Six Months

Thursday, August 25, 2016

Apparently, I have about six months to get into wedding dress shape (and then maintain that shape for two more months). Damn.

If it wasn't hard enough to get it done before, let's add all the stress of planning a wedding with a bunch of crazy people. The closer I get to my wedding date the more and more I can understand ladies and gentlemen turning into bride(or groom)zillas. Like for reals. I don't want to go into a long winded rant and make you guys think that my family is nuts, because I love them, but let me just say this gets stressful at times.

Its going to be okay though, because once I'm done, I get to take a two week vacation to Ireland and get away from all of it. Oh yeah, and I'll be with my brand new husband, which will be pretty phenoms.

Just wanted to get that out, cause the clock is ticking and I'm starting to really feel some pressure to get a little bit of this weight off. My goal is to take my dress in a full size. It is a corset, though so even if I don't quite make it, or lose a little bit extra after the alterations, I'll still be pretty good. As long as The Girls stay contained for the 6 hours I'm wearing the gown, I'll be really happy.

    Six months is plenty of time, and you sound motivated! How much do you want to lose? Try having a great big smoothie in the mornings and nothing else. Here's a recipe that is packed with vitamins and will keep you full til lunch:

    frozen banana
    2 c mixed fruit
    1 c mylk
    1 scoop Vega One
    1 tsp cacao powder
    1 stalk celery
    1 inch English cucumber
    1 leaf kale

    Because of all the fruit, you won't taste the kale!

    Six months is a good amount of time. Just take it day by day and do your best. One foot in front of the other. Don't put too much pressure on yourself and try to enjoy the process :) Woohoo for honeymoons/vacations, that sounds so exciting!

    Congratulations! Have you joined a group for losing weight for the wedding? I did it last time I got married and it was the best support ever.
