Poll: Weight Loss

There are alot of us on here that are wanting and needing  to lose weight. Losing weight can be very stressful and difficult.


I thought that maybe there could be a section on here for weight loss. Brides can give their love and support to each other to help lose the weight. We can also give advice on different types of diets and recipes that one could try to promote weight loss.


Basically motavating each other.


Do you think this would be a good idea, or do you think it would not be appropriate for this type of forum?

Great idea!! I just realized that although my wedding is in April...i need to be at my goal weight and have alterations at least started by the end of the year!!  The WORST possible time to try and lose weight!!

    Like I said, there is alot of us and I figured we all could benefit from love and support.


If a lot of people seem interested in my idea, I will send an e-mail to Margaret, Joe and Srini and see if they could add it.

YES! Im trying, but loosing motivation!


  My friends and I used to do WW together- and every wednesday morning we would weigh ourselves and check in with eachother, and give random support throughout the week.. We could do something similiar on here? (They all bailed on me now that its my turn to get married and its not all about them for once) haha sorry for the rant!


Anyway, let get this going just in a thread and see what happends!


- HMM :)

Good Idea! I was planning on posting about weight loss today as a mater of fact! I recently lost 30 pounds on a special medically supervised diet...which was great. However I still have a ton to lose. I joined an all woman gym, got a trainer (2-3 times/week), do cardio on non-trainer days and have really been watching what I am eating. I have been consistently doing this for weeks now.  I am at the gym at least 5-6 days per week! And yet...THE SCALE HAS NOT CHANGED!!!! WTF???!!! So frustrated! FI says he can see a difference and that I'm more toned but my cloths don't feel any different.


I'm getting stressed b/c I need to start thinking about picking and ordering a dress, taking E-pics, taking B-pics... BUT I want to lose weight before I do any of these things.


My trainer keeps telling me not to be stressed because stress causes your body to hold on to fat. How can I not be stressed when I'm planning a wedding and working my A$$ off and yet not seeing my A$$ fall off?!!

Ok ladies. I am going to e-mail PW and ask if they could put up a forum just for weight loss so we can motivate each other or just vent. I'll keep you posted. :0)

good idea! I just recently had gastric lap band surgery (i know its a major bomb i'm dropping here on PW. lol) i got it because i have gained almost 80 lbs since college and it was affecting my health. but its not as easy to lose as one may think. in fact i havent dropped much. it requires a lot of support just like everyone else so i'm all for a section to motivate eachother with tips, ideas, and support.

I think it's a great idea.... another (NWR) forum I'm on has a section just for this; everyone has a "tracking thread" where they can log their food, their workouts, but also vent about frustrations, and share successes.

c'mon ladies!!!!!!!  we can do it!!!


whether it's the pesky "10 more pounds" or more --- all wee need is the endcouragement that sometimes we're too tired to give ourselves!!


we CAN do it - but it's just so much sweeter to cross the finish line with each other!

I love the idea, I think its great & very encouraging. I just lost 5 lbs & 11 inches in a month. You guys have given the support to get my A$$ to workout & wanna look good in my dress & all the pics that I'm gunna take.


We can all do this, we just need that extra push.

I have lost 30lbs from my heaviest but 20 since we got engaged on Christmas.  I would still like to lose about 15-20 more, and more importantly tone up.  I have exactly 4 months to do it!   So...I joined the gym on Friday and got 4 sessions with a PT, but haven't gone in yet.  I am working 3 jobs and on my 2 evenings off I got a DJ, cake and photographer for the wedding.  I will go this week though...for sure.
