Hi everyone! How are you?
As most of you know, I joined Weightwatchers at the end of March/early April and have been on an absolute mission to lose weight.
My main reason is to feel comfortable in my own skin and regain my lost confidence. This is the main one that I have been pushing on this blog.
My secondary reason was for a wedding.
I have known Lynz since university, which for me was almost 13 years ago….. yeah, I feel old. And one thing that Lynz has been consistent on is that she will never get married.
Well, guess who changed her mind?
And guess who was chief bridesmaid?
I wanted to look nice in Lynz’s wedding photos, and I tried on my bridesmaid dress for the first time just before starting Weightwatchers. And seeing how big I looked in that dress (as beautiful as I felt), I knew something had to change. Seeing myself in that pink dress was my lightbulb moment to push me into losing weight.
I set myself a goal of losing 20lb before that wedding.
Well the wedding was on the 28th September, and not only did I lose 20lb, I lost 25lb!
Honestly the best feeling in the world (prior to seeing my best friend get married to her soulmate) was being told by the taylor that my dress needed taking in 3 sizes!
I felt awesome, and it felt even better walking down the aisle, looking glamorous in that dress.
I was forbidden from putting any photos of the wedding on until a few weeks afterwards, so my 6month update feels like a 7 month one, but I am so thrilled with how well that I have done in just a few short months.
Here’s to the next 6 months!
Have a lovely day guys, and take care!
