August 2012 bride

#1
Hi All,
New to the forum.
Im getting married in August next year.
Started my diet already! initially i want to lose 2 stone and then i'll see how i feel to see if i want to lose any more.
Im trying to lose weight through slimming world and have signed up for 12 weeks to see how that goes! So full on commitment for 3 whole months and if its a crap loss im gonna have to go drastic! ;)

Anyway, if anyone is in a similar situation and wants a weight loss buddy to give a kick up the arse and a whinge about back fat and bingo wings when trying on dresses then give me a shout! :D

Hi Steph. Im getting married the end of July 2012. Ive been doing SW for years, but really fell off the wagon and put back on 2 out of my 4 stone i lost. Anyway with only a year to go and my dress made(im really organised, and need to know how much im spending to do the overtime hehe) im back on track 100% and want to stay that way. I have about 3 stone ish to lose. Going to try the dress on on the 30th, but its not a proper fitting, but still trying to lose a good few pound before then.

Have you found your dress yet? How is your week going? Ive been doing the Biggest Loser game on the kinect and when its hard i just keep telling myself 'wedding dress'....are you doing exercise too?

Im here if again you want a winge or a hand back on the wagon :)

Happy Slimming
Alex xx

HI -
I dont have a date (apart from 2012), dress or wedding plan yet (see my thread, totally new at this :)) but all the hints and tips for planning a wedding - and for a kick up the arse on dieting - greatly appreciated.

Im calorie counting. I have a target of 1200kcal a day which has been alright so far. Im also going to the gym more regularly which helps me maintain my calorie allowance. I think that was also beginners luck not that im complaining. :)

Yay A reply!!!
Hi guys! How are you all getting on with the madness that is organizing a wedding with the added panic of losing weight for it? Lol!

Im having a good week this week! lost 3lbs and got slimmer of the week so very happy with that!!

Had a rather lazy week exercise wise aswell and only managed 2 workouts which is very poor for me! i do try and go gym 4-5 a week, but am tempted to reduce that to 3 times whilst im still 'new' at Slimming World so that when i hit a plateau i can up the exercise and then hopefully lose abit again! lol!

Havent got my dress yet. Been and looked at a few. Im not particularly a girly girl and although i liked a couple of the dressed and would be more than happy in either one of them, i didnt get the 'this is the one' feeling that im being told i should get! Lol! I just dont think im that kinda gal! :)
Im looking at a couple on Saturday though so wish me luck!
Alex, like you, im trying to do things as i go along, got samples of wedding invites, and like them so will be ordering them soon, trying to find dress, got cake maker sending quotes etc. Its Mad!!!

Anyway! heres to us for being skinny minnies for our big day!

Im in a bit of a down period as i organised most of my bits already, due to budgeting, but going to buy bits to make invites tomorrow so that should give me my buzz back. :) Lost 5.5lb this week so really happy. Just need to keep it going. Gratz on your loss too Steph. Keep it up and like you said, Skinny Minnies :p

well done both of you on the weight loss. Im going to look at photographers over the next day or so as i would like to have that all booked up. Need to make a proper start.

Just think how good you feel when you have lost all your weight and are in a lovely dress. Then you will want your picture taken! :)

I'm not a girly girl either and choosing the dress is probably the last thing to do, since I can't be bothered trying anything on till I lose then weight. Definitely nothing in frilly though! I'm working on simple, hopefully elegant and maybe with a splash of colour in the design.
