The more I think about my prom

The more I think about my prom the more I want to push it back to when I'm at my goal weight. A prom is going to be a lot of money and I want to be the size I want to be for it so I can try and try the dress on more than once. If I have the prom before I am finished losing weight it will be too big to wear by the time I reach my goal unless I get one of those free at the weight. Xs-s-m-l sized dresses are not really what I was thinking about.

I was looking at Fashion blogs and Art blogs today thinking about how I used to sew a lot of things when I was losing weight before. Now that I have my own place I should be sewing more than just pillows. I can experiment with different things and if I like it than I could wear it. Like playing dress up. The only problem is I have to make sure weight loss is my priority.

Weight loss before everything else. I bet you if I were working out every single day I probably would be at way closer to my goal. Losing 4-8 pounds a month when I could lose 3 or 4 pounds a week at my BMI is kind of like I'm taking my time too slowly or I'm still being lazy about my goals.

I'm going to exercise tonight and tomorrow. Probably stop and pick up a pedometer too to see how many steps I take a day. This is not even just about the scales... The numbers of the weight are one thing, the way I view myself in the mirror about taking charge of my goals is another.

I understand the worry about the dress fitting after you're done with losing weight. I suppose the worst that could happen is that you could have it taken in, if it's not too expensive or if you can do it yourself, assuming you buy it before you're at goal.

I like the idea of making your own dress for it and treating it like a dress up game. That way you can try different styles, too, and see what you really like. And if you make more than one dress, then, well, you'll always have a nice backup dress for fancy occasions (depending on the style of the dress).

That is so true.... My sewing machine really has been begging me to use it.. It's so old and pretty. YOSH! I will and I'll post pictures too! First I should make a dress form?
