Toby at Diva Marketing brought my attention to the Wedding Gown Challenge that will be held on August 5th in New York. The idea is for women to demonstrate their commitment to lifelong fitness by taking to the streets in their wedding gowns, proving that they still wear the same size as when they were brides.
I don't know about the rest of you married gals, but I vividly remember the deep seam grooves that my wedding dress left all over my upper body the day I got married. Admittedly the wedding was in Las Vegas, a place that makes me retain water like a dish sponge, but still...
Do you think there's any chance you'll ever fit into your wedding garb again? I don't. I wouldn't say I'm all that overweight, but even when I've been working out regularly and keeping the Starbucks iced mochas to a bare minimum, I'm still a different shape in my 30s than I was in my 20s. (And, seriously, I don't eat as much ice cream as I made it sound in yesterday's post.)
The Wedding Gown Challenge sounds like a worthy goal, but I'm not sure it's one I could reasonably achieve. How about you?
