I did some yoga last night and that was it. emoticon I also went over my calorie limit, but only about 100 calories over. I'm not beating myself up over it. Doing that gets me nowhere.

I hope everyone has a great day! emoticon

We had spoken a few times via email before speaking on the phone. Keep in mind I am planning my wedding 6 hours away from where it is. So we spoke on the phone and she offered almost all of the info without me aasking questions. She also asked a lot of detail questions of the wedding and plans so far. We asked a couple questions and made sure to convey style/pics that were important to us. She then emailed me a specialized offer with a suggested time schedule for the day.

Crazygrad - that's so exciting you've found (and like!) your photographer. I haven't begun searching yet and am afraid that I won't find someone I click with. Did you come up with a series of questions for them or did they bring a lot of information to your meeting?

Hi Ladies!

It's so great to see that people are on track and working hard. Also that plans are coming together. I ordered the flower girl dresses yesterday and I found a deal on Living Social last week and received in the mail yesterday all the jewelry for my girls. I got $1000 worth of jewelry for $100! I also talked to the wedding photographer on Wednesday and we really hit it off. It's exciting when things come together.

Cake testing....not sure if I will be able to decide on a flavor. I might have to leave that to my fiance. We'll be having a cake and cupcakes. Maybe I'll just have a little bit of everything. emoticon emoticon

That scale is not my friend. Gotta keep focused on the inches.

Super_ace115 that is awesome about your cake! Cakes are soo expensive. I think we have found our perfect one just have to get the order in. It is a vanilla cake with hazelnut vanilla spread filling with white smooth frosting, ribbon and a porcelin topper and pearl garland. Love Love Love the idea emoticon

Keep your head up! I am a lot like you, whenever I start lifting any sort of weights, I build muscle super fast and my weight always jumps up. I know it is so frustrating!!! Just know that you ARE losing fat, slimming down, and getting stronger, regardless of what the scale is telling you.

I put in alot of cardio this week! Over 1400 calories burnt and my intake was within my goal from SP. I have gone up and stayed up 2lbs since Oct 1st. The last two weeks I've worked on my calories and exercise and no positive results. I build muscle fast because I have PCOS, but I just feel discouraged because it seems like a gain half a pound for every mile I walk and I've been walking at least 3 miles every day. And my miles are pretty fast. I can easily walk 3 miles in 50 minutes while having a full conversation. Only wish I was lighter so I felt like running.

Need some words from the wise emoticon emoticon

Well, i'm not a bride to be anymore! The wedding was July 21. I'd ordered my dress one size too small (intentionally) and it fit like a dream on the day! 23 lbs and 1 dress size down in 5 months. I can't find a thing in the photos to complain about. emoticon

I break it up into smaller sessions. 20 minutes before work, 20 minutes after work, 20 minutes later in the evening. It helps not feel like such a time commitment plus I read that your metabolism gets a post-workout boost each time you exercise so working out throughout the day keeps your metabolism burning all day long.

HELP!

I just recently joined this group and am having trouble managing time. Between work and doing wedding stuff after work (we only have about 2 months to plan the wedding), I hardly have time to work out as much as I wish. I even visited gyms to join but I don't seem to get organized just yet!

How have you girls done it?

Totally understand that, Jslice! A friend of mine got engaged about 2 months before I did. She hadn't done ANYTHING to plan, including choosing a date. My fiancee and I knew what we wanted, so we set our date right away and began making plans. Once she saw I was going full force, she set her date to 2 months after mine - and we share a lot of the same bridal party. Talk about a lot of pressure on them!

So even though I feel bad for getting frustrated with her, like you with your brother, I think it's a little normal. You want it to be your special day not having to deal with everything else as well. But I agree with Keelie, it'll only take away what you let it. =) Good luck!!

Jslice don't beat yourself up, I think that is a natural reaction. You may not want to go around flaunting those feelings but having them isn't a crime. It will only take away from your day what you let it. emoticon

hmmm... I'm trying not be annoyed, but my little brother just got engaged last night. I waited 6 years because my fiance was unemployed off-an-on, but now my brother's planning his wedding 2 months after mine... seriously mad at myself for being so whiney...

