Hi, my name is Shenee. We are planning on getting married July of 2015. I'm hoping to lose 50 lbs by January of 2015. I"m just so excited to marry my fiancé. We decided to support each other in getting healthy, however we are taking different approaches because our eating habits are so different.

Hi! I'm Emily, 27 recently enagaged. We're hoping to get married June 15, 2015. I really hope to lose 40lbs between now and then.
My fiance and I are starting the Insanity DVD tomorrow. I love that he's willing to workout with me just to support my goals. However, I wasn't keen on doing insanity but that's what he wanted to do and he's going to help me stick with him so i figured as hard as it's going to be, it will be worth. I love that we're doing it together every step of the way.

Hi everyone! I got engaged May 26th, and we are aiming for a June 2015 wedding.
I'm super excited because I have decided to do a year long bootcamp. Every day I am successful I am putting a donation up to my favorite charity. I think its going to make for a super fun year before my wedding!
We are trying to go to Yosemite and Monterey for our honeymoon:)

Hi everyone! I'm Amy, and just got engaged yesterday so it's all still super new to me. We don't have a date yet, but are excited to pick our venue and plan around that! I have no clue how all this stuff works, I'm just having tons of fun on pinterest with ideas. I've been really struggling with my weight, so I have a bit more than a year to lose a good amount. Just hope I can do it.

Hello all,
my name is Lauren. My fiancé and I will be getting married July 2015 but I figure its never too early to get in shape. I wanna look good for our engagement photos and any boudoir pics I have done for him. My goals arent so much about weight loss as they are toning up what I have. Looking forward to participating in this lovely community :-)

Hey ya'll! Congratulations to everyone on getting engaged! We just got engaged April 3, 2014. Since we had already been talking about a wedding, we already know where we are going to have it and will be getting married Sept 19, 2014. So I have five months or so to lose the 10-15 pounds I want to lose to look great in my dress!!!

Hey everyone I'm Jess.. ok so I'm not engaged yet, but after 5 1/2 years my man has really started talking about marriage and our future together (we don't live together yet). The only thing stopping him is that he cannot afford the ring, which.. honestly I don't care about anyway.
So we have new motivation to lose some of this weight that has been hangin around too long-- cos hey I plan on looking AMAZING in my dress and this belly/back fat combo I have going just isn't cute.

Our plan is pretty simple to do a honeymoon/wedding combo with just the 2 of us. I've said since I was a little girl that I never plan on getting married, so I never even thought about it.. til I'm pushing 40-- but eloping should be easy.. right? :)

anyway just thought I'd join to keep the need to eat right/exercise at the front of my mind. Not to mention .. maybe you all have some ideas I can uh.. borrow

take care!

Hi Everyone! My name is Ashley and I am getting married on May 24, 2014 in Las Vegas! I am from Midland, Texas and my fiance Ryan popped the question on November 29 (Black Friday) 2013. We are having a short engagement so I really need to get on the ball to look fantastic in my dress.

Hi everyone! I'm SO excited that I found this website, because now I have the motivation and support to lose weight and get in shape for my June 2015 wedding!

My fiancee and I met in the fire department about 3-4 years ago, but never became a couple until late 2012. Little to my knowledge, he had wanted to ask me on a date for awhile, just never getting up the courage to do so. We've been inseparable ever since!

On Christmas Eve, 2013, he got down on one knee and popped that famous question that I had been dying to hear (I'll save the gushy details :)) and now we are excitedly planning our wedding! It is also serving as my motivation to finally kick my butt into shape to look the best I can in my wedding dress!

I currently weigh about 240 (estimate, because I don't have a scale at the current moment). I hope to weigh 150 by the time of my wedding, in a little less than a year and a half. It seems like a far off goal, but I can't wait to see the change in my body to keep my motivated!

Hey Ya'll, I'm Sarah! My fiancee John and I met August 2013 and have been completely unseperable every since. I was never the little girl who planned her wedding since infancy, but I have to admit that I have been obsessed with all things wedding since we moved in together about 7 months ago. On Christmas Eve 2013 my love asked me to be his forever! We are hoping for a fall wedding, so I have about 7-8 months to get my booty in gear. Im happy to have found you all, and look forward to inspiring each other and discussing wedding plans!

