Losing weight for my wedding day and sharing the journey with you was the premise of starting this blog on Triple B. While that may have been the reason for it’s origin, it has morphed into so much more. I have found support, advice and cathartic release here. I have shared, I have cried. I have enjoyed every minute of it. This blog has become so much more than a weight loss chronicle. But with my wedding less than a month away, this week I am returning to the beginning.

The original concept for my blog on Triple B was based on my attempt to lose weight before my big day. Surprisingly it has taken on a life of its own. I’ve touched on so many other subjects I never expected to hit on. I have enjoyed every minute of it; but unfortunately my weight loss attempts are suffering. With just over three months until our wedding day my body is betraying me.
This week Shawn and I went out for my birthday. When saving for a wedding, we are learning to be creative with observing life’s milestones. [Read more...]
Okay now the holidays are over, my eight month countdown begins, and it is time to get focused. The holiday season was an “eating” good time.

The most important call a bride-to-be receives is probably the one to schedule their first dress fitting. After months of waiting, I’m expecting my call any day. I can’t wait to wear it again! Most brides prepare for their dress fittings by toning up or losing weight. I’ve been doing both: increasing fruits and veggies intake, avoiding fatty fried foods and even hitting the gym a few times a week. Although I love the results (7 inches so far!), because I’m petite and slim, I don’t want to lose any more weight or gain too much muscle. So I’m switching up my routine: more cardio and yoga.
Contrary to popular belief, this lifestyle change is about more than my dress or my wedding. I turn 35 in May so it’s more about keeping a promise I made to myself on how I wanted to celebrate this milestone. Whatever your motivation, I hope these expert tips will help you achieve and maintain your fitness goals.
