So over the weekend my mom started to pick at me about hoping my dress still fits. Saying I was looking heavy. She can sometimes fixate on things to cause some problems. Her obsession on weight and weight loss is not a new thing. I do not necessarily think I have gained weight but of course stepping on a scale is something I avoid as I can share similar obsessions.
So after that I went to the bridal salon yesterday and tried my dress on. It still fits! But honestly, I don't feel I see myself clearly in the mirror. The dress fit fully zippered and buttoned, its long sleeves and illusion until lower waist. It did feel a slightly tight in my back (which has always been a thing since I was a kid, so not surprised) and it i fitted at the side seams. I was told that area might not need to be altered and that when side seams are altered in a dress like that they are adjusted to be fitted like how it was currently sitting on me. I am concerned about that area growing tighter in the next few weeks! Appearing too tight by the time my first alteration appointment rolls around which is the 28th of this month.
It would be nice for there to be just a pinch of wiggle room in that area. Please don't misunderstand me when I say that, the side seams aren't about to bust when I breath or anything. I just don't want it to look like there is a roll there because it could be too tight.
I am just wondering if anyone has tips on last minute weight loss or inch loss? I am watching diet - not over eating, consuming lean meats and high protein meals, veggies, etc. I have now cut out alcohol and sweet treats...which is sometimes difficult as I like a little treat in the evening!...but I am doing it! I have read about psyllium husk which I plan to incorporate in my diet for fiber. Working on increasing my water intake. Also, I am exercising pretty much every day, either run/walking one day or swimming the next when. I will probably increase it so I include this type of activity during the weekend so maybe 6 days a week.
Just wondering if anyone has recommendation as to what could boost my efforts in now such a short time frame. I am also trying not to panic.
Thanks for your time and thoughts on this!
