..But I'm trying to lose weight

So over the past week I have been sick and wasn't able to get much done around the house because of this. My wonderful FI thought he would help me by buying some food this week. Well, all he bought was junk food. It is every where in the apt!! I can no longer stuff it all in on cupboard and act like it's not there. I did rather good at resisting the urge to eat it but I failed this morning. BIG FAIL! I know most of it was stress eating because I had to go back to work after having three days off...and I just don't like my job. Not only have I not been eating good but I haven't worked out in a week. It seems like I keep on finding excuses not to. My FI loves me the way I look but it's more then the weight for me, it's the health reasons too I want to get in better shape. So right now I am trying to accept the fact that I went against my diet and move on. Monday better watch out because I'm getting back into my workout hardcore. I would like to start sooner by I don't like working out in front of my FI. I will keep you posted on how it works.
470 days until I marry the sweetest man ever!!

The biggest loser?

I know that many brides want to lose weight before their big day and I'm right there with them. But over the past few months this has been a challenge. I am not losing weight but gaining it. Since Gerald and I moved in together I have gained at least 20 pounds! This is only since October! I have finally stopped gaining weight but now I have to try to lose all that I have gained. My current weight is 212. I still can't believe that number. I have never been this heavy before so it's a shock for me. Of course my wonderful FI says that I'm beautiful and everything but I don't feel that way. So today was the first real day of me eating healthy. SO NOT THE BEST DAY TO START THAT! On my way to work I get a flat tire, which makes me late. I get to work and nothing seems to be working write and everyone is in a bad mood. But I am holding strong and not even looking at all the junk food I could eat. I need to be strong this time. The hardest part about this is all the junk food we have in the house. Gerald loves his fruit snacks and Little Debbie snacks too much for me to take them away. So I have decided to tape pictures of wedding gowns to the cupboard. I really hope that helps me some. I also am going to try to do the Wii fit and the 30-day shred five times a week. If I want to see results I'm going to have to start working harder for them. Right now my goal is to lose 7LBS by the end of February. Wish me luck!

The first

This is my first post, so I will tell you a little about myself. I am 24 years old and live with my FI in Wisconsin. We are getting May 28, 2011. I have been lurking about many wedding planning sites and blogs for awhile now and have finally decided to make one of my own. I plan on doing a lot of DIY for the wedding and I will post as I learn. So, time for the story. I met my wonderful FI on March 18, 2009. I was out with some friends at a local night club and saw someone I hadn't seen in years. I stop to talk to them for awhile and there he was, sitting next to the wall in the booth. Turns out I had met him once before and I knew many of his friends. It was kind of like magic I would say. I was never the type of girl that went out looking to meet guys. We ended up talking the rest of the night and into the early morning. He asked me for my phone number and the next day he asked me out for our first date:) Four short months later he asked me to marry him! I said yes. We haven't been together for long but we have been through a lot in our time together and know we have each found "the one". We had planned on a Sept. 2010 wedding but decided to wait a little longer since we wold be paying for it ourselves. I love our wedding date, just wish it wasn't 475 days away. We are currently planning a wedding for around 350 people under $10,000. Wish me luck!
