maybe this is the motivation for you to lose the extra weight? at least you have workout buddies now! 🙂

Just like Miss Root, I use sugar free gum to curb my cravings.  I gave up sweets for Lent and it has been one of the hardest things ever!  I have a serious sweet tooth (ice cream nightly, a cookie with lunch) but now I’ve realized how those things aren’t necessary.  It’s also forced me to fill in those calories with extra fruit and veggies.

Hey Bimba, I totally understand. My BM’s are all hiring personal trainers/working out at the gym siince I asked them to be BM’s. AND my Future Mother-In-Law had a tummy tuck and is working out in preparation for the wedding. And in the meanwhile, I work really long hours and don’t have time to work out myself. So it frustrates me that everyone else is devoting all this time to making their bodies look better while I sit here and stare at a computer screen for almost 10 hours a day.

But I wanted to point out that it doesn’t matter that you have a sweet tooth, in order to lose weight it’s just about your total calories. Seriously, I did Jenny Craig and lost about 25 lbs (I am only 5’1″, so it was a LOT on me!) and even in the JC program you are constantly eating sweets. Just less total calories, more veggies, more water and more excersize. I lost the rest of the weight on my own after I stopped the program, I had started to date Fiance so it was way to hard to eat different meals than him all the time.

So keep up hope, keep trying and don’t worry about what everyone else is doing!

Two of my Bridesmaid or Best Man are hiring trainers for the wedding, but I don’t think its soley because of my wedding! I would just take it as flattery that they want to be at their best for your wedding. And ya it is annoying when a size 4 person tells you how they need to loose the chub! I’m a size 7/8 and carry all my weight in my tum tum so I can show them what real tub is!

I totally feel you here!  I have 4 bridesmaids, who are sizes 4/6, 6, 8, and 10; I wear roughly a size 20.  Everyone is working out and dieting to get ready for the wedding (including me!) but it can be really hard to hear about their weight loss woes when you could fit roughly 2 of them in my dress.  o_O  Hang in there!  No amount of weightloss will outshine a happy bridal glow.  😉

Everyone in my world is doing the same.  I really don’t worry about it because I use it to motivate me.  I can’t blame anyone for wanting to look their best for an event.  And I’m happy its special to them too.

a lot of my BMs did the same, but it didnt bother me.  They want to look their best for your day as well.  I didnt do ANYTHING extra to prepare for my wedding, evenwith everyone around me preparing it.  I kept to my normal schedule.  I seriously doubt they are doing this to upstage you, like someone said.  You got a lot of good advice, but if you NEED something sweet, eat a slice of pineapple or fruit – but moderation is deinitely key.  Use this as motivation, work out with your girls.

yeah…that’s annoying.  I’ve gained 10 lbs during this past winter and it’s frustrating me to no end.  I always wanted to be my ‘best’ weight for my wedding.  Ignore everyone else.  No one is going to be looking at them anyways.  You’re the bride!

No matter what size someone is, most feel that they should be in better shape. I’m 5″3, 110lbs & I don’t think I’m fat but I do think I’m out of shape.

Maybe your wedding was motivation for them? They’re not trying to steal the spotlight or look better than you. They’ll also have a ton of photos taken of them as well plus be in front of everyone. I don’t think they’re trying to make you feel bad or outshine you. They won’t even come close to doing so! You’ll be the center of attention & everyone will be talking about you & see your joy. I’ve never heard of a wedding where people talk about the bridesmaids or focus on them more than the bride.

Can you talk with them? Can you become workout buddies? That would help you & them too:)

I cut down on eating out (like fast food and stuff) at work and started bringing my lunch from home (usually sanwiches or salads or frozen stuff).  Somebody made a comment that I must be watching my weight for the wedding!!!  The nerve of some people!  Honestly?  I realized that I couldn’t afford to eat out everyday and it’s way cheaper to bring lunch from home.
