when we get married but we are still venue shopping so we havenít set a specific date. There have been a lot of changes for me lately and my weight issue has only gotten worse. I needed some encouragement to start making healthier choices so here I am. I want to start this next phase of my life on a healthy note and hopefully look good in my wedding dress!

Welcome!!!! That's amazing that you want to wait for your son to be old enough to be in it! Also i think being a surrogate is amazing and you'd be helping a couple have their dreams come true!!!!

I put this in the wrong spot it seems, so here's a copy, =P .

The name's Karinna, and I've just recently committed myself to get into shape and lose weight. I'm 23, 5'8", 220lbs -a BMI of 33.4. I set my wedding date rather far off, 4/12/2015. I did that because I want my son to be the ring bearer. He's so adorable, he is turning 1 on 6/25/2012. I've tried to lose weight with my fiance, as well as my mother before, but neither worked out. With the two of us, there was always an excuse here or there. So, I'm hoping by joining this website, and this group, I'll be able to get some help to stick to my goal. Get into a nice healthy weight before my wedding. I also want to sell some of my eggs, yet at my current BMI, they won't take them. I'm also contemplating being a surrogate. I'm not good at socializing, I don't do it very often, so I tend to be a bit awkward.

Yes I have found a venue and I sort of know what dress I want and a few vendors that carry it. Where can I see the weekly challenges?

Hi there!
My name is Mercedes and I am 24 years old. This is my second time around at spark people. The first time I lost 125 pounds but gained back 45 of those when I got ill with my back. Now I'm getting married to my lovely fiancee. We are planing a big commitment ceremony in Florida in Oct 2014 and hopefully fly up to a state where it is legal to get married. I plan on losing the last 111 lbs I need this time around!

A better day is only a gay rainbow away!

Try, try until you succeed, but never ever look back to the past.

Hi everyone. My name is Joanne and I have already lost 70 pounds and I have 90 more to go to reach my goal. I am getting married to the love of my life and best friend Allan on October 24, 2015. I know it is a long way off but we both wanted a certain date and that is when it falls on a Saturday. That happens to be the date that my parents got married and Allan came up with the idea of having us start our married lived together on the same special day. I have been in a slump lately and I need to get unslumped so here I am. emoticon

Hi! I'm Jessica and I am 21 years old. I got engaged on March 8 of this year and I am getting married June 8! From January 2012 to January of this year, I lost a total of 70 pounds. For the past few months, I have just been maintaining, but now since I'm getting married, I'm working on losing a few more pounds. I'm around 177 pounds now and would like to be around 170 by my wedding which I know is totally doable. The problem is my lack of motivation and energy. I go to school full time and my classes are pretty hard, so I'm always doing homework or studying or going to class. It's hard to find time to exercise, and eating junk is much more convenient than eating healthy.
Here's to getting back on track and meeting our goals!

~Jess~

Good Afternoon! I'm Martine. I live on the Eastern NC Coast. I got engaged on Christmas day....it was a surprise. I am an older bride... 55 and never have been married. was just waiting for him to come along I suppose...he's certainly worth the wait. He had his grandchildren propse by having them each hold up a poster on Christmas morning...with last poster asking me to marry their gramp pa....very special indeed!
We will be getting married Spring of 2014...I really want to take the next year to lose....I've been trying forever so I am a turtle in thsi process. But I refuse to give up. I've had a personal trainer for 4 years so I'm fit...just not the size I'd like to be....so I will give it my all!
Thank you for rejuvinating this group!

Good morning!
I am 39 and live in Indiana. I am getting married on May 4th in South West Florida on the beach and I want to look great in any dress I choose. This is why I am here! I want to lose a bit and tone up! I don't want that bulge over top my sleeveless dress.

Look forward to getting to know each and every one of you! We are all on a journey to look magical on that special day! Also please feel free to email us with ideas on challenges and other things.

So I am Tammy! Not officially engaged yet, he is still deciding from the 6 rings, I am seriously hoping he picks the first. He's the one that wanted options to pick from.. FIRST!!!! But I do like all of them.

We have talked about a day and it will be March-May maybe Summer time. I just really want there to be tons of wild flowers!

I am from Houston but now live in the panhandle. Have 4 dogs (2 pits, 2boxers) and 2 cats. I am super excited about this!


If you believe you can or if you believe you cannot, you are right!

So let's believe we CAN
