    @joya_aspera:  That’s awesome! Good luck with achieving your goals 🙂

    I never thought I’d participate in the “bridal shed” most women tend to put themselves through before their wedding. And then I found myself engaged last October at 205 lbs (on my 5″5′ self). I knew, in general, that I wanted to lose weight to get back down to where I feel most comfortable, which is around 160 lbs, and the wedding gave me a goal to work towards. I’d never really lost a substantial amount of weight when I had tried previously, so I wasn’t sure if it’d work but decided I’d try anyways.

    In January, Fiance and I decided to go paleo/primal and see if it could work for us. Lo and behold, we are now almost 3 months in, and I have lost about 20 lbs and am working on changing my body composition. I’m stronger and happier and much healthier than I was last October. I’m excited about the changes, but only a little sad that the wedding was my motivator. I wish I’d always worked hard at being healthy, though now I can say I definitely will continue to work at it even after the wedding later this year.

    Here is to hoping I need to have my dress taken in!
