Hello my name is Reality...

Tuesday, November 23, 2010

So today while trying on my wedding dress I told the alterations lady that I was going to try to lose a few pounds before I would bring the dress back in to be altered. Thinking I'd need to loose only like 10 -15lbs to be satisfied.
The alterations woman said if I lose weight all around I might even be able to exchange my dress for the next size down instead of doing expensive alterations. So there is my motivation.

When I got home and stepped on the scale I saw I weighed the most I have ever. 167. Wow... so reality set in and I realised that I will be needing to lose more like 25-35lbs to really be happy with my weight.

I have never really worried too much about my weight but seeing that number was really dissapointing. One of my Bridesmaids recommended SparkPeople and so here I am, ready to take on these unwanted pounds and wave goodbye to them.

    My heaviest weight was 193, when I took some before pictures I started crying. It's amazing how we can let ourselves slip and somehow avoid noticing. :-/ you can do it though we will be weight loss/knitting buddies!

    I saw a great reminder on another Sparker's page today. It took the expression "It is what it is" and changed it to "It is what you make it." You have the ability to change your reality starting right now. You can do this.

    Best wishes for your journey. I am sure you will make a beautiful bride!
