Good news! Operation Fit Into Wedding Dress has been accomplished! Hooray!
It’s funny because I had been putting off doing an update post because the numbers hadn’t been what I’d hoped they’d be. As of this morning I had lost 4 pounds after 5 weeks of counting points. Granted, I’d had several events where I was not counting points (graduation, grad party, bridal shower, etc.) but in general I felt like 4 pounds didn’t sound like very much for how much work I felt like I was doing.
It just goes to show that the number on the scale isn’t always the most important thing. Today my mom and I went to my dress fitting, and not only did it fit, but it had to be taken in! I was pretty excited.
As far as the 30 Day Shred goes, I’ve kinda spotty about doing it, but I do think it has made a big difference. I didn’t like doing it every day, so lately I have been alternating doing the shred with running, which I like much better.
I’m still planning on counting points and working out, but at this point I can’t lose more than 5 lbs or the dress likely won’t fit. That’s okay, I’ve lost just shy of 10 lbs since January and my dress fits. Sounds great to me!
