No one wants to hear this, just as I wish I wasn't writing it:
I gained weight back after the wedding and honeymoon...and leaving my job, and finding another one, and studying and passing another insurance certification...and having my car break down and having to buy a new one....
Ok so I've had a lot of stuff happen since getting married in August, haha!
Don't get me wrong, it certainly wasn't all bad, but" sh*t hit the fan" today when I realized none of my dress pants fit anymore.
I'm not proud, but its sort of amazing how fast I gained weight back, and how much so quickly. Its enough to make my head spin!
Here's to a great week!

I had a goal to lose 26 pounds by today, June 15th. I started my challenge on January 13th 2012.
As of 5 minutes ago, I have lost 26.6 POUNDS!!!!!!!
I am so happy and proud, and thankful that my hard work paid off
I have my first wedding dress fitting tomorrow, and I'm not scared... I'm excited! When I first found my dress, I couldn't get it laced up properly. There was a little too much of me to fit.
I told the ladies who worked at the shop, "Don't worry, I started a much healthier lifestyle, and I plan on losing some weight."
They told me, "Oh honey, we hear that from every bride, and it rarely happens. We'll just order a larger size."
Well, I can't wait to show the ladies at the boutique what I was able to accomplish in 6 months :)

Just in case I don't lose 1.2 pounds by tomorrow's weigh in, I'm writing this to remind myself that its ok.
I'm reminding myself that I looked thin and fit yesterday, and the outfit I have on today although comfortable, may need to be retired. I'm "swimming" in it.
Just in case I don't meet tomorrow's June 15th goal of a total 26 pounds lost, I got darn close, & I'll keep doing what I'm doing. I rock, and I'm 0.2 pounds away from losing 25 pounds since January 13th.
I'm one proud chick. I think that's one AWESOME accomplishment for someone who craves cake 24 hours a day
It's amazing what can be done if you put your mind to it. Now, I'm going to go for a jog after work...just in case

Actually, a little OVER half way!
I have 10 more lbs to go to be at my "ideal" weight for my height. I can't believe it! I'm really excited that I'm so close!
In 2 weeks I've lost about 5 lbs, and got to change my profile pic again to "Lost 15 Pounds." I am so proud!
I really feel like I'm putting in the work for the success. If I eat over my calories one day, I get right back on track and try to be just a little more active the next day to even it out.
Something a little surprising from the past 2 weeks:
For a few days, I ate to the higher end of my calorie range, and lost more weight than when I usually eat to the lower end (every day). I was told sometimes this tricks your body into letting go of some fat, rather than holding onto it. I think it worked!
It blows my mind that I might actually feel comfortable wearing a bathing suit this year!
I sincerely hope everyone who reads this has a great weekend, and keeps on doing their best!
No one just wakes up one day skinny, and no one just wakes up one day fat. Tiny steps turn into big results...whether it be good or bad, so- let's keep trying to make the best decisions we can!