Busy wedding week! My date is June 1st so I'm slowly working through all the details. Yesterday we chose the tuxes for the guys and got our flower girl basket. Tonight we're doing our food tasting to choose our menu - one of the things I've been most looking forward too! And finally, Thursday we're meeting with our cousin who is so graciously making our cake. Time to finalize the design and pick some flavors so she can have a plan in place. I'm getting so excited!!!

Hi all,
I'm not getting married until april '14, so I feel like I have to set mini-goals to keep me motivated... my ultimate goal is to lose about 3 dress sizes (40 or so pounds)... suggestions are welcome :)

hello everyone!

sorry didn't read down.... This is the year! we've set the date for Nov. 9th. I am now feeling a lot better so I can start taking walks again. I have to start again at my heaviest but I know I can do it so I will.
Let's see how fast I can go back to where I was a year ago.

Today was crazy. I couldn't sleep last night, so after about three hours of sleep, I woke up at 3:30 to go to my shipment job at 4:30 am. Almost right after, I fell asleep and slept til about 3. Good two hour workout at the gym, and now it's time for me to headto bed again since I have to get up at 6. Really hope I can actually get to sleep this time.

Intense workout today! 30 minutes on the cybex, 15 on the treadmill, then a 1 hour barbell strength class. I was intimidated by the barbell class at first, but I love it now. So if there's a workout or class you are interested in but unsure about, go for it! The worst that can happen is you realize you need to work up to that level before trying the class again.

Shell- I kind of feel the same way as you do. It is frustrating for sure. I hope your fitting went well today. My lady told me next week I'll have to come back and she may have to tkae my dress in if I lose weight this week and then I'll have to stay the same for sure after that. So I'm still plugging away this week and we'll see what happens.

Brittled-I'm feeling a bit stressed too, but I'm kind of a control freak and don't like turning over anything to my mom to do. We don't have the same taste so I guess I don't trust her with things haha. I'm definitely going to keep on with weight loss too after the wedding. It is so stressful right now it's almost impossible to lose weight!

I won't be able to reach my "ultimate" goal by my wedding, but a small goal I had is still attainable, so I'll take it. Hopefully I get there, have 3.5 weeks left! My fiance and I have already set a fitness goal for after the wedding. We both want to work on being able to "see some abs" by Christmas, haha. I haven't been able to do that since he and I started dating 4 years ago! So, it will be a tough goal, but I'm looking forward to doing it with him...

and yes SGILGER6... I am feeling very stressed! I can not believe how much I have to get done in the next 3 weeks, its just getting crazy! Luckily my mom has really stepped up to help and its kinda fun, even though its absolutely insane!

SGILBER6- I am having a problem with my weight loss coming to a stand still. It is frustrating! I didn't meet my goal weight by my goal date. And now I feel like I can't try to reach my goal until after the wedding because I have to fit into my dress! Good luck with your fitting, mine is on the 28th of this month!

As an update, I have really been watching my diet. No carbs/grains and only protein and veggies after 2pm, only the occasional small piece of chocolate for a treat, tons of water, tons of salad. Limited sugar. But today I gained 1.5 lbs. My final dress fitting is 5 days away and in that time I have 2 lunches out and one wedding. What do I do? Is anyone else this stressed? Help! LOL emoticon

Awesome Brittled! Wow, I don't know if I could even run 5 mi. I'm thinking of training for a half-marathon after the wedding though. Why stop at the wedding for weight loss?? I also want to do a 30 day yoga challenge (75 mins power yoga every day), but for now it's cardio everyday and strength training twice a week. I've really changed up my diet this week too- it's way more healthy and I'm focusing more on quality food and less on just calories.

I agree this is soo motivating!

