I've mentioned before that Andy and I went to Disney World for our honeymoon in 2007. That whole year leading up to our wedding, I easily gained at least 20 pounds, maybe more. We had bought a house and we were living on our own for the first time, I was working a second job, and planning the wedding became a stressful thing for a while (ahem, very Type-A mom and sister vs. very NOT Type-A me!). The poundage came on easily and I was probably the heaviest I'd ever been (up to that point) the day I said I do.
I remember the weight I was the day I first started trying on wedding dresses, though, and am happy to say I am almost 10 pounds less than that now! It got me thinking, as I looked over all the pictures from this past trip, that it would be great to see how I've changed since then, and for the better!
So, looking back, here's a few pics showing the then and now! (Sorry if some of these are repeats from the last blog -- I'm the photographer in this household, so there aren't as many pics of me!)
And now, 2012:
I see a big difference. I actually think I might look a little younger in the pictures now (aside from a few laugh lines, maybe!). But definitely healthier. It makes me a little sad that my younger self couldn't be where I am now, but more than anything I am proud of myself! Look at what I've done and will continue to do! I can't wait to see where I am a few months from now!
