This wedding prep check in is a bit different. I did things a little differently… I took my pictures on a beach… after one glass of tequila, a bowl of oatmeal, a quest bar, and Jimmy John’s unwhich with all the mayo. Why did I do this?
Because I wanted remind you guys, I’m still living. I have sacrificed all the things I love about life to lose weight before and I will NEVER do that again. I won’t stop living MY KIND OF LIFE to lose weight. (Yours could be much different and sacrificing everything may be okay for you, but for me, no thanks).
That being said, of course I “sacrifice” some things– i.e. I drink tequila waters with mio instead of margarita mix, I have an unwhich instead of a sub at jimmy john’s, I don’t drink on most week nights, I don’t eat the 45 servings of my mom’s corn casserole that I want to eat, I eat a serving.
But my friends, that is not sacrifice, that is balance. That is moderation.
So here is my Wedding Prep Update for week 4-
How I’m Feeling:
Pretty good! I decreased my macros last week so I have been a bit hungry, but not terribly. I love my physique right now and I tried on my wedding dress (that mind you was altered to fit me back in September 2016) and IT FITS LIKE A GLOVE. It’s absolutely perfect! It makes me kind of nervous about progressing much further, but I am going to take it slow and keep trying on the dress. I may just have to maintain where I am because your girl is not about to pay another $700 to get my dress altered again.
Feeling all KINDS of lean! Arms, abs (again not as prominent because these were taken after quite a bit of food and drink), BACK – hello!! I’m overall just stoked with my appearance. Also— who loves the tag sticking out. Grr.
