It was the dress I wore 7 years ago at my wedding rehearsal. Why have I kept it? To be honest, I'm not really sure. I like it, I used to love how it fit. It hasn't fit in a VERY long time but in my defense that was three children ago. My body is not even close to what it used to be. I have larger hips and soft spots, and honestly that's just getting old.
My "baby" is 20 months old now and it's time to get back into shape. I really don't have a specific weight I would like to be, I just have decided that's silly. I'm not going to kill myself for a number. I am just going to base it off of how I feel and also how my clothes fit.
The dress is going to be my guide. I'm not sure if I will ever wear it again, but I will fit into it!
Hence, Operation Fit The Dress.
I like to eat things that are crappy for me. Dr. Pepper is my best friend. Also, chocolate milk is my love language. I apparently like to drink my calories.
So my plan as of right now:
1. Cut back on drinking my calories. No more Dr. Peppers. I will have chocolate milk but in moderation. Also, adding in extra veggies.
2. Light exercise to start with. I used to do 30 day shred, but I am going to start of with walking. At least one mile a day until I build up to being able to exercise without 911 needing to be called.
3.I will try the dress on once a week. Preferably in the morning, just because that's probably when I'm at my thinnest.
4.I will NOT weigh myself. I feel like this will just set me up for failure. It's just a number nobody knows after all.
I am going to try to post updates with the fit of the dress, but I'm not going to share measurements or any other very personal info.
I will tell you the dress is a size 6. I have been a variety of sizes over the years and to be honest my favorite has been an 8/10. I felt good and I looked good. I also still had all of my curves. This is just based on my body type.
Wish me luck!
