Our Wedding Weight Loss Challenge!

It’s just over a year until our wedding day. O.M.G! I know in reality it’s a wee while away, but when we’re planning the day, it’s not that long away at all! So much to do and so little time, as the saying goes.
So we got to thinking, yes, I’m currently on Slimming world and doing well {albeit it, slowly!} but his food baby is getting bigger and bigger as the weeks go on. I’m not judging, not at all but it’s getting him down and I don’t like to see the man I love, unhappy. He has the ideas to get it sorted and lose it, but then life sweeps him up {like it does for us all} and before you know it, a month has passed and you’ve still not done anything about it.

So I came up with a plan to get us both properly motivated and losing the pounds for us to both feel super happy within ourselves on our Wedding day.

So welcome to post#1 of our Wedding Weight Loss Challenge!

Measuring woman's waistWoohoo!!

Saying that aloud always gets me pumped up! Just over a year for us to shed a stone or two is PLENTY of time, so no pressure but I’m really excited to seeing what our total weight loss will add up to be.
We both have aims and goals because we’re not the same size, men & woman lose weight differently and so on and with my idea to just go for it, support each other to help each other see it through being all well and good, the darling man decided to put a spin on it. He decided to make the challenge a little more interesting {God help me for agreeing to do this!}.

But he thought that dropping in the idea of whoever loses the most each month, gets to have the other one as a ‘slave for a day’. God.help.me. So there you have it, as he calls it, a decent incentive! #facepalm Men, right? But I agreed, so in his eyes it’s been set in stone so I need to REALLY get my butt into gear & beat this man so I don’t have to rub his smelly feet or sprinkle him with food he’s asked for! He’ll get himself a bell and everything, I know it. Ha!

So today is August 1st. Today it starts. This is when the gloves come off and this weight loss malarkey gets pretty real. I can’t let the Groom-to-be beat me, can I? 😉
