Before the wedding, I went from the 260s to the 240s. It was so awesome to lose that much weight and to notice my XL workout shirts loosening more and more. I was excited about the prospect of continuing my weight loss journey, fitting in a L tee, and possibly, shopping in regular clothing stores for the first time since I was in high school!
I should have known better. In May, at my last dress fitting, the seamstress politely told me that I cannot lose anymore weight or the beadwork on my dress would be affected. So, I decided to still work-out to keep with the routine, but to go back to eating junk. I know, weird thinking right? I did maintain though, and felt pretty darn slim on the wedding day!
Fast forward 11 months, my scale says 270.9 lbs. Why is that, folks? Because my month of slipping turned into that ugly habit that I’ve had for most of my life. I ended up quitting the Y, because I had better things to do, apparently, and well, cooking healthy just didn’t matter so much anymore (no dress to fit in).
So, I gained a newlywed 30 in less than a year. What am I going to do about it? Back on track…
I’ve been debating sharing these pictures on the Internet, but I joined Bobbi+Mike’s healthy train, so it’s not like I can hold these as a secret for much longer.
I hope to take pictures like this monthly in the same get-up to show progress. Heck, I just want to see some progress. These pictures are TERRIBLE, and I know I can’t live life like this forever. Wish me luck, folks. It’s time to lose this flab!
