A little thing I like to call "Operation Wedding Dress" (aka, my dress is too small... but it won't be soon!)

    Alright, weigh-in day..... not such a good day... :( FI was gone on business for 4 days, so somehow that meant me vegging and eating crap for 4 days... so I am up 2 pounds. UGH. Hate hate!

     

    But no more! Weather is gorgeous here now, so back to walking after dinner, eating more veggies/fruit and less chips/cheezies/ ice cream.

     

    Welcome all! So we have on our team:

     

    Niki (CAKnight), Heather (Hezmshaw), Danielle (Danielle03), Jessica (Jessica Correra) and Jenny (Jenny2014)! I see we also have: Kel123073 and Ironman??

     

    Did I miss anyone?????

        Hey! I'm Kim, a December 2013 bride and a new import to Edmonton, AB (moved here in October). 

         

        I'm a lifetime member with Weight Watchers, so I only need to go in for my weigh-in at one point during the month of May (and I have to pay if I am over my goal weight). Just over 7 months until the wedding though and I'm feeling super motivated to get to where I want to be!

         

        I'm quite athletic and do a lot of running, but I'm a bit of a stress eater/drinker. There's been a few wedding-related things lately that just have caused me to have some mini-meltdowns (including this afternoon as we were driving back from Calgary - I'm having a glass of wine as I write this!) I will however limit myself to one glass and start counting every single point I eat or drink again tomorrow!

          Hi Kim! Wow so many Edmonton peeps, well 3.. But that seems kind of random lol. But yay us! Welcome :) So girls, a lesson in indulgence... I was doing so good, 6 lbs over 2 weeks. Then came cinco de mayo, which we celebrated on Saturday, but we didn't eat everything or even close to it.. So I carried on eating yesterday, aww heck, it's beautiful out and I deserve it right?? While I'm st it, lets go get an ice cream! So foolish.... I'm up 2 lbs today. Well, here's the food thing, it's not the whole 6 I lost, I'm still under 160 which I am sooo happy about and lesson learned, while the odd treat is fine... A WHOLE WEEKEND of treats WILL DERAIL THE DIET! Lol

          I realize now it was a pretty ballsy move, but I am determined to make it fit.  I WILL fit into that dress!

           

          Since I don't know you all, I feel like I can tell you they wanted me to buy an 18.

           

          EIGHTEEN!?!?!  No way Jose!  I ordered a 14 which is STILL bigger than any other clothing item I've ever bought, but I guess wedding dresses are just like that.

           

          Turns out it would fit in the bust and the hips, I'm just a little too round in the middle.  From what I've read, good news that's the easiest stuff to lose!

           

          I want to lose even more, so I can feel great in beach wear, but one step at a time.

           

          So far, I'm eating way healthier, getting exercise a few days a week at least and trying very hard to stop drinking calories. 

           

          I'm open to any tips or suggestions or stories of success (or failure for a dose of reality!).  If you're on the same mission, I welcome you to keep in touch with me - I have great support with my friends and I'll be happy to support you too, we can do this together!

          I joined the app myfitnesspal and it helped me lose 16lbs and drop from a size 13 to a size 4 so I'd suggest using an app to keep you accountable for your food and exercise :)

At my heaviest i was 168, it was a looooong hard struggle to get where I am today and the last 10lbs SUCK! They just don't want to leave

              Hello! I just found this thread and read through most of it lol!  I would love to join in on the Operation Wedding dress! I actually purchased my dress last week. I bought a sample gown because it fit pretty well. Its just a touch too tight through the hips and a little through the back. My goal is to make sure the dress fits perfectly... I guess I don't really want to lose too much so it won't be too big and need a ton of alterations, but I'd also like to look good in my bathing suit since we're getting married in Cuba! I have 364 days left til I get married so I have some time, but I am looking to lose about 20-30 lbs! This past weekend I started working out more often... I am going to try and do at least 30 minutes of exercise every day. I especially want to work on my upper back and arms so they look sexy with my strapless dress!
