One word- SPANXS! =) You have plenty of time…can you have it altered at all?
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?
@ Mimosa: you are right about the carbs. The problem with the WW points is that rather than focusing on the variety of foods I’m eating, I’m concentrating on points. Great observation! I’m going to work on that.
@msbuttons: I’m not good with estimating measurements, but I’d say about 3 inches in my upper midsection. With the proper undergarments, I’m sure it could be less. The thing is, I don’t want to spend money on a pricey undergarment that won’t fit me after I shed some pounds. Make sense?
@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.
well, i fail at any weight loss attempts, so all i can say is that i added your blog to my favourites, and i’ll be following and cheering you on!
You can totally do it! How about a picture of the dress?
I’m down a 3 lbs. already after only a week of counting my WW points. You can see a picture of the back of my dress to see where if doesn’t fit and follow my weight loss “journey” here: http://slimdownforthegown.blogspot.com/. Thanks for all the input so fat ladies!
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!!
@ Gilneas: Thanks! I’m rooting for you too! We can do it… we just have to stick to it. I know what you mean about doing it by July. Time is ticking!
@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…
@ cupcake: That’s exactly why I made a blog! I wanted input. I wanted people to tell me they feel my pain. I wanted to be able to vent about dieting issues to people who know what I am going through. I wanted the encouragement. Without that, I could fall off the bandwagon.
How do you know how many pound you need to lose to get into the dress? People keep asking me and I’m like… I need to lose a size or 2 (to be safe), but I don’t know how that translates to pounds, especially since I’m plus-sized. And the arms! Mine are gross. Besides fitting into the dress, my arms are a big concern (no pun intended). heh!
