I was in my closet this afternoon and the dress wore at our rehearsal dinner was hanging in the back. It caught my eye and I thought, why not? I’ll try it on. To my surprise, it fit! It wasn’t as loose as it was in 2007, but still, it fit!
That got me thinking, and I realized, I’m only about 25-30 pounds away from where I was when we got married almost 6 years ago! I can’t believe I hadn’t thought about it until now!
By October, (our anniversary month) I could, and really should be to that weight or even lower!
It seemed like such a huge task when I started in October of this year. When I was thinking about what my goal weight was going to be, I thought there was no way I was going to be able to lose 110 pounds (my goal weight is 150 and I started at 162). At my lightest I weighed in in the 140’s, but that was before I had 2 children and that was 8-9 years ago. I didn’t have any faith in myself that I would or could get back there again. Now with 48 pounds gone, it doesn’t seem so impossible. In fact it seems to be just within reach. My overall goal weight is less than 65 pounds away!
Since October I have lost more than 48 pounds and just in the last 3 weeks I’ve lost more than 7! With that said, I’m more than confident I will be pre-marriage weight by our 6th anniversary and that makes me more excited than words could ever say!
