Well don’t sweat the dress!  Lots of girls gain during this time.  My trainer has me on Smoothies in the am, a good lunch and then soup for dinner.  Amazing how that coupled with workouts is starting to shake things up.  Sorry about the job. I know it is hard when you have to ride out the last few days.

For me I’ve noticed I’m not sleeping as good as I normally do.  I know this is because of several things not wedding related.  I’m hoping things get back to normal soon!  People are actually commenting on me looking tired! YIKES!

Aww- Lex…  I *definitely* know the feeling (as you can tell from my iPod meltdown).  You’ve still got a month before your wedding, and can probably get back to where you were… but if there is enough fabric, letting the dress out might be the way to go.

And just imagine how that horse smelled! Eww!

Dont sweat too much…same thing happened to me (kinda.)  Im marrying the saturday after you (Sept 12).  when I got my dress in, it was perfect.  The cups were a bit large, so the seamstress said she’d sew some fakies in and take in the top sides/waist a bit.  Cut to 2 weekends ago when I went home and tried it on bc I couldnt resist….THANK THE LORD I DID.  It fits PERFECTLY.  I mean, the tiniest bit uncomforatble, cant take a huge deep breath, definitely tighter than its made to be.  And I panicked.  Ive been on a low cal diet the past week and a half, and go in this sat for my fitting (at this point, all it probably needs is a bustle…FML) but Im so nervous that Im going to end up needing it let out.  I had to laugh it off and realize that I bought it right after hardcore training for a fight (Im a boxer) so I was definitely smaller and more toned.  Oh well.  Like you said, whoopsie-daisies!!

Moral of the story – you arent alone.  I thought I was the only bride who wasnt frantically trying to drop a ton of weight for my wedding.  Go woman! =o)  And like vintage above – Im sleeping horibbly as well.

 Also, about the job – being stuck in a job where you are miserable is…well..miserable.  It takes a toll on your health, appearance, etc, so that stress very likely contributed to that.  Just thank your lucky stars that you are in the position to be able to leave there.

I was on a huge weight loss kick up until the point we got engaged and started planning the wedding. In a 7-month span I’ve only lost 3 pounds (that’s being generous) and I wanted to lose 10 more before the wedding! I guess i still have enough time, but it’s frustrating and I keep kicking myself to get back on track.

My dress is supposed to come in at some point this week and all of a sudden the stress is starting to get to me. My wonderful husband (we became legal a month ago) has been realllly good about helping keep my nerves down and helping me out anyway he can…but I’ve been having multiple weekly migraines and today I found myself in full blown tears because we were out of Ramen noodles. SERIOUSLY? I cried over Ramen noodles. Ugh. I can’t wait for the wedding planning to be done and I can go back to sitting around reading and watching really bad tv without a care in the world.

OK, I have to take a minute to get over teh whole blowing up a horse thing. Wow! Really? I had no idea! LOL I don’t know what I thought happened to them, but WOW. 

Now, I think you’re just a bundle of nerves and stress thanks to the wedding. I would take a few days off from wedding stuff this weekend and do something fun with your Fiance instead. Sorry about hating your job!

I know this makes me a horrible person probably, but the idea of blowing up a horse makes me laugh! It sounds like something out of a Bugs Bunny cartoon or something.

So what are you going to do after you leave this job? No more blowing up animals I hope! 🙂

@Lexatron: I’m sorry, but I couldn’t help but laugh out loud when I read you cried because you didn’t get to blow up an old, dead, smelly horse. And I laughed because I know exactly where you are coming from. My emotions are at an all-time high – the craziest things set me off. You will be fine. Your dress will be stunning. And it’s probably a good thing you didn’t have to witness the blowing up of Mr. Ed. Haha.
