    Hi guys

    After a break away from the packs (again) I am back with a mission.

    I am getting married in Antigua in June and i have just ordered my dress.

    I have measured up as a size 22. I tried on a 16! I have ordered the dress in a 20 and this can be adjusted down to 16.

    When I went to the shop, the woman said 'you are a long way from this dress, I don't think you will get there'. Being one for dramatics, I thought 'yeah - I'll show you'.

    She has given me the measurements and as soon I am close I am going to try it on again. I'm determined to look good in this dress with it done up!!

    I am on day 3. (which is great, cos other past attempts at restarting have not got past day 2) and my resolve is concrete at the moment.

    I am currently on old LL packs and exante. My MIL has told me that if I can lose a stone before Xmas, then she will pay for me to go back for 8 weeks after Xmas as part of my wedding pressie.

    As my target is to lose inches, I'm going to change my signature to target the inches I need to lose to get into my dress.

    Here goes!

    I think even if I don't look a gazillion stone, the dress will look nice. Its a really flattering one. It's the rest of the time on the beach in my swimming costume I'm worried about lol

    Lovely dress Mel,
    I was a size 22 when I got married- I would have preferred to be a 16.
    I think that woman set you has set you a challenge and given you the motivation.
    Lovely dress. You KNOW you can do it xx

    Hi ladies.

    Just checking in. Been really busy!! I'm abstenant and plan to stay that way until April. I just hope it won't ruin the dress to have it taken in that much!

    That's fab Mel!
    It's always easier to take a dress in than it is to have it taken out, so I wouldn't worry i'm sure it'll be fine! :)
    How are the rest of your wedding plans going? (I'm studying events management at Uni and hoping to become a wedding planner when I graduate, so have a slight obsession with weddings!)
