So, I just tried on my wedding dress for the first time in a couple of months. I’ve always tried it on with spanx. It fit comfortably that way, and I felt more self-confident knowing that the extra support was there. Well tonight I didn’t want to go through the hastle of putting the spanx on & I decided I would try my dress without them. I was mentally prepared for my dress to look not as good or polished on me.
I put it on (even zipped it up with no trouble by myself!) & I was in shock!! Apparently I have lost a few pounds! It had trouble staying up! I was super excited…So I yelled down the stairs to my dad. It was something like “DADDY!!! I’m wearing my dress without spanx & it looks and feels even better than used to!!!!” All I got back was “Well that’s a good thing, right?” ….um, yes dad, it’s a VERY good thing to me. He just doesn’t get what a major deal this is to me! bless him…
I know this is so small, but it really boosted my self-confidence. So I need someone to celebrate with. And some encouragement for me to keep it up. I want to walk down the isle spanx free!

Go you! That’s awesome! You’re seeing results and that’s great motivation to keep it up. *does a happy dance with you*
PS – Does your dad know what Spanx are/do? Funniest Jimmy Fallon was when guys had to put them on and take them off as fast as they could for a race…very hilarious. Maybe then he’ll share your enthusiasm 🙂
