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...

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!

I'm glad you decided on that dress. It is so beautiful and so are you.

You'll be thanking God or your mother for those child bearing hips if you decide to have kids. ;)

You look stunning, really! And that's without even being all "done-up" with the hair and stuff. Wow :)

Just seeing those pics ought to eclipse the *scale number* in your mind a little. It's good to watch it, but don't fret!! You look great!

Bravo you look absolutely radiant! And don't worry about the number on the scale, honestly... if you didn't screw up anywhere, give yourself a break, I can go up two pounds one day to the next regardless of the time of the month. It just happens. The scale is a tool, remember, not a slave driver!
