Weigh in Day and a great motivator for me

Starting weight: 291
Last time I weighed in (12/14/12) : 258.6
Today: 259.4

Just a little up.. but still in the same place. I got a fill right before I left for my Christmas vacation, and I felt like that fill was pretty good. I definitely felt the stop signal. It was great. I think it has loosened it's grip just a tad, but I feel full for the appropriate amount of time on the food size I eat, so onwards to getting back to exercising. I think the fact I pretty much maintained is great, but had I exercised.. I probably would have done a lot better.

So, I have the ultimate, tangible motivation now. If you didn't read my last post, I got engaged. :) The funny thing is, I was "just browsing" wedding dresses online, because I had no idea what I would even like. Funny though, I found one I really liked, showed it to my mom, and she bought it right then and there. It is returnable, so I figured this would be the best way, since there are no bridal shops in Juneau. Well, my package arrived yesterday (which happened to be my birthday. woohoo for packages on my birthday!), I opened it, and there it was. My wedding dress. It was just like the picture, only I ordered it in a size 16, and I am currently in between 18-20 right now, but I skyped my family and tried it on. I could get it over my butt and sort of up. Enough to see the shape on my body. It is perfect. We all love it! What a find. for $350 bucks.. it is amazing. But of course, I can't fit into it fully. We plan to get married April of next year, so I have a year and 4 months to reach that goal, and hopefully exceed it so I need it taken in. :) It is risky, but it is a huge motivation. Anytime I get side tracked.. I know I can look in my closet, and keep going for my goal.
Call me crazy, but I love it!
