So, I'm small statured, 5'3, and should be between 50-60kg for my height. I bought a bargain dress (Maggie Sottero Kadence for $250) which I am just so in-love with. Anyway, it's a size 12, but due to the corset back, it fits from a 10-14 (The lady I bought it from was around 65kg at 5'5 and it fitted her nicely).
To be a 14 I'd have to get to around 70-75kgs, and a 12 around the 60-65 mark.
As my ticker says, I'm currently around 104. Our wedding will be early Feb next year.
I run, and am working on doing longer distances as we have a 10km race coming up in October that I want to do. I have recently (if you remember my posts) spent a few months re-establishing my eating problems, and have control of my binge-eating, and now eat very well, around 1000-1500 calories each day (1500 on workout days).
I am currently just squeezing into an 18. So there are just over 9 months until the wedding, and to get down to around 65kg I would need to lose 39kg in 41 weeks.
Has anyone else done something similar and succeeded? I feel guilty in case I don't achieve my goal, but on the other hand it looks fairly easy to get altered if I don't quite get there.
I would love any advice/tips etc Thank-you
ETA: Pics of the dress from the Maggie Sottero site!
It actually looks much nicer on the lady I bought it from, who is around a 12-14!
