Big sigh of relief over here

While at the seamstress today, I went ahead and tried my dress on again. I wanted to see how much further I had to go to fit into it. When I bought it, there was a gap of about 2.5 inches keeping it from closing. The last time I tried it on in late July, there was a gap of about two inches. Today.........drum roll please............................half an inch. Whoo-hoo!

I've been watching my calories, using the rowing machine and lifting free weights. In the last couple of weeks, my weight loss has slowed down and I was getting really nervous. I think I must have been putting on muscle though because today the dress was that much closer to fitting. In fact, the seamstress said that if need be, she really could have zipped it up and we're close enough that she could sneak in a small panel to make it fit without binding me.

I know I've said this before but don't ever buy a dress that's too small if you don't have to. If you're in that situation, you can do it. It hasn't been easy but it can be done. Now you'll have to excuse me. Krispy Kreme has the hot doughnut sign up and it's calling my name.

I loved this line: "Krispy Kreme has the hot doughnut sign up and it's calling my name". I'm trying to lose weight as well for my wedding and I've had a few moments where I couldn't resist the temptation!

I think something that has really helped me is Jelly Belly jelly beans. 4 calories for each one. My fiance hides them from me and doles them out to me when a sugar craving hits.
