You know, I kind of wonder if it’s a set-up with the bridal salons and the alterations people.  I mean, okay, sure, it’s LOADS easier to alter a dress down than size it up but doesn’t it seem like girls get pushed into crazy bigger sizes than they really need?  And I would not even trust their measurements of me at some places.  I dunno, that was a pet peeve of mine and I ended up going to a hole in the wall independent place run by a seamstress who measured me like five times to be sure and actually suggested I choose a smaller size (my dress is free at the hips).  Anywho the point is, I wouldn’t buy any of that ‘designer put the wrong label on it’ crap and measure yourself at home, just to be sure.  Also, IF your hips and waist gained inches while you’re working out, that’s all muscle!  So keep at it and the balance will shift and fat will melt away from other places.  

Sorry your work and family situations are being poopy, it sucks when people forget how to be adults and use their words, and just snark and bitch instead.  Make a few calm, pointed references to eloping and see if they change their tune? 😉

Stop what your doing, shut down the computer, tell whoever needs to know that you have come down with Austrailian Wallabee Virus and are going home for the day.  Call your Mom, go home, get a bottle of wine and a hot bath, soak, sip, repeat!

@krstino1012:  I’m sorry you’re feeling so down.  If it makes you feel any better, I’ve lost 10 lbs, too, but gained an inch around my stomach. 

Your dress will look gorgeous once it fits.  They may have messed up on the size, but they should be able to fix it so that it fits the same way it did when you fell in love with it.

I like @Nona99:‘s advice.  I’m holding onto that one!

@krstino1012:  I soooo feel for you! I do accounting too. We are also in year-end and it is SUPER, SUPER STRESSFUL!! We also have 2, yes 2, audits in February.

I hope everything works out for you and you can relax soon. On a bright note, at least your dress is too big and not too small. (wink)
