Since the weight is almost all the way off, and I'm in a better place, physically and emotionally, we've started the wedding planning. Finally!! Unfortunately he proposed right when I got sick and things just kept getting worse. He has been so amazing to stick by me through everything!
We've set our date - May 25, 2013!! We've booked our venue, photographer, planner, and photo booth. We met with a videographer tonight and will be meeting with another soon. And we started contacting caterers - now that's the fun part! ;)
I also got my dress!!! It's so beautiful. I absolutely love it. And the best part is I don't look half bad in it! It's a little big, and will be bigger by next year, but the seamstress should be able to take it in.
I'm having such a blast picking out decorations, colors, etc. IT feels great to finally be able to do this!
Hope you are all working hard and feeling great. Keep up the good work!!
*3.5 pounds to first goal
*8.5 to dream goal

When I hit 89 pounds lost, I decided it was time to donate the fat clothes I had to buy over the past two years. What a waste of money - gah!
It felt so good to purge those clothes. I'm not sure why I was hanging on to them. But it was time for them to go. I tried on a lot of them to see how far I've come and it was truly astonishing.
Clothes of that size will never, never! be back in this house again.
I'm fitting back into my jeans from 2 years ago. I still don't look as good in them as I did, but I can button them and wear them!!!
I went shopping the other day and bought all XS and S tops and a size 2 pant!! It feels good to be so close to my original size, but it's also a little frustrating because I want to be there so bad. But I'm feeling so much better about myself. I still have days where my self confidence is low and I feel like a fat cow and hate people seeing me eat, etc. But in general, I'm feeling good. I want to hang out with friends again, go and do things, live life!
AND! Because I'm feeling so good and life is getting organized again, we've started planning our wedding - officially! We've set the date, booked the venue and photographer and are busy, busy!
*4 pounds to 1st goal,
*9 pounds to awesome-sauce
Keep up the good work SP friends!!

Ugh. Made it through over a year of holidays without gaining any weight, and now from this Easter ....I'm up a pound! I find it hard to believe it would show up so fast, but who knows. In fact, throughout this whole journey, 14 months, I haven't gained any weight. So this is hard for me to accept!
Hopefully it's just water weight. But I did eat quite a bit. Now that I'm closer to goal weight I don't have as much wiggle room. Boo.
I'm pretty discouraged about it. That's two-ish weeks of work right there!!! Stupid treats weren't worth it.
