Wedding dress update

So!!!! Update just to bore you all

I reached my bmi weight for my fitting and my dress looked amazing ❤️

Needs taking in 3 1/4 sizes tho :O I've been told I'm not allowed to lose anymore weight so that's it this is my weight until I'm married and I love it! :D

Thank you everyone for your support- I'll still hang around because my next task is maintaining so I'll see how I do!! :D

Oh no Wood, you could never bore us with a success story! I just couldn't be happier for you :)

I hope you'll be posting some pics for us too :) When's the happy day?

All the best with maintaining, I believe that's the hardest part and like Flossie, I've never managed it yet! You're very wise to stick around, because I think that's the key to success.

Enjoy your new, healthy, slim body :)

Awh thanks for all your lovely comments :) I'll post a picture on the day/ day after all top secret till then- it's in June so you lovely lot will have to wait a bit! Sorry!!

I did ask the ladies at the shop to not take it in based on today so I can see if I can maintain- I did change my goal in mfp and it gave me like an extra 800 calories :O I'd balloon if I ate that

So I've decided on 1400-1500 from 1250-1300 I hope this will mean I maintain I might need to up it again but if I do one big jump I think I'll explode!!!

You are all amazing! I will Defo be hanging around for advice and coming back post wedding to get to my goal weight! Which is another stone off- I think the bridal shop would cry if I did that now! Haha :). X

The great thing about having this maintaining period is that when you start to "diet" again, it should be easier :)

A June bride, how lovely! Can't wait to see the pics :)

Well done , you must feel absolutely fantastic!

There are some useful threads on this site re Maintenance, and its a good idea to increase your calories slowly.

I reached goal last april and have been maintaining ever since. My average is around 1500 cals per day. But this is " real life" so I eat and drink the things I like, up to 2000 cals on some days, then cut back on other days. I too am size 12. My BMI stays at 23 - 23.5 . Maintenance is not an exact weight, it is a "weight range" that fluctuates week to week. In my case, 0- 3 lbs either way. That's normal. Good luck and we look forward to seeing the pics.😊
