Wink Me vs. Bridesmaid Dress!

I've been up and down on this weight loss journey (mostly up in weight, down in motivation)! So, about 6 months ago, my sister and I go to David's Bridal to pick dresses for her bridesmaids. (She's getting married Nov 15 ) She decided on a cute, short sleeveless one. I try on the dress and I can fit comfortably into a 16. I'm not happy with this size, but it is what it is. Well...... it was what it was because fast forward to last week when I go back to order my dress...... I try on the same size 16, and it is
TIGHT! My boobs are being squished and I can just get in enough air not to pop the zipper. I try on an 18 and it is slightly too big. The consultant tries to convince me to get the 18, but that was not happening, especially since I have no plans to get alterations.

So long story short, I ordered the 16...... Now that is some motivation that I have no choice but to act on! I'm the Maid of Honor and my sister will KILL me if I cannot fit into this dress! I am hoping that this motivation will continue after the wedding and take me to my goal. I'll keep y'all posted!

You can do it. I am also in a similar situation. Trying to fit in my old dress before New Year's. I only wore it once and it is gorgeous but I have put so much weight it does not fit me anymore. Keep up with the good work and keep us updated
