Today was a really big day for me, it was my first dress fitting for the wedding. That's a really special day for a girl, to get to put everything on, from shoes to veil, and see what you will look like the first time your husband sees you on your wedding day. It was very emotional, but in an incredibly good way.
Not only was seeing the whole package put together amazing, but the fact that my dress was like a pillowcase on me was also amazing. I've lost about 40 pounds since I bought my dress, but I don't see much of a difference when I look in the mirror. I just see me. I guess I just don't think about the fact that I am wearing dress pants that are 2 sizes smaller than I was about a year ago... I just see myself the same way as I always have.
But tonight, seeing myself floating around in a dress that once fit me perfectly, it was unbelievable. For the first time I felt really proud of myself about eating healthy & changing my life. I could pull the dress out in the back probably 5 inches.
And the staff at David's Bridal were AMAZING. They allowed me to exchange my dress for a size smaller! I also was able to exchange my corset/bra thing, cuz I certainly don't fill that thing out anymore. The size smaller dress was actually a little bit big, but I probably couldn't have gone down another size. In late January, I'll get it taken in, rather than do it now & then possibly
have to pay for it to be done again later.
It was a wonderful night... if I'm this excited/emotional about my stinking dress fitting, I have no idea how I'll make it down the aisle on March 22nd w/o bawling my eyes out.
