I'm single as the day is long, but I wanted to pop in and say welcome to you!!! I'm glad you found us here and I wish you all the luck in the world with the weight loss and your wedding! :welcome2:

I am engaged but I have no wedding date set. I'm also in the process of losing a substantial amount of weight before I tie the knot so good luck to us!! :)

Hi C.C. and Julia!

C.C., Thanks for the well wishes :)

Julia, Congrats on the engagement!!! We don't have a date set yet, just a month :) Looks like you've lost about 50 lbs in just over 3 months! Any advice or tips? Are you using a program?

Congrats on the engagements! i will join in to support you Rocky, I was married this year (april 18) and weighed 235, So I can set a goal for my one year engagement. me and my hubs never got a honeymoon, and we're planning on taking one this year (prolly not til june). So I want to be in better shape for my anniversary.

My goal is 226 by 4/18/10.

Hope you'll have me as a buddy!

Hey Rockymtn girl! Congrats to you too!
I've been counting calories and working out everyday. The big difference for me this time is the working out. All of the other times I tried to lose weight, I would plan to do it 3 or 4 times a week but I'd keep making excuses and eventually just stop. Working out everyday doesn't allow me to delay it and it definitely keeps me accountable in terms of what I eat because I fear undoing my work lol!
Good luck!!!

I have an engagement depending on losing weight. This sounds worse than it is, as I also have a BA to complete and a credential program to follow. But I won't allow an engagement to occur until I lose the weight.

So, we're ironically on just about the same time line, just different goals.

Congratulations on the engagement.

Yay, there are a few more posts! I'm off to work so I can't write a long post, but I'll be back after work and will respond :)

I'm engaged but we're far from setting an official wedding date. We recently had a discussion about my weight loss, when I said I'd like us to hold off on getting married when I'm much closer to my goal.

Part of my feels a little vain over it, but I really don't want to feel self-conscious when I'm walking down the aisle and being photographed all over the place. Plus it somehow seems like a fitting way to start that stage of my life; to be healthier, happier?

12-08-2009, 03:51 PM
Julia, sounds like a plan close to what I'm doing, so I hope I have as much success as you have had!

Medina, Oh where you going for your honeymoon? How exciting! I have a trip with the fiance in July to Oregon Coast and would like to be 170, so I need to lose 80lbs in 8 months!

DuckyYellowFeet, Whew, sounds like you have a lot on your plate! Looks like we have real close goals too!!!

Sirenity, congrats on the engagement and congrats on already losing over 100 lbs!!!! That is so great!!!! You'll be at 150 in no time! I think girls are allowed to be vain for their own weddings... all the focus is on you and it is such a huge day that I completely understand about wanting to be healthy, happy, and just STUNNING on that day!

we havent exactly decided where to go, but I'd like to go on a cruise. and wear a bathing suit! I want to go somewhere that I can swim with stingrays...

and to all you feeling a little bad about vanity on your big day, forget about it! Be vain!

my son was born Dec. 9, 08, I was married April 18, 09, and I weighed 237 on my big day, and honestly, I felt big all day. looking at the pictures makes me upset, and i want to have a formal renewal on our 5 year so i can look good. You guys have the right idea wanting to look and feel hot on your big day!

12-09-2009, 10:30 AM
Oh I definitely want to do a cruise for our honeymoon too! We're paying for our wedding ourselves, so I don't know if we'll be able to take a honeymoon but I'm definitely trying to save up more money so we can do something! But a cruise seems like so much fun! I've never wanted to go to a tropical vacation spot due to the dreaded bathing suit... so I can't wait to be at my goal weight and look good in a swimsuit!

Just got tickets to my fiance and I's first wedding/bridal show!!! So excited!!!

Definitely take a cruise to Grand Cayman. Swimming with the stingrays was a once in a lifetime experience.

Oh that sounds like a fun cruise idea!

thanks for the tip!

Hello Everybody!
Anybody engaged and have a wedding coming up?
My wedding is in June 2011 (year and a half) and I need to drop 100lbs!!!!
Would love to find other engaged gals who are trying to drop the pounds before their big day!

Congrats to you RockyMtnGirl!

I am engaged and getting married on March 20th! I too had a year and a half long engagement. Unfortunately I delayed on getting started until January for some reason. And then it took me about two months to get in the groove.
But since March I have dropped 81lbs. Want to lose another 40 by the wedding. I just started working out so that should speed things up a bit. So far my weightloss has been due to just a change in my diet.

Well good luck to you and I hope you are successful in both your planning and your weightloss efforts!

Motivatedbride- Congrats! Your wedding is just around the corner! How exciting!!!
We're are the same weight and my goal is to get under 200 by the end of March, so looks like we have close goals too!
Hope you come back and we can help each other reach our goals to look fantastic in our wedding dresses!!!!
So what's your wedding going to be like? Outdoor, indoor, colors, theme???

Yes we want wedding details. Don't leave us hanging!

12-11-2009, 08:45 AM
That's pretty cool that we have similar goals! Except mine ends with me in my dress. I was hoping to be 170 for the wedding but I think I look great just under 200 anyway. My issue is my arms. I really want my arms to slim down and be more toned since they will be completely exposed. I don't even wear sleeves that go above my elbow at this point :( So I have some work to do there.

As far as details, the wedding is indoors at a beautiful ski resort. Ceremony and reception at same venue. Bridesmaids are wearing gorgeous long black strapless gowns, me in ivory, and my fh and his guys are in all black tuxes and shirt with ivory vest/tie. Everything else is black and ivory/white with accents of red.

How bout you? Have you been jotting down any ideas yet?

12-11-2009, 08:38 PM
Sounds very classy and gorgeous!

We're planning a spring wedding at the start of the Rockies, lots of wildflowers, daffodil yellow and cornflower blue colors, just a happy and cheerful celebration :)

12-12-2009, 12:10 PM
Sounds beautiful! Im sure your photos will be amazing :)

12-14-2009, 10:37 AM
Thanks! You'll have to post pictures of your wedding!

Lost only 1lb this week :( But that's still 1lb, so I'm happy with that :) But do plan on kicking my butt in the gym this week to see if I can get it to 3lbs next week!
