ACK! I have to wear a formal dress in 79 days!

Thursday, November 15, 2012

FANCY! I get to go to a fancy dress party! I get to dress up in a gorgeous dress, put my hair up, and put on my sparkliest bling. This is exciting! But I am scared to death!

Basically, I have 11 weeks to feel more comfortable in my skin. I realize, with 40 pounds to lose to get to my goal, that I don't have enough time to lose it all. I'm optimistic, but I'm not crazy.

But I think I do have time to get to a point in my weight loss where I can wear a smaller size dress and feel fabulous in it. I just have to get my head around really trying to LOSE weight during the holidays. I had previously decided to just try not to GAIN weight this holiday season, but now that I have this new opportunity, I want to really make the most of it.

My motivation has actually been really good the last couple weeks, and I'm feeling stronger and healthier already. I'm going to focus on one day at a time, but keep my eyes on the big prize at the end - walking into that Dolphin Pavilion looking like a million bucks!

    Hey, you're going to look like a million bucks. Full stop. And, if you keep on the way you are going, you will definitely drop a dress size. Eleven weeks could be anything from 6 to 16 lbs, depending on how often you manage to do cardio exercises.

    I've bought a lovely velvet dress for my husbands formal business dinner dance, and need to tone my arms up. I've got 5 weeks. Every time I go to the loo I do arm exercises. And when I go to Zumba I'm going to wear wrist weights. Would those things help you, do you think?
