Success. Sweet success. As of Monday afternoon the dress was on and zipped. Fit like OJ Simpson’s glove…
I cannot tell a lie, however, and must confess. I took the dress in to a Miracle Worker who looked it over and told me, with little hope in her voice, “I can let it out. Maybe an inch.” I said, “Do it. Whatever it takes.”
Even though I knew it was going to be altered I also knew it was going to be close, tight. I spent the last 8 days being very aware of my food choices, other than Monday night’s sushi date with J-Ninja. With just 8 days of cutting sugar and eating more veggies, and added workouts, I was able to drop 3 pounds, which I believe is a healthy amount of weight loss for 8 days. In the end, the lesson learned here is that I need to make better choices, not just two weeks before putting on a fancy dress, but always. Every day. Making the right food choices is hard, but worth it. I am finding that intrinsic desire to be healthy holistically. In other words, I am finding the motivation within myself-not from outside sources, to be healthy mentally, physically, and emotionally.
Today LB and I hopped a jet outa the South and into the Pacific Northwest for my Official Race Crew's wedding. We arrived just a little bit ago....so I'm going to cut this one short and call it a night.
