I lost a substantial amount of weight for my wedding and then gained most of it back the weeks before. I can’t put too much pressure on myself to lose weight, otherwise I take unhealthy approaches to do so. 2 years ago

I have to lose atleast 30lbs in 3 months! I just had a baby 6 weeks ago and have to lose all of that weight. I’ve already lost 30lbs and want to get about 5lbs lower than before I got pregnant. This sounds terrible, but I’m so jealous of all of my bridesmaids. They’re all a size 0 or 2 and while I love them to pieces, I’m very insecure around them.
I absolutely despise going to the gym so I will need to find exericises to do at home. Any ideas/tips will be very appreciated :) 3 years ago
I’m getting Married in May 2009 and I need to loose at least two dress sizes before then. I’m not really sure where to start and with the holidays starting now it will be harder than ever… 4 years ago
I want to lose about 10 lbs for my wedding which is in 78 days (but who’s counting?) or 11 weeks. That sounds doable right?
The capped sleeves on my gown inspire flashbacks of the tricep chub that was my bat mitzvah.
Bathing suit shopping at Target yesterday revealed a pretty gruesome picture of my legs…not an issue with a full-length wedding dress, but certainly an issue for the honeymoon in Hawaii that follows!!
Now that school’s out I have much more time to exercise and prepare healthy meals for me and Erik. Also more time to plan…which many times is the hardest part. We’ll see how that goes!

I’m getting married in October and I need major help! I am 5’5 210 lbs and I want to get back down to my high school weight 150-160. I got a promotion 3 months ago and gained 16 pounds! Im having a hard time just getting motivated because I get so discouraged that I cant do it. I need someone who wants to motivate each other or help me do something to lose this weight. Ive tried so hard but nothing works. 5 years ago

