WLW Episode 6

wlw

I honestly don't know what I am planning to write about here… I had planned on talking about how getting off your routine can be difficult when trying to lose weight… but everyone knows that! :D I was looking for a picture to compare with another.. and the same time my mom and sister were making another. They had no clue that I was even doing that… when they sent me their picture it just brought me to tears- for real. I have never posted my wedding pictures online… they are so embarrassing. I hate them. I was the biggest ever. I couldn't even tell you what I weigh in them. I have always been big, always struggling with my weight, not very active… but when I went to college I gained like the Freshman 30. I lived off of ramen noodles and KFC Mashed Potatoes and Gravy. I don't eat either of those today… Sister took a picture of a picture while we were in Texas at my dad's and said "We are so using this…" I had zero intentions of doing so. It is strange how something can hit you so hard in the stomach… I wasted so much of my life FAT! My high school and college years. But I am SO blessed the man that is my husband still loved me for ME.. not for my outward… But anyways.. here is the picture:

I was only 19 when I married my husband… and I looked like that. I literally HATE my pictures. I have set goals to take beach wedding pictures (before we lived at the beach) 2x before. When I get to {THIS} weight, we will take pictures.. I want to wear a little white sundress… but both times I have successfully lost weight, yea-- you guessed it.. I get pregnant. So the goal this time is to NOT get pregnant… and to get those pictures! The picture above makes me so very sad. I am just so thankful I know what to do to lose weight.. the issue is, I DO STRUGGLE.. and it is so very easy for me to put weight on… My family has said each time I have lost weight-- "Wow, I didn't see you this big!" I know I was NEVER happy with me, comfortable with ME.. I always had skinny friends…. ALL of my college friends were skinny. I was jealous, but I ate and ate and ate.. Just ask my roommate. UGH! Wow, seriously, I keep scrolling up… and just shaking my head.

I just read a blog today about a mom who said "I will never look like I did when I got married." She had a beautiful wedding dress, in shape, looking happy…. For me it is the other way- I don't want to ever look the way I did on my wedding day. So freaking embarrassing. So.. anyways.. on to better pictures. HAHA!

So above you see a picture with 3 months difference, almost to the day. And guess what else?? There is a 22lb loss there! I realize the one on the right is a little more close up, but there is a definite difference in my neck and stuff. But the main difference I see is that the girl on the right is HAPPY. I am in a happy place. I am happy with me, life, family, etc. I am feeling better. I am working hard getting the weight off.. I am focused, and overall I feel great! So there you guys have it… An updated picture for ya. Can't wait to share in another three months!

It's funny what we are sharing today.  Big Sis is discussing how she doesn't want to get back to her wedding self ever again, and just last night I told my husband, "I am going to look as good as when we got married one day!"

I remember in 2009 at my lingerie shower how I felt.  I had my party, then I had an after party with my closest friends! I tried on some of my fun lingerie for them as we sipped Pina Coladas, it was a fun special night for me.  I remember that night realizing how good I looked, and how good I felt. I am excited to feel that way again! Really, I am just excited to fit comfortably in all my clothes again!

And today I am one step closer! Feeling good about seeing these pounds drop off and staying in those 150's!!
