  • Hiya,

    Like you ive put on afair bit of weight over christmas and forgot start a diet before thinking my wedding was ages away! I get married in June so i only have 4 months left, i decided to get my backside in gear as my new years resolution and lose some weight. Bought myself an excerise bike as i hate gyms! Ive lost a stone in 6 weeks which i am well chuffed with. Just been having fruit for breakfast, weightwatchers soup for my dinner with a bread roll and a healthy tea. Also cut out the five thousand cups of coffee i used to drink at work and replaced with loads of water. Then ive had to grit my teeth and make myself do an hour a night on my exercise bike. I stopped going out and drinking laods as well cus that wasnt helping.

    Im sure you'll be fine, let me know how you get on.

  • Hi Girls

    Don't fret pawprints, you will be fine. I have lost 1.7 stone and want to lose another half a stone. I have a ian stuart wedding dress and all his models look fantastic in them as they are so tiny so i'm paranid! my wedding is also in july - 21st but my hen is a month before and i need to look good in a bikin by then! I would recommend just upping the exercise and doing classes at a gym rather than trying to stay motivated in the gym, I went from doing nothing for ages to doing between 5 and 8 classes a week and it's worked for me. It's hard going but the dress is keeping me motivated so i'm sure you will find that too once you start exercising more - and you get used to it, it's almost addictive once you get going!

    good luck and keep us informed with how you are doing!

    If anyone has a good tummy trimming tips i'd love to hear them as that is my problem area!


  • Hi all,

    Have you thought about a personal trainer at the gym?

    I had a baby 14 months ago and had my 1st dress fitting last night. I have only had a trainer since beginning of January and have dropped a dress size. I use the personal trainer once a week and then go to the gym myself twice a week.

    Had my 1st fitting last night and it was amazing I didn't need the dress taking in or out or even up or down, it just fit absolutely perfectly I was over the moon.

    Good luck and don't worry you will get there.
