It's been an interesting week. Filled with more poor choices and more weight gain. So I made a decision yesterday morning. I looked up the wedding dress I'm hoping to get, printed it out, and wrote "I want to fit in my dress!" and put it on the fridge for when I want to start grazing for food I don't need. I also decided I'm going to do another detox. I've been saying yes to gluten too much and my digestive system probably has another yeast infection from it because I can't stop gaining weight and I can't stop saying no to gluten. So I'm doing the detox where I first found out I'm intolerant to that crap to stop myself cold turkey and get rid of the yeast in my system. Last time I did it last summer, I dropped 9 pounds in a week, so I'm hoping for a repeat of the results. I know it's not going to be easy in the least, but I know that I can do it. I've come too far to quit now and I really do want to fit in that dress. I'll post a link to what I'm hoping for at the end. It's pretty. Not in the color I'm planning on getting, I want it in red, but it's still gorgeous. And I need to lose about 10 or so dress sizes to fit into the biggest size it sells for. I can do this. I know I can. I must say no to gluten and to overeating and say yes to more exercise. It's past time to get serious. I know I've said this before, but I'm really getting angry at myself. I'm going to use that to my advantage instead of letting it destroy me. So here's to a better week. I'll post again soon. Now, for the picture :D

    The dress is gorgeous but so are you. Stop being angry at yourself over your failures and just push to do better with each day. It isn't easy but in the long run you will be so much healthier and feel so much better! Good luck and keep on pushing. You can do it!

    Aw- beautiful dress! You will look stunning! If you choose to marry before hitting that smaller size, you can also look into getting a seamstress to make you a dress. It's really popular to do that in SA- and will take a lot of pressure off the weightloss journey!

    Weddings are GREAT motivators to getting your act together, but remember to do it in love. I used to have internal dialogue like ...
    "Good gosh I must stop eating this cake. It's so bad for me. No wonder I can't fit into any of my clothes. I'm such a pig. I can't even stop eating. I have no self control. I'm completely useless, I can't even stop eating! Normal people don't eat so much..." and so forth. and you know what? I didn't lose weight.

    Love yourself.Forgive yourself. And do things FOR yourself instead of against yourself. Yes, you need to give up gluten. But instead of being angry with yourself, do it to love yourself.Sounds kooky, but it works. And it's so much more lovely to hear your dialogue say something nice and kind like: Yum, this is such a great gluten free dinner. It tastes so great. I can feel my cells getting stronger and my body healing from all the nutrients. I love fueling my body with such delicious healthful foods!

    I know you can do this! and I know that you can do it in love too :)

    Weddings are the BIGGEST motivation!! I dropped weight before my wedding and had to get the dress I bought taken in! Visual motivation is the best!! I have one hanging up on the outside of my closet door and it stares at me every time I am in my room. I plan on making one for my fridge. Another good idea, which can be expensive at first is throwing away all of the bad food in your house and replacing it with good food.

    A visual remind of your goals should help! Good luck with the detox.
