    Hi Sherrie

    Didn't want to read and run :-)
    How are you getting on?
    Your dress looks lovely :-) I worry about my arms too, I can't seem to get them to tone up, how are you finding your weights?? Was thinking about ordering a little bolero type jacket for my wedding to hide them!

    Hey Girls! I'm getting married 6th Sept and can't wait! 13 weeks on Sat Eeekk!!! I think you look gorgeous Hun! But know what you mean as I've got a strapless dress and even though my arms aren't huge I still feel really self conscious in my dress and want to look my best on my Wedding Day! My chap is a fitness guru and always tells me that you can't pin point areas to lose weight so my advice would be diet and exercise in general (mainly weigh training) and you will soon see a difference xx

    Hi Tilly :-)
    Eek that's not far away now, are you organised?!
    I agree re losing weight all over, though have started to do some weight training on my arms in the hope I can shrink them a bit. They ache so I hope I'm doing something right! X

    Hi ladies - such an exciting time for us!!!!

    I worried bout my "armpit fat" in my strapless dress, little puffs of fat infront of armpits - I have been doing "flys" for this and noticed a massive change! Lying on back _ preferably on a gym ball under your upperback with a weight in each hand wrists/palms up and arms stretched out to the sides, bring them up to meet above your face with a slight bend in your elbows....that's the one!!!xx

    Though i would join in as im getting married on 23rd August.....like 7 weeks away and im freeking out. Sherrie you look lush in your dress but im the same about arms...im going to try some of these flys that Catz mentioned. Only thing that worries me is bulking up I really dont want to bulk up at all on my top half as im quite broad as it is!

    Anyway i have like a stone to loose at least and its freaking me out. I am trying my best to stick to teh slim and save diet with loads of exercise but im so bored and im so thinking that the shakes arnt clean enough eating!!!

    Hey
    Welcome along! Wow 7wks to go how exciting! Mine feels ages away but sure it will fly, trying to keep on top of everything but struggling!
    I wore a strapless top yesterday and felt mostly ok, but the armpit thing might need some work.
    I am currently doing slimming world and I LOVE it. You can eat so much food, I never go hungry, can always have a treat and I've lost 1st4lbs since march. I know some people have much quicker losses but I go over my syn allowance pretty much every weekend and am too busy/lazy to exercise!
    I've done slim fast before and gather slim and save is pretty similar? The hunger pangs and sugar highs and lows were what I stopped me doing it xx

    Ohh have you lots left to do? I suppose it will be all systems go in the weeks leading up to it!
    Did that mean to say food out of the equation? I didn't realise you didn't eat anything at all! Have you tried out her diets? Xx

    getting really close now ladies - im getting married 6 weeks on saturday and im doing 3 (ish) fitness classes per week, these are very high intensity classes like insanity and piloxing etc - its a love hate thing!!

    Flys are the most important wedding dress exercise as they will tone your chest and therefore reduce the armpit fat, tone upper arms and tone back fat.... !!!

    There is no way to will bulk up if you have weight to lose - if you spent 4/5 hours per day in the gym working out and took supliments etc then expect to "bulk" but real people dont bulk up from lifting a few tiny weights....! im doing flys with a combined efford of 15kg and have been for months and have defo not bulked up xx
    Start WI (23/06/14) : 13'08.02
    Week 1 (30/06/14) : 12'12.06
    Week 2 (07/07/14) : 13'3.00
    Week 3 (14/07/14) : 13'0.00
    Wedding dress fitting
    Week 4 (21/07/14)
    Week 5 (28/07/14)
