I can't wait to see pictures of you in the wedding dress. You are doing an amazing job on the weight loss.

Thank you guys for the support :) Yes the guys will be wearing tails and prolly tophats. I'm having the wedding at Sunset Harbor Resort in Willis, Tx. It's beauitful and on Lake Conroe with a beautiful view. I wanted outdoor, but the weather has been so unpredictable (and in TX it gets soooo hot) so I choose the Resort b/c they have floor to ceiling windows and I get to use the deck, but my florist is awesome so the entire inside is being decorated with moss, ivy, vines, flowers, and butterflies (not real ones :)). It took me over 6 months to find the perfect dress for me. And then when I found it, I had to do a silent bid for it. So glad I won it :D And I already incorporated readings in from Jane Eyre and a few from Austen's works too.

Again thanks for all the support and interest. You guys rock!!!! And I am definitely a DONE girl:D emoticon

Congrats on the weight loss so far!

I love Jane Eyre, too. That was one of the few books I have read that made me so upset that I had to put it down for a few weeks (when you learn a certain Mr. is already married). I was SO mad! Jane Eyre and Pride and Prejudice are on my yearly re-read list.

Wher in Houston are you having the wedding (if that's not too personal)? I'm from Houston, too, and your wedding sounds like it's gonna be gorgeous! April will be the perfect time for a garden wedding.

I, and only I, can make this happen!
No one can exercise for me.
No one is going to spoon feed me the right foods.
No one is going to love me more than I love myself.
And no one is going to do for me, what only I can do for myself.

Hi Mandy, First off, CONGRATS on getting married! I LOVE the idea of a Victorian wedding. In fact, should I ever get married, I just may steal the idea! Are the men wearing tails? Also, congrats on the dress! I don't think a vintage dress is easy to find, is it? Lastly, BIG CONGRATS on your weight loss so far! The DONE girls are an AWESOME bunch with loads of support and I know you'll be into that size 10 before you know it!!

That's awesome! Three pounds in a week is a great start. Just remember that you can't expect those results all the time and even a 1 pound loss is great. I love theme wedding! Yours sounds like it is going to be so much fun! I'm a history buff and in addition love the time period of Jane Austen. Your wedding will be magical I'm sure. Make sure to post your wedding pictures next year for use to oooo and awww over. Good luck!

It's only 10 am here in Houston, but this has turned out to be a great day so far and I wanted to share. So my wedding is April 11, 2009 and I am having a eco/garden/green wedding with huge inspiration from Jane Eyre (my favorite novel of all time) and Jane Austen (think Pride and Prejudice) periods in time. So Victorian/garden/eco-green. Well my future mother-in-law and me found this beautiful replica vintage Victorian dress. It was perfect, so she put a bid on it and we found out today that we won it. It's a size 10, but one really can't be picky when shopping for vintage dresses :P Anyways, I'm really excited about it and I'm in a 14 and on my way down. If i hit my goal of 122, the dress will have to be altered a little, but that's ok I don't really mind :D (I'm short too so I'm going to have to take a lot of length off no matter what)

Also, for a challenge in another group the goal is to lose 10lbs for this month. I am happy to report (Tuesday's being the weigh in day) that I'm at 181.4lbs...and I just joined SP last Sunday at 185. I'm psyched at the moment. That's a loss of 3.6lbs :D

And thank you guys for making me so welcome with all the comments posted on my sparkpage. I'm really loving this group. And I love the motto. I'm going to try to post the done photo later this evening :) Thanks everyone and look forward to journeying with everyone as we strive to attain our goals. emoticon emoticon
