Been sticking to my eating plan and points and losing about 1lb per week. I definitely wish the pounds would come off faster but sustainable weight loss is more important. We had a lot of special occasions in February and there was only one or maybe 2 days where I feel like I overate (out of multiple birthdays, cake tastings, valentine’s, friend visits, arrival of my new niece). So that is good but next month I’m shooting for zero days where I feel overly full or like I ate a bigger portion than I should have! Some of my family are food pushers and will dish up big portions and make you feel bad if you don’t finish all the food, the in-laws to be are like this as well.

Hi Bees! How is everyone doing? I could really use some encouraging stoies. My dress just came in! And it doesn’t button the entire way. 🙁 I don’t know why… because we ordered the dress with my measurements at the time and I have lost 10 lbs since then. It should have been big… (And I haven’t been exersizing to gain any muscle.) Basically, I need to lose this last 10 lbs or it won’t fit. :/ I have about 50 days!

patchm :  That’s a bummer, sounds like they ordered the wrong size. But you might just be bloated or holding water weight. I’m sure you’ll be able to fit into it by the big day but just in case can they let it out?

I know that fear but mine was self-induced because apparently I’m a masochist. I bought my dress on sale at BHLDN and the only size they had left is at least a size too small. I have until the end of August to fit into it but right now it’s looking a little scary.

I have just under 10 weeks until the big day. I want to lose 7lbs or so but if I don’t then it’s not a big deal because even with alterations my dress still feel loose.  I think I’ll cut down on snacks and try to drink more water to help my skin.

NikkiBee18 :   becks90 :   DaniGirl03 :  Yeah, idk why it didn’t fit because mine was made to my exact measurements (and I lost weight sinnce sending the measurements). The only thing I can think is I tend to carry weight in my arms for some reason and that might be keeping if from sliding all the way back… The bodice is super structures with beading all over it, so idk if it can be altered. There is some netting over my shoulderblades what could be cut off all together, but it is so pretty, I don’t want to do that. :/ We will see…

Glad to hear you guys are doing so well! Keep up the good work, bees!
