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
