A cow-orker just asked me if I was planning to lose weight for my wedding.
Um. No. Why?
Do you think I need to lose weight for my wedding?
You’re a bit on the hefty side. Why don’t YOU lose weight for my wedding?
I was actually very nervous when I was trying on wedding gowns. I thought there were going to be bulges and dimples and I would become one of those women who declared she would lose 20 pounds before her wedding day.
What a load of crap.
These are the happy times! You eat, you drink, you be merry. That’s makes a diet plan very hard.
Luckily, my dress is designed so that the dimples are hidden, the belly looks flat, and the hips are cleverly hidden. I look damn fine in my dress.
So I merely said, “No, I don’t plan to lose weight. My dress is a size 12 and I am perfectly happy with that.”
Now, I don’t plan to GAIN any weight either. Which is why I tell my co-workers to quit shoving chocolate at me.
The honeymoon, however, is a completely different story. It's gonna take one magical swimsuit to make me feel at ease on a beach.
Or a lot of cocktails.
Which I think can be arranged.
