- Wedding: September 2013 - Creek club at ion, SC
So like many women as I got older and got comfortable in my relationship I put on a litte bit of weight. I was still pretty small but not as small as in my dancing days. My mum definitely noticed the change and told me I needed to take care of myself and although Fiance actually prefers me with a little bit more meat on my bones – I wasnt happy. I felt the weight gain was because of laziness and I was letter myself down with regards to my standards – not just with weight but with little things like not being bothered to put on make up etc etc. I know a lot of the weight gain was also because id started eating like my Fiance (hes 6ft 5 and goes to the gym 6 x a week im 5 ft 2 with no gym) also the pill made me put on weight.
Theres this one dress Fiance bought me for my bday when we first got together, its tiny but cute. A year later I tried to put it on for our anniversay, and it wouldnt zip up, I tried to put it on a few months later and it woudnt go past my thighs. Frustrated I would cry but would always try it on from time to time to see if it fit – never fit!! My Fiance would hate it when Id ty it on as id get so moody and emotional.
This year Fiance and I have to do long distance for a while so I came off the pill, started eating less and decided to take up exercise again in January so lost quite a bit of weight. I tried on the dress today and IT FITS I feel so happy and alive …. yay!!!
Now Im thinking if that dress fits me, is my wedding dress that I ordered in December even going to sit on me? The shop assistant advised me to order a size down because I was in between 2 sizes and just lose the weight but I dont think she meant this much. Or maybe id already lost some weight by December and the rest ive lost is perfect ….. uhhh Im scared. Im in a bit of a tricky situation as im living in Spain and the dress is in UK (bought wih my mum) and im going to pick it up in june come back to Spain then in July Im off to the states so I dont think I have any time for alteration nor do i know where id look outside UK plus Id prefer not to spend the money. Frustration.
Just thought Id share … any other bees order a size down? Lose weight a lot before their wedding??
