Woohoo! :cheer: I stepped on the scale this morning for my daily weigh in & saw 171.1! That means I have lost a total of 15 pounds so far & reached my very first mini goal!! Now I am on my way to my second mini goal, which is 25 pounds & will be the halfway mark of my long term goal of 50. This is a HUGE motivation for me because now I really feel like I can do it. I am sooo excited! I think I'll go try on my wedding dress & see how it looks. :lol: Maybe by the time my big day gets here I'll have to have it taken in! I just had to share....thanks for reading!

:D <~~~ This is me right now!

Thanks ladies! My wedding day is March 25, 2011. I don't have enough time left to get to my 50 pound goal, but I really want to make the 25 pound one before then. I bought my dress before I started losing & I purposely got if too small. When I tried it on the first time I could BARELY zip it! At first my weight was not coming on off....I gained 5lbs instead & 2 weeks after buying it I could only get the zipper 3 inches from the top. Hubby-to-be wanted me to exchange it, but I refused. I knew I would get the weight off if I had to. That dress has been the motivation I have been needing for a long time! I tried it on today & not only does it completely zip, I can also breath in it now! LOL I'm still motivated to lose mor though, even if it means last minute alterations. Even if I don't make it to the size I want to be by then, I will know I did my very best & I will feel much better about myself & the way I look when I walk down the isle. I have 37 days left to lose 10 more pounds if I want to hit the halfway mark of my journey before the wedding. I think I can do it!

I'm sure it will fit just fine! I'm glad to see I'm not the only one crazy enough to buy a wedding dress too small.....or maybe I should say confident enough! =) Everyone called me crazy for doing it though. So when is your big day?

Yaaayy It was good news and bad news :|

I was worried the dress would be too small, and it turned out to be too big!! So they are taking it in...but they told me not to lose anymore weight before the wedding :| ugh but I figure hopefully losing a few more before the wedding wont hurt...fingers crossed :o

I am getting married in April sure i will be hyperventilating into a paper bag all of march :)
