    wow I cant believe the time is now flying past !!!

    I am really looking forward to it....but think in the next few weeks the nerves about eveything going right will kick in!!

    Was at mums again today and tried on the dress again and its really starting to fit better, so even though I only lost 3lb in the last 2 weeks I think some inches must have come off as it deffo did up better this time than it did 3 weeks ago! But it was good incentive to try it on again, as it reminds me of how much more i do want/need to loose in the coming weeks.

    I have just been on to figleaves to order myself an all in one body/basque thingy so it all looks more contoured and smoother under the dress, it is all boned and strapless(the dress) but dont think I am brave enough to wear it with no bra underneath at all:eek: do have gone for something with some control! the other side of things is if I wear it with no bra...tmi now sorry..but I get very sweaty under my boobs if I go bra- less and dont think that would be very attractive for our wedding night!!!lol:p

    Have been very good and back to CD 100% since a small meal which led to a blow out on wed night:confused: but I have been well in ketosis today as I have been freezing and have just tested and I am really in the pink:)

    Going to stay in ketosis now till Hen night in 3 weeks time!!

    I know I can get alot more off and get to my wedding goal of 11.3 if I put my mind to it!!!!!!

    Off to bed soon...feeling pooped tonight!

    thanks for reading my ramblings..........think i am going to start doing my wedding countdown diary now........logging thoughts, feelings and going ons!! oh and weight loss!!

    chat soon all and good luck with wedding weight losses!

    hugs to all brides to be

    morning all!!

    was surfing around last night looking for some hair styles that will last me the day and look good on the wedding day!
    Found a few but ended up nearly falling asleep on the keyboard so decided to try again today!
    I want it up a little bit at the sides but cant decide whether to have it straight or slightly curled!! I guess thats why people have trials of what they want done !!lol:rolleyes:

    Vic is on nights this week and we(me and the boys) have been at my mums and sis this weekend but we got back last night after vic had gone to work so we have havent seen him, anyway he came up to bed about 7 this am snuggled in and said that In 5 weeks it would just be me and him married and snuggled up in a hotel room somewhere!!

    I am soooooo excited!!! after so long(13yrs) of referring to each other as 'my other half' it will be lovely to use the official title of My Husband, or My Wife!!

    When I was at my friends on fri I was telling her about my disasterous dress fitting the other week....and she has very kindly lent me her wedding dress as a back up/reserve.
    Its a lovely dress and looked really good on.........but I really want to wear mine and I dont want to use the other dess as an excuse not to ss, anyway tried on both at mums yesterday and deffinalty decided that I prefer mine and am going to do everything in my power to wear mine! It has a better feel to it and russels like a dress is supposed to do:p ..........and the other benefit with mine is that cos its laced we can pull it tight on my waist(which is alot slimmer than my tummy) and it really gives me a better shape and essensuates(sp!!) my waist!!!!


    the very odd thing about the borrowed dress is that my friend was 15st and 4 months preg when she got married and the dress fitted her.......I am 12.3 and deffo not preg and it fits me too!!!!!!! NOW HOW DOES THAT WORK!!!! ok so shes about 4 inches taller than me but what a difference !!!

    anyway off to out the heating back on and get the boys brekkie!

    who will be doing your hair on the big day, I went to the hairdressers a few times and tried different styles and left it in as long as it would stay like it.....think this is the only way to be sure of the style.

    Hi there sonkie,
    Luckily my Sister In Law is a trained hair dresser and beautician and she will be doing my hair and make up.

    She has cut and coloured my hair for the past 3 or so yrs ,and so I trust her 100%, she knows what I do and dont like and I know she will do wonders! and the other side of things is that she will do hair and make up that will last me for the whole day.whereas if I did it myself it will be gone by 3pm!!lol

    she will be coming to my house this wednesday to do a trial of the hair, think I will get her to try a straight style and then a slightly curly one......and see which looks better!

    have had another good day today CD wise, just off to have a muffin...and a coffee, tried on friends dress again today and I deffo do prefer my one....so I am going to stick to ss and get it done up properly!!lol

    chat soon Lou X

    33 days to go!!!!!!!!

