I've officially lost 10lbs!

I'm really excited by this, and I did it on my own sort of speak. Although I knew I would want to lose some weight this is what started it. In November, I went on my first dress search (as of today still no dress :-( but looking still) and during my search I noticed a few problem areas I wanted to work on and mentioned I would have to start working out and toning up, well the bridal consultant said most brides say that but they don't lose the weight so be careful about buying anything smaller, you'll regret it, we can make the dress smaller not bigger. My take away, she doesn't know me that well, when I get focused, I get focused, I'm an accountant w/attention to detail. So after X-mas until now I started doing and mixing up exercise tapes (P90X, Jillian Michael, Brazilian Butt and Taebo) and of course I eliminated a lot of junk, I still eat 3 times a day, but I eat my heavy meal for lunch and something light for dinner and lots of water and fruit. I'm just now hitting the gym and have rode my bike a few times but that's it. Believe me this hasn't been easy but right now I'm happy w/the results. That bridal consultant underestimated a women planning for Wedding day! Sorry so long but you get my point. I have til July to find a dress, body ready but no dress, now this is stress.

That's fantastic news girl and good for you for staying disciplined for that long - I think we all know how hard it is to stick to something that seems as simple as changing your eating habits.  I'm really happy for you and I'm sure all your hard work is going to pay off!

Congrats!  Good for you in proving her wrong, too! 


I understand how it can sometimes be in a bride's best interest to hear that sort of the thing from a consultant, but they are really just saying that to cover their a**.  I am now further inspired to keep at my own exercise plan!

Congratulations! You're an inspiration to me!


I lost 18 lbs over several months after I got engaged.  I still have another 10 lbs to go to reach my ideal weight.  My dress went from not being able to zip up to now when I can so it up but it's still snug. 


I'm figuring that after I lose the next 10 lbs it will fit perfectly.  I will follow your plan of larger lunch, smaller dinner and cutting out all the sweets.


 


Thanks for sharing!
