First thanks for even reading the post. 🙂
I just got engaged on monday, and we set a date for Aug 17, 2013. I wasn’t too worry about not having enough time to loss any weight for the wedding but i forgot all about the engagement photos. Fiance wanted to take them right away but me on the other hand don’t.
So now is time to loss some weight! I was thinking about trying to loss maybe like 2lbs aweek. I’m looking for a workout partner or partners. I guess the more support the better, right?
I’m thinking of doing P90X or maybe just the gym with weights and cardio…idk yet
So my question is will you be my workout buddy?

@jn732: Hi you, just wanted to offer encouragement! I’m way too lazy to commit to exercising to a schedule, but it definitely is a good idea to have a workout buddy! Mind you as so many of the bees will tell you, all the exercise in the world can’t make up for a bad diet, if you have that going on. Best of luck though!
I’d be inclined to hold off on the e-pics if you’re so far from your wedding date, if you intend to use them in save the dates and similar? You might end up not liking them any more if you’re loking at them too long.

Maybe give yourself till this summer? You’ll have time to shape up a bit, and it’ll also probably be nicer for pictures. Setting a date will be a good motivator!
My husband didn’t want to get e-pics because he wasn’t happy with how he looked, so we never did. It makes me sad. Definitely don’t skip out on it! You’ll want those pictures some day. But do do it when you are feeling proud of yourself.

I’ll happily be your accountability to buddy if you need one! I’m always here for advice and encouragement as I am trying to firm up before the wedding (though mine is later in the summer). It’s hard to be the only one working out and it’s a little easier if you have someone to say “Hey, how’d the workout go today?”

@jn732: I agree with Aunt Pol. You have plenty of time for e-pics so don’t stress yourself yet! I got engaged in Oct 2009 – getting married June 2011 – doing e-pics in March!! We waited because we were moving and now we are waiting on nicer weather! But I don’t see the problem in waiting a year or so. Even if you want to use them in your STD’s, you will have time.
PS I am working on losing the final 16lbs….only have until June! Happy getting healthy