Hello and congratulations to all of you fabulous brides-to-be!
My name is Sara and I got engaged on Black Friday 2013. I can't believe it's already been a month! My fiance, Ben, and I met in grad school last year and are thrilled to be taking this next step together. I have struggled with my weight for as long as I can remember, and I finally feel like I have a strong enough motivation to actually woman up and get healthy! I want to look good in my dress and to be able to shop for whatever I want, from whichever store I want, for whatever other clothes I may need, but I'm also just done with being this way. For me, I've been self-conscious about my body at times though I don't think I've ever really hated myself because of it. I just don't *feel* happy and healthy, and I want to be able to start off my married life with Ben on the right foot.

I'm looking forward to getting to know you all during this super exciting time! Let's do it!!!! emoticon

Hi y'all!! ..and CONGRATULATIONS!!

My name is Rosie and I'm getting married December 20th 2014!!! Eeek!
My fiancé and I met at Texas State university and just hit our 5.5 year mark. He asked me at the Dallas arboretum over a bridge June 2013. I couldn't believe it! We have been in a long distance relationship for a year now. I teach in DFW and he is a designer in Austin we both love our jobs but have decided long distance is no fun. Once married we will be together (in the same house hold) forever!

Please feel free to add me and I hope we can motivate each other! (as well as swap ideas for planning and catering!)

My goal is to live a healthy life WITH curves!

Strategy #1: Eat breakfast

Strategy #2: Pack snacks to keep at my desk

Strategy #3: Lift weights then cardio

Strategy #4: Drink more H2o

Hello! I am Lacey! I just got engaged this past Friday and I am so very excited. I have used SparkPeople in the past but I kept falling off. I haven't really had any great motivation to do anything about my weight.

I have a goal weight but the goal isn't important. I need to see the bigger picture and just become a better and healthier me!

I can't wait for Spring 2015 when I get to marry the man of my dreams! We haven't officially set a date yet. Kind of still really new to us and we are just enjoying life right now!

I have about a year and a half to become the better and healthier version of myself and I am ready to get started!!!

Hi all!

I'm Colleen, and I have been engaged to the most wonderful guy for 2.5 years (together for 6.5)! We're getting married November 2015, and I want to lose around 50-60 lbs by my best friend's wedding in November 2014.

We may be taking the 'long route' to marriage, but I couldn't be any happier with who I will spend the rest of my life with :)

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 :).

Hi! I am newly motivated (as of Monday!) to lose 30 pounds before my May 3rd wedding. We have been engaged for more than a year so I keep telling myself I can lose weight later, it's so far off... but it's creeping up quickly! I signed up for a gym and am excited to get back into taking classes but I am VERY nervous about the diet part. I don't eat very much junk food, fast food etc but I love me some carbs, and being from Texas of course good Mexican food. I love food, I love cooking, I love Chopped! I may have to change my DVR schedule. I'm hoping this website will be a good tool to keep me on track.

Hello! My name's Sarah and I'm getting married on September 21st, 2014. My fiance and I used to be high school sweethearts (we were together for 2 years), and then he joined the military and I went to college, so we broke things off and never kept in touch. 10 years later we randomly meet again at a restaurant I was working at, and we've been back together ever since! We've been back together for 3 years now. We had originally planned on getting married this year, but couldn't due to our financial situation. This year our finances aren't TOO much better, but my fiance says we'll make it work somehow, no matter what! We just ordered our save the dates 2 days ago!

Hi,

My name is Alex. My fiancé and I recently got engaged and are getting married in Feb 2015 (I am from New Zealand so that is summer time here). As my wedding is a while away I have a year to get my diet and exercise right so I can look the best on my wedding day. This page looks like an awesome place to get tips and motivation to meet my goal weight!

Hi Everyone!

