The only thing I can say is to do everything you possibly can early. Not everything can be done early, but try your best, DONT PROCRASTINATE! There will ALWAYS be too much to do the week of the wedding. I'm a May 2010 bride :) good luck!
I'm really struggling and I only have 4 months left. The best advice I have to keep you sane is yoga. Even if the only benefit you get is focusing on not falling over - that's 60 minutes you're not thinking about your cake and the limo!
Talent is cheaper than table salt. What separates the talented individual from the successful one is a lot of hard work. --Stephen King

I'm a bride with a little under 3 weeks to go! I didn't have a goal weight for the wedding (I already bought my dress and was actually a little worried I might lose TOO much weight!) but I've lost 12 lbs, which may not sound like much but feels like the world to me (I was stagnant for a YEAR).
Now that I am getting closer to the wedding I am paying strict attention to my health. I have been sleeping a lot more, running regularly, strength training with hubby-to-be and making sure we eat lots and lots of vegetables! My "diet" methods are Substitution and Gorge On Veggies! I love baking cookies this time of year, so I am taking on the challenge of using whole grains and less sugar.
Even though my wedding planning has gone smoothly and everyone has been so helpful, I am still stressed and tired. It will happen to all brides! Give yourself spa days (at-home doesn't bust the bank), naps, long walks and lots of gushy Rom Com movies. It is like a race: just beforehand, you need to taper or else you will exhaust yourself before you even get started.

I feel the same way 20 is my goal but i basically just want to feel better and be fit! I think the best way to get your energy up would be to just plain do cardio. Eating proten and good carbs acctually helps because you dont feel that carb load I would recomend some toast with a slice of cheese to get you going.
Hey everyone, Your wedding day is supposed to be the happiest day of your life right? Shouldn't that also mean that you are fit and feel great on that day? In about 5 weeks I have lost 7 lbs and have been exercising everyday since then. Even if I don't lose a total of 20lbs by me wedding in June, I want to feel the best I have ever felt both physically and mentally. Plus, wedding are insane!!!! so having a lot of energy is important. Especially for avoiding your insane new in laws who feel everything should be done a certain way . If anyone has any exercises, ways to get your energy up, or dieting tips, I would love to hear them!
