I am also engaged. Have been for quite some time now. (financial issues) I have a dress, but in order to get married in it anytime in the near future, I first have to fit BACK into it. I was a dancer when I was younger, so weight wasn't an issue until my son was born. Now I'm almost 40 & started this program at 208 lbs. I have lost near 10 lbs in the last month! It feels wonderful! I know you can do it too. Just break your goal up in smaller pieces & it doesn't feel so overwhelming. We both deserve to be happy healthy brides!
