I’m picking up my dress nxt wknd….and not looking forward to it! When I bought the dress I needed to lose about 10lbs for it to fit the way I wanted it to. I was doing really well eating better and walking every night. Had lost about 5lbs.
Then planning started getting more stressful and the weather got super hot. I started getting push back from my bridesmaids and my mom. My maids and I picked out a dress that they all said they liked and were ok with the price then all of a sudden they werent ok with it and somehow I was the bad guy. My mom is upset because my stepmom is going to be in some of the pics and she doesnt think she should b and feels I’m disrespecting her by having her in the pics and has said that shes not coming to the wedding. SHe has been nagging me about my weight…claiming she just worried about my health but going as far as to tell my niece and nephews that I needed to watch my weight.
So I’m completely stressed out and depressed! So much that I cant hardly get off the couch once I’m home from work. Some nights I even come home and just go to bed. I have stopped cooking dinner, we just go out to eat most nights.
Its pretty pathetic,,,,I’ll admit it! I need to get out of this funk!!!! ANy suggestions?

I’m sorry you are feeling so down. Why don’t you take a day for you. Get up get dressed nice, do something fun with your hair and make up and do something you enjoy. Go hiking, read a book, bake, whatever makes you happy. Take lots of pictures throughout the day. If you are doing something you like, and feeling good about how you look those pictures can be a great motivation when you have a bad day. Hang in there- I’m sure you are going to be gorgeous in your dress!

That sucks that you’re getting this kind of stress… I’ve gone through a lot of the same thing. My future in-laws are very adamant about me and my fiance losing weight before the wedding (as in, “We’ll pay for the wedding if you lose 30 lbs.”) but you know what? It can’t get you done because when all is said and done, this day is absolutely and totally about YOU and YOUR husband and YOUR life together. As far as everyone else goes, they can shape up or ship out. You can get through this! Best of luck. 🙂
