Congratulations!! I also got engaged in August and we chose October 1st, 2011 as our wedding date! My fiance is in great shape, but I would like to loose 60 lbs. I think its great that you and your fiance are doing this together! Before and after photos are a great idea! I think I am going to use that idea too and take a before picture! I hope that we will be able to keep in touch throughout our journey and be able to help motivate eachother!! Best of luck!

my goal is to be able to wear a bikini (and look good!) on our honeymoon as well. I'm not really going to focus on numbers - it's all about how I look and feel.

Wow you sound a lot like me! I got engaged in August and our wedding is 10/15/11.

My fiance and I are joining the gym tomorrow. We sat down and figured out a great plan so we can keep each other on track.

Best of luck to you both.

Congrats! My fiance and I are getting married next November! We also just joined a gym. We have about 100lbs to lose to be the weight we would like to be! I am not counting on that much loss, but would like to lose about 50 or 75. Good Luck!

Congratulations! My fiance and I are trying to pick our wedding day for next October as well :-). We both have 30lbs each that we're striving to work off at the gym ourselves.

Something that really helps me when starting out a new plan is taking things gradually. Like I started logging everything I ate for 15 days and just added exercise. I love food, I hate giving it up. I needed a good reason.

Well, after seeing the amount of empty non-nutritional calories I was eating, it was pretty easy to readjust the daily menu with the mindset of "that hour on the elliptical just counted a WHOLE LOT MORE since I didn't have that glass of beer."

You'll conquer that love affair with sweets and you are going to be THE HOTNESS come October!

You sooo got this! I am getting married 10-8-11, we are neighbor brides ;)

Congrats on joining a gym and spark, you are on the right track and without doubt, you will be stunning on your wedding day!

Congrats on your engagement! You can do it! Check out this sparkpeople article I just read that was really encouraging for me!

Congratulations. You can do it!

Just try and give things up gradually - soon enough you won't even "crave" them anymore!

I just joined sparkpeople. I got engaged in august and we are getting married 10-16-11. I couldn't be happier! i've gained about 40 pounds since college and feel gross. I want to look and feel great on my wedding day and my ultimate goal is to wear a bikini on our honeymoon and feel comfortable in it!

My fiance and I are taking "before" pictures tomorrow and joining the local gym tomorrow. We're committing to going together at least 3 times a week. Food will be the hardest part for me because I love everything bad... especially sweets. Wish me luck!
