- Wedding: October 2010
Ohhh my gosh, I just want to hug all of you. I’ve tried hard … but not nearly as hard as I should have tried. I look back on the year I’ve been planning this wedding and I’m like — I’m so stupid, all I had to do was lose five measly pounds a month and I’d be where I wanted to be. Instead I’m down to like, 8 weeks away and scrambling, and even still last night I went to the gym and hardly burned anything. I’m so tired and stressed out, all I want to do is nap, not go to the gym. It’s like the closer we get, the less motivated I am … :/
i wanted to read that article but for some reason I cant see anything 🙁
can someone maybe copy paste it and PM me? Like the actually article and not the link…
Im so glad im not alone…im so angry at myself and im so scared….
I am the same, I gained 20lbs since buying my dress, super depressed, but then someone told me about this ‘diet’, so I started it and have lost 12lbs since Aug 14th…can message me if you want the info I received.
I actually put on about 10 pounds within the few months after I bought my dress. About 5 months before the wedding I tried it on again and it was tight. I worried about it fitting and ended up getting to change it for a size up since I hadn’t done alterations or even taken the tags off yet. Now that is a big let down to get a bigger dress before the wedding, and it wasn’t even for a good reason, like getting pregnant. Just laziness on my end. But I looked beautiful and had a wonderful day and married the man of my dreams. That’s what I focus on.
I’m so glad for this post! I always figured I’d be in the best shape of my life when my wedding day came. But with a month to go I’m pretty much the same shape I’ve always been (except for the dark days of freshman year of college when I learned the meaning of freshman-15 🙂
I guess getting married just isn’t enough motivation for me to work out any harder or stop eating that bag of nacho doritos! It’s a little hard to swallow the fact that with 30 days left I’m probably not going to look much different for the wedding then I do know.
On the up side, like Miss Short Dress said, I didn’t have to spend any extra money on getting my dress altered!!
The article is blank for me as well. Can someone PM me too?
I did for awhile…I lost about 20 lbs before the wedding. But not exactly at my goal weight. But I loved my pictures and I loved my wedding day. I still felt gorgeous and like a bride, and I felt like people meant it when they told me I looked great. I don’t love every picture, when my arm sits weird or I have a weird expression, but I think that can happen no matter what weight you are at.
The important thing for me is that I am still working on losing weight successfully and my goal all along is to be as healthy as I can be. Looking better and losing weight just comes with that.
dont get down on yourselves ladies. I felt this sick feeling about my weight up to the day of my wedding. When i put on my dress and looked in the miror i was amazed at how good i felt. Also, my pics came out great. i look thinner in them then i do in real life (i think) SO-I was a plus size bride and I looked amazing!:)
Just make sure you watch what you eat the day or two before your wedding. Eat light so you are not bloated/gassy on your wedding day. Believe me, i was so stressed i kept forgetting to eat (i usually pig out during dress and i NEVER forget to eat). I think it was because i DIY almost my entire wedding so the week before was crazy with projects 🙂 hehe
Im not the only one who gained weight after buying the dress ,, im pretty dis. in myself as well ,, but it is what it is my honey loves me either way !!!!lol
Okay. I’m going to share my transition photos with you ladies. Don’t be alarmed, the hip-span is scary, but it won’t attack.
I had been trying to lose weight for three years with no success. I got on this program and loss 40lbs in 6 weeks. I went from a 22w to a 14/16. My behind was so big it was like a stalker. I haven’t taken an pics lately because I still want to drop 15-20 more pounds first.
