Every Bride's Worst Fear...

Sunday, October 06, 2013 happened to me. I wish I could say my dress didn't fit because it was too big but nope it doesn't fit because it is too small. My mom is doing the alterations on my dress so I really slacked on getting back in my dress. I was already nervous to begin with because I knew I had gained 10 lbs since I tried it on. So when it was at the one month left mark until the wedding I decided I had better put on my dress so my mom could start the alterations. Well, the dress wouldn't zip...wouldn't even clasp at the top. I had the same spanx on that I wore when I tried on the dress and the dress itself has a sewn in corset. I wanted to cry. I am an emotional eater so of course I wanted to go eat everything I could but I didn't. I decided on that day that I would stop eating carbs and sweets and I would continue doing C25k. Little did I know that I would start TOM that week too... WORST WEEK EVER!!!! There were a couple times I had some sweets but only in moderation. I've only been having carbs in moderation too, usually at dinner time cause I love me some mashed potatoes. My goal is to get to 165 by this Friday since the wedding is this Saturday...I only have 2 more pounds to lose. I tried my dress on about a week ago and it could clasp and zip just a little. My mom said there was just enough material to take it out more so just to be on the safe side shes doing that. So, I'm hoping, praying, and crossing fingers that it will zip up on wedding day...such a stressful situation and I put myself there. The past 2 weeks I haven't been doing C25k either...ughhhhh. I plan to start back up on week 6 tomorrow! Other than that I am so excited to marry the man of my dreams. There's still a lot of little things left to do but I'm very ready and excited for the big day and honeymoon!! Can't wait to share pictures!!

    When I read "every bride's worst fear" I thought of being left at the altar! Good thing that's not what you wrote about. emoticon

    Enjoy your day!!

    Your marriage is far more important than a party or a dress. Take a deep breath. It'll all be OK.
