Try not to look at the dress for the designer. Im bigger than you in bridal and while I “feel” plus sized, I also feel beautiful in my dress. 

In regards to Jenny Craig, I think most people fail on those because it’s low calorie. Have you ever tried high protein/low carb? 

what sort of dress do you think would make you feel beautiful?

@MrsTimmy:  Once that dress actually fits you properly, it will look great. Seriously that looks like a pronovias dress. It doesn’t look like the standard “plus size” matronly gown. I’ve tried on like 200 matronly dresses.

The dress is great on you. Try not to focus on the label.

whats wrong with the dress?? It looks great on you!!! plus you’ve got some wicked curves πŸ˜› I;ve had some serious struggles with my weight also. I’ve been a size 20 and a size 4. I wasn’t happy at either weight. Confidence is 99% of what makes us beautiful. It took me like, 15 years to figure that out and I still need to remind myself on occasion.

Here’s a confidence boosting tip- I LOVE my spanx πŸ˜› best purchase I ever made. Instant confidence booster. Holds everything where its supposed to be in jiggle-free wonderfulness. It eases my mind to know that if i’m not holding my tummy in, something else is!

Try not to focus on what you want to loose, rather on how well you’ve done so far! Take some “me-time” to celebrate how awesome you’ve done thus-far. And remember- your getting MARRIED!!!! Which to me, mean that their is someone really special that thinks you are a perfect 10 πŸ˜€

@eagle:  your totally right. it does look like a pronovias dress! I would never have looked at that dress and though “plus size”.

I tried on a San Patrick that was almost exactly the same as that dress.
