Back in February, I asked a very important question:
“Will I ever be able to button this jacket?”
The jacket, a saucy little Theory blazer purchased optimistically in my pre-baby size, was to be my proxy for the wedding gown–which was still being made–as I attempted to drop a few inches and lb’s.
I committed to showing you an “after” picture wearing the jacket, which I figured would help motivate me. Plus, I couldn’t very well show you my dress before the wedding. It’s bad luck!
So, for the past four months I’ve been working it: Weight Watchers, the trainer, walking dates with a long-legged friend, and a lot of hot tea and chewing gum.
And now, as promised, here I am 4 months later (and 1 month before my wedding), wearing the jacket…
Hardest thing about losing the weight: Children’s birthday parties.
Coolest thing about losing it: New clothes! As in, the old ones in my closet. Some of them actually fit again!
Funniest thing about losing it: Watching Dave try to express his admiration without sounding like a jerk (“You look better–I mean good–you look good!”)
Now I just have to stay strong until the wedding cake, which I will dive into face first.
Thanks for keeping me honest, blogosphere. You’re better than Atkins.
