I am sorry that the seamstress made you feel so badly. It's really unfortunate when people don't think of clients as actual other human beings!!! Know that you look awesome! Continue what you have been doing with your diet and exercise for the next two weeks and go to that appointment knowing that the seamstress knows what she is doing with the dress (but not how to handle talking to people!). If she takes the dress out a little it's ok! There's nothing wrong with that - you want the dress to fit amazingly well and to feel comfortable, sexy, and AMAZING! Remember, no one needs to know what size the dress is or how much it needed to be taken in or out, they are all going to think you look phenomenal!
When you go for your appointment, ensure the seamstress has you sit in the dress. My seamstress said many forget to have brides do that and the dresses are so tight around the hips that brides can't sit or kneel for their wedding ceremonies and receptions! Though I wanted my dress to be super tight around the hips to show off my figure (oh yeah!), I also want to make sure I am able to sit in the dress!!!
Where are you having your dress altered?
I did it! I ran the New York City Marathon (26.2 miles or 42.2kms) on Sunday! I finished in 4:22 hrs. My legs are KILLING me now, but each day since the race has been getting a bit better. I ate like a pig on Monday after the race, and now need to get my diet back on track, now that I'm not training for the marathon any more!
My legs need a rest this week, but I think next week we're going to dive back in to Insanity - and we'll be four weeks out from our departure to Mexico!
CONGRATULATIONS!!!!! Running a marathon must be such an accomplishment! You must feel like a million bucks! (maybe not literally, but emotionally?) Super excited for you that it's only 4 weeks away until you leave.
This saturday will mark the one week until we leave! Today is two weeks until the wedding. Ahhhh!!! Panicking here a bit! Lately I have been feeling super fat. I tried on all of my bathing suits and feel horrible in them. . This is probably just me being super hard on myself. I know once I get down to Mexico I will feel great about my body, but man it sucks not feeling hot right before you leave!!!
