|The dreaded numbers|
I obviously found the results of my unofficial poll depressing. But they also definitely reflected a reality I am oh so familiar with. I am of the opinion that everyone is different. Every body is different. And beauty is something different to different people. I hate the unrealistic standards women hold themselves to. And I hate the "ideal body" stigma perpetuated by the media. Have I fallen prey to these things anyways? ABSOLUTELY!! I wish I could say otherwise...but...
The moral of this long winded story though is; I don't want to be a part of that world. So after careful consideration I will not be giving you my actual number. I will tell you that during the last 4 weeks I have lost 6 lbs and 1 inch all over. I have toned up and improved my stamina. So if I am being truthful (*kind of the point of Stay Truthful Thursdays*) I would say operation Goal Dress is a SUCCESS! YEAH! And when I put the dress on tonight to admire all my hard work...it was actually TOO BIG! WHAT?! And...OH NO! The wedding is tomorrow and out of town, so i think double-sided tape and safety pins will be required! UGH! This conundrum is still a work in progress...
I will post pics of the final product and wedding Sunday!
Thanks for taking this journey with me! All you messages, comments, and tweets have really helped keep me focused and inspired! I couldn't have done it without you guys!
Love your Favourite Darwinian Fail,
