- Wedding: November 1999
Just want to pop on and say keep the momentum. You should be so proud of yourself!
And that’s what tailors are for!
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!
Lol I think the poll speaks for itself
This is the first poll I have ever seen where 100% of voters agreed.
Good luck with the health plan OP!
I think the 301 votes here speaks for themselves!!!
I haven’t read through the entire thread but WTF. It’s your body..
The topic ‘Bridesmaid here- bride DOESN'T want me to lose weight.. (Poll)’ is closed to new replies.
