For some women, finding the perfect wedding dress is almost as crucial as finding the perfect guy. And when they find ‘the one’ (as in ‘the dress’), they’ll do whatever it takes to look their best in it.
When Emma Barwood, a UK mother of three young girls, walked into a bridal boutique and spotted a stunning white gown, it was love at first sight. But upon trying the dress, all she could do was fake a smile.
“All I could see were bingo wings and saggy fat bulging over the bodice,” Emma said. “I’d found my dream dress, but I didn’t see a beautiful bride—instead, I saw a frumpy, 20-stone mum.”
That’s when it hit her. Emma was determined to lose the weight and belly, and took on The Challenge.
Her days of gorging on a tub of Maltesers and meat pizzas were over. Instead, Emma enjoyed a vi shake for breakfast and lunch, and a healthy meal for dinner.
It wasn’t long before she lost 15 lbs, and from there, her weight just kept on plummeting.
“With the pounds still dropping off, to my delight, the boutique ordered a new one [dress] in the same style and agreed to take it in to a size 12,” Emma happily shared.
To add to the joy of fitting into her dress, Emma’s seven-year-old daughter said to her, “You look like a princess Mummy.”
Eight months after saying “I do,” Emma is now down to an astonishing size 8.
“I thought there was a fat chance I’d ever be slim,” said Emma, “but thanks to my perfect wedding frock, I’m the incredible shrinking bride!”
