Hi bees… Officially bought my dress!! Yay I am so excited!! I found it a little over a week ago and was pretty sure it was the one, but wanted to keep my other appointments I already had scheduled. Anyway, I ordered it… a size down than what they recommended! The size I tried on in store is what I ordered, but that was too small for me by maybe 2 inches. I will be adding a corset after the gown arrives to store too. Now, before you all freak out, I have confidence that this will all be OK. Starting about 5 weeks ago I really started kicking fitness and dieting into high gear. I’ve been sucessful in losing about 8 lbs, and it’s definitely already showing. I figure that if I keep this up, by the time the dress comes in, I will be OK! I think in the next 5 months I can get a few inches off the trouble spots. Anyone else do this? Success/failure stories to share? Any great tips on dropping inches?

Good luck! I have faith you can do it! I was recently in a wedding and the bride was so nervous all day getting ready that she wouldn’t fit into her dress… don’t let that be you! One of my friends puts a picture up by her alarm clock so that when she leans over to hit snooze she is reminded why she is trying to get out of bed that early in the first place. Try to have someone to hold you accountable. 🙂 🙂

Me! I got on Weight Watchers on Tuesday because I need to drop weight AND inches. So far I’ve lost 4 lbs (sure that’s water weight but ever bit helps!).
For losing inches I can’t recommend anything more than Pilates. It works WONDERS. Since I moved away from DC I lost my favorite Pilates studio BUT she has one online class you can sign up for through Pilates Anytime (her name is Mariska Breland if you choose to go that route.) Seriously, full. body. workout. Otherwise, maybe find a well-reviewed studio in your area?
