My journey to better health will never stop. It's a lifestyle that needs daily monitoring and discipline. I'm not going to lie. It's VERY hard. Specially now the weather is cool, I just want to stay in bed and read books or watch TV the whole day. But when I see how far I've come, I force myself to get up and sweat. I always, always feel so much better after.
Here are some progress pics that I want to share with you.
I found this dress (in red) on a mannequin and I said to myself, if I look good in it, in the same size as the mannequin is wearing, I'm going to go and buy it. What do you know? It fit perfectly on top. The dress is a bit long but, I think I can live with that. I was tempted to buy the red one too but, the blue one looks better on me. I can't wait to wear it on a date with Hubby. I almost always never fit to a size worn by a mannequin so, this one's a biggie for me. I felt beautiful when I wore this dress.
The photo on the right was taken this morning. I still have a long way to go before I will feel confident enough to wear a bikini in public. My belly is still a problem area and the progress is very s-l-o-w. But, progress is progress, right? I'm 5 feet tall, and my goal is to reach my college weight of 100lbs in a manner that will not kill or starve me. Ha ha ha :-)
My happiest achievement to date is my wedding gown. It finally fits me again, fully zipped and I could breathe while wearing it. In fact, the waist is a bit loose :-) I have not been able to fully zip it for 12 long years. I really felt happy that I could fit into it properly and comfortably!
I decided to give my fat clothes away because I never want to fit in them ever again! So help me God! (pretty please?)
