BELLABANANAS My wedding is less than 3 weeks away! June 15th. There are a few little details left to work on but the last week or two has been very productive for us. We had a great discussion with our florist today (who knew flowers were so expensive). When is your date? How are the plans? Our planning has been rather smooth sailing. Just booked our rooms for the honeymoon. So ready for a vacation. How about you?

LMPARDUE : Cake stands? What are you doing for your cake? I was thinking of purchasing a couple smaller cakes for display and then getting a half sheet cake for behind the scenes. So what are you doing with your cake stands? What sort of display?

I am doing well with my planning. Bits and pieces are slowly coming together. There are a few more details for me to do before June (but some things are just going to have to wait until the school year is over in May).

Hey Knotties!! I am stopping by to introduce myself to the group. My name is Courtney and my wedding date is on June 6, 2012 in the beautiful city of Las Vegas. We changed our wedding to a destination wedding and even though the planning is fun it is definitely stressful to get it started. I plan on losing weight to look amazing in my dress on that particular day.

Hey Knotties!

Just wanted to introduce myself and let everyone know I am a Team Leader for this group. My name is Alisa and I'm actually not currently getting married, although that is one of my biggest goals! I'm in a great relationship right now and when we are ready, I want to say yes to the dress of my dreams!

You won't lose weight any faster if you Stop Trying!- Me

What you are doing, may you keep on doing and do not stop.
But with swiftness, agility, and unswerving feet, may you go forward with joy and security, knowing that you are on the path of wisdom and happiness.
Believe nothing, and agree with nothing that will turn you away from this commitment.

emoticon Knotties! My wedding plans are coming along FANTASTIC; and so are my workouts; I missed my training session this morning because I had no idea that I was scheduled; so I am heading to the gym this afternoon to do just arms and core; excluding the crunches this will help me avoid doing anything requiring the use of my back as I wrenched it on Monday this week. emoticon

Hey Foxy,

There will always be times where it's gonna be less than perfect. Just know that we're not perfect at all. We'll have good days and bad days. It's learning from your mistakes that will make you stronger and more successful! emoticon

Hello Pachicha! I became engaged on April Fool's Day this year and that was my wake up call!

I had a bridal fitting right off the bat to motivate
myself as to what I do not want to look like on my Wedding day, Apil 1, 2012. To my horror, I am only 5' tall, I was trying on dresses that were 10, my prom dresses were size 4!

Needless to say, that is my goal Dress size. I did not even know of SparkPeople until the end of July when I joined immediately.

I realized the since my known heaviest on 1/30 at 145.5, I have lost 16.1 lbs so far!

I have *made myself* into a morning workout person, I used to be the worst morning person ever. I track my nutrition and fitness pretty much daily and I am 1000% more consious of my food choices and what I am putting into my body.

I also have gotten my sister, my MOH, on board so we motivate each other andddd an old friend from High School who I hadn't seen in 5 years!

It feels great knowing I can motivate other people. Last week I reached my first personal fitness goal, to break into the 120's annnddd I made it to my last belt loop!

I did eat a ton of junk yesterday unfortunately so I really hope that I did not just back step into the 130's in one day!
Crap! emoticon

Thanks NikeRunner! I just wanted to update you that I had a miscarriage so no more baby :( But I will try again soon.

When it comes to running, start slow. Add one mile each week. You'll have more energy and stamina and your body will get used to the running.
Good luck!

Pachicha - Congratulations on your pregnancy! That's great news!

I'm really trying to get back into running...I've had insomnia for the last 3 months, and it's been next to impossible for me to run at all...I just run out of gas...and have no energy. I'm starting to feel a little better, so I'm working with a personal trainer. I have to work hard to get back into it!

Update: Not only did I ran 80 miles on the month of July, but I ran more than 100! Around 102 actually! Being on vacation really helps. I will have to tone down my running though because.............I'm pregnant!

I got my birthday cake today and I hope that it's not a carrot cake; I was messed up last year and if it is carrot cake I am not getting another cake at my store EVER again,I hate when they insult you like that.

I have stuck with mine; I don't think of them as resolutions I think of them as goals; and I am just 1 lb. from my next goal on the scale as I am now 181 this morning;I was told to weigh on a daily basis after I got out of the hospital although I think it is misleading sometimes.

Everyone keep in mind, those of you who are waiting to go try on dresses until you lose a few (I was one too)...
Most bridal shops carry sample dresses only, meaning that your dress will have to be ordered. That takes 12-16 weeks from most manufacturers, and then unless the place you purchase from does super fast alterations allow 2 months for that. So a minimum of 5 months.
My wedding is in June and I've been told by numerous NYC dress shops and consultants that I should buy before Jan.1 to be sure it is ready in time with plenty of time for alterations (especially if will need realterations due to lost weight).
And every single consultant I've spoken too said any wedding dress can be taken in up to 5 sizes for sure and they were experienced consultants at both Kleinfeld and Pronovias.
Good luck all, I'll be shopping for mine over the holidays!

Doing great! Has anyone started shopping yet? For the first time in years, I did not go shopping on Black Friday! Trying to save $$ and there really wasn't anything motivating me to buy anyways.

Happy Holidays!

