On the journey to being a perfect bride


Full Member
Hi ladies (and gents)
My name is lynsey and i have lost 3 stone 3lbs so far.
Within the last year i have not followed the plan a 100% or even 50% resulting in my wedding dress no longer fitting.

I went for first fitting yesterday with no clue it wouldnt fit and its at least an inch to small around back and hips - Im sooooooooooooooo gutted as you can imagine

So brings me back here - i go to class every week and im full of ideas for meal etc but my heart wasnt in the place the last year - i think my head believed it was at target and let you assure you im not.

So i have set my self a mini and goal target.

12weeks to lose 16lbs - then go and try dress back on

This 16lbs will get me to my final target and a total of 4stone 2 lbs weight loss

Im also a 12 week fitness challenge - i used to run 3 times a week but again havent done that in a year so i started from stratch last night was my first jog and man it was tough but i made it.

So fitness wise im aiming 3 times a week , mon, wed, friday also wanting to start a fitness class either zomba or fitness pilates - not sure which would tone up more - any zumba or pilates people out there that can give some insight.

Well ive rambled enough - im away to look at zumba classes in my area

Many thanks for reading

Oh well zumba last night didnt go as planned - One of the ladies had a fit/fainting 20mins into the class so of course we had to stop - 999 was called but she evetually came round as the ambulance crew got there. Including me there was 3 nurses in the class so at least we knew how to control the situation.
A little disppointed didnt get to exercise but glad the women was ok
So decided to go out for another jog after it. So techincally did week 1 day 2 a day early - but im think of going out for a jog again tonight.

Dinner last night was yummy - im going to try and take pictures from now on to share any of you whom are reading.

Hello! Wanted to stop by after I saw the title of your diary! I'm a B2B too but not until September next year (18 months to go)! It looks as though you're back on track and definitely focused to shift those pounds, good luck xxx
