Pretty Proud Of Myself!

11 1/2 years ago I looked like this...
 
 
Almost 7 years ago I looked like this...

 
Now, 2 kids later and 60 pounds lighter, I look like this...


I've been contemplating trying my wedding dress on after almost 12 years to see if it would fit again, but I was a nervous wreck actually doing it yesterday. Please pardon the messy hair; I had been in the pool all morning and during Anderson's nap I finally worked up my courage to pull my dress out of my parents closet yesterday. I just had to know if it fit again. And it did! Perfectly! It was even a bit loose in the sides of the dress. I've worked my fanny off, literally, to fit back into my wedding dress and I'm so happy that I'm back to my wedding weight. I only gained 20 pounds when I was pregnant with Jackson, but I had apparently gotten very comfortable with married life prior to getting pregnant with J, and I pretty much let myself go. I have pictures of myself during this time frame that I wish I could burn. As of a few weeks ago, I've lost 60 pounds from my highest weight at 9 months pregnant with Jackson. It's taken lots of kids meals instead of combo meals, turkey meat instead of ground beef, water instead of coke, exercise and good old fashioned deprivation to reach this goal, and I'm stoked that I got it done. I would still like to lose another 20 pounds, to be back to my high school weight, but I'm not going to stress about that. I'm just happy with what I've done so far!

Next goal: Actually weighing what my drivers license says I weigh!

You look great in all your ages/stages/weights, but of course, I'm so happy for you that you've taken off some weight from the health perspective. You go girl! Ya look great! : )
