I should probably save this post for Wednesday, but it has been on my mind lately.
I picked up my wedding dress on Saturday. I was extremely nervous about this because we had ordered a size down from the sample size. I have gained about 5-6 lbs from where I was when I tried the sample dress on. And the sample was a bit big.
I watch enough wedding shows to know (or should have known) that sample dresses get stretched out since so many different people squeeze into them. So they are really a bit bigger than their number. I know this.
But I still ordered a size down. I thought it would be fine.
Hmph. Imagine my surprise when I put it on and it was tight. Like, almost didn’t zip tight. I didn’t even attempt to sit down in it. To say that I am a little defeated and disappointed in myself would be an understatement.
I was so incredibly excited that my dress was here, early and that I got to see it again. And that it was mine. So, when it didn’t fit like I remember it fit before, it just deflated my confidence. I know that I have time. I am very aware that I don’t need to lose a ton for it to be comfortable, but this is something I have thought about for a long time.
How about we start just losing 5lbs at a time instead of the big lofty goals of weight loss?
5lbs is do-able. 5lbs is possible. I can imagine losing 5lbs. I can picture it; taste it. I am motivated to lose 5lbs.
Are you going to join Operation 5 Pounds?