    OMG where has the time gone!!???

    anyway CD going really well again today got on the scales this am and I am down to 12.1.........I sooooo want to get to the 11's at this weeks wi on wed! I AM GOING TO BE 11.3 FOR MY WEDDING!!lol:D

    Popped into town this am to get a few more bits for the wedding, went to Claire's to try and find a white comb to sew the veil onto.........but I couldnt find one anywhere! went to Boots, superdrug, accessorise etc etc.........the only place I didnt go was John Lewis. I got some brown ones in superdrug but really wanted white..they will do for now I do still have a while left.
    I am going to be wearing mums veil, it is a huge square one, which both she and my sister wore and then mum embroidered initials and date of weddings into the corners...so I guess my initials will be next!! it is beautiful, I will gather it from the middle so its all flowing down the back,I will be wearing this with a lovely tiara that my dad bought for me a while ago i'm getting all excited about seeing it all together.:D

    My sister is getting together all the 'something old' type things........not allowed to ask too many questions!!lol
    I have requested from my mum that I borrow my nans diamond ring(that her grandmother was given on her wedding day) the reason for this is because my nan is in a home and has alzheimers(sp??) and obviously wont be coming to the wedding...but I wanted something with me ..so that she was with me(if you get my drift)..sad though as it makes me upset now even thinking about her not being there with us( I know its not possible but its still hard)

    moving on........

    I bought a card today for vic to be given to him on the morning of the wedding.......I have also bought him a beautiful pair of square cufflinks and they have a glass top with little coloured diaminds inside the glass that move around.

    Something I had better explain before I get too far into the diary...our theme is squares......and this is why..

    A week after we moved in together(13yrs ago!!) vic got mugged..the next day we went to Police station to report it, anyway as we were sitting there waiting to be seen I got all slushy and asked him how much he loved me........he replied

    'Well see all those little square tiles on the wall......well I love you that much by a million.'


    This then became I love you squillians!!! and our theme/thing has been squares eversince!!!!!
    So we always sign cards,texts etc.......love you squares!!

    SAD I know....but there it is!!!

    so we are having a square cake,square candles, square flower displays and hence the square cufflinks!!!

    Anyway I think I have gassed on enough today.........sorry if any of you have fallen asleep!!!!!!!!;)

    Still cant work out how to quote!! will have to goto user cp me thinks!!lol

    Well Bex the most important thing is that you havent let that half stone become any more than just that! So you must be doing something right.

    You will get there when the time is right for you honey!
    Just never give up and you will get there one day!

    well here we are at the end of another day! I have had another great day CD wise, must confess though I did have an extra pack today...not that I was feeling hungry, but I just really needed something when the boys were having dinner and decided that another pack wouldnt do any harm...where as food would have done!

    Have drunk loads of water today, I am so glad we now have plastic recycling i have been going through 2 bottles of water a day and it soon adds up...so at least i am doing my bit by recycling rather than binning them!

    Really looking forward to wi this week...up till now I have been dreading them as I know i have picked during the week, but I know that I have had a good week and really want to see a good loss this week!

    Off to bed soon, feeling really pooped tonight.....

    looking forward to the hair dressing session on wed night, cant wait to see what it all looks like together and done properly!!

    night night all........well done on another day of ss-ing!!

    32 days to go!

    well had a good day yesterday, and having another great one today, just resisted popping a piece of cheese in my mouth(kept thinking of the dress!!)...only 12hrs till next wi......cant wait this week..I so want to be in the 11's! 12st 1/2lb by mine this am!

    Ordered an all in one body shaper on sunday to go under my dress....well it came today...........talk about a laugh!!!

    Its an all in one body thing with detachable straps......well getting it on was so funny.....I was pulling it on up my legs and over my tummy and its a really tight thing and all the skin and flab was being pushed upwards towards my boobs!! it was sooooo funny!! just as well I was the only one there.....anyway finally got it on and sorted.........but its just mad......there are underwires under the boobs...but then a boned bit up the front(one under each boob, down to the tummy bit) but the boned bits just buckle under the bra bit and your boobs just sag and theres no support at all!!

    Needless to say I will be going to the post office to return it tomorrow!
    Going to play it safe and goto M+S on sat with my mum!! dont really need a corset/basque as the dress is already boned just want an all in one thing so I have a smooth line under the dress with no knicker line around my tummy!

    Anyway just feeding little un lunch and then off to school to pick up boys.....the eldest has recently started cubs and is off to have a go at bell ringing tonight!! sounds great fun to me...shame parents cant go!!

    have a good day all Lou X

    Hi Lou

    If you want to quote someone's reply - just click on the quote button in blue at the bottom of their reply ..... then add your own comments afterwards! To multi quote click on the "+ button at the side of quote for everyones replies you want to multiquote! Simple when you know how!

