In more positive news, I got my wedding dress!!! I went on Tuesday with my matron of honor and the sample was in, and I barely was in it and I already knew that it was the one. No decisions needed and I didnt even try the other dress on. While the sample dress was tight (as you will see from the back picture), I was completly shocked to find that it was a size FOUR. And I was in it. holy crap. Especially since they say wedding dresses are smaller. I definitely did not order a size four (a 10 actually), but it was a little boost to my ego that I could get in one. They took my measurements and you will love this - an 8 on top, 6 in the waist, and a 12 in the hips! Yup thats me, I have wide childbearing hips that are the largest part of me. I was pretty pleased that my waist was a 6. But its no wonder I have such a hard time finding clothes when Im different sizes all over. I tried on a veil and it just looked wrong, so I definitely decided not to go with a veil. I am planning on doing a nice hair clip or something like that. Anyways, heres a few pics. Ignore the weird looks on my face, I was so exhausted and it was 830 at night and I hadnt eaten dinner or anything yet. Now I just have to wait 5 months for my dress to come in!

Not Sure (and some wedding dress pics!)
I am not sure how I feel about this less frequent weighin. On one hand, its nice because I have enough stress with work that I dont need to get stressed out about the scale. On the other hand, it means there are more surprises like todays surprise which is that I am up to 159.8. What the heck? I feel like if I had weighed myself 3X this week, perhaps I would have seen what was going on. But to think I was probably back down to 157 like I was last week and then to see this, I was a bit shocked. I certainly didnt eat anything out of the usual. I did only exercise 1 day this week due to my 12 hour a day work days lately (except for today where I finished up and got the hell out of there), but thats how its been the past 2 weeks and it wasnt doing that. TOM is nearing but it seems too early to be bloated because of that. Oh well, who knows. I dont know if I like surprises...
