I'm looking for all the support and motivation that I can get!!! Sorry if this gets long winded!!!! My fiance and I were planning on getting married in Aruba next spring. Well, long story short the process/expense/paperwork wore me out so we decided to get married in September in Vegas instead.
This is my 2nd marriage, so I ordered a very cute dress from Nordstrom in a size 10 (I'm in a 16/18 now). I thought that would be good motivation (considering the original wedding date is over 9 months away). Well since we're moving the wedding up, I've exchanged it for a 16. In the Nordstrom world, I'm sure this will be closer to a 14. I ordered it online so I haven't gotten it yet but I'm just terrified that I won't be able to fit into this by then!!! My biggest problem is that it is a halter type dress and I hate my fat arms!!!!
So now I've got 51 days to make some progress!
I was on WW and doing well, I promised myself a while back that I would avoid the get-skinny-quick ideas because of my lack of patience. But now I've got to get busy! I started Atkins yesterday but I'm still just so afraid of how this is going to turn out!!! Part of me says DO IT, buying the dress is the motivation I need, the other part of me wonders if I'm setting myself up to fail??
So many times before I plan to lose weight for something, fail, and then just end up "making do" with the weight, either avoiding the situation or buying a bigger size. I do NOT want to do that this time!!!
Any words of wisdom, inspiration, anything!!! HELP!!!
