This year for Halloween I was thinking of wearing my Wedding Dress and being a Zombie Bride, might as well put it to good use, don't you think?
It's been hanging in the closet for the past 13years waiting for the special occasion to be worn again AND was it is perfectly wrinkled, dirty and never dry-cleaned.
August 9th, 1997 ... I remember clearly that size 12 dress was super snug on me, especially in the chest and tummy area.
13 years later here I am ...
Can you see how much space I have in the chest area?? WOW ... really?
I really didn't think my arms were that much bigger before.
I mean there was NO room before, it was tight!
It even sags in the back! There was clearly no sagging before!
I barely ate anything a week before the wedding because I was so worried it was not going to fit.
To think that this was not even my heaviest... I can't even tell you in words how that makes me feel.
I am so happy that I decided to turn things around and take on a healthier lifestyle, not just for myself but for my Children.
Today I am a much happier and confident person.
Taking up Running this year has made just such a big impact in my life and I'm just so glad that I decided to take up that challenge ... even if I'm not a RUNNER yet, but I will get there.
I will run that Marathon!!
Thanks Marie for encouraging me to post these pictures! You need to check out Marie's post on her prom dress, talk about putting things in perspective!
