I started my program the same day as you! Haha... I've used SP before, but I stopped like a year ago, and then went and put on like 30 lbs after my fiance proposed! So I'm back, and with all the wedding planning madness going on and me wanting to be the hottest I can be for my wedding night (as opposed to right now, which is honestly the heaviest and most out of shape I have EVER been), I could definitely use some buddies! Anyone who feels so inclined is welcome to add me =)

I'm new to Spark People and trying to get used to the diet portion of losing weight. I could use a buddy.

Hi everyone! I just signed up here and also wanted to start lose some pounds. I don't know how the buddy thing work, but would like to have someone to motivate and get motivated with!
Our wedding date is set to November 11,2011! Just had my gown fitting the other day (I'm not really happy with the measurements LOL) that is why I am planning to lose some inches and get toned :)

Hello, ladies, I need some support and would love to give some, I just signed up with Spark. We are undecided was thinking of September 2011 because of my mom's sickness, but I official date is June 16 2012.

I am doing Shape Up-6 month wedding day challenge as well as focusing on toning with Pilates. My goal is to tone up, not really focused on the weight, I will be tracking my inches. I am not dieting just eating a Whole Foods diet.

Hi Everyone! My name is Alex and I am getting married February 2012, too. I would love some Bride-to-Be Spark Buddies to help motivate each other. I am also planning an out of town wedding (well, out of country really!) and so I am trying to get onto things nice and early.

Hi, getting married february 2012.
The plan was to do it this summer but due to change of plans we desided to do it in february.

So I've bought my weddingdress last february.. BIG mistake, I had allready lost a lot of weight and was determinded not to gain it back, but i did and now I can't get in to my dress. Buying a new one is out of the question, so I've joined spark people in hopes of getting back in shape.

Btw; lookign for sparkfriends to keep me motivated! emoticon

@Cchelsey6 - Wow, don't fret so much. All the dresses are a size or two too small - even on stick figure girls. Chill and just go have fun. As long as you dont try anything in the shape of a tent on, you'll look great. The dresses are designed that way! :)

Hello! I'm Chelsey, my fiance and I are getting married Oct 23, 2011. I live in Wisconsin and due to the winter weather, as every year, I gained weight. Now I have to go try on wedding dresses in 3 weeks. Blah! When I should actually be really excited about this, why am I dreading so much? I don't wear dresses as it is, I'm a jeans girl. Being bigger I am so worried I won't find something that doesn't make me look like I'm wearing a tent. Has anyone else gone dress shopping? How was your experience?

I'm getting married in June and hit a "plateau." I put it in quotes because while the scale has not budged, I'm starting to see some muscle definition and my clothes are getting slightly looser. Don't give up! Do a couple days of vegetarian or re-evaluate how much you're REALLY eating. Are you carbs really whole grain? Eat vitamins and some fiber pills. That kind of thing might help push you off your stuck number.

we were supposed to have a 11-11-11 wedding but we want to start a family soon. our date is 4-30-11 and im completely stressed. we were gonna have a backyard wedding at his parents but.. as the RSVPs started to roll in my fiance and i were getting worried. There place is too small to accomidate 40-60 people! so after insisting and insisting they could handle it, i got the call earlier this week that they cant have it there... so i am a month and a half away from my wedding and now need to find a venue 300 miles away from my home in a state i know nothing about ... O.o i could definately use some spark buddys to help destress me and keep me motivated on achieving my weightloss goal and not get off track due to details of the wedding

Any and all friends would be welcome!
Good luck everyone with your goals

My name is Christina and I am getting married on May 5th, 2012. I am a very early planner so I've got quite a bit done. I am here because I have a dress that no longer fits and I refuse to buy any other dress, including a bigger size. I CAN and WILL do this!

Hi I'm Nicky. I have a ways to go yet, looking to get married fall 2012. I haven't even started planning yet, I have no clue where to begin! It all seems so overwhelming but thankfully I still have quite some time. If anyone wants to friend me I am normally on here a bit and love to encourage others and vice versa.

Hi my name is Melissa. I totally understand how you feel. I am getting married in July, and we are getting married out of town. So planning an out of town wedding sure has turned out to be stressfull! Good luck with your planning!

Aw, congrats! I was a May bride, too - it's a great month to get married! You're really in the home stretch now. I remember how quickly the last 3 months flew by, but despite the stress, they'll be really fun and exciting! :)

I know I saw it and wanted one too! You go to edit my sparkpage and its all the way at the bottom. Its called a weight ticker I think!

So how long have you been on this site?