I have a while to go before my Sept. 2008 wedding but I’m starting my weight loss now! I’m around 230 and want to get back to my high school weight of 140.
One of my dreams is to make him cry when he sees me! He always tell me how beautiful I am, I want to take it to the extreme for my wedding day. I want to see a tear or two roll down his cheek! :)
I’m not doing anything special to lose weight but working out & trying to eat right. Any suggestions or ideas to keep me on the right track? 6 years ago
I was already small but I had bought a UK size 6 wedding dress as I’d ordered it from US and I was confused about the sizes so I ordered it too small!! Left it till the last minute to lose weight, I lost about 9lbs in 2 weeks!! Not the healthiest way to go about it but at least I looked good in the dress!!! haha 6 years ago
My fiance and I got engaged about a month ago, and decided on a summer 2007 wedding. YIKES! I am about 5’8’’ and 240, and was about 190 in high school. (what happened?!) So, 50lbs in 4-5 months sounds intimidating, but I think I can do it. I want to get the all popular strapless gown, and I’m too scared to let my chubby arms be seen in public, let alone all of our family and friends!
I’m going to try to go to the gym at least 3 times a week, depending on my schedule. I have a full time job and am also a full time college junior, so I am going to work extra hard to accomplish my goals. I feel trapped in such a tight schedule, but I REFUSE to even THINK about looking at ordering my wedding dress until the chub is gone!
Alright girls…..I’ll update in about a month to trakc my progress…cause everyone knows starting is the hardest part!! 6 years ago
I’m 5’6”, about 205 pounds last time I checked a couple weeks ago. I’m down from my all time high of over 225, but I’ve gained about 10 pounds over the past 5-6 months because my fiance and I moved in together and his eating habits are horrible!! I find myself trying to cook and have things on hand that he likes, but it doesn’t help my figure at all!! I don’t even have a dress yet, so that’s not a huge deal, but at the same time, I want to look sooooo good in my dress!!! Well, i guess I’ll update as time goes…maybe in a month. 6 years ago
THE PROGRAM I USED WAS TAKE SHAPE FOR LIFE. IT IS A SUPPLEMENT PROGRAM AND IS VERY AFFORDABLE, ABOUT 1.30 PER PACKAGE. THEY HAVE SHAKES AND BARS, SOUPS AND PUDDINGS, ALSO SNACKS..ALL IS A SOY PROTEIN BASED PROGRAM, AND IT IS FULL OF NUTRIENTS AND DELICIOUS. THERE ARE NO CONTRACTS OR START UP FEES AND YOU ORDER ONLY WHAT YOU LIKE. I LOST ABOUT 60 POUNDS IN 3 MONTHS, AND I HAVE KEPT IT OFF. HERE IS THE SITE WWW.SHRINKHEALTHY.TSFL.COM I HAVE SEVERAL FRIENDS WHO ARE BRIDES TO BE AND THEY ARE LOSING WEIGHT WITH THE PROGRAM UNTIL THEY REACH THEIR GOAL. 6 years ago
I am 220 lbs. at 5’4”. When me and my fiance started dating a year ago, I was 206. What happened? Too many late night pancake dates and cookies.
I started working out about 1 month ago, but an still struggling with “the food thang”. My dress fits, but I want to be smaller. I know this journey will go beyond the wedding. It is possible to be in the 150s again. 6 years ago
I’m getting married March 18th and just put my dress on last night to get it altered and it’s TOO small! I’m busting out of it. I thought I was going to cry. So I have 3 weeks to lose as much weight as possible. Today I’m fasting, well, liquids only. I want to shrink my stomach so I will fill up faster when I start eating again tomorrow. Starting tomorrow I’m going to do the no carb diet and then 10 days before the wedding I’m going to do this: http://www.healthynewage.com/lose-10-pounds.html. I’ll let you know how it goes. Wish me luck and let me know if you have any advice! 7 years ago
I think my biggest problem is that I don’t just eat because I like to eat. I eat when I’m sad, happy, bored.. anything! I know alot of people share this problem with me. Only thing is.. those people had to deal with it! Not me! Now I am looking in the mirror and seeing what I have dreaded the most in my life. This is by far my highest weight. For a long time I used the post pregnancy weight as an excuse. As we come up on my son’s first birthday, this is no longer looking like a reasonable thing. We have set a wedding date for September 2, 2006. This is not near enough time to lose the weight I “need” to lose. I do think I would feel better about myself if I could just lose enough to look good in that wedding dress! This is still going to be tough because I am having my wedding dress made so I will have to be close to the right size when she starts making it. Right now I weigh in at about 210.. at 5’6’’. I hate typing that. I don’t tell anyone and I don’t admit my weight. I just avoid it. I can’t do that anymore or I’m not going to get any happier. I am 20 years old and I have my whole life ahead of me, I don’t want to spend it FAT! I want to be able to play with my son and not get tired. I want to be healthy enough to meet my great grandchildren. Most of all.. I want to be HAPPY.. with myself, with my body, in general. My weight has always held me back from happiness. I know that shouldn’t determine my happiness, but in a big way it does. I know that losing my desired weight will not make my life perfect.. but I think it will play a big part in my happiness and how I feel about myself. I have spent the last year since my son’s birth yoyo dieting. I would lose and gain the same 10-40 pounds. I lost about 50 lbs right after he was born and have gained back 30 of those pounds. I know how unhealthy this is for my body.. but I get so desperate not to have to look at myself anymore I am willing to do anything! I’m noticing a pattern here and obviously this isn’t doing me any good!! So here I am asking for support from people in a similar situation.. trying to get thinner to look better in that dress! Maybe since you share the same fears and goals as I do, this will help me a little bit. I laughed at myself as I rewrote the self reminder to be emailed to myself daily reminding myself to “lose weight for wedding”.. I was creative with it LOL.. Anyway.. wish me luck I have a long way to go and little time to do it in! 7 years ago
Well, I read the entries so far and I get the sense we are all in the same boat. I really don’t want to be a heavy bride, I want to feel like a “woman” and love what I look like and forever be proud of my wedding pictures. Well at 236 pounds and 5 feet 1 inches – there is no way I will come near achieving any of that. I’m getting married in July 2007… I know that seems pretty far away but to lose 100 pounds, without surgery, I am going to need 18 months. I know the only way to do this is to diligently count my calories everyday and to get into a committed exercise regimine. One day at a time, but today, it just seems like so much work is going to have to happen to have my goals met. I simply doubt myself that I can do this. But I am willing to try…. and I need some support. 7 years ago
Since the wedding’s on hold, I guess I’m not losing weight for the wedding. Still need to lose weight for its own sake though. Or at least, for my health’s sake. 7 years ago
I’d like to get back down to 10st 7lbs. The only times I’ve ever managed to lose weight have been through exercise (summer jobs delivering mail) rather than diet.
So if I’m really serious about losing weight I need to get moving. More attention to the ‘eat less’, far more of the ‘move more’! 8 years ago
