The Lounge What is a bridal luncheon? Apr 24 2014

I'm in the South, but here a bridal luncheon is traditionally thrown by the bride for her bridal party. The typical attendees include bridal party, Mother, Mother-in-law, sisters of the bride/groom, and grandmothers.  And usually that is when the bride gives gifts to her bridesmaids.  Also, it's usually in the week prior to the wedding.

Thank you!  That's what I read when I googled it.  I'm really confused because she said she was having it for "me".  I wonder if that means for me, for my bridesmaids?

I'm very confused.

Maybe this would be a good time for me to do the bridal party gifts regardless. 

I feel rude and a little dumb asking her the specific purpose, you know? 

Maybe I should just include my mom, grandma, aunts, and bridesmaids from my side.      

Sorry, I forgot that part. Yes, someone typically 'throws' the bridal luncheon for you. You don't do it yourself :) So I'm assuming this is what she is wanting to do for you! I would include the moms, grandma's, aunt's (if they are close) and then bridesmaids.  And if your fiance has a sister, include her too.

ETA:  If your family/bridesmaids aren't familiar with what a bridal luncheon is either, I would make sure you tell them it's not a shower so they don't think they have to bring gifts.

Have you calculated your BMR? I've had great success eating right at my BMR on non exercise days and then bump it up another 200-250 calories on exercise days, depending on the workout.

What are your stats?

How did you come up with 1200? I'm guessing that is way too little for you. When you only have 10 pounds to lose you can't be as aggressive with the weightloss as you once were.  I would re-calculate and aim to lose 1 lb a week. Make sure you choose an appropriate activity level when calculating or make sure to log all of your exercise.  Try and eat 500 less than you burn and you should be on the right track.

Well 2 pounds in 4 weeks is actually a healthy 0.5 pound weightloss per week.  Depending on how much you have left to lose this may be a good rate for you.  Have you used the CC calculators to determine an appropriate calorie range? Are you logging food and exercise and keeping a deficit?

The only way I am able to exercise Mon-Fri is to do a video at home after I get all the kids to bed (3 of them!).  I alternate between 30 to 60 minute videos, 3x a week depending on how exhausted I am.  It's hard. I'll be honest.  Almost every night I don't want to do it. I try to talk myself out of it from the moment I get off work until I'm pushing play.  What has worked well is when I get home I immediately go change into my workout clothes. 90% of the time knowing I'll have to change out of my workout clothes into pj's without having exercised is enough to motivate me.  It takes dedication. You have to want it. The evening is the only time I can do it. I look forward to the weekend when there is more time and I can get outside for a run.

You can do it. If you want it bad enough, you will find the time :)

Hanging around 141.5 lately.  Hubby and I are trying for baby #3 so I'll be maintaining and not trying to lose for a while.  Sometimes I think I'm crazy, I just lost nearly 50 pounds and now I'm wanting to get pregnant and have to lose weight all over again!!!

143 this week

I had a great run last weekend. Thanks everyone for the well wishes. I've signed up for another on Dec 3. I've enjoyed having fitness goals instead of number goals.

I plugged your stats into the burn meter with an activity level of moderate-which you are if you workout 5 times a week.  It says you burn 2110 on exercise days. To lose 1lb a week subtact a 500 cal deficit and you get 1610. This is how much you should be eating.

"I am consuming between 1300-1400 calories a day some less..but not more"

This is too low.  I found another thread you started a while back about pretty much the same thing...you didn't take most of the advice on the forum. Why not ? What you are doing now is not working. Based on your stats you should be eating around 1600 calories.

Thank you so much for those very nice compliments Shane. You are right; I am too hard on myself.  I have to remember how far I've come. I'm not where I want to be, but I'm closer then I was yesterday. Thank you again.
