stopped by your blog one thing i noticed.. your carb intake.  Why don’t you bring that back a little and you’ll probably start losing!  I started 3 weeks ago and I’ve lost 7 lbs already, but I still have my cheat days if I want and I carb it up and it doesn’t effect my weight because my body is working fast to use it.  Good luck to you, you got a hell of a deal!

Weight Watchers has worked for a lot of Bees and it’s nice to have someone asking you every week how you’re doing. It keeps you accountable!  9 months is plenty of time so good luck!

Do you have any idea how many inches you need to lose in certain places to fit in to the dress?

@Brown – you still have time to lose the weight if you do it seriously (Count EVERYTHING that goes into your mouth) but also is your dress a corset back? If not does it have a complex back? Because you could convert it into a corset back and it could give you a couple inches around the torso… but not the hips!

If you are serious about working out daily, try the 30 Day Shred by Jillian Michaels (the trainer on The Biggest Loser).  A friend recommended it after using the DVD before her trip to Mexico.  She lost 15 pounds!

I bought it on Amazon for under $20 and it’s been doing miracles firming my body in just the last 2 weeks.   I already ate pretty healthy – lean proteins and lots of fruits and veggies but I stopped drinking soda and alcohol too and have lost about 4 pounds in the last two weeks.

Hi there,

My dress, purchased when I was actively losing weight in Dec 2008, is two sizes too small currently.  It breaks my heart.  I’m getting married 10/10/10, too, and I need to lose 40 pounds to be able to fit into the dress (and, like you, there’s no back up plan).  My goal is to reach it by July, because that’s when I need to have my fittings for the dress.  I’m going to subscribe to your blog so I can follow along.. I’m rooting for you!!

@Brown and @Gilneas — we need to be weight loss/workout buddies because I’m in the same boat!  I bought a dress from preownedweddingdresses.com that was my dream dress — but it was a few sizes too small.  I also need to lose about 40 lbs to get into it by October 16 — although I’d like to get more weight off and tone up. I’m determined to say “bye bye” to “bye bye arms” before my wedding day 🙂  I’m also doing WW as a way to monitor my food intake.  We’re not completely hosed, but we need to get our bums in gear for October weddings…
