@FloretteLiz: Yes I am hoping most of it is water weight as well, since I have been eating like crap. Thank you!
@d mari3: Thank you! I am sorry you are in the same boat, so good luck to you as well! As for the support system, luckily my Maid/Matron of Honor was with me and we are actually in the same boat (I just had to return her dress to DB for a size bigger) and we are going to motivate each other!
@Aug2011Bride: My computer is being dumb and won’t let me post pictures right now, but you can Google “Mikaella 1555” or I posted a thread in here a while back titled “Would I be crazy if I…” and toward the bottom I have pictures that I posted. Although, the seamstress told me there was no seam to let out, so I don’t know.
@mob3: wow 13 lbs in 3 weeks is fantastic, great job! I am going to look into WW, I have never done it but I have friends who have had great success on it. Thank you!
@mlharrison23: I am hoping that half of it is bloat! I have been eating crappy foods lately and not drinkning much water, plus (TMI alert) it is that time of the month for me so I am hoping maybe after a week or so of clean eating and exercise I will be down about 5 lbs or so and then have 4 weeks to lose 10 lbs.
@kaylee26: Lol I know I was just flabbergasted at the entire situation.
@berkie: The seamstress said she would be able to let it out a little bit (1/2 inch maybe) in the bust area, but that is not the problem. The problem is my butt/hips and there is no seam in that area that she could let out. And, I do not hate corset backs so if she had to put one in it would not be the end of the world. I am actually glad that there is a plan b just in case. But I still want to do everything I can to make sure I am wearing my dream dress on my wedding day!
@dressagetiger: thank you I am definitely going to look into WW!
So I went to the store tonight and purchased some hand weights and a stability ball, plus a whole bunch of healthy foods for meals for the next two weeks. I am going to try and hit the gym 3x per week, but if I can’t I am going to at least do some small exercises at home and go for a walk. Thanks for all your support ladies! I am trying to be as calm as I can about the situtaion now that the shock has worn off lol.
