To be a Bridesmaid....

Needing some Advice... I feel so trapped by my body!

A friend of mine has asked me to be Bridesmaid in her wedding in April.. So she has been planning this wedding for well over a year. She had 4 bridesmaids, 2 have dropped out for various reasons. So with 3 and a bit months to go before the wedding she has asked if I will now be her Bridesmaid...

I can't help but feel that she didn't ask me 12 months ago because I couldn't fit into the tiny designer bridesmaids dresses that she has chosen. So now the suggestion is that we find dress to match in with the other 2 bridesmaids that will be wearing the size 10 designer dresses.... Do I want to cry right now! Yes.... ohhhh

She is a lovely friend I love her and her husband to be dearly... I did wonder why I wasn't asked 12 months ago... but I understood her childhood friends were more appropriate...

So wedding is end of April and My banding date is end of March!!!!! It will be less then 4 weeks between the dates.

I am searching for a black cocktail dress.... not having much luck!

I wish I was getting banded tomorrow...

Today we had lunch some lovely friends. I decided on the spare of the moment to tell them about my decision to get the LAP band. Ive only told my parents and sister so far... It was a massive step to actually say it out loud. They asked why and I told them a few of the reasons of course there are so many reasons but difficult to go into them all!

I know that the decision to get the LAP band wont be taken so well by everyone but I am really not fazed by it! I am making a positive step to changing my life and getting healthy!

I just want March to be here now!! Not to wish my life away I just want to start working towards it now !

I've found so many inspiring blogs on here!!! I am having a great time reading everyones stories!
