SKINNY BRIDE!!

So many of you have been asking alll about the wedding and photos so I thought I'd share some updated ones from our wedding & honeymoon! We have to wait a while to get our professional wedding ones back but I'll be sharing those when we finally get them :)


I honestly have to say I felt absolutely beautiful on my wedding day.  I wasn't worried about whether or not I was going to look fat in photos- if my dress looked ok- if I had a double chin- if I could suck it in enough etc. etc. I felt wonderful.  We had our engagement photos done in Oct. 2011 and when our photographer saw me again on my wedding day she actually said she almost didn't recognize me because I had lost so much weight since she last saw me. :)
I was also SO worried about whether or not I'd fit into my dress.. I got my dress in Feb.  2011 and be the end of last year I couldn't fit into it. at all.  It was a sickening feeling. I put off my dress fittings because I didn't want to deal with the fact I couldn't fit into it and I didn't want to be upset and disappointed.. well, I finally went into get my dress sized in August- about 1 month before our wedding annnnnd I HAD TO HAVE MY DRESS TAKEN IN!!!! Working out at times SUCKED and it was hard and there were times I wanted to quit but having a dress that's TOO BIG and not worrying about how I looked in my photos WAS WORTH IT. 

I also realized not only do I have a wedding to look good for but we'd be on a beach for our honeymoon so I had to look good for that too.. well I wore a bikini on our honeymoon! Now, I maayyy have been jumping the gun on that one but I didn't care.  I've worked my ass off (literally) and I'm proud of the work I've done and besides, my hubby loves me no matter what so he loved my bikini bod ;)

Here's pics of us on our honeymoon:

I haven't been able to fit into that dress for a year!

I really thought after the wedding was over I wouldn't care if I was fat or not- that I would finally be able to stop working out and watching what I eat but I just can't.  I want to keep working at it.  I never want to get back to that point where I hated looking at myself, hated taking photos because I looked fat in them all, didn't want to go out because I just didn't wanna get dressed and be seen. I've worked too hard and come too far to just stop.  It's really been a life change and I love the way I feel!

I'll continue to post updates, recipes and workout tips now that I have actual free time since I'm not wedding planning :)

xoxo

  3. Love your blog! Thanks so much for sharing. I recently have gained about 40 lbs. since my wedding and seeing all your photos is a great motivator! Question: How long did you spend working out every day and about how many calories did you eat?

    1. Thanks! I'd say I worked out everyday at least an hour- and that was sometimes riding my bike to work which was about an hour or swimming for an hour or even going for an hour walk. I ate 5 smaller meals a day- breakfast, a snack, lunch, a snack, and dinner for probably about 1,000 calories a day!
