 So I have friend's wedding coming up on May 27th.  I had a dress that I wanted to wear that is many dress sizes down from where I am.  I have accepted that that is not going to happen in time for the wedding.  I had another dress that I haven't worn in a while because it is also too small (but only two sizes smaller then I am).  I don't think that is going to happen in 19 days either.  I have two dresses in my current size that I have worn for every occasion for the past 5 years.  Everyone has seen me in them, a lot!!!  I don't want to wear them and I feel fumpy in them.  I decided today that if I am not a smaller size, I still want to feel good about myself.  So, I ordered a new dress for the wedding and for my son's first comunion the following week.  I will still continue to work on my weight loss plan so the dress will look even better!!!

 I got the dress in the mail...it is really very pretty.  I ordered it in the size I am in, a 22.  It was way too big.  I went to the store and tried in the next size down, 20, ...still too big.  I tried on an 18, fit like a GLOVE!!! I was sooo excited!!!  I am still going to work out and eat well to jsut make it look fabulous. 

The wedding was this past weekend.  I felt like a million bucks!

LOVE the dress!!  And sounds like a good realistic plan! You'll probably be able to fit into it just slightly better in a few weeks but I doubt you'll lose a size or two in such a short time.  

You'll have to show us some pictures of you in it.  :)
