    Started lipotrim as a last resort as theres no other way my wedding dress is going to feel comfortable.

    I have a dress and a Tiara but no exact date as we only decided to get married 2 weeks ago. The dress is a little on the tight side, and if we get the date we want (find out on Tuesday) i'll have 10 weeks to get into it comfortably.

    Here's my dress

    I always wanted a red wedding dress:D

    I'll put my start weight and stats here as something to look back on and see how far i've come (hopefully)

    Start weight 02/05/07 - 13st 4lb
    Waist 39ins
    Chest 45ins
    Underbust 37ins
    Hips 45ins
    Upper arm 13ins
    Thigh 26ins
    Calf 15ins

    (Sorry for the excessive measurements, but I really want to see the results:D)

    Wow - what a stunning dress! Will you post a wedding photo after the big day? I keep meaning to upload a photo of my dress (no where near as amazing as yours - but lovely in it's own way :) )

    Good luck with the weight loss - love ff x

    If you load your picture up to a photo hosting account such as photobucket, then you can put the image link in your post. That's how I did it anyway:D

    Well, here goes, I uploaded the picture via photobucket :) I hasten to add that this is NOT a picture of me...it is just a picture from the web (she looks like she's got something very wrong with her neck!) anyway - it's made of lilac lace and I feel very elegant in it and I get to wear it in public in just 11 days :eek: :D. love ff x

    We have just had Dave's Dad and stepmum round. They live in Spain so we don't see them very often.

    They've told us that as a wedding present they'll pay for all of our passports (2 adults and 3 kids):D. I'm well chuffed. They've lived in Spain for over 3 years but we haven't been able to visit them as we couldn't afford both the passports and the airfare.

    We'll hopefully go in late September so it's not too hot for the kids and I "should" be just about at target then.

    Well, i'm 5 weeks into my diet and I thought I'd update my measurements.

    Waist 39ins - now 37ins
    Chest 45ins - now 42ins
    Underbust 37ins - now 32ins:eek:
    Hips 45ins - now 42ins
    Upper arm 13ins - now 12ins
    Thigh 26ins - now 22ins
    Calf 15ins - now 14ins

    so in total i've lost 2+3+5+3+(2x1)+(2x4)+(2x1)=25ins in total:eek:

    Not much left to sort out for the wedding either. The rings should be ready to collect in about a week. Need to get the Groom and Best Man suits and my make up and underwear but that's it. I can't believe there's so little to sort out. I never thought I would be able to organise a wedding in 12 weeks and we still have over 5 weeks to go. Still, there's time for it all to go pear shaped yet.
