Im a little sad after my first fitting yesterday…my seamstress told me that at the next appointment, I have to be at the weight I’m going to be for the wedding. The next appointment is in 4 weeks!! I really had my heart set on losing 6 more pounds, but I just don’t see that happening in 4 weeks…

cestvrai: It totally depends on what you weigh now, but for a lot of people 6 pounds in 4 weeks isn’t unreasonable.Still depends on what you weigh, but 6 pounds isn’t huge, and you might not look that different with it gone.
Are you aiming for a specific number on the scale (not a great idea) or a specific look/feeling?

MOHlookingForIdeas: I weigh 126 and I’m 5’4″. So far I have been losing at a rate of 0.5 lbs per week with diet and exercise. I think I would have to go pretty crazy with the exercise to lose 6 pounds in a month.
I am aiming for 120 specifically, which I know is silly..but I’m the kind of person that really needs a concrete goal. If I don’t reach that number exactly, it’s ok as long as I feel good!

I was fitted into my MOB gown, and then gained 4 pounds in 4 weeks, due to stress eating. The gown was so tight on me, I was half miserable, the whole night. I think it’s better for it to be a little loose, than a little small.
