Let me start by saying that I'm sure there will be at least one or two people that will read this post and probably want to punch me in the face...but I promise you this "problem" is not nearly as fun to have as you would think.
So I've always been a petite girl, I'm all of 5 feet tall (5'1 on a good day) and it wasn't until after I graduated from college that I weighed enough to be allowed to donate blood. I eat, trust me, I can pack it away with the best of them. That was actually one of the things that first attracted Kristian to me. I've just been blessed/cursed with a fast metabolism. However, my mother assures me this will not last forever---note she weighed 90 pounds on her wedding day.
Because of my petiteness (is that a word?) including my lack of boobage it's always been a challenge to find clothes and I knew going into it that when it came time to get a wedding dress it wouldn't be any easier.
I ordered a size 2 dress which was the smallest they had. When the dress arrived in December it actually fit quite well except in the boob part which was made for someone with at least C cups and the length was a tad long.
Well here's my problem, the last few months and last few weeks especially have been very stressful. And unfortunately I'm the type of person that when I'm stressed or anxious I lose my appetite and therefore lose weight. Between my first and second dress fitting I probably lost about 5 pounds which is a lot on someone my size. My seamstress is NOT happy. She's having a hard enough time taking the dress in and fixing the boob part. She told my mother last weekend that if I continue to lose weight I won't be able to fit into my dress, it will just fall off me. She can only take it in so much.
So this week I've been on a mission to gain weight since I have my next fitting this weekend. This has been my menu:
Breakfast- everything bagel with cream cheese
Lunch- McD's chicken sandwich and chocolate milkshake
Dinner- pork chops and mashed potatoes
Breakfast- same as Monday
Lunch- Chinese food
Dinner- Fettuccine Alfredo and Baked Ziti and 3 Mozzarella sticks
Breakfast- same as Monday
Lunch- Leftover pasta from Tuesday
Dinner- a Smoothie (I fell asleep early and didn't really eat dinner after we met with our DJ)
Breakfast- egg and cheese on Croissant
So you would think I would not only gain weight but be in heaven eating all this. WRONG. Not only do I not seem to be gaining weight but I feel totally disgusting. All I want right now is a nice healthy salad and some fruit. I feel like my insides are rotting. Ugh.
All I want to is to gain about 5-7 pounds and I'll be fine and my dress should fit well but I can't seem to keep weight on right now.
So while most brides try to lose weight right before the wedding I have the opposite problem. I know I know you hate me. But I swear I can't help it!
So I'm asking does anyone have any weight gaining tips that won't also make me completely flabby? I still want to look toned on the wedding day.
