    I know i can do with some inspiration sometimes so thought if we can all help each other why not.

    Thats the best thing about WW plan is you can tweak almost anything into it being more WW friendly

    Hi Joanne, although I am a freelance makeup artist I saw this and thought I would appreciate the referral. I have been using a personal trainer with a group of 3 other friends (which makes it very affordable) 20 per session for 4 people and 15 per session for 3 people.

    I have referred many of my brides to him this year as I have noticed a massive difference. Brides who have had children and were struggling to loose the 'baby tummy' have seen a massive improvement. The average is 3 times a week. It's like boot camp yet not as nauseating and on a group if friends or all females it's really enjoyable.

    If you would like not info
    I can send his number on. He trains people from East Kilbride /cambuslang. I travel 30 mins 3 times a week because I think he's so good.

    Hope this helps

    I have been going to classes and on/off healthy eating for about 2 years haha. I'm definitely in better shape now than when I first got engaged, but I felt over the past few months I've hit a bit of a brick wall & nothing's changing. So I decided to bite the billet and book a PT for the last few weeks up to the wedding.

    I booked a block of 12 sessions & have been to 10 so far & can see a difference in the 5 or so weeks I've been going. It's great to get one on one time with someone who is helping you with your own goals,
    instead of just a generic class. He also gave me a diet plan which has been pretty simple to follow, although I've not been 100% strict with it I've seen big changes. My only regret is not going to him sooner. I still go to my classes aswell as seeing him, but with 2 weeks to go until the wedding I know I'll never be the size I wanted when I pictured myself on my honeymoon.......but I'm happy with what I've achieved till now

    No doubt I'll be back to him to work off all the honeymoon goodies xx

    Wow, well done on going & sticking to it. I have just under 6 months but have had to lay off the exercise due to health issues but have been really good with eating, cant wait to get back into it & give the last big push for it

    I've always do e some sort of exercise even before we got engaged but I wasn't really as dedicated as I am now & wouldn't mind so much if I missed a class or too, now I feel guilty if I miss something, think maybe it's because I enjoy it now, whereas before I felt it was a bit of a chore.

    I'm not the best with eating though, I have little self control over goodies haha especially this week, think I'm getting pre-wedding munchies instead of pre-wedding nerves! xx

    Please don't write this off, as I wish someone had told me this before the wedding (or, to be honest, when I was in my teens)...

    Lift weights.

    Seriously.

    Take up powerlifting, or weightlifting, or natural bodybuilding, or anything that involves barbell strength training and keep a tab on how much you eat (I lost weight eating 2000 calories a day and now eat around 2500-3200 to maintain my weight). I was a size 16-18, I'm now a size 8-10 and I'm not even close to being "bulky" or "manly".

    I was always overweight and doing yo-yo diets with no lasting success. Now, I'm a healthy weight and actually curvier than I ever was (in terms of proportions).

    Hey all

    Just thought I'd share what I've been doing - Kayla Itsines 12 week Bikini Body Guide. She's an Australian fitness trainer with a huge Instagram following. I started following her on it and saw all the photos she posted of girls before and after pics of using her guide so I decided to buy it myself.

    It's basically a circuit routine of simple exercises like squats and lunges etc, you can do in a gym or at home. Each session takes half and hour and it really focuses on toning up. The intensity of the exercises builds up each week you use it. I've noticed a difference already and only been following it for 5 weeks. The guide has pictures of her actually doing each exercise which I find really useful. I just printed it out and take with me to the gym. Or do it at home if I can't get to the gym.

    If anyone is interested in having it, if you give me your email address if I will email to you
