Bridesmaids Dresses & Fun With Spark Friends...
Saturday, July 16, 2016
Let's start with the fun one and then we can end with the not so fun. So the fun, I love watching Dawn's (DAWNSUCCESS) vlogs. I used to tease her that if she made a 20 minute vlog I could easily watch it, and I have. She is just so up beat and I love the way she just chats with all of us. It is always a treat when I see there is a new video to watch. I took note of the length, 21 minutes. I knew without a doubt in my mind, I would be watching this video. Normally I'm just watching and enjoying it while sitting on my couch. I thought hmmmm, what would Dawn prefer you were doing? Maybe riding on your recumbent bike? Yes I thought this might please Dawn.
So pedal I did as I watched her chat about all the exciting things in her life. Here's Dawn in all her glory:
Then I got silly taking a selfie....
And then I thought what could be the funniest selfie ever? This one!!
Yes I am pretty proud of myself for that one! But I do have to say thanks Dawn because I completed almost 24 minutes that I wouldn't have done otherwise if it weren't for the video:
Now on to the not so good stuff... my Bridesmaid dress barely fits. Now let's walk through this... I have no boobs, seriously, and for a fat girl I REALLY have no boobs. When I bought the dress it fit, snuggly but fit. But of course that was in March and I was sure I'd lose some weight. WRONG. The thing is I wanted to go up a size, but even with a padded bra I am just barely pulling this off, and the larger size was going to add an additional 3 inches to the bust area. I really didn't want to fuss with having it taken in. Zoom forward to July and I wish I had done that and just taken in the bust. I can get into it, with Spanx on but if I had to sit down I would die. I told my friend and I told her half jokingly what my mom said... You might need to bring clothes to change into. My friend so cool as a cucumber and said she really doesn't care if I want to change after the ceremony and photos are all done. It is so embarrassing, but it's like I can stand and walk but that's about it. The wedding isn't for 70 more days, and I do have time to at least lose some. The most annoying part is it is my bottom stomach roll that is the issue. That thing is out of control and that is where it is so darn snug. What scares me is that while I can lose weight, I can't control where it comes from. I need it to come off my stomach for this particular issue but that isn't how this works.
I will say after talking to her about it, I am a little relieved. I'm going to find some dressy black pants and a nice top to bring just in case. To be honest, even if the dress fit well I'm really not that comfortable in dresses as a whole, so that might be the better route regardless so we can have fun without me worrying about what I look like in that dress (spoiler alert, I look like a sausage)! The good part is of course this is not my day, no one will be paying attention to me, and I am just there to see her get married and I am excited for that! But hopefully I can lose some weight so that it's less painful, literally LOL! ;)
