    No regrets Bride to be

    I have decided to create a weight loss diary to make me accountable for my food as I have become a bit complacent at the moment with my diet and I haven't really lost much weight for the whole of November!

    Since I went to university I have struggled with my weight gaining and losing the same two stone over a 10 yr period!
    So my fiancée proposed this summer and we are getting married next October. It is now time to take charge of my weight problem once and for all.

    I've tried every diet under the sun and sometimes I think with all my knowledge I could set up my own slimming club... I'm just not able to put it into practice! I recently tried Xenical tablets and I hated them. I was constantly afraid of eating the wrong food but making up for it my eating food like bread and haribos with no fat in them.

    I have talked to several brides over the years who regret not losing enough weight for their wedding day. I honestly do not want to look back on my wedding day with regrets. I have already been a bridesmaid several times and am unhappy with most of the pictures due to my weight.

    Since August I have lost 10lbs. Its slow but not steady! I keep going up and down due to making wrong choices. Ideally I'd like to lost another 3 and a half stone for my wedding day. I start dress shopping next february and would like to have lost at least another stone to a stone and a half by then!

    I follow slimming world roughly and go to the weekly weigh in each week.

    Well done for taking charge and attempting to do something about your weight so that you can enjoy your big day to the fullest. It can be very difficult to get started but definitely worth it.

    I'm one of those brides who regrets not loosing the weight before my wedding, I got married 6 months ago and I hate myself in the photos. I managed to lose a stone before the big day but still looked massive. I also put that stone back on until I started my weight again 2 months ago - almost 2 stone down again now.

    I'm sure you'll be able to reach your goals, good luck on your journey! Keep posting!

    Subscribing!

    I'm trying to lose weight for my sister's wedding in feb and then keep it off for my own wedding in may 2016. I originally joined slimming world for my other sisters wedding a few years ago, lost a good bit but had put some back on by the time of her wedding- felt self conscious all day since the dress was tight when a few months earlier (when it had first came into the shop) it was loose.

    Thanks for the support girls. I was bridesmaid 3 times and never once felt happy and confident in my dress. So I really want my wedding day to be different.
    I've a very large family and a large group of friends so I always have social engagements and they always involved food. It's very hard to refuse temptation.

    But on a sadder note I've a funeral to go to tonight and tomoro so I don't know what the food situation will be. It's a very sad day so I'm not gonna worry about it too much.
    My weigh in is tomoro but I might not make it. I'll see how the day goes.

    So home from funeral and I wasn't too bad. Just had the wedges, 1 square of choc and a bite of carrot cake. It could have been much worse than that....

    Weigh in day- up half a pound!
    disappointed but went straight after lunch so I'm trying to blame the food!
    But being honest with myself I didn't stick closely enough with the plan this week.
    I need to do a proper food shop after work tomoro and get organised. I haven't got the proper food in at the moment so I keep making bad choices!

    Half a pound isn't too bad, especially when you haven't been able to stay on plans. It can be awful hard at funerals, there's never really much to have on plan, and usually you don't really care too much since it's a sad enough time.

    Hope you have a better week this week. Slimming world chicken and pea risotto sounds yum

    Ya I suppose half a pound isn't too bad. But I was up a half last week too. So over the last two weeks I've gone up a pound so not ideal.
    I'm away this week too so will have to be very careful with my choices and the following week is my engagement party!! So lots of food and drink! And then were into the silly season!! So hard this time of year, but I've to stop making excuses and behave myself!
