Two sizes is rough, but as long as you have about two months, you can do it! I just went down two sizes for my wedding dress, and want to go another size down (I ordered it one size too small for incentive). I highly suggest Crossfit for exercise, and avoid carbs like they're the devil. You can do it!!
I'm an american size 6-8 which is a UK size 8-10. In the UK I'd say most people think a size 8 is thin! I'm technically underweight and wouldn't want to be any smaller than I am. I think the size zero culture is ridiculous. If you are naturally that size with very little effort there's no problem but there are girls starving and over exercising themselves to death. I will get off my soapbox now..
The size zero subculture is certainly ridiculous, but so is our cultural obsession with size in general. Depending on the brand, cut, and clothing type, I'm anywhere from a size 00 to a 5. The numbers are completely arbitrary; stores fudge them to lure shoppers into brand loyalty. "As long as I shop at Old Navy, I'm a size 4!" Cheap marketing trick.
Actually, 34 in the usat least I'm pretty sure average is 12 or 14. Not necessarily healthy, but average. And no one should assume op is fat, maybe her mom is just a bitch. My mom and I went through a similar phase, I was a very muscular sz 8 at 5'7'', worked out every day, she thought I was fat.
just to clear this up, uk sizes are always 2 (or 4) sizes up from american. so a uk 6 is a us 2, and a uk 14 is a us 10, a us 14 is a uk 18, and so on. geeksaresexy, you're right about lots of things but you're wrong here. i know you've checked on websites, but i've checked on the label of every item of clothing i've ever bought.
i feel that there is nothing wrong with being a size 0 in america... people are just jealous they arent that size... im a size 4 but im on the taller side for my age, so i look thinner than wat i actually am... my bf likes his girls slim as do all the boys in my town, so i hope i nvr gain any weight... besides, im not starving myself, i actually eat like a horse, im just really active with extracuriculars and sports... i thinner that 90% of my friends and i constantly encourage them that they are not fat, as they say they see themselves
#176 You honestly sound like one of those girls that have all the boys at your feet and secretly spit at your friends because of it in that comment.. Who tf cares what size you are anyway, if you're happy in your skin, no need to change. if someone tells you to lose/gain weight, politely tell them to fuck themselves. if you want to lose/gain weight, go for it! don't do it for others, do it for yourself to make you happy, or you'll just be miserable. sorry about the bitchy mum OP, hopefully you got the dress tailored or changed to your size in time :)
good outcome: it works and you look slim and fantastic for your wedding day. bad outcome: the zipper busts open when he tries to 'kiss the bride' well if you get the bad outcome, you get to post another FML. yay?
