A couple of AMAZING things have happened in the past few days. First - I fit into my wedding gown! WHOA! In all honesty - it fit me better yesterday than it did on my actual wedding day! I still can't get over that! I think I'm going to try that thing on every few months just to watch it start to hang on me!!
Oh, and I should note that I was wearing jean shorts under the dress here and it STILL fit! When I got married, I had to wear spanx just to suck it all in!! On the day I got married, I was so squeezed into this thing - I looked like I had boobs up to my chin. I'm just blown away by this!
The second awesome thing that happened - I won a family portrait at a local photography studio! That knocked off one of my 38 by 38! As we were getting ready to go have our portrait taken, I was freaking out because I couldn't find any pants to wear. Pete and Colin were wearing khaki's and I wanted to wear some too - but mine were SO baggy on me, they looked stupid. I thought - oh what the hell, so I grabbed a pair of 20's from my drawer and GUESS WHAT????
Those are the 20's!! They fit perfectly!! I'm still in shock! So that was awesome thing number 3! I used to wear these pants 9 or 10 years ago!
Today was the fourth awesome thing that happened. I still want to jump up and down and scream/sing/dance just thinking about it! I stepped on my scale this morning and (naked of course) I weighed 249.6!! I BROKE OUT OF THE 250's!!!!!! HOLY FRIGGIN CRAP!! Of course, with clothes on I was 250.8 but I'm hoping I can drop another pound by Thursday so Weight Watchers can make it official! When I drop 20 more pounds, I will officially be thinner than my husband has EVER known me! That just blows me away!
I am still quite congested tonight. I can't laugh or else I break into a major coughing fit. I really hope it passes soon. I am really ready to start running outside now - I can't wait to get off of that treadmill! We never did raise enough money for the race, kinda bummed - but I have found a few great races in early June that I'm thinking I may be able to enter! Hopefully I will be fully mended by then! It just seems like I've gotten illness after illness lately. I'm SO proud of the fact that I did NOT let it make me quit! I am SO excited about getting healthy and losing weight! Usually that excitement would fade as soon as I was faced with my first slice of chocolate cake. I'm happy to report that you can STILL have your cake and lose weight too - just not the entire cake. HAHAHA
Thank you so much for reading! Have a WONDERFUL night! If you're a praying person - please send up a prayer that I get well soon. I want to get back into it so badly! Thanks!!! -Monica