My name is Renee and I got engaged just over 1 month ago! My fiancé (still getting used to that word) and I have been together for over 8 years, and we are so excited to have entered this new phase of our relationship!

As its only been about a month, I am still absolutely buzzing! Couldn't wait to go out and buy all my Bridal magazines, circling like crazy, making notes... My maid of honour also bought me the best planner book I could have ever imagined!

I have a couple of distinct goals (weight/tone/health -wise), and a couple of key timeframes to achieve them by. First is the engagement party. I'd like to drop half my goal weight by then (4kgs). The dress shopping will come shortly after so I don't want to be too far off my goal by then! WHoo! Exciting times ahead!

Hi all! My name is Lisa. I'm not a first time bride but want to lose weight to fit into a wedding dress for my 25th anniversary vow renewal ceremony. It's not until July 2014, but thought that I should get a start now with Spark People and join your Spark Team for motivation! Looking forward to meeting you on the message boards! =)

Peace and blessings!

Hi everyone. I'm Corrin and I will be getting married in July 2014. I'm working to find the motivation to drop the 30lbs I gained in the last 2 years in grad school. Current goal is to drop an inch in my hips to fit in the wedding dress I ordered last week. Motivation, motivation, motivation.

Hello to al my fellow brides. My name Chrissy and I am getting married in 60 days....yes days. I've been engaged for 2 years and we decided in August to just do it. Our wedding date in Nov 30. Planning a wedding in 3 months has been easy and I love the fact that I don't have to wait a year say "IDO!" I have my dress, venue, flowers, DJ and photographer paid for. I'm looking forward to my special day but it will also be a sad day since my Mother will not be here physically. I know she will be there watching from above.

We have our honeymoon booked and set to leave for Puerto Rico on Dec. 28th. My fiancé is from PR and I'm super excited to be going for the first time.

Congratulations to all you brides and when you get stressed and feel like caving in and eating a half-gallon of ice cream don't! You will love your collarbone in your dress.

Hello, Brides! My name is Amy, I am 25 and am getting married on November 21st, 2013. We got engaged mid-July, so the wedding planning process has been fast. I am also a 1st grade teacher, so I don't have much time to work out. I've got to make it a priority but get discouraged when I realize how little time I have left. I want to lose about 13 pounds-- is this possible?

My fiance is amazing but has time to do the Insanity workout program. It's not fair how men can lose weight so easily- can I protest?? ;) Feel free to chat with me!

Hello Ladies! Elaine here... I'm engaged to my best friend, Andrew, as of Labor Day weekend and we're still working on setting a date and place (shooting for October 2014)! He proposed with a lovely Victorian era antique pearl ring surrounded by a halo of diamonds - it's unique and has a lot of character just like I do! I'm a long time "sparker" (been on variously since 2003) so I know how useful it is in helping meet goals. I've got about 15 pounds to lose in order to feel my best. I'd like to lose most of that BEFORE I go dress shopping in a couple of months. Trying to eat clean and exercise regularly. Thanks for your support ladies and congratulations to all of you!

Hi ladies,

I just got engaged on 8/31/13 to the love of my life and we're hoping to be married on 5/24/14. I still have about 20 pounds to lose and Spark People has really helped me. My fiance and I are both trying to make our lifestyle healthier and motivate his 13 year old daughter to be healthy as well. Feel free to visit my page and friend me. :)

Hi, everyone. My name is Lily and I'm getting married on November 15, 2014. I honestly didn't think I had much weight to lose until today - one of my bridesmaids is moving a few states away in a few weeks, so we went to look at dresses for her. Unsurprisingly, I wound up trying on a few for me as well, and found "The Dress". It fits, and I look and feel good in it, but I guess it was a little bit of a wake up call that I am bigger than I used to be, and bigger than I see most days in the mirror. I could stand to lose somewhere between 15 and 25 pounds. Instead of looking at myself in the mirror and in pictures and being shocked at the reflection, I want to look at myself on that day and have not a single negative thought going through my head. Good luck to everyone!

