I just had two wedding ceremonies this year (in two different parts of the world, lol) due to family travel constraints, and both went fantastic. But the best part was that everyone commented on how much weight I had lost / how slim I was / how great my back looked / my arms were toned etc!
Just like most brides, I worked out and ate sensibly leading up to the weddings because I wanted to look amazing in my wedding pictures (which will be around forever). Anyway, I may be able to offer up good advice if any of you are looking for it!
Are you trying to lose weight or just tone up before your big day? Any problem area? What are the challenges you are facing in this area?

sabz3003: Well I eat sensibly and workout at my gym 3-4 times a week. My wedding is in 6 weeks and it’s time to go hard core for 5 of those weeks. I do alot of heavy lifting but not much cardio. I hate hate cardio, but I think I need to focus more on cardio right now than weights. I am pretty tone, just trying to slim down a bit. My dress hugs my waist and any inches I can loose on my sides would be fantastic. I’m about a 27″ waist now.
Whatchu got for me?? 🙂

me! i bought the tone it up nutrition plan a few weeks ago and i started kayla itsines’ bikini body program. i’m on the end of my first week. i’m tired of my entire family telling me i’m too fat and i need to lose weight, so this is mostly for me (and for them i guess) but mostly for me. so i can feel confident and not give a f*ck anymore once i feel comfortable in my own skin. 🙂

oh and before i started the bikini body program i was running a lot and doing toning workouts from the tone it up youtube channel 🙂 they’re free!
my biggest problem area is my waist, and a trainer during a consultation told me it’s mostly diet related. i THOUGHT i ate pretty well, but i was really only eating once or twice a day. now i eat 5 times in smaller portions and i feel much better 🙂 i’m slowly seeing results hehe

I’ve been trying but failing miserably. I lost 10 pounds earlier this year following a study I was a part of but I’ve hit a plateau and cannot seem to get out of it. I know its mostly diet related because I have more bad eating days then good. I got about 6 months until my wedding to try to get myself together. Ugh.

I’m also trying to lose a little bit of weight and tone up for my big day. I was having a lot of problems losing weight and my face was very swollen from fluid retention. Then I decided to take a break from birth control and the weight has been dropping. My stomach is a lot more slimmer and my face looks less swollen. I guess it’s harder to lose weight when you’re wrong birth control.
