HAPPY DAYS

Postby Moomoo » Fri Mar 07, 2008 12:38 pm

Hey all,
Today is a good day and I wanted to tell everyone :D :lol:
I started my weightloss journey in January this year so that I could loose weight for my wedding in September. I really needed a push to get myself into gear and I always work a lot better when I have a goal.
When I ordered my wedding dress last year in November the dress I tried on was a size 22. After taking measurements the lady said that I should order a size 24 to make sure it fitted over my bust. I ended up ordering a size 20 (I had to sign a disclaimer to say that I don't hold the shop responsible if the dress didn't fit, because I was going against there advice) The day after I placed my order I called up to change my mind and wanted to make it a size 22 but the lady said it was too late. I've spent the last 4 months worrying that it wasn't going to fit!

Any how - My mum came over from the UK and I took her to my first dress "Try on" session in mid February. I put the dress on and it fitted absolutely perfectly like it was made for me. Which is fantastic! It give me a great shape and has motivated me more to loose more weight because I think it will look even more beautiful!

It is casual day at work today and I thought I would try to wear my "Nice" jeans which I haven't worn for about 6 months (due to them being so tight I couldn't do them up!) Today they slid on and did up with no problem. :P

I weighed in this morning and I had another loss (600g) my total loss to date is now 6.1kg I am over the moon at my loss and impressed with myself that I haven't given up, despite feeling low sometimes (Thanks to all those who helped pick me up that very bad day last month)

I feel so happy today I could burst! 8)

Thanks for listening!

Oh Moomoo...thats brilliant! I can hear your pride in the way you wrote that....and you should be proud!

You are going to be the most beautiful bride - I can't wait to see the pics :mrgreen:

The best thing is that the lady at the dress shop was implying that you couldn't do it....and you showed her, and yourself!

I'm so proud of you. You're a great example of what we can do if we're determined enough.

Congratulations hun - and keep up the good work!

When I said to the lady a the shop that I was going to loose weight for the wedding she just raised her eyebrows at me and said that people always said that to her but never actually did :evil:

I'll show her :D :D

Congrats mate your'e doing great.

I love that feeling when you're so happy you feel like you could burst....be great if you could bottle that and whip it out when you needed a dose.

Keep up the great work, you'll look stunning at your wedding and feel like a princess.

Tee hee... I agree :D :D !

How sad it this!.... I had to weigh myself again when I got home just to make sure the reading on the scales wasn't a one off! :oops: :oops:

Hey Congratulations - that's awesome news. I def think that you might need to have the dress taken in... if you've already dropped a dress size after 6kg and you'll lose more before the wedding! That will be an even better feeling.

Great work!
Cheers,
Kate
