Right, first things first - Today I officially hit 22kg lost. I am DONE. I really don't want to lose any more weight (I said that 2 kilos ago...) so I really need to make sure I'm eating enough to maintain. After a year of eating at a deficit it has been hard to adjust to eating enough to maintain. And I need to eat A LOT to maintain. 2000 calories would be my minimum, more if I'm exercising a lot. I eat more than my 6 foot tall fiance. I can lift more than him too, but that's another story for another post...
Excuse my crazy eyes, the flash nearly blinded me and I was trying not to blink!
Then I went wedding dress shopping with my mum and a bridesmaid (although she didn't know she was a bridesmaid at the time... I asked her over lunch after shopping).
I knew what dress I wanted when I first saw it. I looked at heaps of others online, but kept going back to the first one I loved. Then I found out that a store near my work had one, so I went to inquire about it. Not only did they have it, it was in the colour I wanted AND in my size. Talk about meant to be. I tried it on then and there and loved it, so I put it on hold and went back today to get approval from the bridesmaid and the mama.
I tried it on and they both loved it. Mum teared up. But I thought I should try on more than one. The lady at the store brought me one that was the total opposite to try on. Observe
I look like a cake. No looking like a food group on my big day.
And here is my dress
It is perfect. It fits like a glove, and only needs a few minor adjustments (like the straps need to be tightened). It is SO me. I'm not a fancy girl. My wedding dress rules were no sparkles, poofy material, lace, etc. Just simple and elegant. I think I got that! What do you think?