    I wore my nans watch at my wedding even though it did not work - because she died 6weeks before I got married. It felt like she was there in spirit and I'm sure your nan will be too.

    30 days to go!

    Well we will be in the 20's tomorrow....how scary and yet exciting is that!!

    Was having a bit of a weak moment this afternoon and ate a slice of ham and a sliver of cheese!!!:sigh: :mad: I was angry with my self......but it was so hard as I was making vic and the boys cheese toasties and tom soup............yummy!!!!!!!!!!
    anyway decided I really did want my dress to fit and so went and made myself a choc muffin, and a few mins later I got this lovely text off my CDC:)

    I was so shocked and pleased to see the big difference in you last night. All in just a week. Keep going you are going to look wonderful!


    It came at just the right time and kicked ChatterBox right up the jacksey and sent her on her way! What a lovely text...I am so glad I found my CDC...she really does make the difference sometimes in winning or loosing this battle!

    Anyway we have had a couple of good days here, I was over the moon last night at wi to see I had lost 5lb and into the 11's at last(again!!LOL)........thats a total of 26 since jan 3rd. I am more than happy with that and leaves me just 9lb to go till I reach my lowest on CD. I would love to get lower than that for the wedding but we shall have to wait and see how it all goes.

    We booked our Honey moon accomodation today.....a lovely converted Barn in Buxton. Derbyshire at the end of may. We have booked it for the week, but will have to miss the first 2 days of it as mum and sis are having the boys, and its just not convenient to have then before the monday..but might see if we can work our charm and see if we can wangle another day out of them!!:rolleyes: lol
    It still works out cheaper for us than booking into a hotel or B+B for 5 nights.
    Welcome Cottages, holiday cottage rental in England, Scotland, Wales, Ireland and France.=

    if you can, try and have a look at the virtual tour or interior photos.....it looks amazing!!:)

    Had hair and make up done yesterday and it looked fab and nice to know now what I do/dont want.
    I did take a couple of pics on my phone but the didnt come out very well....so you will all just have to wait another 30 days!!

    Anyway off to bed soon I think, but deffo time for pj's...I can hear them calling!!!lol

    night all hugs Lou XX

    If you can't find it in the shop ALWAYS do a search on ebay - they 99.9% of the time have it - I've been looking for some football coat hooks for Charlies room and couldn't find any anywhere - but yup they are on ebay - just gotta bid and win them now....:D

    The WeMitt Meet is in Birmingham and we meet at the Jurys Inn Hotel (lovely place) on Broad Street (central BHam).... around 3ish..... everyone just sits around chatting drinking tea, coffee, water (or whatever really!)...... then those people eating go and eat those of us staying over (which is loads this time) get ready to go out and then there is a 70's bar - Flares - dead opposite the hotel..... great music, great unpretensious (sp!) atmosphere and cheap drink for those drinking.... just boogie till we drop then stagger back to the hotel..... was great last time..... you must come to the next one - prob be around September time after summer hols and kids back at schoool......

    Love

    ONLY 27 DAYS TO GO!!!!!!!!!!

    whooppee!!!!

    Tried on my dress again and its fitting better than ever! I went to m+s yesterday and bought one of the all in one things, this time it fitted well, and did the job by holding my boobs up and flattening my tummy!!!:p So £32 well spent! just need to wip it off quick on the wedding night...after vic has let me out of my dress.....and exchange it for my sexy nightie!!;)


    All this said about the dress fitting better etc..I am ashamed and so cross:mad: to admit to eating last night!:cry:

    I am so close to the wedding now and did so well last week and all day yesterday, I made dinner for mum and dad and family and I just had a bit of chicken and cauli+broccolli.
    Later I the evening I start eating bits and bobs out of the cupboard!WTF????? my dress fitted better and I am eating!! I am so stupid at times!!!!!

    ANYWAY...back to it again today, have had 3 pints of water in the past hr and I am just gonna get head down and focus on me.........I know I can do this.......just very angry with myself!:mad: But I know giving up is not an option so its onwards and downwards...........just wish my resolve was as good as it was first time round and I would have talked myself out of eating in the first place!

    well off for more water and deffo staying out of the kitchen today.....no roast to cook today as they had it yesterday and vic is working tonight and so in bed all day......so thats one temptation out of the way!!
