DATE TWIN! 😀 

YAYYYYY!

I just started up a diet and work out plan a couple of weeks ago. I would love to try and give weekly status updates!! 🙂 

I started with cutting out all soda and started eating a banana and drinking an Ensure for breakfast. I actually don’t mind the Ensure. I have cut out all fast food and bought a few Lean Cusines to try out. I have a treadmill and exercise bike I’ve started using and I have started up some Pilates!

What are your plans?!

I don’t have much of an exercise plan, but I’ve been trying to eat better.  I definitely need some motivation so I’m down for reporting in once a week.  My first goal is just to cut out soda.  I’m only on day 2 but man it’s tough!

March 5th bride here and I’ll join in! 🙂

FI and I are running in our first 5k on Sunday and then going to continue running. I’ve cut out all junk food and am only drinking water and coffee if I want some caffeine.

Here are my starting stats:

I am 5’1

Start: 143

Goal: 120

lbs to go: 23

I’m not following any particular diet, just trying to eat better in general.  Doing things like cutting out fast food and soda.  I’m a junk food junkie so that is definitely a tough thing for me. 

We can do this girls!

I need to weigh to get an actual number and not a estimate. This weekend may not be the best for me since I’m going away for a few days with my FI and family- but I’m going to the store tomorrow to get some healthy snacks for me.

The name is good sweetpea!

I’m so much better about staying on top of working out/eating right when I have someone to be accountable to! And a dress that’s hanging out in my closet that needs to fit come time for my fittings!

Oh I just started my pre-wedding shape-up! I’ve started running on the elliptical last week. I’m trying for 30 mins a day – 4-5 times a week. Also a lot of arm workouts to tone! I’m also trying not to eat huge meals, or stop when I’m full.

Here are my goals:

Height: 5’8″

Start: 138lbs

Now: 133lbs

Goal: 128lbs

I have a related question… I am having my dress made, and it’s not a traditional wedding dress so I only need to allow about a month total to have it completely done.  So, when should I do this, if I plan on dropping pounds in the next several months for the March wedding?

I am excited and want to start on the dress NOW but isn’t that a bad idea if its likely I’ll drop a couple of sizes between now and the wedding?

Currently I’m a street size 12/14.  don’t know my weight, don’t care to, but it’s around 190 and I am 5’8″.   I recently (past few months) dropped from an 18 to my current size.  Would like to be an 8/10 come wedding time.

I’m pretty happy with my overall shape, but would like to firm my tummy, and my arms, so I can decide on sleeves for the dress!

I bought my dress as a sample awhile ago. But they told me not to schedule a fitting til 2 months before the wedding. So I would assume the later the better. But if you’re like me and fear that it will take longer than expected to complete the dress, I would do it maybe 3 months before the wedding. Then if you lose more weight they just need to do minor adjustments. Hope that helps!
