Re: September Weight Loss

Well I just weighed myself and had to come running straight to the computer haha. 64.5kg!!!! I've somehow managed to lose another kilo in between all the cake and chocolate I've been eating. I don't know how, but I'm not complaining. I feel sooooooooo happy! Hopefully I can magically get rid of anot...

Re: September Weight Loss

I'm in again... And I'll be weighing in more often this month (I hope!) My FSIL commented yesterday that I look like I've lost weight, so that was a great morale booster! Current weight: 65.5kg Goal by September 25: 63kg (would love to be 62, but it's just not going to happen!) Sounds like you're of...

Re: Should we invite her?

I think you definitely have to invite her. Think about how you would have felt if (before you were engaged) your partner was invited to a wedding and you weren't. I think you just have to suck it up and do it. Chances are you'll barely even speak to her on the night, so it shouldn't have any effect ...

Re: Give me some advice

I love this dress. I wish everyone dressed like this for weddings. It's very elegant and formal. I think you could skip a necklace all together and wear nice big statement earrings. Thank you . what color of the earrings do you suggest? I think just plain silver would go best. I think it'd be silly...

Re: When to stop on your WL journey?

Manda, I know exactly how you feel. I've always been in a healthy weight range but I've never actually been happy with my body/weight. I've seen photos of you and you look fantastic - but people see themselves differently to how others see them. You should be so proud of your weight loss! My healthy...

Re: August Weight Loss Thread

I've been scared to weigh myself all month because I was sure I'd put on weight. I've been eating soooo badly. I had my Hen's on the weekend and drank and ate heaps as well. BUT.... I just weighed myself and I'm 65.5 woo hoo!!! I wanted to be 63kg by now, but I'm trying to be positive and be happy t...

Re: Menu's

I felt the exact same way you do! At our tasting, our favourite thing was the pork but we ended up going with the chicken. We're having chicken and lamb for entree and chicken and beef for mains. If it was just up to me (and I wasn't considering anyone else) I would have gone with chicken and lamb f...

Re: Table floorplans...where to start???

We had choices of three table sizes (10, 11, 12). I made little coloured circles in different colours to represent different table sizes. Then I put everyones names on paper (blue for men, pink for women). I grouped people based on friendship groups and found that 75% of people were really easy to p...

Re: What sort of belt/ sash?

It really depends on your taste. If you wanted to make a statement you could go with black. Personally I would go with something similar to the dress colour or maybe something with just a small amount of contrast (champagne)

Re: income protection insurance

We don't have it - but we have over a year's worth of wages saved up that would help us pay the mortgage if something happened

I've been so unmotivated this month. I haven't weighed in at all. This week my eating habits have been disgusting grrrrr. Only 6 weeks until the honeymoon and still at least 3kg to go!!! Motivation should be easy. :oops:

Re: DIY Brides

I did all of our invitations (56 in total) and also made my veil. Mum is making my cake and my aunty is decorating it. I think it definitely saves you a lot of money DIYing but it's definitely time consuming. My invitations took a couple of months (probably over 20hrs work) cos I started completing ...

I guess it depends on how fine your hair is, but it's amazing what a bit of teasing/back combing can do!
