Weigh-In #1: What I have gained

Well, I gained one pound for my first week of blogging through my weight loss. I am totally OK with it though. I am honestly relieved I didn't gain more. I know exactly what I did wrong. I'm working on changing it, and hopefully a week from today I will lose that pound (and more!).

Today I kept thinking about the goals of mine and this thing in my mind of having a goal outfit or something. I mean I seriously have bins of clothes that I would love to fit into someday. I have goal outfits - lots of them. But in early May my husband and I are going to go out to dinner for our anniversary. We don't go out to dinner much at all. We don't go out with our girls because it's too hectic. The last time we went out for dinner (just the two of us) was for my 30th birthday and I will be 33 in April - so I think we're due. I am really excited about this! I am hoping my hubby will be up for getting "dressed up" at least a little - he doesn't have to wear a suit, but a nice dress shirt would be good. I  am going to go through my closet and pick out one of my dresses that I would like wear on that date.  I am going to hang it up in a good spot so I can see it every day - that kinda stuff motivates me. I have (slightly more than) three months to get into something.

Last night I mentioned the whole wedding dress thing to my husband and he disagreed with me - he thinks our oldest would be shocked to see me in my dress. I'm going to try for it. Either she will think I look like a princess or she will have no reaction - but I want to see which one it is, and you know what, I will!! 


  1. My husband and I have always tried to have date nights. It's so hard with kids though! Our anniversary is coming up in March and I'm excited for a weekend away!

    My goal isn't to get into my wedding dress (not a traditional dress...we got married in Vegas and I just wore a really nice formal dress), my goal? My prom dress from my senior hear of high school!!

  2. That's really cool, Kelly! I threw my prom dress out because I didn't like the way it looked on me. I was heavy in high school too. I actually weighed less when I got married than I did in high school. I wanted to go to my 10 year reunion and look great but I had my first daughter six months earlier and I still had that baby weight on me. So that idea of mine was out the window - not that it mattered because my reunion was an absolute joke!
