Picked up the cousin's flower girl dress for my daughter to wear for our "dress" photo last weekend, getting excited. Maybe a hair cut is in order?

Well, I didn't try on the dress last weekend, but I did wear my bridal shower dress to my daughter's preschool graduation. I think next months pictures are on!

Are you getting ready to set a date to try on that dress yet?

My 10th anniversary is July 13th and I hope to put my daughter in a flower girl dress and take pictures to mark the date. She will be too tall for the dress. I will be at weight but not sure if the shape is the same overall. But it is going to be fun! I'll try and post some pictures!

What will motivate you to try your dress on?

Those are great goals! I'm trying to figure out where to go right now. I work out 6 days/week and track every bit. I'm seriously plateaued, and need help! I upped my calories to match my workouts, and I believe I have a healthy balance there. I've mixed things up, too. sigh. I was really hoping that this challenge would give me incentive, but I've discovered that I already have that! I'm just "stuck."

Anyway, the main goal of this challenge sure is a fun one! I look forward to getting to know you :-)

Hey all. I think I was a little too skinny for me at my wedding but I'd love to get even half way there. Of course, not all in one month.

Aren't there any goals for this team? What are yours? I want to do 30 minutes of exercise 6 times a week and track my food.

Hi Ladies!

I was married two years ago, and my wedding dress is still hanging in plain sight. I was literally JUST thinking this morning that wouldn't it be great to be able to put it on and have it fall right off? I have gained since my wedding, even though I wasn't at my ideal weight on my wedding day, I was about 30 pounds lighter. I really would love to be able to wear it again, and do one of those "Rock the Dress" photo shoots. I think that would be so much fun. I love the idea of this challenge!

Good luck everyone! I look forward to getting to know all of you.

Good luck, ladies!! Let's have some fun!

Hey, there isn't anything to do at the Redbook website, is there? It's just tips, right? I get my head so into SP, that I have a hard time with the word "challenge" outside of SP! ;-)

I think this is a really cool idea.. I have already used my wedding dress as a point in time I remembered what I weighed. After a year of eating better and only mild exercise I can say I can wear my wedding rings and fit into the dress. I have been thinking about celebrating with a Photo Shoot of me in my dress and my 5 yr old daughter in the cousins flower girl dress....

I also have several friends who met after their weddings and we have often talked about getting together to watch each others wedding videos.... maybe we should all wear the dress too!
