Okay. I have to say, it is utterly terrifying to put these pictures out there on the interwebs (even headless!), but I wanted to show other Bees that this can be done! I wrote a post in January, after I had purchased my wedding gown (the sample) in a few sizes smaller than my current weight. Since then, I have dropped 30 pounds – with about 30 left to go, but the before and afters are pretty impressive (if I do say so myself!) For reference, I’m 5’11”.
This is all diet and exersize – ~1500-1600 calories per day, 4-5 workouts a week. Nothing crazy, nothing dramatic, just diligence and hard work. I am absolutely work in progress, but I’m proud of what I’ve achieved so far.
Everyone scoffs when you say you are going to lose weight for your wedding- they say the stress will derail you- but I’m here to say that if you put your mind to it, you can absolutely achieve your goals. I am 5 months from my big day, and feeling awesome about my progress. You can too!

You look amazing!!! Congrats! That’s funny that people say that…I found the stress from the wedding made me workout HARDER (I started early enough before my wedding that by the time things got at all stressful, I was into working out so much it was a great stress reliever and I looked forward to it after a hard day)
