It’s been a while since I did a weigh in. After the D&C and the stress and lack of exercise, I gained some weight back. It seemed like it took forever to get back on track and to get that scale moving again. I was not eating as well as I should be and I was definitely not working out the way I should be. Now I am back on track and I am once again training for a half marathon. This helps keep me on track since I know I will be running 13.1 miles in just a few months. If I am not up to par then it will be much harder to run than it should be.
So let’s get back on track. Here is my weigh in and measurements as of today.
Waist (at bend) = 30” Waist (at belly button) = 35” Hips = 36” Thighs = 22.5” Arms = 13”
My goal weight is 120 pounds. This puts me at the half way mark. I am down 15 pounds and I have 15 pounds to go. Considering I was down to 127 before getting pregnant, I am not thrilled with this number but I am more determined now to get to my goal weight.
My added determination also comes from the fact that I will be wearing a wedding dress in a mere 9 months. I have started looking around but refuse to buy anything until I am closer to my goal weight. Like any other bride I want to look my best on that day. My frustration is with the fact that I don’t think wedding dresses are made for woman that are short. My awesome 5’2” compactness does not match any of the measurements for wedding dresses. I mean seriously where do I fit into these measurements?
I wear a size 8 in jeans and I fit in between a 10 and 12 for a wedding dress? Wouldn’t you think wedding dresses would be smaller in sizes since this is the day woman want to look their best and feel the skinniest? Who came up with wedding dressing being smaller than regular clothes? That is just crazy. Talk about making woman just feel fat and huge in a dress that is 2 sizes bigger than they normally wear. If they want to make woman feel great on their wedding day they should have negative numbers. LOL “My wedding dress size is a -2”. LMAO Now that would be awesome.
Okay so back to reality. I need to get closer to my goal weight and more toned before ordering one of these bad boys. Then I will have to take 6 inches off the bottom of it to fit my long legs. LOL
