In January I was asked to be a Bridesmaid at my friends wedding that will be held on November 8th 2008. And of course I said yes. So we went to try on some bridesmaid dresses and as you will see in my before photo’s I looked hideous. I was 305 pounds.
That moment opened my eyes to how fat I really was. I vowed that I was going to lose 100 pounds by the time of her wedding. so that is when I started my weightloss journey. I first tried the everything in moderation. I tried that for about 3 months. I have also joined the gym but only went there a few times because of some injuries have prevented me from going.
I was not losing fast enough, by March I have only lost about 10 pounds, so then around the middle of March I have decided to go on the controversial Atkins plan, Low carb no sugar. That is when the pounds really started coming off fast, about 10-15 pounds a month.
As of July 25th 2008 I have lost 53 pounds. Last weekend I went to try on bridesmaids dresses again and too my suprise I lost 4 dress sizes and the photo’s of me looked so much better. My clothes are getting very big on me. I have to wear a belt on my pants to keep them up.
The best part about losing this much weight is that people are starting to notice. I never get tired of hearing how good I am looking. The dress that I tried on the other day was a size 22 but I have decided that I am going to order a size 18 because I know that I will be able to fit in that size by the time the wedding gets here.
I am also hoping to have to have it taken in some more before the wedding. I still vow to be successful in my 100 pound loss by the time the wedding day is here. So If you would like to follow my story and see my success get even better then stay tuned 🙂
