Hiedi v. Prom Dress

I went shopping with my mom for a prom dress today and although a lot of the dresses were quite flattering around my flabby stomach I was disappointed that my usual size didn't fit me I don't want to look like a stuffed sausage but i also don't want to go a size bigger. I'm considering restricting for the next week until prom but I'm not sure if I'll be able to there a healthy way to get off the extra belly fat? I'm not allowed to weigh myself so that wont matter...? what to do??

Re: Hiedi v. Prom Dress

Try to get past the number, I know it's hard but in this case you really should.

"Fancy" dresses (prom, wedding etc) are sized differently than normal sizes. I had to go up 2 sizes. Check the measurements in a catalog and you will see.

I know how easy it is to fix on a number but you can't

Have the salesperson bring you dresses but don't tell you the sizes.

Have fun at prom!
