Love your Thread, Happy Birthday for the other day, Good on you for feeling so happy in your own skin, Love your dress and cake too.
Wow, the beginning of term has been more manic than I first imagined. I've had classes of 28 students squeezed into classrooms set up for 24, constant changes to registers as students move to and from various groups, plus I've just had 22 new students dumped on me with no warning (I just noticed a new register on my timetable) and their previous teacher has not marked any of their work so far, so more for me to do
This means that the wedding planning has taken a slight back seat lately but I managed to get a bit more sorted before work kicked off.
I have paid deposits for my hair, makeup and flowers. We have also paid off the venue, which is the lodge in Scotland.
Last week I phoned up a lady regarding alterations. She was recommended to me by the shop I bought my dress from. After a couple of questions, she told me to phone at the beginning of February to get an exact date to go in. This is great as it means I can indulge over Christmas and still have time to get back to goal weight.
Speaking of which, I weighed in this morning 0.6lbs away from goal weight So, hoping this week I can shift the final bit of weight and then it's time to maintain and maybe build a little bit more muscle to 'tone'.
We have started to look at bridesmaid dresses for my daughter. We visited the shop I bought my dress from and tried some different styles. She found 2 that she really liked, and after sharing pics with my mum and sister, we all like the same 2. Going to try a few more shops, including high street, to check as many styles as possible. Also going to look online to see what we can find.
Congratulations on your promotion! I've just read your whole thread and your wedding sounds so so lovely what did you do for your hen?
