Yesterday was great. We went to David's Bridal to pick out Bridesmaid and flower girl dresses. I really had a blast. I definitely would not have had this much fun 20 pounds ago.
I was kind of afraid to try on dresses at first but as soon as I got started there was no stopping me. I seriously think I tried on 10-15 dresses. Unfortunately I forgot to put the memory card back in my camera so I don't have any pictures to show you. Sorry :(.
Some of the dresses were so beautiful. I wanted to buy a few just to have in my closet in case I ever need them (Yeah Right!). Although it would be nice. Who knows, maybe someday I will get to go on a cruise :).
My favorite dress was definitely the one that we chose for the wedding. I felt like Marilyn Monroe in it. It was so soft and flowy. I can't wait to wear it. Click here to see the dress. I would post the picture here but the site won't allow me. The color I will be wearing is watermelon. I was shocked but the dress actually looked good on me. Of course it will look much better when I lose a few more pounds but it did look really cute.
Guess what size I ordered? A size 12! No, I don't fit in the 12 yet but I was afraid to order anything bigger. I tried on the 16 but I figure another 10 pounds and I will be in the 14 and another 15-20 after that and I will be in the 12. It might sound like a crazy move to make but I am so sure that I am going to do this that I decided to order the smaller size. And guess what? I am ecstatic at the thought that I will be that small or even smaller by the time of the wedding. The wedding is in approximately 6 months.
Do you want to hear the funniest part of our shopping trip? When the saleswoman asked me what size I wear in front of everyone I was actually proud to say a size 16. It's so funny because in the past I would have been mortified for anyone to know that I wear that size. I think it is because I am so proud of myself for working so hard just to lose the last 20 pounds and get into that size 16 that I didn't even care what anyone thought. It was a great feeling.
I really had a great day shopping and trying on dresses. My favorite part was enjoying my "new" body. It is just really cool to see that all of my hard work is really making a difference.
