Got a dress to fit in...

Tuesday, May 10, 2011

My sister is getting married in Aug and I just got my dress in...I thought it would help me motivate myself to order it in a size to small and it almost fits and well now im freaking out. Yes i know its only May and I have plenty of time but I really REALLY am getting nervous. I figured if I lost another 10-15 pounds I could safely fit into the dress at ease and maybe even have to get it altered smaller. This is the 3rd 5% challenge I've done and I start off really well but toward the center and end I get off track and dont keep up with my exercise and I'm really hoping this challenge I can stay focused especially since I have a goal dress to fit into. I started going to the gym with my roomies last week and i've always had a gym phobia. I felt very comfy and now im excited again to exercise! Glad I have supportive team mates and friends on here who keep pushing me. I will fit in my dress and ill post a picture here to prove it :) GO STARFISH!!

    That is a great motivator! I agree with others - leave it out somewhere so you see it often, and try it on once in awhile. If it fits or not - either way will be motivating - to get you rocking on your weight loss or to congratulate yourself on your success! Yay! Rock it, girl!!

Hang that dress somewhere you can't miss it. Use it as a reminder of your goals. You'll definitely rock that dress!

    You are going to rock that dress! So glad to hear that you are starting to enjoy exercising. I used to HATE to exercise, and I would only hit the gym with my friend. I was way too afraid to go on my own. But I kept at it, and now, my friend has slacked off and I am totally addicted. Stick with it. You can do it!

    I think it is exciting to buy new clothes with the motivation of fitting into them. I also like keeping old clothes to try and fit in them again. Good luck!

    I have something at the end to keep you motivated this time. Why the gym phobia? I love the gym. I don't care that I am no the skinniest person there..I tell myself that I am there for a reason. Kind of like going to church...I don't go there because I am "perfect"...far from it, but I go for a reason. You are going to rock this challenge, and that dress come August. Hugs!!!
