Getting married - want to look good

Postby mazz78 » Thu Jul 06, 2006 4:56 pm

Hi all,
I am getting married in November this year (exactly 4 months and 6 days to go) and need to tone up and lose some excess weight around my stomach. I want to wear a strapless dress, and I don't have much time!
Any other brides to be on here?

Hi Maz and welcome to the forum.

I'm not a bride to be but when I reach my goal I will be smaller than I was when I was a bride. Told hubby I will get into my wedding dress again. He was thrilled.....actually he was thrilled as he knows when I fit into the dress I will also be able to get back into the sexy underwear I wore that day. :roll:

Good luck on your weight loss journey glad to have you aboard. :D

Hi Maz, welcome to the forum.
I'm not getting married but I'm trying to lose weight for my daughters wedding so I won't be the fat mother of the bride.
I believe there are a couple of ladies here losing weight to get married, so I guess you won't be alone.
Congrats on the up coming wedding.

Hi Maz,
I am now a bride to be, but started before that happened. If you want to tone up quickly, I can't emphasise exercise enough. I have the video of Denise Austin's Pilates for Every Body and I credit it with really toning my arms. Not entirely sure about the tummy as that's my weak spot, but Pilates will build the abs, you just have to lose the fat to see it :roll: .
I'm sure whatever you do will help though, but don't get too hung up on it, you will not want to remember the day by how much you worried about how you looked.
Cheers,
Tegan
35kg lost. (November 2005 - October 2006)
15kg gained again (as at October 2010).
Back to the drawing board - Let's do this thing!
