I accidently lost more weight, and the wedding plan

Friday, June 14, 2013

About a month ago I moved out of home. I know for most young people this is a time where junk food is consumed because there is no one to tell them they can't anymore. For this 24-going-on-47-year-old it was an opportunity to do exactly the opposite! I wanted a decent serving of veggies with every meal, less fast food, not to have my food drowned in oil and butter before it got to the table. Now we are not used to fast food, and when we ate it for the first time on Thursday night neither of us enjoyed it and it made us feel a bit sick! We eat healthy food because it is cheaper and it makes us feel better, and it is tastier. It also has had a side effect, and that is losing more weight without even trying. I have lost around a kilo in the past month, and Luke has lost 2-3kg in the same time frame.

That puts me at 22kg lost in 18 months.
Here is my before and after side by side

I'm not happy with how thin my face looks in photos now... So I don't know what I'll do about that!

Onto weddings!

So I have been engaged all of a week and my wedding is planned. I don't muck around. We will be married on Easter Sunday next year and a beautiful, old restaurant near a beach. We booked our photographer on Thursday, and the company is familiar with the location so we should get some good shots. I have printed up prototype save the date cards, we are finalising the guest list next weekend and sending them out (since it's a public holiday weekend we want to give heaps of notice). Celebrant is not something I care about, I just want someone to make it legal. I know what cake I want, I know the colours I want. My BFF is coming over from the UK for a holiday and she will be going dress shopping with me. My hair person is all sorted, just need to work out what I want and someone to do makeup.

A question I get asked now that I'm engaged (besides from "I better be coming to the wedding"... Ummm... No) is about whether or not I'll be losing weight for the wedding. And the answer is no, I won't be losing anymore weight for the wedding. I want to maintain my current weight and level of fitness so that I can look as good as possible on the day. I want to love myself that day, and love the photos afterwards :D

    Congrats for getting all of your planning done!!

    Honestly, I do not think your face looks too thin in your photos. You look HAPPY!! I think maybe you just aren't used to seeing yourself this way in photos, and it may take awhile before you are used to how you look. You love how you feel, right?? And remember, women tend to lose weight around their face and nect area before anywhere else. ( At least that's how I am.) Love the way you look....DHTB (dear husband to be) does!!

    So great! Isn't it great not feeling the need to crash diet for a wedding?? Since I only had 4 weeks between proposal to wedding, it was espeically sweet for me to already be on this journey and much more comfortable with my body.

    Way to go with your eating and planning!!!
