Shed to Wed Wedding Diet Thursday

I have been to Weight Watchers and have discovered that I weigh 6lbs more than I feared. I am tipping the scales at 13stone 6lbs. This is approximately 3 stone more than when I met the lovely Marshy. This is also a stone more than when I last considered dieting.

Picture from Little Britain of Bubbles Devere taken from This is also a great substitute for an artist's impression of my self-image sporting the 'Vintage meets Grecian' trend.

My lovely and very 'on message' Weight Watcher's group leader Rachel suggested we measure ourselves too. Oddly enough this has come as a far greater shock.

This week at Miss Bush's I measured a porcelain doll of a bride. A tiny, perfectly proportioned woman with a 22 1/2 waist. This is unusual but it has served to give me a huge comparison between my stats

Bust 47" (I know I am staggered too - no wonder my back aches!
Waist 40" (Aghast - in the diabetes risk bracket and the kind of measurement that takes me into some   uncomfortable regions on a bridal size chart!)
Hips 43" (this is supposed to be my small bit!)

This means I would have to order myself a Maggie Sottero size 18/20 and they are generous.

I feel taken aback. All the stats are slightly grimmer than I thought.

However, there was a very lovely woman at Weight Watchers that had already lost 30lbs and a bride that visited me late yesterday that had lost 2 stone with Weight Watchers and bought a size 10 Jenny Packham sample! Clearly the programme works and added to the trainer Geoff's regime I hope to make an indent in these stats fast.

Rachel, our Beloved Leader, has given me a record chart to fill in that suggests I can lose 5% of me by week 7.

I however have an alternative target - significant improvement by the 29th February. The day, should I so chose, I could propose. This is just over a month - time to get the trainers on!

Annabel from Love My Dress has looked into the traditions of this - check out her blog post on the subject and where I shamelessly nicked this image!

  1. obviously like your website however you need to test the spelling on quite a few of your posts. Several of them are rife with spelling problems and I find it very troublesome to tell the reality however I'll certainly come back again.
