Thank you too!! I'm sure that dress does fit but it's just one of them things I'm not quite sure if I'm ready to try it on nor do I have the time too!! But I will get to that point all in time!!

Congratulations on your progress!! That's wonderful! I'll bet your dress does fit already!!!

I'm not sure how close I am to my dress, but I have a wedding to go to on the same day as you and I'd like to look good for it, too. :-) I've definitely dropped fat and gained muscle, along with losing another pants size, so we'll see!

I can honestly say things are going great for me. I haven't attempted to try on my wedding dress yet, but plan too in the near future. I'm back down into a size 5 jeans & some jeans are 3/4 so I know that wedding dress has to fit, it just has too!! emoticon
But I also know I have still a little bit more to loose. I know since Jan I have lost 12 but have also gained lots & lots of muscle tone, something I've never had before. I hope the next 2 weeks continue to be good to me so when June 2 rolls around for my Cousin's wedding I will blow my families minds. Good luck to everyone, hope everyone is having the same luck has I have had.

Congratulations to you both!!! This is so exciting!

I'm not all that close, but I've come so far and built so much muscle that I'm okay with my progress. :-) Trying on my dress is definitely still my goal, but I think I need to rethink my deadline.
Anyway, congratulations again to you both on your fabulous progress!!

I don't have but 3 more lbs to loose!! YAY then I reach my goal, i'm thinking though I will still have some more to loose once I get there but maybe not?! Can't believe how close I am to reaching my goal, didn't think the last 10 lbs would be this easy!!!

I'm pleased with how things are going for me. I've only lost 8 lbs since the 1st of the yr but that's ok because I didn't have a whole lot to loose. What I'm excited about are the inches I've lost. I have a goal in mind for the whole year but would like to loose maybe 2 more pounds between now and June 6 for the wedding I'm in. But for the most part I am pleased with everything. Will probably try that dress on closer to the end of May. I prob could get some what in it now but I dont think completely. so time will only tell.

Good luck everyone!!!

Still progressing a few pounds a month... and FINALLY lost a half an inch at the waist! Unfortunately, I can not claim to be motivated to exercise lately. If it wasn't for my daughter's swimming lessions I wouldn't even be making it to the gym.

Pounds-wise, I'm not too excited. But I've lost 4.5" in the last 4 weeks, so I'm not complaining! I've lost 3 lbs after a very long weight-loss plateau, so things are going well. :-)

Way to go on being in your last 10, Cherbear!!

I haven't lost much weight since the beginning of the year only 6 lbs, however I've lost a total of like 5 in all over, so I'm happy with that!! I do know i'm within that last stubborn 10 lbs of weight needing to be lost. So I've decided not to beat myself up if it takes me all yr to get rid of the next 7 lbs. I'm proud of myself for getting as far as I have with my workouts!! Hope everyone else is pleased with their progress!!!

Got some of that gain off, but not all. Right now my number one is caring for a dying family member. Stress = weight gain for me even if I am eating exactly right. Why does my body hate me so?

Starting http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/training-program.asp?p=6 for March and April. Anyone else changing up their exercise plans?

emoticonVLKSHA, I've done that before! Talk about total panic - to be trying on Jr sizes and think "what on earth??"

Nice job on the loss, CHERBEAR7997!

I've finally began losing again - I think. Either way, I'm definitely my clothes are definitely looser. I just got over a nasty bug and was relieved that I was able to jump right back into my fitness efforts!

Good luck, everyone!

So far as of today I'm doing very well, at least I'm pleased with it. I have lost 6 lbs since the first of the year. I am getting ready to start level 3 of Jillian's 30 Day Shred. I'm totally excited at this rate I'll be ready for my cousin's wedding and should for sure fit into my wedding dress before our 10 yr anniversary on 10/5. Totally loving how I feel and can't wait to see how I feel come June!!! Good luck to everyone!!

I haven't been sleeping and it's that time of the month. I gained 5 lbs in 3 days. :-( I am hoping it is all water weight and it will go away but it has me so upset because I am exercising every day, more than in January, and counting my calories (except for Saturday night). Maybe one night can ruin everything. :-( Hope you all are doing better.

Lost 7 pounds in January, but a sinus infection shot this week's plan. Hoping that the 12 hours of sleep last night will revive the desire to move it.....

Had to buy a new swim suit too....I was a little stressed when I couldn't pull the top up in the size I was sure would fit, until I figured out they were teen's sized not women's... Ah, I remember when I had no chest and no fat arms....

How is everyone doing with their challenge to fit back in their wedding dresses? I have lost 1.4 lbs since I signed up for this challenge. I still have a long way to go but this is a start.
