Okay so I have an engagement party and I need a dress. I don't usually wear dresses but I am going to attempt it. I always feel like a balloon. So what is the best dress style for a short and still chubby girl???

I'm hour glass shaped and I find Fit & Flare to be the most flattering style on me.

City Chic (mentioned already!) is my favorite brand, they fit well and are nearly always flattering. You can find the brand at Nordstrom and Macy's. I suggest shopping online, the selection is soooo much better in plus sizes. I just order tons of options and promptly return (for free) what I don't want.

The other brands I've had success with most often are Gabby Skye and Adrianna Papell. I believe I buy those from Nordstrom.

For a less expensive option, I have liked some dresses I've bought from Amazon. Search on Amazon for "Retro Women's Dresses" or "1950's Women's Dresses". I have found the styles really cute and flattering, but sometimes the fit is off. Also the material is kind of odd and stiff, and not as nice as the brands mentioned above. So make sure you buy Prime items only, sold by Amazon directly, and they have the "Free Return" option. Lots of Plus Size options for under $40, so that may make more sense while you're in the rapid weight loss phase.

      From Combo to ala carte, my how meals have changed. Hubby and I would both get combo meals, and be able to finish them and that's after finishing off a basket of chips and salsa! These days we get ala carte or even share a combo. And I'm trying to be more conscious of the small bites. And trying to eat a little something in between. That is harder as I have always tried not to snack in between meals, but lately by the time it was time to eat, I'm not taking the time to chew and then it all goes down hill from there.  Still working on it and feeling the body changing YES!

      NSV: yesterday a business man came into to see one of the bosses. He gave me a candy bar first and then the paperwork. I said I would be sure to give to supervisor. he says no candy is for you. I said its ok, he was , NO ITS FOR YOU. I said thank you , that I had had weight surgery so I tend to stay away from candy. He looked at me up and down and said you don't need surgery (probably didn't understand what I had said).  It's nice knowing that I look fit enough to where I would not need one, lol. Working out 25 out of 31 days definitely helps!