Hi Everyone! My name is Jes, I got engaged on July 21st of this year, and we're planning to get married over Columbus Day weekend of 2014. I'm currently at the heaviest I've ever been and have gained about 40 pounds in the last year. I'm looking to lose some weight, but more importantly; lose inches! I want to get stronger and toned! I'm hoping to find some help with the motivation to meet my goals here!

- Jes

Hi everyone! I'm Erin, a special education teacher in south TX and I'm getting married on November 8, 2014! I'm so excited because I've finally found the love of my life and I get to spend the rest of my life making amazing memories with her. My goal weight is 149 for the big day, but I'm taking it slow and doing it right! Good luck to all you beautiful brides out there! emoticon

Hello all! I'm getting married in Oct 2014 to my best friend :) I'm so excited!! I've struggled with my weight my entire life...I'm needing some serious breakthroughs because I'm a serious emotional/bored/stressed eater. I have a really hard time with self-control and sticking to programs. I'm also a hair and makeup artist and I specialize in working with brides if anyone has any questions!!

I'm looking to lose ultimately 60 pounds...but I'm at the point I'll take anything I can get. lol

I'll be starting Beachbody's Focus T25 program - it's a DVD collection that only takes 25 minutes to do a day..I have an insaaaane work life so I'm hoping doing completing this will send me in the right direction.

Thanks much - I'm brand new to Spark people so please add me and lmk if you have any adivce for me. :)

Good morning ladies! My name is Erin and I got engaged June 16th, 2013. We are planning our beach wedding for April 19th, 2014. I just found my wedding dress over the weekend and it seems like that may have been just the motivation I needed to get back on track. I'm looking to lose 20-30 pounds, but mostly trying to tone everything up so that I can look my best on the big day! I start pace coaching a 10k program tomorrow and hope that it is the push I need to get back in the swing of things again. I have been pretty sedentary for the past few months and I know that exercise is the key for me to lose weight. I'm really looking forward to hearing everyone's progress and cheering you all on. You are what keeps me motivated!

Hi everyone! I just got engaged in May at Yosemite National Park and am planning my wedding for October 2014 in Austin, TX. I am really excited to finally be wedding planning but I am terrified that I will not lose the weight! Currently I am within a few pounds of the heaviest I've ever been and I hate the way I feel. Hopefully I will be able to stay motivated this time!

First of all, Congrats to everyone!!!! :o) My name is Rhiannon and I just got engaged on Sunday - 7/7/13 - and am thinking about dates in October next year. As of right now, I've only lost appx. 5 lb.s from my highest weight, and am taking this step-by-step. I want to lose a total of 70 lbs. and primarily, it's not the number it's about getting healthy and fit. I'm focusing on smaller meals and healthier choices every day. I'm a gym bunny so I just need to add some weight trainging to combat the "skinny fat" of running. Yay!!!! (P.S. I don't know about anyone ese, but, I can't stop staring at my ring!!!!)

Hi to everyone and CONGRATULATIONS for your big day coming.
I'm getting married september 2014. I'm planning the big stuff for now (church ceremony and reception area) but i'm so excited to look for bulk flowers, weeding bands, catering, dj...WEDDING DRESS!!
I have a wonderful fiancé that accepts gracefully that i gained almost 25lbs since we met for the first time. He understands my will to loose the weight i need to feel GREAT for the first biggest day of our lives. So i'm postponing the dress trying before i get more comfortable in my skin.
I wish you all a great time planning your ceremony, your party and your transformation!!
Cheers! emoticon

Hi Everyone! I'm Jan-Marie and I got engaged on Friday! Our wedding isn't until 12-13-14 but I'm hoping to lose the last 50-60 pounds between now and next April! SP helped me lose the first 80. I told my boyfriend not to propose to me until I was under 200 pounds and that we couldn't get married until I was under 150. So here's to sticking to my goals.

Hi, i'm Amanda. I've been engaged for almost 5 yrs. In that time we've had a daughter (4) and a son (2). I was putting off the wedding so i could finish college, and now that i've gotten my PN diploma it's time! Wedding in July, with a 1940's vibe. So excited!

