Soon2ElopeBee:  What you wrote helped me! lol. Very well put.

My wedding is in 5 months, goal was to lose 20lbs this summer… I stopped weighing myself, I’m probably MAYBE 5lbs down. It gets depressing. Try to feel good the way you look now! You will find another dress that you LOVE and you will look beautiful!

I know how you feel. I made the mistake of going dress shopping after having the flu or something for days, and was apparently dehydrated and underweight. Then when my dress had come in, I had been to the ER three times in less than two weeks (they thought I might have meningitis, it turned out most likely not to be, but the spinal tap made me incredibly ill) and felt and looked horrible (I had so many needle marks I literally was scared people might think I was an IV drug user) so when they asked me if I wanted to try on the dress, I said no. Long story short, when my mom came to visit a few months later and we tried my dress on, it was clear that no amount of alterations was making that bad boy fit. Thankfully DB exchanged it for a dress two sizes larger. (The one I originally tried on felt REALLY tight but I didn’t know that wasn’t normal, so it was probably one size too small then, with me being sick, and then I gained several pounds once I got back to normal!) I am sorry your dress doesn’t fit. I am sure you will find something else you love and look beautiful on your wedding day. You still have time! Keep your chin up!
