Joanna's not going to be a fat Bridesmaid

Postby grugwashere » Thu Feb 07, 2008 2:36 pm

Thats right, you heard me! I am not going to be a fat bridesmaid! My Oldest sister is getting married in November, before now my weightloss had no goal or target to aim for, I just wanted to be thinner in general. But nooowwwww I NEED to lose weight so I feel confident in that dress, especially seeing as one of the other bridesmaids is very skinny lol...I was in her wedding last year and I look at the photos in disgust, admittedly I was about 13 kilos heavier then, I still dont feel anywhere near skinny enough. I also want to lose weight so that i can wear a bikini this summer and show off all my new tattoos :)

Any support will be welcomed with open (flabby) arms

haha

Being a bridesmaid is a great motivation for losing weight. Good luck, Joanna! I'm sure you can do it!

Thanks ladies :)

Blicks- I am following the eat healthier and move my butt plan lol.. I find that if i try and stick to one plan or cut things out completely thats when i fail. I would be happy with another 10 Kilos by then, but the more the merrier lol. My sister (one of the bridesmaids also, not the bride) is trying to lose weight too so it will be good to motivate each other!

We went dress shopping on the weekend and my sister found her dress!! She is super happy, its a very pretty dress.

I was trying on dresses and I had a little yay me moment:

Th wedding i was in in May 07 i wore a size 18 dress, the dress i had on the other day when we were trying on dresses I had on a size 12.

zooommmgggggg how good is that...

must just be formal wear tho, because i am definately not a size 12... i have my new goal jeans that are a size 14, much to tight at the moment they cut me in half, but i cant wait to wear them haha

I was talking to a workmate about this this morning.

All sizing is a bum. My work pants from big W are a size 14 they fit me at 92 and are swimming on the now. My other workpants which fit me fine, are a 16. I also have a dress that is a size 22.

Its riddiculous and I am sure other people will agree with me you can no longer rely on clothes sizes.

But In saying that woot woot on a size 12 lol!! You should give yourself more credit =D :D :D :D

sizing is a bit stupid, But it sure is nice to see 12 on the tag haha...I want to be wearing a size 10 dress for the wedding, and 8 would be even better but i dont think that will happen haha

must work off butt, must work off butt!

What a motivator fitting into a size 12 dress.

It's about 6kgs between clothing sizes so its definitely doable to fit into a size 10 bridesmaid dress.
Start weight - 77kgs
Goal weight - 53kgs
Current Weight - 50.1kgs


No more weighing, no more scales. My measurement is my success at health. It's an investment I make every single day. My priority: be healthy!
