Tracking and Wedding Dresses

Thursday, February 18, 2010

After trying to get down to my goal weight without obsessively tracking everything I eat for awhile, it just has not been working out. Back to tracking it is! I always tried to keep count in my head and estimate but I'm still at 172, so something has to change. Today was my second day and so far, I've done well. Hopefully this will be just what I need to lose my last 20 or so pounds before the wedding in August. I recalculated my target weight on Spark and if I lose 1.5lbs per week, I should be at my goal by May 9th which would be awesome (and give me plenty of time to have my dress taken in).

Speaking of which, my dress has finally arrived! I am picking it up on Tuesday when my mom is in town. I'm excited to finally see it in person. I'm not sure if I ever blogged about my dress, but I wanted to wear something short. I am just not a ball gown or long dress person! Unfortunately, that really limited my choices and a lot of the tea length dresses I found were just not my style. Very early in my search I found one I loved online. I tried a bunch on at a nearby store and even tried on a bunch of bridesmaid dresses that came in white, but there wasn't anything close. Even though they didn't have a sample, they did carry the dress I had seen online, so I went ahead and ordered it without ever seeing it in person! I did try one on by the same designer that had a similar style on the top, but to be honest, I am still a little nervous. I can't wait to try it on though. Hopefully it will work out for the best!

EDIT: I just read my last entry and apparently I said the same thing about tracking. I guess it didn't stick very long...oops! This time I am really doing it though!

    oooh, it's gorgeous! i'm considering a shorter gown and definitely a bright color for my 2nd wedding (date TBD).

    tracking REALLY helps- not just with calories but with staying in healthy ranges on all of your vitamins and nutrients!

    I love the dress! Believe me - you'll be glad for a short dress in August. I did the ball gown thing in July and it was so uncomfortably hot! Beautiful, but very hot lol.
