I have struggled with my weight my whole life. 3 years ago i weighed 250 pounds, I managed to loose 80 pounds and have stayed at that weight the past year… about 8 months ago I popped into a Bridal shop not thinking id find anything but I fell in love with the first dress I put on! The only size they had was the sample size 8 which wouldnt even budge i had to pretend it fit. I would have needed a 12 or 14 at this point. I wanted the dress soooo bad but I told the ladies at the shop hey, give me 2 months and ill be back-ill go ahead and lock in the price but I dont want to order it yet. I came back, put the sample back on and it fit me like a glove except for the exception of the panel needed to be moved a little. Since then I have lost an additional 20 pounds totalling 100 pounds lost for me in the past 3 years. I am so happy to have gone from a size 20 (maybe more cuz i started wearing MATERNITY) in jeans to my dream wedding dress is an 8!!!! I have the Karena Royale btw 🙂 My final before pic was taken last night at my wedding shower!

Congrats! That’s awesome.
I really, really want to cut my hair shorter so I’m bribing myself to finish off the final ten pounds to get the haircut reward.
I love the karena royale, do you have a pic of you wearing it? You look great! P.s. I’m curious how tall you are?

Im not going to lie, when you are overweight your whole life and have bad self esteem it is HARD to be satisfied (for me it is anyways!) I would love to lose 10 more pounds since I plan on trying for a baby as soon as the wedding is over 🙂 I did it with DETERMINATION! I started a new job and realized i was too big to fit in a bathroom stall comfortably and that was the beginning for me. It crushed me! After that I was determined, I ate tons of chicken, vegetables, and wheat EVERYTHING. By the time i was 190 pounds I could run 6 miles every day! I am glad to be an inspiration. THat is another way I got so determined I looked at success stories and watched the Biggest Loser and knew that if they could do it so could i. 🙂

I have done so much research on healthy eating and weight losss the healthy way that I could probably be a nutritionist without training! lol its kind of ridiculous but if someone asked me how many calories was in ANYTHING I could probably guess within ten calories. I also used the MYFITNESSPAL app on my phone. its great! 1200 calories a day. just gotta burn more than u consume! 🙂
