@blondie_bride: Im 5’5 and anywhere between 143-150..on my wedding day Id be happy being around 135-140 which would make me a size 3-5 (8-10) in wedding dresses. My body adds muscle like no other and I need to get back on the toning bandwagon. Ill keep yall updated 🙂

For brides with smart phones, I am using an awesome free app called “Calorie Counter” which calculates your recommended calorie intake and you add what you eat during the day! I’d give it a five star rating for keeping me and Fiance on track of what we are actually eating.

I don’t really need to lose weight but I am focusing on staying trim, and keeping healthy. I plan on re-beginning my yoga routine (it’s been a few weeks, so busy!). Let’s keep each other cheery and motivated!

I’M IN!!!! Will it be on this thread, or are you starting a new thread?  Either way, I will be looking for it! 

I got to my heaviest not too long ago — 5’11 and 181.  I have been working out a lot and eating better, and am now down to 174, but the difference is larger than most of my weight loss attempts, as my arms, belly, legs, and hips are all getting smaller, and my muscles are getting bigger.  Right now I’m switching my focus to a little more cardio (will still keep up with weights but was hitting them HARD before), and have tweaked my diet a little for more weight loss (only one to too sugar treats and  one cheat meal per week).  I am feeling the weight come off a little faster as I have gotten more into my program. 

Heaviest weight: 181

Current weight: 174

Weight goal number 1: 175 (DONE- Sept 19th)- buy new cute dress!

Weight goal number 2: 170 (hair done)

Weight goal number 3: 165 (new workout clothes)

So on and so forth………..

Final weight goal: 150

Count me in ladies.  I am (gulp, can’t believe I am putting this on the internet!) 5’2 and about 150lbs, would ideally like to be closer to 115-120/lbs.  I was about 115 when I met my fiance 5 years ago and I would like to be back to a healthier weight for my size/stature by the wedding. 

I have been trying to run about 2.5mi after work a few times a week when my schedule permits, and also running with co-workers T/Th at lunch about the same distance but at a slightly slower pace.  I need to start adding weights/body weight excerises to my routine more often.  And I am going to try to get back into swimming when I have the time.

Can’t wait to hear about your progess and encourage each other!

More smartphone fitness app suggestions (I work in mobile apps for Wedding Party and own an Android)…  Good apps for Android – Cardio Trainer, Noom, and MyFitnessPal  Good apps for Window Phone – Life Tracker and Fitness Trainer.  Sorry iPhone bees I am not familar with that platform! 

@kcoconut I love your reward system!

I’m in! I’m 5’10 and 165.7 pounds. I was at 180 in february, which was my heaviest ever. I want to go back down to 125, which was my weight before moving to the US a year ago. So a loooong way to go!

I’m in too! I’m currently 5’4″ and 125lbs. I have a very small frame so every pound shows. Mostly I need to really tone up. Everything on me jiggles and I’ve recently noticed that I have horrible overhanging, armpit fat so that has to go!

Good luck everyone!

I will bite!  I am 5’6 and weigh 124.  I have been working on losing weight since January.  I have lost 21 pounds, and I am 4 pounds away from my goal!  For my wedding, I mostly want to tone up and not gain anymore weight unless it is from muscle.

I went and swam laps this morning with my Maid/Matron of Honor and her husband, first time since college!  I will definitely be sore tomorrow.  Any one else have weekend exercise plans?

Count me in, girls!  I don’t really want to discuss numbers but I have 40 pounds to lose! (But I’d be happy with 30).  I have to tone up as well.

I’m a June 30th girl (almost July) – can I join in too??

I’ve already started loosing and hit 10lbs lost today! YAY 🙂  I’m hoping to loose another 30 before the wedding then I’ll evaluate and see if I want to keep loosing or I’m happy where I’m at.

I’m short (just over 5’0) – so every pound really shows. I’ve always been curvy, so I don’t expect that to change.

I use myfitnesspal.com to track all my food and exercise. If anyone else is using it and wants to be friends over there, just send me a message and I’ll give you my screen name. I also swear by my heartrate monitor as I really know how many calories I burn when I workout.

Good luck to everyone!

I am in! I don’t have too many girly friend since moving for my fiance’s job which equals zero support!

I am at my heaviest after the loss of my best friend earlier this year and am fine with how I look (we joke that I have “Mad Men secretary curves now!) but due to the nature of the weight I gained I don’t want the visual reminder on my wedding day.

After procrastinating and using Colorado altitude as an excuse not to workout I’m trying to ease into a workout routine again!
