Once again, my SparkFriends came to the rescue. Thank you to everyone who left comments on my last blog. And thanks for chatting with me Julie!

I needed a swift kick in the butt to remind me how far I've come and that I am beautiful right now, and I will be beautiful on my wedding day. I went shopping with my mom last night and dress number 42 was THE ONE. I don't want to go into details, not that JD ever reads my blog, but let's just say, I stopped trying to wear the skin tight dresses because I've lost weight and chose a dress that really compliments my body as it is now and will look even better in a few more pounds.

I didn't cry or scream. I didn't even really let on that it was my dress in the store, because it is by a designer that my uncle's bridal store carries so I knew I wanted to get it from him. But when we walked out of the store, I just looked at my mom and said, that's my dress.

It is such a relief to feel amazing in something. Now to truly focus on losing these last thirty pounds and toning my upper arms. So if anyone has any great arm workouts to throw my way, let me know! I think it's time to restart Jillian Michaels. She always seems to jump start some weight loss.

Thank you SparkFriends for always supporting me and reminding me of how far I've come. Your words really got me in a good mind set and I think truly helped me find my dress.

Hope you had a good weekend!
