I did it - RSVP'd to Rome wedding!!!

Postby Hayley » Thu Jan 05, 2006 11:40 pm

I did it, today I RSVP'd to our friends who are marrying in a small village in Rome this June. We've been unsure whether we can afford it or not and umming and arring about it for a few weeks. Well, today we decided that we're going to be able to do it.

I'm so excited. I've never been overseas and we definitely don't want to miss this wedding (he was the best man at our wedding).

It means, however, that I am GOING to lose 23kg by 20th June!

Wow - I can't wait for the new me, the trip to Rome, the new 'skinny' outfit and our best friends' wedding.

What an incentive! Hayley.

That's great news Hayley!
My incentive to lose weight is my daughters wedding.
I don't want to be a pudgy mother of the bride hiding in the background of the wedding photo's next September.

Another great incentive! You'll do it - you'll be a stunning mother of the bride come September and you'll make yourself and your family very proud of your achievements. Find a picture of 'the outfit' you'd absolutely love to wear to the wedding and stick it on the fridge for motivation - it may help.

Keep persevering, you'll make it!

Wow, both of you, what fantastic things to look forward to! I am at the stage in life when "All my friends are getting married". 4 or 5 weddings this year, another that I know of in the next 2 years. I went to one on the 2nd of Jan. The bride looked gorgeous and even the relatively small amount I've lost got me compliments too which makes you feel oh so good!!!
35kg lost. (November 2005 - October 2006)
15kg gained again (as at October 2010).
Back to the drawing board - Let's do this thing!

I am so totally going to travel the world one day when I grow up and get a job. I've been to Japan a few years ago, but that's it.

I did a trip to Europe with a friend last October. A lot of our time was spent in Italy which I adored. Hayley, you are going to have the best time in Rome. The history, sites and people are wonderful and I've so many great memories of my trip that I still talk about it.

Not sure if you're single or not but if you are, enjoy those Italian men. If you're already taken, please bring one back for me!! :lol: he he
Cheers
Paula

It will be so good that you actually know someone there too. Because I found Italy the hardest country with the language barrier, very few speak English.

That's fantastic Hayley. What a wonderful incentive.

I've always dreamed of going to Italy, my Dad's home country. Cash has always been my problem and I don't speak the language. Although friends tell me not speaking Italian isn't a problem (but with an Italian last name I think it might be!).

Shopping for your 'skinny' wedding outfit will be great but shop in Italy for your wonderful new figure - even better!

Angel, money can be a problem, but language need not. My husband and I went on a 21 day Cosmos Coach Trip around Europe.
None of the Canadians, Americans or Australians on the coach knew how to speak Italian. We had a curior on board that explained what everything was, took us on excursions, went with the group as we purchased souveneers, and all the Hotels the coach stopped at had to be English speaking.

Dolly,

Trip sounds great. Would probably go Contiki (18-36 yr olds - been on 2 so far - NZ and NT), don't want to risk being stuck on a senior citz tour but they are bit pricey, so its something for me to work towards.

I have friends in London so want to go there also. Oh how I love to dream . . . . . . . .

Hmmmm! Shopping in Italy! I can't wait - handbags, clothes & shoes - yippee!! Oh, the food might be a problem though, I have a real weakness for Italian pastas and creamy dishes - yum, yum.

We've already thought about a beginners course of Italian, don't know if we'll do it though.
