Weddinggirl - you should try designating one night to making prepacked lunches or dinners... U can freeze them and control your portions that way? Fastfood kills your diet, unless they have a healthy choice menu, but read the fine-print on those too.

i really don't call it a plan cause it hasn't been working all that much mostly because of me. I do the walk a way the pounds dvd's and go to curves for exericse. i still need to figure out how to eat right. my biggest problem is i hate cooking and eat out way to much (fastfood) i know its not good and try to remind myself to stop and really think if its worth it but all i really think about it is its quick and fast

That would be great. I think there is nothing wrong with buying your dress early that is if you are planning on losing weight. It is not good when the dress is to small or you become pregnant unexpectantly. But I am sure it will turn out great. So what is your weight loss plan?

They say not to buy your dress more than 6-9 months in advance. It depends, though, if you want a "summery" looking dress, you should shop earlier, but with the magic of the internet, you can probably find something at any time.

Hi! I'm 23 and my future hubby is 27. We will be getting married on April 18th, 2009 and I'm so excited but so overwhelmed at the same time. I'm here to try and lose 15-20 pounds before the big day. I've been really good the last couple weeks but still haven't seen results. Maybe soon I will....

It was really hard for me to go out and try on dresses being as big as I am, however I was amazed how the wedding dresses were making me look thiner than I am....at least I felt that way....there isn't much I can do about my chubby face though....but I sure do feel beautiful in my dress...and I actually had alot of fun finding my dress....even though I know I have 55 pounds to loose....Good luck to you both and Just have fun with it....oh and FYI, some places go in with you when you try on your dress, so make sure you are wearing modist undergarmets.....my sister went in with a thong and was throughly embarrised...lol

TROPICBRIDE226...im glad im not the only one! It looks like you have a good amount of time until your wedding, so that is great...you should be able to meet your goals no problem! I guess we just need to go and try them on, and if we arent happy with what we see, then it will be even more motivation to lose the weight!

NKUSKYE, I am feeling the same way. I plan on losing 40 more lbs before the wedding and have been scared to even look! After reading DIGHUMOR24's post I think I will have to take a friend and just do it! I'm just scared to see my fat self in a beautiful dress! LOL

NKUSKYE- My advice is to SHOP SHOP SHOP!!! Have fun with it! This is gonna be your only time to even go shopping for a wedding dress, so just go try on everything, you can ALWAYS have it altered if you loose more weight! And you don't have to buy one right away...but take your BM and mom and have a girl day of shopping for dresses! Or just go with your best friend....if you find one GREAT, if not, well you still have time before the wedding to make a few more trips around town to get a dress! :)
Anyway, congrats and good luck!

Hi Everybody, I am 24 and getting married September 20th of this year. Have any of you found a dress, or started looking for one? I seem to have this mental block about it because I dont want to see myself in a dress until I lose more weight but I know time is ticking and I need to start shopping! Any advice? Oh and congrats to all of you :)
