Dress Shopping!!

SO we went to do a final sizing for our bridesmaid dresses. Last time I was teettering between a size 14 and 16. I had tried on the 16 which fit fine but I could also fit into the 14 in another dress (they didnt have my size in the actual dress) so when I went in today I tried on both sizes.

Of course with my luck the zipper on the 14 was broken. Once again the 16 fit fine but was a little loose on top. SO the girls convinced me to get the 14. I think that the 14 will fit me no matter how much I lose between then and now I just need to make sure I dont gain.

Now it is important to point out that I am going on an all you can eat cruise in less than a month. But then I will have 4 months to get back on track and ideally back to the low 170's. I am not worried, I think it will be great. I LOVE, love my dress btw. It is awesome and I will wear it over and over! Then to boot I only had to pay $15 for it since the mom of the bride is kicking in $100 towards each of our dresses!

Overall it was fun and sucessful.

On the food/weight loss front. I have been recording my calories and although I ate about 1700 calories I am feeling good about keeping track and seeing what I am really consuming.

Hello! My first time visiting your site and I love it! I was a "veggie virgin" for the longest time. Growing up our veggies consisted of corn, potatoes, carrots, cucumbers, tomotoes and lettuce! I've learned to love brussel sprouts, snap peas (so good), and peas! Anyhoo-wow, reading your blog I felt like I could have written so many of the exact same thing. I too have lost my "spark" for all this and I'm not sure why. And what you wrote about the treadmill being "daunting" what a perfect word to describe the feeling; You know you should but you don't. And you know if you start you WILL feel better and you know it's the best thing to do. But you still don't -what gives? Actually, just today I had my husband move the darn thing even CLOSER to our 50 inch tv in hopes that that will get me off my tush!

I'm glad I found your site. Love your honesty. I will definitely be following you.

Thank you Lucy. It makes me feel so much better to hear that someone else feels this way. It can be so hard when you want to do something so badly but you can't find the momentum to move
