    I will NOT be a fat bride.


    So, the exciting news is that my boyfriend, Gav of 2 years has proposed to me!
    And I, of course, said yes!

    So after all the excitement calmed down, reality set in.
    I need to buy a wedding dress.

    Suddenly, I was filled with dread and worry at going into a bridal shop and either not finding anything to try on, or looking massive and stupid.

    Terrifying as it all is, I think this is the motivation I need.

    Last year I lost 4 1/2 stone and due to laziness have since put 3 of that back on. I feel fat, disgusting and like I don't want to go out.
    I tried to buy a new summer dress and I just looked pregnant. I'm NOT having that.
    I'm a very sociable girl and for me not to want to go out because I don't think I look good in anything is proof I need to do something.

    MY future mother in law joined Slimming World on my recommendation last year and has lost nearly 6 stone!
    I'm so proud of her and she looks fantastic but I can't help but in the back of my mind, be jealous because if i had stuck to it, I would be at target now.
    She often thanks me for motivating her to go and join up, but I can't do it for myself!!

    I haven't weighed myself in weeks but I''m going to do it tonight when I get home from work and if i'm honest, i'm dreading it.
    I know just how much rubbish I have eaten and drunk and it's no ones fault but mine.
    I'm estimating that I will need to lose 5 stone or more. But i will update this tomorrow.

    I really hope I have your continued support from everyone at Minimins and it will be a happy ever after for me.

    Ohhhh congrats on the proposal and the getting married. You ever thought of going with her? or is it not good for work. Aim for 1-2lbs a week and with slimming world that is compleatly possibly, some weeks may be less some more the body is a weird thing.

    I think the best thing to do is go and try on dresses NOW. Yes, now!!! have you set a date?

    the longer you leave it - the harder it is to focus. I have ordered my dress now and its a US 12. It is too small and i need to slim into it. Talk about motivation to keep to plan.

    I need to lose about 2 inches from my back to be comfortable in my dress, and i only have 6 months left to do it.

    Argh!!!!

    Ellebear is spot on!! I did not slim for my wedding - but I bought a dress in a specific size months before hand, and then had to make damn sure I could still get into it on the day. This made me far more conscious of what I was putting in my mouth and was a real motivator to at least maintain my weight instead of piling on like I had for years.
    Just be realistic about the size you buy so you don't put TOO much pressure on yourself and also be aware that something which suits your body shape now, might look very different when you are 5 stone slimmer!! Congrats!!

    good point - i have 2 inches to lose, so not too much of a stress.....if it was say 10 inches i think i would be resorting to more drastic measures than my 'one pound a week' motto.

    Thanks everyone.

    The wedding has been booked for Saturday 24th November 2012.
    But because it's so far away, that's what is making the lazy part in me go;
    "Ah, don't worry! You've got AGES!"
    We're all stories in the end. Just make it a good one.

    You've got nearly 18 months, which is a fair amount of time. 1lb a week for 70 weeks (which is mid august next year) = 5 stone!!
    Realistically you need to have ordered your dress at least 4 months before then (ideally 6) to make sure it turns up in time etc, and if you need it taken up or anything you have time. So why don't you do whatever plan you feel with work for 6 months to see how you go, and then you can start looking for dresses. By that time you could be a couple of stone lighter so will have a better idea of what your weight is likely to be in November.

    The other thing is to ask advice in the bridal shops. Some dresses can be altered if necessary, others can't, so take this into account.

    and also - you won't be made to feel unwelcome in the bridal shops. They have loads in larger sizes and often say that alot of dresses suit you better if you have curves.
