Married, now what?

I am now married. I stopped stressing out about losing weight before the wedding. I did lose 10 lbs from the diet, but I didn’t want to put more pressure on myself than I already had and I felt good, so I went with it. I ended up losing 5 more lbs the week of the wedding and gained it back on the honeymoon. What I learned from all of this is that it doesn’t matter how much you weigh. It is more important that the dress fit you well. So, I had it taken in and I looked fantastic. I think I would have liked to have worked on my arms a bit, but even that didn’t bother me that much.

Here’s me on my wedding day. (155lbs)

Now it is a couple of months after the wedding, the holidays are over, and I am eating a lot. Too much. I have gained 8 lbs since the wedding and am feeling really down on myself. Mostly because it is “that time of the month”, but still. I perform and I have seen pictures of me that I would prefer not end up on the internet. I have a belly and that has got to change. It is enough to make me want to starve myself and not eat. I KNOW, that is the worst thing you can do. It is just who wants to cry while they eat? It is not a good look.

It is diet time and it is also sit up time.

  1. You can do it! Cooking at home with fruits and veggies and keeping physical are excellent ways to keep fit, stay healthy, and feel good!

    • Thanks Joey. My main problem is portion control and carbs. I looooove love love them. Rice, pasta, potatoes and then there’s cheese. Don’t get me started there. Carbs and cheese are like a match made in heaven. Granted, a chubby heaven.
