Default Wedding challenge - 2013

Hi Ladies! I am getting married in Spring 2013 (still a year and a half out) but I've begun to think about dress shopping. Any fellow brides-to-be out there looking to lose weight for either dress shopping or an upcoming wedding?

Let's get some short term goals going so we're not all rushing in the last minute!! Post your starting/current/goal weight below and let's pick a date!

190/188/145

wow you got that dress early! I'm not sure yet, but something simple. I have some ideas. I'm hoping to set short term goals and challenges if we can get other brides involved!

Hi Ladies! I'm getting married June 22nd. I'd love some motivation and inspiration! At this point I'm taking it one month at a time. Hope to be down 9lbs by valentine's day. Doing weight watchers and trying to walk 250,000 steps by then.

Smile I'm getting married 8/24/13!

So far I've lost 62 lbs, but still have over 100 to go. I'm determined to look good in the mermaid fit gown pictured below.

I'm getting married august 2014 and I want to lose 45 lbs by then. I want to go dress shopping this summer (in 5 months) and I would love to be down at least 30-35 lbs by then. I am so unhappy with my body right now I really don't think dress shopping will be a happy experience.

Hi Rated, I dreaded going dress shopping. So worried I wouldn't find anything that fit or looked nice. It turned out to be a wonderful experience. The girls who worked there were extremely nice and patient with me. Once I found my dress I wanted to keep 'shopping' because it was so much fun. You'll have a wonderful time and look beautiful, I'm sure.

I'm not a bride-to-be, but I'll be a bridesmaid in December. My goal is to be a size 14 or smaller...I'm a tight 16 right now.

Congrats to all of you on your engagement/upcoming weddings!!

Hello, ladies!

Seems like this thread's been quiet for a while but I hope you are all around! I'd love to join. I'm getting married in April 2014 and would ideally like to lose about 35-40 lbs. before then. I'm going dress shopping in a few weeks & am not totally looking forward to it because I'm not very happy with my body right now.

Last year I started seriously trying to lose weight and lost about 25 lbs., but still have a ways to go. Would love to be on here & give/get support with other brides-to-be!

I'm a bridesmaid in October and want to be down to my weight when I met the bride... about 40-45lbs ago. I'm also going to get married in the next year or so (such a long story about that...) so I want to be working now before I feel the exact date pressure too! I'm shooting for 7lbs a month until the Vegas wedding in a little black dress... hoping I can be a smoking bridesmaid by then!

Oh, and the bride wants us to wear 4" heels. My body can't handle heels that high at this weight, I quite literally can't walk. Hoping losing some of this will help me be able to stand them for a few hours!!!!


FoodLoverNYC, want to shoot for a June 1 mini goal with me? I would like to be down to 195 then- thats 17lbs, and would be the first time below 200 since 2009... Anyone else have a June 1 goal?

I am getting married in August. I want to be down another 10lbs by then I have my dress which is already to big and needs to be sized down so I am waiting as long as I can to get as small as I can.
