Weight Watchers and Wedding Dresses - Why?

Tuesday, June 10, 2008....

Why would anyone in their right mind choose to start Weight Watchers and try on wedding gowns the same day? I'm blaming it on the heat and not that I'm insane.

Actually, I realized today that my wedding is 4 months and 1 day away and I really need to do some work on the apparel and my appearance. I've been avoiding the dress shopping aspect of this adventure as most dresses are strapless and I'm a plus size girl. I realize that I should have stayed on WW when I joined last year, but the adventures of my life got in the way (okay, I stopped going to meetings, measuring food and drinking the water). Now, I'm back as I hope to lose some weight in my arms before the blessed event and possibly not have such a pinhead (my sister would understand this reference --- actually anyone who has seen their shadow in front of them when walking could understand this reference) in the photos.

Since I now have the time to plan, prep and exercise (being unemployed), I figure 2 lbs/week for the next 17 weeks. That should be enough to take some weight off my arms and reduce the visualization of my pin head in photos.

Wedding gown shopping? Fun.

Weight Watchers meetings? Not so much.

good luck on this evil combination. I hope it goes easy for you.
