    it was too big!!!
    I dropped my dress off 2 months ago to get altered. It was too big and I also wanted the zip up back to be changed into a corset back. So today was supposed to be my final fitting and pick it up with 10 days before we leave. I put it on and the lady started lacing it up and I could tell that is just didn't seem to be very tight and then she said I think you lost some weight. I actually only lost about 2lbs but apparently more inches. I thought I might have lost something but not enough to make my dress too big! And the seamstress thought it was going to be too tight because of all the material she had already taken out...I guess not:) So now I'm going back next Saturday to pick it up. Only bad thing is it's the day after my bachelorette party and an hour drive away...O'well it's worth it to know that my workouts are finally paying off! So of course I wanted to make sure I showed you all a picture.

      Thats great!! I picked up my dress on Friday and it was to big too. I didnt have time for alterations tho, so she sewed in an extra hook at the top to the zipper while it was on to tighten it up.

          I'm not 100% sure. I work out at least 5 times a week and have been doing so for years. I thought that maybe my birth control was not necessarily making me gain weight but was maybe interferring with me losing weight so I went off it for 3 months. I've also been trying to run a little more with my normal workouts. Other then that I didn't really change anything...I LOVE to eat so I certainly haven't really changed anything there and I am crazy about sweets and sugar and I haven't cut that out. I wish I could say for sure that it was the birth control pills but i don't know. I did start another brand about 3 weeks ago because I want to make sure I don't have my period while in Mexico but I'll probably stop them again when we get back not sure yet.

                Well, I already told you how beautiful you look in your dress. :-) Side note, years ago when I was on BC it caused me to gain weight, and when I went off it, I lost it, so it could be the BC.

                Just a few more days.. :-) I' am so excited
