I'm NEVER going back to where I was!

I started out on Spark in August of 2011 at 337 pounds. Over the course of the next year I lost over 100 pounds and have been in maintenance for over a year now. Working to stick to the low 180's or high 170's.

So much has changed since I lost the weight... I NEVER want to go back to that girl I was before. Time to live life like it should be lived!


Highest ever recorded weight - 344 (July 2010)
Starting weight this time around - 337 (Aug 2011)

Picked up my dress yesterday! EEP! So close!

Back is feeling better. Haven't done much working out, but I've been staying pretty busy and active anyway. Just have to stretch it out once in awhile to work a few kinks out, but I should be dominating the dance floor come Saturday!

All the little pieces are falling in place! I'm ready for it! Just want it here already! Good luck with your finishing touches!

As Catholics, the important part to us is the ceremony where and when we exchange our vows. Almost everything that has to do with the ceremony is handled by the Church, so if anything goes wrong, they handle it. Outside of that, it's just a big party, so... who cares?! I don't! I want to marry him and that doesn't require too much extra detail. If something at the reception isn't perfect, pffft! Who cares! ;)

As if we don't have enough to worry about, our bodies betray us and make everything more difficult! Here's to healed hips and backs and happy brides!

Things are so incredibly crazy! Less than two weeks!

.. but at the same time, I probably say, "I don't care" to most things. "These bows aren't the right length." "I don't care." "This doesn't match." "I don't care." etc. etc. I'm getting married. We're hosting a huge, free party. If people want to complain about that, they can go right ahead with their miserable lives. I'M GETTING MARRIED! :)

Stay strong! Get happy! Get excited! It will all be worth it!

Sept 13! We're closing in! :) Can't wait to share photos!

I'm sure I have a lot to do with the wedding, I just don't care! That might be terrible, but we already have the whole ceremony in order, and that is what's important to us as Catholics. The reception is just a party, albeit an awesome one, and we're handing out free food and drinks and entertainment, so the attendees can't complain too much!

I am getting my dress altered by a woman who works out of her home. I had a fitting yesterday, and then another one in two weeks, and then another one after that. If i lose weight, which would be awesome but doubtful, I think (I hope) she'll be able to handle it. But I love how it fits now, so I'm not worried too much either way.

I'm ready to give the hair up! I'm donating after the honeymoon. Can't wait to get rid of it! I know I'll be eating those words after the newness of a fresh cut is gone, but it grows quickly enough it won't really be a problem.

Hey there!

I am sorry that I have been gone for a while, I had some challenges and set backs this past year, and I posted a blog about it ysterday...

But I am back, I re-started this healthy journey last Thursday and I am glad to be back! I need to get healthy and lose this weight.

I am looking forward to cheering on my fellow Sparkers, and hearing from them.

Please let me know how you have been, and what's new with your journey.

Please Keep in touch,
Hugs,
Lisa
