Getting in Shape

in shape.. on accident?

So my job started doing the Biggest Loser in April of 2012.. well i signed up not thinking i'd actually stick to it... but it turns out I won, down now 55lbs. I am getting married in March 2013.... and already purchased my dress in fear that it would take forever to come in, well it didn't take too long, and now it doesn't fit, not even close. It's so large on me that even when it's pulled in, it's still loose! My seamstress told me she could cut the dress and put it back together, but it's a huge project, and if I lose more weight it might not hold it.. she suggested to get a new dress come November/ December... but is that too close to a March wedding? I don't want to be dress-less in the long run...

also the weight has been falling off due to weight watchers. it's really changed my life!

    How long did it take for your original dress to come in?  I think November is cutting it way too close for a March wedding unless you plan on getting somethig from David's Bridal or off the rack.  Most shops say 6-9 months.

  • Congratulations!  You are incredible and should be very proud of yourself!  As someone who struggles with weight loss, you really inspired me to keep working hard!
  • Thanks everyone !!! My first dress was from AA and it came in in 2 weeks. My mom is so prod of me she said she would buy my next dress which I will probably get from David's bridal... Hoping November will be enough time !!

  • Wow that's a huge accomplishment and you should be really proud--keep up the great work!  Definitely sounds like you'll need a new dress, but you need to determine how much more you really want to lose and whats realistic to determine when you really need to have a new dress in.

    Have you been on weight watchers the whole time or how did you go about losing 55 pounds in <4 months?
