    DeppButterfly :  that is absolutely ridiculous of the bride!!! You could be pregnant and I feel totally sorry for the already pregnant bridesmaid. Can you imagine having a new born and having to feel the pressure of losing your baby weight to fit in a dress along with all the other fun stuff that comes with a new baby!!!

    Just want to pop on and say keep the momentum. You should be so proud of yourself!

    And that’s what tailors are for!

    doubledouble08 :  One of my bridesmaids joined WW and lost about 25 lbs before the wedding. I was encouraging her through it all. We went to workout classes together and carefully planned out our nights out to fit within her allowable points. She ordered a dress a size or 2 smaller than what she was wearing at the time we ordered it. In the time between buying the dress and the wedding she had her dress altered multiple times because she continued to loose weight. I never once thought about the dress and she looked absolutely stunning in the wedding. Your friend needs to get her head out of her own behind and be more supportive of your positive life changes.

    Good for you! keep up the good work! How much a dress can be altered depends on the dress, but so far out- there would be time to order a new one anyway! – even if it was rush order Dow the road.

    Your health, confidence and happiness should be #1! I’m sure your friend is just having a bridal panic moment, so just reassure her you will figure it out!

    Health trumps dress every time, I am sorry there is no other answer to that question! Good on you for making a positive change! Do NOT stop because of a dress! The dress I am sure can be taken in! Shame on your friend for not supporting your healyhy lifestyle!!!

    The voting results speaks for itself here!! Of course you should continue with your quest for a healthy weight!! 

    The bride is being irrational and not thinking straight, it’s no big deal to tailor a bridesmaids dress!

    Don’t talk to her about it any more – even sweet, well-thinking people can turn into temporary brain-zombies when it comes to their own weddings. Of course you should do the boot camp, or any other body-healhty activity that interests you. I know from personal expereince that weight loss is HARD and the desire/ability to do it comes in waves. You MUST ride the wave when it’s available! You must! 

    Just pay to tailor the sucker, and AVOID the topic with her. If she brings it up like “oh you’re looking skinny, what about your Bridesmaid or Best Man dress?” Just say “Oh great news I found a very good tailor who is able to take in perfeclty, so don’t worry!” and leave it at that. 

    Another thing is no matter how hard you try and how great it’s going, you just can’t guess what weight you’ll be at in 10 months. Even if you tried NOT to lose/gain you could lose or gain. Weight loss does tend to hit pesky plateaus, so assuming anything is a hazard, just TRY YOUR BEST and deal with what comes. 

    Congrats on all the good stuff!

    This is the first poll I have ever seen where 100% of voters agreed. 

    Good luck with the health plan OP!
