I remember seeing your original dress post and you looked beautiful then, but wow, good for you for you! I admire your hard work and dedication, I know weight loss isn't easy.
Recently I purchased my wedding gown from a sample sale, and it's a couple of sizes too small and I too am bound and determined to lose the weight vs. having to let it out. I've got the working out part down pat and have been researching cleanses and I would love to know about the program you followed. Would you PM me the details pls? Thanks, and congrats again!

The wonderful woman who owned the Briadal Boutique said you have over 4 months, don't stress... and if worse comes to worse...it can be taken out.
Taken out?!?! Hell no!! There was no way I was having my gown taken out!!!
So as the new year arrived, I swung into action. Started a cleanse program that my hair stylist had amazing results with and exercised like a mad woman!!!
It paid off ladies. This week I went for my very first fitting, 18lbs lighter and 23.5 inches smaller. I was pretty confident the lining in my gown would no longer hug
my hips. I slipped into the gown, looked into the mirror and almost teared up....I did it!!!
I shared photos with you all back in Dec, and if you don't mind...would like to share with you all once again.
The first two are my Before: Dec photos and third is my After: March photo.
Forgot to snap a photo of the back of my dress this week, but the corset is now to the end and will be taken in so the ribbon can be shown.
Signed....a Very Happy Bride-to-Be
