Thought I’d start this thread and make it inclusive for everyone – not just those getting in shape for their wedding.
How is your special event shape-up going?
What is your special event and when is it?
What have you been doing?
What is your biggest challenge?
What have you done to address your biggest challenge?
If you have a SO, have you involved him in your plan? Is he/she working out more too?

It’s going well! Once we got engaged I started hitting the gym 4-5x a week and branching out in my workouts. So far I’ve done barre, spin, spent some time on the elliptical, walked a LOT more, and gone to pilates regularly. My clothes fit better and a couple friends have commented that I’m looking good!
Special event: wedding in October. But before that I have a friend’s wedding in two weeks and engagement photos May 9th!
My biggest challenge is definitely my diet and drinking enough water (I prefer coffee!). I need to come up with a plan to address this.
My SO thus far has been resistant to being involved, but his busy season at work should be done soon. After that he’s moving in (yay!) and then we’ll go for regular walks and cook together more. We both cook pretty healthy, so that will help!

- Wedding: May 2016 - San Clemente Church, Italy
Uhmmmm, it’s going terrible! I have gained 15 pounds in the past 2 years. From a 0 To a 4, 110-125 pounds. I’ve been small my whole life with a natural 4 pack, never had to diet or exercise. Since I turned 45 a couple of years ago, it’s crept on despite actually doing some exercise and sort of watching my diet.
Sort of is just not cutting it and I have to step it up, but unfortunately my fibroids have grown so much that I’m weak and tired all the time from anemia…or just in a lot of pain. So to get out and walk an hour with my dog is a good day for me and frankly, it just doesn’t happen most days.
I’m going to get the hysterectomy when we get home from Italy, but I’m getting frustrated because 15 pounds is a lot on my small frame and I’m only 5’4. Any suggestions or tips would be welcome.
