This is my inspiration dress! I'm going to have one custom made for me in white! I know they'll make it in my size, but how awesome would that be to have a waist that is closer to 30" than 40"???
I tend to dress pretty flattering (as we all should) so although you can tell I need to lose a few pounds, you can't tell really how big I am!

But then I step on a scale and I go YIKES! I definitely need to lose more than a few pounds. Most of you know I don't lose pounds easily and my weight is pretty high for my height (5'2) and measurements... so my weight-loss goal has nothing to do with weight and everything to do with inches.
My starting measurements as of December 31st, 2010 are:
Hips- 44 1/2
Waist- 37 1/2
Arms- 14 1/4
Thighs- 25 1/4
Weight- somewhere around 180ish
My goal is to lose 6" on my waist and hips in 6 months... I'd love to lose 6" on each, but even a combined 6" would be amazing!
Now you can see where I really need to lose! Flattering clothes hide a lot, but when it comes down to it, I really need to lose a lot of inches and firm up! I'm worried not only about the wedding, but the honeymoon! DOUBLE YIKES!
I'm blessed to gain and lose weight pretty evenly. I don't know that I have one trouble area, it's kind of an all over weight issues. When I gain, I gain everywhere, my legs, arms, tummy, etc all gain weight evenly, which is nice because I'm proportionate, but frustrating because that means my arms are too big for a lot of shirts and my calves are too big for all those awesome boots I keep trying on. I find myself lucky to not have big belly rolls, but I do have back rolls! Icky!
I bought a new exercise video over the weekend. I'll be trying it out tonight... even though I know I won't want to after working all day and then running errands. I ate a good breakfast of 2 scrambled eggs on one slice of 100% whole wheat toast sprinkled with a bit of cheddar cheese and 16oz of water. I was off to a good start, but realized I forgot to pack a lunch. Dang it! I don't want to wait until tonight to eat so I'll have to grab a bite somewhere... It's hard to make good choices while eating out; even salads are loaded with unhealthiness. Wish me luck!
