The Wedding!

If you haven't entered my giveaway click here. You won't want to miss this one.


The wedding was wonderful this weekend. I had such a great time visiting with all of my family.

The best part of the whole weekend was that I received more complements then I have in my entire life. It is funny how I have been losing weight for seven months and now all of the sudden everyone started to notice. I'm not complaining. It was hard to go so long without many people noticing (or maybe just not saying anything) but it was well worth the wait.

Everyone was telling me how great I looked. I am so not used to that kind of attention. I even had a guy hit on me. My husband wasn't thrilled about that but I got a little kick out of it.

Here are some pictures from the wedding.

I did really good with my eating all weekend except for on the ride home. I was so bored, tired and ready to be home that I ate some ritz bits with cheese and something else that wasn't healthy but I can't think of it right now. The meal at the wedding was wonderful. We had 1/2 of a rotisserie chicken, some kind of smashed potatoes and fancy green beans. I only ate the chicken and of course two wonderful (huge) rolls with a really sweet tasting butter. I figured I burnt enough calories dancing and chasing kids away that it didn't matter.

In case you are wondering about the no carb/low carb diet I was officially off of it before the wedding. It was just a 6 day thing to cleanse my body. Now I am aloud to eat carbs just not after 3pm. I really need to start following that more strictly. I guess your body doesn't have enough time to burn the fat if you eat it after 3pm. Unfortunately I am so used to having carbs with my dinner (ex. tacos, hot dogs, chicken bbq sand., hot turkey sausage sand., baked potatoes) . I guess I am going to have to come up with a new plan. It is harder than it sounds.

I am still seeing my trainer. She is awesome. I am really noticing a difference in my body. I am even starting to get muscles (even in my stomach) it is really cool. She is off the rest of this week so I am doing the training on my own at the gym. I am trying to do it by memory. I think it is going well. It is definitely harder to do without the trainer because I don't have anyone to talk to while I am doing it. :)
