I too, have been driving myself completely bananas, especially with VDay coming up …. ugh I swear this Hallmark holidays completely messes with our psyche!!!

Good for you for starting to work out! Not only does it get your mind of things, it also makes you feel good about yourself!! Good job :))

Aww that’s wonderful news!! I am happy for you, and thank you for the encouragement! Sometimes it just helps to know steps are actually being made towards that special day and makes the waiting easier and more enjoyable.

That’s great! I’m sort of in the same boat… I was going a little crazy for a month or so, but now I’m trying to enjoy myself and our relationship 🙂 

I agree that working out is a GREAT way to get your mind off of it/ setting other goals for yourself to spend time thinking about.

@Bookaholic:  wow, you sound just like me! Well, mostly…I’ve started working out, and am happy I have time to lose weight before we start getting all sorts of attention! I too think it will happen this summer, and in 4 weeks I’ve lost 10 pounds. My goal is to lose about 60, so I should be able to lose all the weight I want to by the middle of the summer! And, like you, I’ve also been watching say yes to the dress, and my SO always watches it with me! He says he really enjoys watching it with me, because it reminds him of what’s to come! 

However, I’m still a little crazy about waiting… Mostly because he keeps saying what he plans to spend his money on the next year… And he never mentions a ring! It must be coming though… I think he trying to throw me off the trail, LOL! Happy waiting to you! 🙂

girl you sound like me! Im also 24 (him 25) and have been with my SO for 8.5 years last month. I was having a very hard ‘waiting’ period like you have too. About a month ago I decided to just take care of myself and put most of my focus on diet, work, my pets and just enjoy the waiting period as much as possible… Now that it has been a month I have lost 10 pounds (10 to go!) and just feel so much better all around. And i agree, Im glad i have more time now so that i can workout and get fit so that i dont feel like a whale in my engagement & wedding pics……. Im even hoping for a summer proposal just as you are! (our anniversary is in July)…. we are waiting bee twins!!!!!

Love this! I feel the same way. Ever since SO and I had a timeline talk in early January and since he’s starting his ring fund this month, I have been completely calm and haven’t brought anything up once ..he has actually been the one to bring it up a few times (like your SO)! Now that I know we’re for sure on the same page and that it’s coming, I feel so much more at ease. Here’s to a hopefully crazy free year!

I, too, have started working out. Mostly to tone up and lose some weight, but also because I want to look g-o-o-d in our engagement and wedding pictures! & I’m also in my two best friends weddings this summer!
