So here we are, 95 days until we tie the know. I have made a vow to myself to SERIOUSLY buckle down. I want to look back at our wedding photos and not think…gosh, I wish i worked out a lil harder and toned up a lil more.
Anyone interested in doing a weighloss challenge?? Its always nice to have someone else motivating you to do a little more. I am doing weekly measurements and weekly weigh-ins to track progress.

I’m always down for a weight-loss challenge! I’m weighing in once per week.
My challenge is to exercise 7 days a week – 5x at the gym and on the days I don’t work out at the gym, I need to go on a brisk walk of at least a half hour.
I would love to lose 20lbs by your wedding day in just over 3 mos.
I also want to go back to my “no carbs after lunch” eating program that I was on previously. I think slipping on that rule is one of the things that has contributed to my weight loss slowing down.
So, I’m in! Who else is with us?!

i’m in as well! my dress is on layaway, and the sample fit perfectly except i need to lose about an inch off my hips. i said i would order the size up and get it altered to fit my top, but it would be soooo much easier and cheaper if i could just lose an inch. 95 days is approximately when the shop will place the order so this is perfect!
what day shall we report?

i’ll have to dig out my trusty measuring tape and get a starting point!

Oh I am so in with you ladies. I have about 10-15 lbs to lose and the stupid scale has been stuck on the same number for quite some time. Great to have people to push you on.

I’ll join in!! I have about 5 more lbs I’d like to lose – but they’re the toughest!!!

Me! I would like to lose about 20 lbs also. I use to be 115 lbs, and now I’m 140, so bring it on! haha

I’ve already lost a pound in the past couple of days… I’ve been eating really badly before this, so it’s not a big surprise, haha. I have about 45-ish days to lose what I can! So basically… just trying to stay healthy and motivated!

I’m in too. I need 8-10 more pounds before my Nov. 7 wedding (holy geez…it’s really soon). I know I can do it -I just need a little push and a bit of accountability.

I’m in! I’ve been working hard and the scale is NOT budging. I’ve resolved to not get on the scale weekly, because it sets me back and kills my motivation. I’d like to lose 20-30 before the wedding, with the most before January (when I plan to start dress shopping!)

YES!!! I am so pumped!
I feel like you can’t have the weekly weigh in and measuring on wed (maybe thats me and i’m just weird about things) Lets weigh in today, and measure today. But have our official report in on Sundays. (never know, could loose a lb by sunday!!)
Also: do you want to post your weight and measurements or say if your down or up on lbs and where your measurments stands.
Measure: Neck, Bust, Waist, Hips, Thigh (left and right) calf (left and right) and biceps (left and right)
To keep eachother motivated we can:
– Send in what you did to workout
– any good workouts to suggest
-What you do to keep yourself on track
for example I am trying to not eat any carbs after noon (just like lorienne suggested!), cutting all my portions that I’d regularly eat in half, or at least down drink lots of water, and try to cut out any processed foods. I know its bad but i weigh in daily in the am after i pee. I feel like it kind of keeps me on track. Granted i know your weight can fluctate daily but overall that helps me too.
I’ve been doing this for the past two weeks and have lost 5 lbs!! I think having motivation from eachother will push us so we look hot and sexy in our dresses!!!

Aw I’d do weigh-in with you all but I promised my sis I’d do it with her–we already started a bit ago! I’ll keep you all informed (and hopefully you’ll keep me motivated) with my progress though!
Post # 14
i’ll totally do it! i’ve been looking for exactly this!
‘ll report back on what i’ve done and if any inches have come off…. (but no WAY am i posting my weight and measurements on the worldwide web! is anyone doing that?)
so…. we report back here on Sunday?
i’ve been exercising every day: alternating yoga, a two-mile jog, and the “Wedding Workout” video from Women’s Health magazine.
i haven’t weighed myself in literally years. so i’ll focus on inches. okay?
and, i need my butt whooped for the bad food habits i have! maybe writing down my progress here for the last few weeks will help me quit eating mashed potatoes every night.

Yeah, lets just post if we’ve lost weight and where we loose inches
