Hello blogging world! My new left-hand accessory and I are honored to be here. &What exactly are we here to do? Well hopefully to lose, lose in a BIG way. Why might you ask?
Because I’m engaged!
Gosh it’s so nice to finally be able to say that <<out loud>>. I’d only dated my big Greek gyro for five and a half years, with the ever so often reoccurring dream of myself as a casual forever spinster.
The good news is, these bedtime moments are gone, well at least the single for life ones are. Now they’ve become a bit more scale-centric, such as Vera Wang telling me she doesn’t have enough material to cover my size.
It’s amazing that I’ve been waiting my whole entire existence for this one moment, and now that its here, I’m kicking myself for not being “prepared”.
Most of my life I’ve been a fairly “average” size … always a bit of a yo-yo-er but not ever to the point of “I can’t fit into my friends’ clothing”. Circa my 2012 college graduation however, my body decided to throw me for a loop and balloon itself up 50lbs.
I wish I was joking.
I have since had to step back, re-focus, and put myself in my own eating and drinking category, which means, no longer mirroring my 115lb friends who can eat (and likely lose weight from eating) cheeseburgers for lunch followed by two casual cocktails and some curly fries … dipped in ranch of course.
Is it bad that my stomach just rumbled?
I think every girl fantasizes about looking and feeling as close to perfect as possible for her wedding day (which is truly your most photographed day). These are supposed to be our “prime” years after all!
I hate when people say that.
So, that’s why I’m here. I want to take you along my journey from proposal to alter because I know if I can lose the weight, I will be at my best, before I say I DO!
This is going to be one rollercoaster of a bride ride, so hold on tight! It means the world that you’ll be right here with me along the way.
Much more soon!
