I’ve lost 23 pounds so far and the wedding is 5/7. I have my first dress fitting on April 2nd. When I tried my dress on, there was a hint of skin that was still showing through the modesty panel (it’s a corset back). The shop said they can just order me a larger panel if needed (that was about 3 weeks ago). I told them and myself that the larger panel wouldn’t be necessary; I’d get more weight off for sure!
Well, I haven’t. I haven’t gained (which is great), but I haven’t been going to the gym as much (my car broke down and w/me and FH carpooling it’s through me off my “schedule”). I look at other brides in the gown I’m wearing and I just feel like it doesn’t look quite right on me and that’s probably because I have another 10-15 to lose.
I’m so mad at myself and wondering why I procrasnate on things like this! If I go hardcore for the next 12 days, but I’ll maybe lose 5 pounds tops, which won’t make much of a difference.
Any other bees go through something similar during their weight loss journey?

I lost motivation when I tried on my dress in early Feb and it fit just right! So I gave up the workouts and ate my heart out because I can’t afford to have it taken in if I lose any more.
Well- tried it on yesterday and apparently it’s time to get back to the gym. My weight fluctuates a LOT so I’ll have to be constantly trying the dress on and fine-tuning in the weeks leading up to the wedding.

I’ve definitely lost my motivation, unfortunately 🙁
From November until March, I lost 30 lbs on WW and people keep telling me, “you look great!”…well, compliments make my head big and then I start thinking that if I don’t lose any more weight, I’ll still look fine. WRONG! I went from 206 lbs to 175 lbs and I’m 5’6 1/2. I NEED TO BE THINNER! It doesn’t help that there will be 700 people at my wedding, either! I need someone to whip my booty back into weight loss mode ASAP!

Count me in! Although I punish myself by not allowing myself wine and dessert, I am hungry and frustrated. I am working out and just not seeing the results- I mean, not even cheating on weightwatchers and GAINING weight! WTFluff!!! So yeah, a lazy night of tv and sweatpants on the couch, instead of the gym- tis.

I’m stuck in that lack of motivation mode myself! I was losing weight just fine and then one day I just stopped working out and haven’t been back on track yet! this was almost a month ago… I wanted to lose at least 20 pounds more by june but IDK I cannot get it together… and I dont know how to make myself get up and go… maybe we can start some kind of encouragement group… I noticed that when my friend and I were losing together and we were accountable for weighing in and reporting to each other our habits and tracking our weight loss with each other I stayed motivated because I had someone to be accountable to. It wasnt just me and I couldn’t sneak or lie to myself because someone knew what was going on…
@littlecat: have u been measuring yourself? sometimes we lose inches before we lose pounds, especially if you are lifting weights or doing strengthening exercises, muscle starts to form and that may make us heavier at times… I measure and weigh so that lets me keep better track of successes…

Yup I am going through the same thing.. but my first fitting is in two weeks. We actually went back to the gym this week but then on Friday people at work were telling me how good I looked and so Fiance and I went out to dinner. It’s hard to stay motivated..
