My Fat Butt

Well, it's been a while since I've done an update, hasn't it?

In my last update, I told you how I was below my pre-pregnancy weight. The weight loss has slowed, as expected, but I am happy to report that I am now at my next milestone, my wedding weight.

That... is exciting. To me, at least.

Part of me is totally tempted to rip into the storage preservation box and try on my wedding dress. But the larger part of me knows that it won't fit. I may weigh the same, but my shape is definitely different.

I've told you before about the extra skin I have around my belly from my pregnancy. It's still there. Probably will be unless until I have it surgically removed.

I'm also fairly certain that my breasts are bigger than they were when I got married. No complaints about that one.

Just that those two things mean that I am 99% sure that there's no way my wedding dress would fit.

But still. I'm at my wedding weight. A grand total of 51 lbs lost.

Mostly I've settled in to just watching my portions. I do try to eat more fruits & veggies, but quite frankly I don't find it that pleasant, so I still need to work on that.

And while I usually drink water anyway, lately I've made an effort to cut out caffeine when I do drink other beverages. Not a weight thing, per se. Just a health thing.

One thing I've noticed is that my tastes have changed. Not sure if this is because of the chemical changes in my body brought about by the drug therapy, or because of the changes I'd made to my diet, or maybe a combination of both.

Mostly, I can no longer tolerate as sweet of foods / drinks as I used to. I got a Mt. Dew a few weeks back, just because, remembering how much I used to love it, and about gagged on the sugary-ness of it. And even chocolate - I can't take too much chocolate without a glass of milk to balance out the sweetness. Oh, and cotton candy! We went to a festival and got cotton candy to share between the three of us. I needed a glass of water so badly!

In the past - and the not too distant past at that - I would have eaten the cotton candy with the Mt. Dew! Ha!

So that's about it for now. I'll keep you posted if there are any major developments or I meet another milestone.

As always, thanks for checking in!

How wonderful! You are right where I am at in the weight loss department as far as pounds go. 50 lbs. is what I needed to lose though, so I understand that we are not really at the same place. However, I will tell you this. Do not give up on the idea that your body will change and reward you with a wonderful ability to continue to shrink and get firmer even after you hit your end weight. I have been about where I plan to be long term since January and I have continued to shrink markedly.
I'm so glad I got to see your last picture before you changed it. The change is truly amazing. I still have my old license picture to act as a 'before' photo but won't have it for much longer!
