    How did the weight-loss go? I’m just starting my weight-loss journey... ultimate goal is to lose 85lbs by my wedding day. Wish me luck!

    That sounds awesome! I was slimmer and bought my dress and then I gained weight and now it doesn't look like I want it to. I'd love some support and encouragement and to give it too.

    I would double check the dress sized for Martina liana. I just ordered my dress from that designer and their size chart goes up to 28 for wedding dresses and special orders for bigger. Check with you wedding dress store. Although so good to hear you have lost so much. Good job and keep it up you will feel so good. I'm currently 25lbs down since Jan.

    Hello Kacy,

    Yes I lost so much weight that I lost almost 4 sizes, I am working on my goal of going back to pre pregnancy weight which was size 10. So I can wear my dream dress. We werent sure when we would get married still don't know exactly because there is so much going on in our lives. We own our house and stuff keep breaking off so it becomes a priority using the money for our honeymoon. So I will get the time to get fit.

    I have been sick for over a week so i havent trained but lost weight due to only 700 calories intake a day. I force myself to eat. My throat and stomach is soar so not much feeling for eating.

    I don't know how it is for you but 15-20 lbs is a size for me... If you are buying off the rack you can probably give yourself a little more time for your body to get back to normal... Unless its a sensational sale... I didn't intend to buy a dress that was too small but it was on clearance and the money I saved will more than cover the alterations.

    Daily living can be a challenge after having an accident. It is fantastic that you have so many things to look forward to, make mini goals, write them down then when its achieve celebrate with your favorite thingslike a manicure, pedicure, walk on the beach etc...

    I saw that you live in Glace bay, Stuart Mc Clean had such wonderful storied about Glace Bay Dave & Morley...We used to live in Sydney Cape Breton, and drive quite often to Glace bay.

    Wishing a fantastic day, keep on the good work it feels hard it will soon feel easier

    My wedding is coming up this november and i just gave birth to my little one 2 weeks ago. In two weeks i plan on going to look for a dress at a clearance sale and im wondering if its a waste to buy one that fits me at this weight i mean my goal is to loose at least another 20lbs before the big day, which means more $$ on alterations!

    I think taking some time off diet is ok as long as it is not binge eating! We quit smoking 7 years ago I tend to eat my emotions away. And its hard to stay away from my fh's restaurant their food is amazing! He makes the best prime rib in town and tend to bring me treats home.

    I am going back to studying first exams this Saturday!

    Oh yes the goal should be to feel good in one's skin, then you'll feel super confident and sexy which is always nice Smiley smile glad to hear that your fiancé supports you no matter what, that's the sign of a good partner Smiley laugh if you think size 5 is too small, then so be it, it's just a number and could be repurposed or passed down to your daughters if you have! Anyways, congratulations again, that is wonderful news!

    Yes, but I bought 3 dresses online and the one that fitted me the best is now way too big. I have two other one one size 14 and one size 5 . The size 5 was found online for free I got it because it is a vintage dress from 1945 with wonderful lace and a matching hat. I thought about repurposing. My mother thinks it's possible to become a size 5. I will only be skin and bones if I do. I just want to feel good about myself. My fiance loves me for who I am, I just have to feel that way as well.

    Have a wonderful Sunday Smiley smile

    Does this mean you lost so much weight that you're too small for the dress you had bought? If so, that's amazing! Congratulations!

    Hello Ladies! I lost 31 pounds since August 21, 2016. I drink 10 glass of water a day and my morning smoothies, exercise 3 times 10 minutes for stretching and do 45 minutes walk then 30 minutes yoga. Sometimes I enter all my calories on the lifesum app and burn more calories that I eat. I am currently studying so less time for catching up on up.

    So now my wedding dress really doesn't fit! I'll be selling it and saving the money for my dream dress.

    We are thinking about a destination to Greece so my current dress wouldn't have worked anyways...

    I wish you a fantastic day!

    I've tried going with a friend from work but she's insane. Like trying to compete in competitions insane. She spends 3-4 hours at the gym and I've tried going with my fiance but he does his own thing.

    My FH and I used to go through a 24 case of pop in a week. Since December 1, we've each had 3 cans. We quit cold turkey. It really sucked at first, but now we're kinda used to it. We find ourselves wanting one every now and then, but we stop each other. You just gotta find it in yourself to decide to do it, and stick to it. It's rough at first, but I promise it gets easier

    They say it takes 21 days to form a habit... good or bad... so you just have to get yourself into a schedule. I had my first meet with a personal trainer today, and boy did she kick my ass. I found though that it is only encouraging me to go back. I now know what to do and how to do it. I have a starting point anyways. Give it a shot! Maybe you need to find a gym buddy??

    The brand is PVL, and it is a whey isolate. We share one scoop of powder diluted in water. Thanks for your response! I've heard that too, I didn't think I would have too many issues, I don't have any real food intolerances.

    If your protein powder is milk based, your body may not be digesting it well. My fiance says a lot of people cant digest protein powder easily. What powder are you using?? I use bio x whey protein. I know magnum isnt that great unless its in food.

    I'm in! I've been having issues too and just jumped on the protein powder band wagon as a meal supplement. I'm a nurse and have HORRIBLE eating habits due to my ridiculous schedule. I work a lot of nights and find that I'll just snack all night because I have nothing better to do. I've also found that the protein powder is bloating me, likely because I am lactose intolerant and it is a whey protein concentrate, which is supposed to be better for those who suffer from lactose intolerance, but can however still cause some bloating. I'm going to try the lactose intolerance pills before drinking the shakes and see if that makes a difference.

    I also have a gym membership and RARELY go. I find excuses not to go (the gym is literally a block from my house). I've purchased my dress already and still have a year and three months before I need to wear it but it's literally on my brain daily about how I'm going to look in it. I have a lot of self confidence/body image issues due to a previous relationship. I've been out of the relationship for nearly 3 years but it still, unfortunately, affects me daily.

    Any encouragement I can get would be amazing from you ladies. I keep telling myself that I'm going to actually sit down and do a day to day schedule where I can see where I can fit a gym session in but again, NEVER DO IT. I'm becoming such a procrastinator these days.

    The trick is upon awakening add one tablespoon of Apple cider vinegar to a full glass of plain water one hour after drink this smoothie pre workout They recommend 10 minutes work out before breakfast than light breakfast
    I suggest to stay away from protein powder as many don't indicate exactly what is in their powders... I make religiously this smoothie recipe :Lemon Cucumber ginger smothie This recipes will give you 2 liters of smothie e ought for 4 mornings or to share1 English cucumber1 lemon peeled1 peeled diced ginger like 20 grams1 spring of mint1.5 liter of cool waterProcess in your blender and enjoy 200 ml in morning You can add avocado if you want.I was hospitalised after taking ShakeologyThe company told me that some people might be sensitive or develop allergy to it. I have a long list of allergies none of the ingredients I am allergic to was on their ingredient list. I don't mean to influence anyone's choice but I prefer going with fresh and natural ingredients.
