I have to be completely honest-I don't want to be limited to choosing from not-so-dreamy chubby wedding dress selections because I am fat. I already know which style of dress I can see myself looking great in, the problem is that I don't think that they offer them in my size nor do I want to wait 8 months plus for it to be completely transformed for my body. I also don't want to feel self conscious and super horrible about my weight at my wedding- I want to wear the wedding dress that i love and feel completely beautiful!! I don't think that I should have to settle for a crappy dress, especially chubby bride dresses (which are mostly the same classic, ugly plus size wedding dresses), so I am going to take the initiative and work hard to lose weight, finally.

I am so excited about getting back into my healthy low sugar meal plan. I haven't been following it too closely because I have been so busy with going back to work, girlfriend time, etc, but I have decided to use my engagement period to J as a way to motivate myself to be a healthy, young woman and future wife that will lead me on a path to being a healthy future mother.

I have added a counter to my profile to keep me on track. I have a long way to go but I feel so motivated lately! I walked two miles this weekend even though I was hoping for more. It will definitely be a challenge since today I will get home some time after 8 and we will both be so hungry for dinner and so tempted to quickly get something satisfying to eat. I hope that we just stay focused!! And by the end of this, I hope to still have the curvy figure that my fiance loves!

I would love to be a 'buddy' with you! I am trying to lose weight too. I've had a personal trainer for several years but I really need to lose another 30lbs. She is starting a weight loss/lifestyle program called I'm not sure if its fully available yet but I had great success losing 35lbs over the program but over the past  2yrs I gained about 20 back (tons of family stress, etc...) and so I'm crediting her program to my determination to get back on track. I am actually in the videos :-) Anyway, if you'd like someone to be acountable to (i need someone) I'd love to buddy up with you. Let me know! If not, good luck on all you hard work!!

09/02/2008 offers all of their styles upto size 30 I think.  I am a heavy girl (size 22 wedding dress- size 16 regular clothes) and got mine from them.  Really reasonable prices..... got mine for $250 (brand new).  Granted, not a designer name sewn into the dress, but looks fabulous!!
