I’m getting married in less than a year. Crazy. I feel like we just got engaged! But in a few weeks my mom and sister are flying down to go wedding dress shopping with me. This is, sadly, the only part of planning the wedding that I’m actually looking forward to. I’ve tried on a few dresses already but didn’t find anything I loved, though it did help me find out what I actually liked and what looked good on me.
I suppose I’m like every bride to be in that I want to lose weight for my wedding day and order a dress a whole size down from what I currently wear. I certainly am making all the right noises… but I haven’t been very consistent. I kicked the sweet habit for a few days but couldn’t keep it going. I started running. I got better with portion sizes… but none of it sticked.
That is until I saw my beautiful white Aztec Diamond breeches with the black lace. The ones that fit beautifully only a year ago but I hadn’t actually gotten a chance to wear (true story, tags are still on). I pulled them on and, to my relief, they zipped but truthfully, they looked horrid. They were pulled tight and I had a unseemly muffin top sticking out. Yuck.
And that’s when things got serious. There was no way in hell I was going to not be able to fit in my white breeches! I’m proud to say that I have already lost 5 lbs and I did it during the Thanksgiving Holidays. Not really sure how I did that except that I was careful with the booze, drank lots of water and skipped the mash potatoes.
I can do this!