Hello, my name is Melissa. I have been engaged for over three years and my fiance and I are finally getting married this August! I started my weightloss campaign last August and have lost quite a bit of weight so far, but I still have a ways to go and I'm afraid that I have been slacking off for the last couple of months. I still have about 20 to 25 more pounds to lose and I'm determined to have them gone by the end of July/beginning of August.

I'm Tanya and I'm getting married in November 9, 2013! I already have my dress and it looks amazing! I'm currently at 145 lbs and I'm not necessarily looking to lose weight. My dress makes my hips, bum and stomach look amazing and it fits perfectly in that area so I don't want to shrink too much! If I stayed at my current weight and just toned up a bit I'd be happy. I've actually lost 25 lbs in the past year, and am close to my wedding goal weight of 140. I'm going to start being more active on Sparkpeople to help me reach my goal of no arm jiggle! Once the wedding is over, I'm hoping to drop another few pounds and get down to 125. I don't want to lose too much before the wedding though or my dress will need major alterations! I think that given my frame and what not 140 would be a healthy weight. I'd like to at least slim down though to my pre-university weight of 125 at some point.

Hello everyone!! My name is Shakira. I am a high school teacher (no stress there right?) emoticon in Maryland. I do love my job though, and students! emoticon I am getting married June 28...almost to the official 4 month count down...YIKES! My goal is to drop about 20 lbs before the big day, so I feel better in my dream dress, and to actually like myself in a bathing suit for our tropical honeymoon! emoticon I'm looking for support from people who know what this battle is like, along with planning a wedding, and to make some new friends! Looking forward to meeting some new faces! emoticon

Hello!! I'm Robin. Getting married October 5th. It was originally my fiance who wanted to lose weight (he still does) and knowing how he ticks, I figure that if I "work with him" it would encourage him. Well guess who became the more obsessive one? I know right? So here I am, excited to talk wedding happies, sads, and fitness happies and sads.

Hey Everyone! My name is Sarah! Me and my wonderful future husband are getting married July 5th! I am hoping to lose another 20 pounds before, maybe even a little more.

Hi everyone! My name is Amy and I am getting married May 11, 2013. This is a second marriage for both of us. We have been together for 4 years and have a 2 year old little girl. It took us forever to track down his ex and get her to sign the divorce papers (even though she left 9 years ago emoticon ).

We are doing the wedding ourselves in the backyard, no wedding party, just us and our daughter as the flower girl. We are going to do an early afternoon wedding and a cookout with our friends/family after.

One of my goals here is to get down to 130 before the wedding, so that when he sees me in my wrap dress his jaw drops. emoticon

Hello everyone! My name's Sarah, and my wedding is set for 9/21/2014. So I still have plenty of time. I've already lost 3 pounds this year! Yay! I have about 20 more pounds to go (I would like to get all the way down to 120). I aim to lose the weight by this summer, because I don't really want to go dress shopping until I am the size I want to be for the wedding.

Hi all. I've already started on my weight loss journey (lost 12kg/26lb) but have recently become engaged and want to keep up the good work (if I do say so myself!) in the lead up to my big day. I have a whole year (wedding date set for 25/1/2013) but a lot more to lose. Looking forward to working hard with the new motivation in mind!

You may delay, but time will not.

Hello ladies ...
I'm getting married on Summer Solstice this year (June 21st) and although I am determined not to stress myself over my weight I am looking to tone up and trim down if I can :D
My dress is able to go up and down a size so I'm ok on that front.
I am also looking to raise some money for charity this coming year by running a 5k, 10k and then a half marathon next spring :D

Hi all! I'm Jessica and am getting married in April, 2014 in Cancun. I'm also in a couple of weddings this summer. I bought one dress this past August, and it's too small (eek). I have about 6 1/2 months to drop the rest of th 20 pounds I've put on since May. But I'm off to a great start. I'll wait to shop for my dress until this summer/fall.

Remember... nothing tastes as good as healthy feels.