It's true. I made the mistake of buying my dress and I then lost close to 30 lbs afterwards. My seamstress was going to kill me! Fortunately, she was able to take it in, but I wouldn't recommend it!

Something I found out while shopping for my dress recently: most of them can only be altered 3 inches down in any one place (2 sizes). Something to keep in mind if any of you plan on dropping more than a few sizes before your wedding . . .

Hey FMoeller! Are you using the food intake track system that Sparkpeople has available? How are your workouts? Are they intensive? What do they focus on? Cardio/Weight training?

Make sure you emphasize on cardio first and incorporate a little weight training. As time goes, you should increase the weight training and intensify on your cardio. Always keep your body guessing. If you keep doing the same routine over and over you'll eventually hit a plateau. (I've done that quite a few times!)

Good luck!

Hi, I am trying to lose quite a bit of weight before my wedding, but I am not doing quite as well as I hoped. I am working out every day for an hour and watching my food intake more, but I still have only lost a pound. Suggestions?

Just one day at a time. :) Just one day at a time.

Congrats on meeting your goal!!!! It must be so exciting!! Now it's all about maintaining the weight, which can be almost as difficult and losing it. I'm so happy for you! I have 5 more lbs to go :)




Hi Ashley and Wendy,

Thanks for the STD kudos! :)
I think that helping relatives and friends for their weddings is as far as I would go. Being a wedding coordinator means that you have to deal with bridezillas: brides who will never be satisfied no matter how hard you searched and worked.

I loved your solution for the Save the Date's, Pachica. So clever and crafty! ^_^

I've missed out on a lot of wedding shows, although I do catch Whose Wedding occasionally.

Surprisingly, Chris enjoys watching these with me as well. :)

I agree Wendy! I used to watch most of these shows when I was planning my wedding. I'm embarrased to say that I have watched bridezillas and platinum weddings even after I got married!!! I help out my relatives who are planning weddings. I guess you can say I found a love for weddings! Maybe after I retire, I'll become a wedding coordinator! lol! j/k :)

I am obsesssed with watching wedding shows. Along with WE I also watch "Whose Wedding" on Style and "WEdding SOS" on FLN. My fiance wants to have an intervention because I watch so much. Though I think that it is a great way to get ideas.

Hi Armigrrl!

I went online to check out the STDs, but since I needed a lot of them, I decided to do my own (because it was too expensive to buy them online.)

All you need is a trip to Staples/office max

1. Buy photo paper (glossy is fine) Any brand you like
2. Buy business card magnets (if this becomes hard to find, just ask any clerk in the store, they're usually next to business documents, etc)

3. On your computer create either through power point, microsoft word or photoshoppe - whichever you're most familiar with ---plug in a picture of you and your fiance, with the date. Personalize however you want, any font, color, background, etc.

Print, cut the pics and insert them on the magnets---it's easy to put on because the magnets are adhesive, no need for glue or tape!

Ours looked professional and we loved them!

total cost: about $50 (We made 200 magnets)

I wish I had! I thought my STD's (saying that still makes me giggle) would go out much earlier, but my mother ended up sending them out this week, so the timing would've been perfect. Wedding's in august and this is the STD: www.agiftfulheart.com/hydrangea_blue

Plans are coming along great. With six months to go all we need to do is get the girls dresses, tuxes, favors and flowers. All the ideas are there but not the purchases. We have our meetings with florist phtographer and planner end of January.

I love looking around the knot for photos and seeing other people's ideas, and I've searched the local boards for specific things, but I don't visit them regularly. The NJ knotties seem kind of mean, haha! I guess I've been away from home for too long (I live in VA now) - I've lost my jersey edge.

Welcome to the Knottie Team! It's nice to know that you're getting financial help from your mom, but as you know, it comes with its disadvantages. Don't be afraid to voice your opinion, it is YOUR wedding, after all.

Good luck in reaching your weight loss goals and don't stress out too much. Do you go to the knot.com frequently? This site really helped me plan everything on time, and my local boards helped me out too :)

Thanks! The planning is going alright. It's more stressful than I imagined because I had no idea my mother would be so involved / controlling / awkward about the whole thing. We have very different tastes - I would have preferred a nice bed & breakfast at the beach, and she wants something big & super fancy. I think we found a nice compromise :) Can't complain too much because she's paying for a lot of it, haha.

How about you? When's your wedding?

Hey girls! Do you have a long holiday gift list? I do! My family is really big, and we always give everyone a gift (for me, that's more than 30 people!!!) I can't afford to give them expensive gifts, so every year I get creative.

I buy months before (like Bath and Body works and Victoria Secret semi annual sales),put them away in the closet until it's time to wrap them up! They're great gifts, but I end up spending a small fraction of the price :)

Ok, I'm feeling much better now, and I have great news! I'm down to 123!!! Last time I was 123 was October of 2007. This is my lowest weight of the year!

It's not close to my lowest weight of 2007 (115) but I'm still happy! emoticon

Wow! I have been sick for the last seven days! I even took a day off from work! It's been a miserable week in terms of working out! :( I haven't been able to exercise this whole week :(!!!!!

That makes me really upset! I don't remember taking a whole week off in a really really long time! I'm feeling a little bit better tonight, so I hope I can pick up my game starting tomorrow!
