This year 2013, my husband had a LOT of weddings to attend...translation I needed to make sure I was ready for it. When I heard we had to go to three weddings for his co-workers, I was super scared. Then, I had two other invitations to weddings. So, this year, I had to go to 5 weddings in all just from October to December. That's a lot of weddings. I think this is the most I have used my Spanx in one year.
I know I am just halfway with my weight loss. I still have lots of work to do. I plan to do round 2 of Insanity in January then do Chalean Extreme again.
The weighing scale might have only gone down 8 lbs from December 2012 but I am very glad I feel more confident in a gown. Here's the photo of the wedding in 2012.
This year, I did a round of Chalean Extreme with Turbo Fire, then Insanity. Then I am on another round of Chalean Extreme. Will be starting with the Lean Phase tomorrow. Here's a pic of the last wedding I needed to attend to this year.

Finally, the wedding for my niece is done. I thought finally, my arms would look great in my gown. I think it looked better than the previous events I had to go to...but I still felt insecure.
I know that I am just halfway thru my weight loss but it was frustrating that wearing the gown would still show my body. The weather was so hot and humid so my makeup got shiny and oily. As in, you could probably deep fry chicken on my face. I was perspiring a lot!
I am just posting one pic. It is the most decent one. This is after the wedding. I didn't post the pictures in church because my face was glistening with OIL!!
Maybe I should do morning workouts to add to my routine. I am not usually a morning person. I still have two weddings to go to this year. I know I am still going to be the fat one.
My husband said I am pretty tough on myself and he says baby steps...but a lot of progress has been made.

I went out last Friday with my friends and one of them asked how my workouts are going (Note: these friends aren't really into exercising). So, I said you know I finished Insanity despite all my wounds --my wound on my palm, elbow and bumps here and there. This other friend said why do you do those things anyway. And I said because my stomach is getting big and I have events to go to. I want to look good.
Then they said you know you just have to accept that at our age, it will be harder and harder. So we just have to accept that our bodies grow as we age. Then this friend says, oh you just want to be ARM CANDY for your husband. So, what if I want to look good at events I need to attend.
Then, I told my kids and my husband. They said, what friends! My husband said their way of thinking is exactly why people are overweight. Just accepting without any action.
It is a good thing I have friends in Spark who push me to work at it. I guess my last ranting and this one makes me work more just to show them, see!
I will work harder than ever! I got so irritated with their comments. This is actually the first time I heard of negative stuff about working out. I guess some people say stuff without really thinking. I just felt bad to hear this from my friends.
I'll show them!!!!
