It's been a LONG LONG time since I've even logged in. Right after my last blog post, I met my now fiance and we are getting married on September 7th! Not only have I gained new love, I've gained probably 2/3 of my weight back. It's amazing what happens when you're focused on someone else and if you let their "love you no matter what" attitude cause you to forget about your healthy goals.
Well, my dress will be here sometime in June, and I think I will set up my first fitting for July 1st. This gives me 3 months to lose as much as possible. After that I will have to maintain my weight for a couple months in order for it to be altered properly. I want to feel comfortable and beautiful on my special day. Currently I can't stand the cottage cheese that has seemed to park itself on my arms and my extra chin. I won't belittle myself or keep complaining, but need to come to terms with the fact that I have to take control.
Not only am I wedding planning, but I am house hunting (lots of paperwork) and acting as a primary caregiver for my stepfather who is on hospice. I'm also still working part time. I let the stress of it all accumulate and cause me to eat whatever I wanted whenever I wanted. Losing weight can remind me of how I can keep control over at least something right now and not get buried in emotions, aka binge eating. With the help of some great friends, my fiance and my family, I know I can succeed.
Peace, love and veggies!