SHELL1400_85 and SGILBER6, my dress fitting is August 29! Fun stuff! My wedding is 30 days from today, so CRAZY! I have also upped my cardio, but not to twice a day... I went from running 5 mi 3 times a week to 7.5 miles 3 times a week. And I'm trying to get strength in on the days in between, want my arms to look a little toned! Final stretch is here, YAY US!

Good luck to you guys, this has been so motivating and fun! I can't wait for the next 30 days! :)

My fitting is the day before yours Shell- August 27th. There's 12 days left for me and 13 for you, so that's almost 2 weeks. Definitely room to lose at least a pound or so. My trainer gave me specific eating instructions today and told me to start focusing mostly on cardio and try to do it twice a day. Good luck!

My dress fitting is coming up soon! The 28th of August. I am hopeful that I can shed a few more pounds before then. After that my challenge will be to maintain the same weight until after my wedding, October 13th. I am a little disappointed that I will not be hitting my goal weight by my fitting but I am still happy with everything I have accomplished. Getting so excited for the big day, time is going by fast and I still have lots to do!

I forgot how much movement the kinect actually requires...lol. Last night we played various games, for about 4 hours...and today, the fiance and I are feeling it. We downloaded a trial version of the Zumba game, and he tried it before me, so I'm still unsure if I want to buy it, I will try it tonight after the live spark meeting and will let everyone know what I think.

I don't know about Zumba for XBox, but I went to a Zumba class a few times last fall and LOVED it! If it hadn't been at 5:30 right when I was wanting dinner every night I would have gone more regularly... But, dinner won out and I only made the class a few times, haha. I would like to do something like that, but I'm always afraid my workout inside will disturb the neighbors right below me :( Luckily, the gym is only about 3 blocks away from where I will be living with my fiance after the wedding, so I won't have any excuses to use about not going!

Sorry you received such crappy news from your bridesmaid...maybe things will turn around for you and she will realize it's one day, for you and will come to your shower. Great job on avoiding a bucket of ice cream, and staying in your calorie range. I understand about not feeling a workout some days. I've been feeling that way a lot lately, but we just got another xbox and kinect (first ones broke), yesterday for $99, so I think I should be able to get back on track with that, it helped so much last time. Maybe on Friday, I will break down and buy Zumba for it...haven't decided yet though. Keep your chin up, things will get better soon. emoticon

Feeling really depressed today. One of my bridesmaids said she couldn't make it to my shower this weekend because she needed to go visit her dad in the hospital... I was TOTALLY ok with her doing that. No hard feelings at all, family comes first. But, today she told me that she is visiting her dad Thursday and Friday, and going to see a guy Saturday and Sunday... My shower is Sunday afternoon... I think she forgot about the shower, but then remembered after telling me her plan changes... She said she felt bad, but didn't offer to not go see the guy and come to the shower... Sigh... I really thought I meant more to my friends! Oh well, guess its good to find out who my real friends are... I didn't work out this morning bc of a bout of vertigo, and this evening I was feeling too drained and depressed. I hate that I let something keep me from being who I want to be. Better luck tomorrow. I did manage to stay in my calorie range and not down a bucket of ice cream... Guess I can put that in the win column.

Thanks! I replied on here a few days ago, but just realized it didn't post! Odd... Anyhow, I know what you mean, only 45 days! So crazy. There seems to be an infinite number of things to get done. To top it off, the deer ate my lilies last night! I hope they will be blooming again in 7 weeks, but you never know! I about died when I saw them this morning. I have several different types of day lilies planted in "the wedding place" reds, oranges, and yellows that all bloom late summer/fall. I'm so excited about them, but didn't realize how hard it was going to be to keep the deer away from them! I had a radio set up in the trees to play at night to scare the deer way, I didn't realize how effectively it was working until it quit working two nights ago... Now, lilies... GONE! So, i'm investing in deer repellent and getting my radio up and working again!

Your wedding sounds like it will be beautiful! I have always wanted a fall wedding too. I'm getting nervous for the big day though! There is still so much to think about and it's taking up a lot of my time! And when you add in my workouts, that leave almost no time for actual work (I'm a grad student so I have the most flexible work schedule ever).
