Not a good feeling

Saturday, February 25, 2012

Well today I had to go and get measured for my bridesmaid dress that I have to wear in my best friends wedding and after I left I had a complete meltdown.. I know it's just a number but my dress size was a 22. I felt embarrassed not that anyone but the girls who measured me saw but still they were all thin thin and here I'am a 22 ughh. I don't really understand it I wear a size 16 pants and some of my pants are a 14. I have lost 10 pounds so far and I know I need to be happy about that but seeing that number today totally just made me so sad, when I got in my car I couldn't stop crying. Thank god for my mom she was very supportive. I'm not going to let this keep me down. I will just work harder.. I hate that I have let myself get to this point. I really hope this time is the time I really do this..I really want this!!!

    Yes, it's true about the sizing! Why do they do that? I had to get my wedding dress 2 sizes larger than what I wear in normal clothes. Horrible! You think that they would be the opposite since it's such a memorable piece of clothing.

    Keep your chin up and don't let the clothing designers get to you! Way to go on your weight loss!

    Bridesmaids dresses are always off. When I was in my brother's wedding I weighed less than I do now and was wearing a size 16 as well. They ordered me a size 24 I think and I had to have last minute alterations done. So, don't feel too bad, I think they up the number to try to make people feel bad!

    Cheer up - fancy dresses are always sized differently than everyday clothes. I know it was hard to take, but I already hear you saying all the right, self supportive, things!
    And good for you! You know it is just a number - you aren't going to let it get you down, you will work harder because you want a healthier body all that much more for this experience.

    You are strong and smart and on the right track - keep up the great work, and take your 10 lb loss and make it 20!

    I wish you the very best of luck - before you know it you are going to have to get that dress altered...to fit your trimmer, healthier YOU!
