Final Dress Fitting: The Arms Issue

Today is my final bridal fitting and i am pumped. I cannot believe this ladies but our wedding is only ten days away.  When we got engaged i was initially obssessed with losing weight but then i fell off the wagon more than once.  I have reached my goal of looking a little less heavier than usual.  My face looks slimmer and my body overall is much more tonier!
 
One of my most problematic areas has been my arms! You see i have always had toned arms however as i have hit my 20s and beyond, my arms have gone to the wayside and it has become more of my mother's arms. 
 
My mother in her 50s has an amazing body but her arms are what you would call, a healthy size.  And since my arms has always been my problem areas, i have attempted to focus on this throuhgout the last four months.  And they look less heavier and more tonned than usual. 
 
 For years i thought i was working on my arms but it wasn't until i met Mr. Pancakes that he told me i have been working on my shoulders and back.  Hence his nickname for me when we first started dating: Miss StrongBack! Cute i know.  Needless to say, the last four months, i have been deligiently working on my arms and they are not where i want them to be but they will do on our wedding day. 
 
I have changed my views on fitness and healthy living .  It's not about fitting into a dress, it's about being healthy every single day and fitting into my skin.  So as i go into my final fitting this evening, i am excited to put on my wedding dress as it will be on my wedding day and be in awe of this moment!

Beautiful post. I like the lines: "...fitness and healthy living . It's not about fitting into a dress, it's about being healthy every single day and fitting into my skin.fitness and healthy living .

That's the way to go. I am sure you are going to be the most beautiful bride ever :). Have a great day.

I absolutely love this post. I agree that fitness is a journey and shouldn't begin or end with a wedding day or some other special event. I'm sure you will look gorgeous in your dress. Enjoy your day and forget about the rest :).
