Big Day 30th August 2008 and just started CD!

Discussion in 'Brides To Be' started by IWILLSUCCEED!, 5 January 2008 Social URL.



    Hi all,
    I've just started the Cambridge diet and am on day 3! Got about 4 1/2 stone to lose and hope I can do it before then! Want to be a slim bride.
    Anyways - to introduce myself. I'm tansy and was widowed in 2002 (he was only 37 and died in a motorbike accident). I never thought I'd find love again let alone remarry's happened and I love my fiance dearly!
    I've got two children - both with learning disabilities so life can be rather challenging at times.
    I put on loads of weight following a long hospitalisation when the discs in my back herniated. I then gave up smoking a year ago.
    I am determined to start feeling better about myself and hope that this is the year for ALL of us.
    It's great to see so many success stories and this site is such a source of inspiration I've been lurking on here ever since I found the site on Thursday!lol
    Congratulations to all of you on your weddings - we're all gonna look great and, for sure, we're all loved by our men whatever size we are!
    Good luck to everyone,

    Hiya Tansy and congratulations on your wedding :) You'll deffo have that weight off in plenty time on the CD and well done on getting to day 3...things will get easier from hereon in!! How's the planning going?


    Oh - not done that much planning as yet. Have the invites here, have ordered the rings, posted the banns.
    This will be quite a small wedding - about 50 guests in all and complicated because my OH is German so some guests will be coming from Germany so have to sort out accommodation for them.
    My sister is holding a reception for us at her house after a small wedding at register office (old country house).
    Am sort of doing bits and pieces as and when I can.
    Wondering where we can go for honeymoon at end aug/beginning sept......any ideas - we don't want anywhere too hot and are on a budget!!!
    I'm planning on getting more excited when I've lost some more weight and decided on a dress. I love the medieval look - big sleeves and all that but don't know if the blokes will want to be men in tights!lol
    Have made a to do list and am just taking things slowly - otherwise I'll just get stressed!
    Thanks for being interested
