Day 77

I am running to go out of town so I will have to post later. I am SO SORE from yesterday's workout, FINALLY a good one!

Second fitting today!


Well, here we go...I was so busy today that the only things I ate till about 8:15pm were: BF: Cheerioes (145), hard-boiled egg (80) and "Lunch": vanilla cone from McDonald's (250)....so at about 8:15pm I had: a large bowl of pasta with my mom's veggie and beef sauce and parm cheese, 3 slices of cheese with 2 slices of white bread, about 10 wafer cookies and one more large slice of white bread with Nutella. I'm going to guess between 1500 and 1600 for the day, if not more.

Second ugh....

I had my fitting. The good news is that the lady fitted me perfectly last time and the tops half of the dress fits me like a glove. And even if I were to lose 10 more pounds (which obviously I won't and don't even want to), it would not have to be taken in because the dress is completely flat against my ribs...there is nothing I could lose in that area. Here's the bad news...I'm not that sure I like my dress anymore now that it is hemmed. When I first tried on the dress, it was super long and I was standing on one of those stands, so the dress was even hanging down below my feet. I looked so tall, long, lean and elegant. Now that it is hemmed, I feel so short in it and my waist doesn't seems as small. I put my hair down and the I put on the veil to complete the look...I felt like a complete snow beast. It was totally not what I wanted to look like on my wedding day. Like, no sex appeal, no great style, nothing. Ugh...I am thinking I am just having a bad day. The two ladies in the fitting room with me, my mom, and the seamstress, were both abnormally thin and tiny women. Maybe I just felt all big and boxy next to them. I am hoping I will completely change my mind by my next fitting, in exactly 2 weeks.

Third ugh....

I didn't do the Shred as planned today because of my hectic schedule.

On a more positive note, we finished our registries! One less thing to worry about.

  2. I'm sorry for deleting your post Connie...my fiance sometimes read my blog and I don't want any discription of material or style of my dress on here.

    To answer your question, I got mine during a store special and payed just over $1000...but everywhere else I have seen it (in Florida and online), it runs right around $1450, without tax.

    I know I vented about my dress in this post, but I really do love how romantic it is.

  3. No problem...I understand. Can you tell me the name of the store you got it from? I'm interested in calling and finding out if I can order it from them. Weird question, but would you be interested in selling it to me if you don't care to keep it? Let me know. You can email me at cyan20@hotmail.com instead. Let me know about the store name n dress. Thanks!
