    I am sure you haven't put on as much as you think, besides with all the excitement the last few pounds should fall off x

    definitely, i had my dress fitting the other day and i almost didn't want to go as i was so scared the dress wouldn't go on, it did luckily but i still haven't been motivated enough to get back on track with everything that's going on!!! i'm sure when i step on the scales thursday and see the damage i might just get back into the swing of things ahaha x

    that's amazing Lesley well done!

    I didn't go last night and genuinely not intentional. I'd popped to 8andq and [email protected] to get some last minute wedding items and didn't get home til 8pm. I was expecting to get home at 7 latest which would give me half an hour to get to group. I'm going to speed week this week to minimise any damage in time for the wedding.

    fingers crossed Lesley! I'm torn between going this week and not, on one hand it would be nice to see where i'm up to but on the other i'm thinking if i get there and have a gain it may really knock my confidence for the wedding which is 2 days after weigh in so no time to do anything about a gain x

    I would say don't go as well, weight is just a number, it is how you feel that matters. WE are all so fixated on that number but you want to feel amazing in your dress and like you say, if that number isn't what you want you will feel down. No time for feeling down 2 days before the wedding, that is party time :)

    About 2 months after I was measured for my dress, I changed my contraceptive, and promptly put on a stone and a half.
    When my dress arrived, I tried it on, only to find that I had lost inches in some place but had gained on my hips.

    I gave up SW as I was constantly increasing in weight.
    Then I joined a gym, toned up, but put on even more weight.

    A few weeks ago, I was quite ill and didn't eat for 4 days. It sounds mad, but I'm so thankful for being ill for those few days as I managed to lose 8 lbs (not an ideal way to do it I know) but my tastes changed and my portion sizes became smaller.

    My first dress fitting last week resulted in my dress fitting like a glove on my hips, but has to be taken in else where.

    Now during the day I just try to snack on carrot and celery till my lunch time salad and then a proper meal in the evening.

    Looking forward to becoming the 3rd and last Mrs McLauchlan

    i know what you mean about SW, I piut on a stone there! It does not work for me as I can't portion control and still eat wway too much.

    I put on half this week, was away for the weekend so not too bad although this week is not going well!

    Maxine, if you're at the gym it might be that your turning into muscle which is heavier. I still have people say to me that I've lost weight, I'm not trying to but it's due to the gym, it's toning things up more, yet my scales say nay!

    Our wedding day - 6 October 2012

    SW has always worked for me in the past, but after changing my contraceptive, I just couldn't keep on top of my weight. I no longer attend group - but brought a pair of scales the week I last weighed and my scales were exactly the same - so now I just eat what I think is right for me, avoid my danger foods and am going it alone. I also do a little bit of gentle exercise at home too and no longer do to the gym. And its working. Just got to keep it up now for the next 8 weeks till the wedding - then its an all inclusive honeymoon. So I might be going back to SW when I get home.

    Looking forward to becoming the 3rd and last Mrs McLauchlan

    soo this thread has been quiet for a while. How is everyone doing?

    I weighed in first time since the wedding/honeymoon yesterday (it's been 2 months since i last went) and I've only gained 4.5 pounds so I'm not too upset with that, hopefully I can lose that within the next 2 weeks. :)

    that isn't bad at all, you should be pleased with that.

    I kinda up and down, but just a couple of pound off a stone, that is my next milestone which I want to get before the wedding. Got a dress fitting in couple of weeks so i would like to lose it by then. Working hard in the gym so hopefully will tone up which is most important.

    Hi All,

    Me and OH have come back from honeymoon with little podges!! We are going on a diet but not going to be too strict. We aren't going to weigh regularly etc just go for when we feel more comfortable with our bodies.

    Main things are portion control and cutting the snacks. Also need to up my excercise but I struggle due to health issues.
