Well, heck...

My weight continues to go up. What the heck is going on? My food intake has been about the same. If anything, I wasn't eating enough points with that Taco Soup (2 or 3 points a cup --I don't remember which with a 1/2 cup of cottage cheese thrown in for fun making it 5 points per bowl) Maybe my body was reacting poorly to undereating? I wonder how quickly your body can decide to go into "starvation mode" I'm not really buying it...but I'm pretty bummed that the scale is moving in the wrong direction. =(

I'm about to get some major motivation for eating better and getting off my butt more often. Today, I think I"m going to go try on wedding dresses. We'll see if any of them fit. LoL. I'm going to try to take pics (hopefully the dress shop doesn't mind) so I can see what areas I *really* need to improve on. I guess I all ready kind of know though....I really need to hit some cardio (get rid of fat) and tone up my arms. I don't know why, but they seem to be getting flabbier as my stomach gets flatter. LoL. If the scale didn't tell me that I'd lost *some* weight --I think I'd begin to doubt it.

Off to the dress shop I go! Hopefully I'll post some pics today or tomorrow.

omg! not only did I fit in wedding dresses....I actually looked really good in some of them. The one I liked the best was $800. Jeez! I think my sister might be right. It might be time to look into renting a dress =0p

Pics! Pics! Where you able to take any pics?! I'm sure you looked wonderful!!

I bought my dress online (at a HUGE savings), my sister bought hers regular priced from a wedding shop, and my SIL rented hers. Of course I like my option best ;) But seriously, my SIL spent a pretty penny on her dress rental (more than my dress was to buy)...and they would have been similar price if purchased from a bridal shop. The difference is, hers had been worn SEVERAL times...and although it was clean etc...the hem job was butchard and the crinoline was a MESS! I'm not big on renting clothes/shoes to begin with, so that might just be my issue. And I can opt to sell my dress as could my sister. I'm not planning on it though. I hope my future daughter will love it...even if not to wear on her wedding day, but to play in it :O

Ahh...dress shopping, so fun!

Re: weight gain. Was the taco soup overly salty? Could be purely water weight...nothing else.

Hubby and I went to a dr appointment together...seems he wasnts hubby to lose a few more pounts (he's already lost several on his own :). He suggested simply (haha...nothing is "simple" when it comes to weight loss) cutting his portions by 1/3. Meaning eat 1/3 less than you normally do.

Take care!
