Losing Weight

I was wondering is anyone actively trying to lose weight for your wedding? Are you asking the BM's to lose weight?


 


I havent been trying to lose weight but its like magically coming off. I've lost about 15 pounds in about 5 months. I haven't changed much, maybe just drinking more V8 splash and less soda. I didn't ask anyone to lose weight, honestly I don't care. I want them to look beautiful and feel comfortable.

I am definitely trying to lose weight...I am currently a size 26 and TRYING to get down to a size 22 at least (ideally size 20) by my wedding 6/11/11...I'm trying EVERYTHING! Pills, shakes, and major bike riding...unfortunately I still have a horrible addiction to fast food, so not sure I'm doing anything for myself...but I'm going to get back on the band wagon today...

I'm actively trying to lose weight, but not necessarily just for the wedding.  I gained about 60 pounds when I was preggo and my son is now 3 so there's no room for excuses anymore.  I'm trying to live a healthier lifestyle by being more active and making better food choices.


I've become a runner and exercise 5 days a week now; 3 days running and 2 days of strength and/or cross training.  I'm also a pescatarian (sp?) I only eat seafood now.  I try vegan and gluten free dishes when I can but doubt I'll ever go that route 100%

You go girls! I'm always a big cheerleader for those who are losing weight. I just thought it strange that when I was trying to lose weight I wouldn't lose anything but now that I have decided that a size 18 isnt so bad, now I'm dropping inches and a pound here and there. Weird eh?

I decided I was under enough stress already, without adding diet stress too.  My FI fell in love with me at the weight I am now and proposed to me, as long as he thinks Im beautiful, nothing else matters.  Relax girls, enjoy the moment, and see in yourself what he sees!!!  Congratulations everyone!  32 hrs for me, then maybe I'll lose some inches.  hahaha

Wow everyone is doing so great!! :)


I am trying to lose weight myself...am down 32lbs so far!!! I've been doing Weight Watchers at work and I love it so much!! This summer I was pretty active so I just have to keep that up through the winter...did Day 1 of the 30 Day Shred tonight & some yoga :o)


I just really really want to be happy with what I see in my wedding pictures...I am my own worst critic and I get so worried that I will hate the way I look in all of my wedding pics :(

I'm most definitely trying to lose weight. I started in March. I've lost 48 lbs so far. Managing my nutrition with food tracker on Sparkpeople. com and biking and walking a lot. I started at a 20/22 and I just bought my first pair of size 16 pants last week. I am trying to get down to an 11/12 for my wedding. 10 months to go.

My FI and I are both trying to lose weight. He has been doing better that me the last couple of months but I lost 4lbs last week and that makes a total of 10lbs so far. I am hoping to get back to my healthy weight of 130-135 by the wedding 5-29-11.


I would never ask my Bm's to lose weight they are all beautiful just the way they are and I know they think the same about me.

After seeing her go from a size 20 to a size 14 and she's still not satisfied until she's a size 8. I loss 23 lbs. during my first month and can't wait to receive my next shipment.  For any brides to be that are interested the website is www.naturealhealth.com

I was fine with my size 48-38-48. when i started planning the wedding i gained 30lbs due to stress. when 2011 hit i vowed to stop stressing and just relax- take things one day at a time i started losing weight i did my fitting for my dress and now im 44-34-44! that made me proud! it's really a mental thing. don't lose weight just for the wedding...lose it for you health and happiness!!! love my p-dub girls no matter what size! we are hot sexxi mamas!!!

Im new to the forums, but at a sie 28, Im definitely looking to lose some weight before the big day. This is the highest Ive ever been and I feel awful about it. I try to feel and give off the impression Im happy with myself, and beautiful, and many people think i honestly feel that way and are very supportive...but the truth is, I wish it was as easy to get it all off as it was to pack it on.


 


I have been working out steadily, zumba mainly since I enjoy dancing. But I hate being the biggest person there and wish there was a "plus sized" class HAHAH. :)


 


Anyway, good luck everyone, and I truly hope that we can feel as beautiful as we will look to not only everybody else, but to ourselves.
