Who doesn’t want to look and feel their best at their wedding?
Hey look! It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s one of those things that makes so much sense and is so easy to say but isn’t easily done!
Even in the face of some serious and some trivial pressures, I’ve managed to fa la la la la fail in this area so far. Where some brides might feel like they need to lose five pounds because they’re getting married and that’s what good brides do, I need to lose closer to ten times that because I’m honestly at an unbelievably unhealthy weight. Am I dying a little inside as I share this? Yup, but seriously, catch a side profile—it’s not like it’s a secret. I guess shout out to Mr. Raccoon for sticking with me through all of the ballooning. Sorry for the bait and switch; you’re a good guy.
Awhile back I tried SlimFast. It worked! The problem was on my end—I got really tired of having chocolate shakes for so many meals. (My inner child is still in disbelief.) After going back to regular foods, I put all that I had lost right back on. This was just the first float in my parade of only momentarily successful attempts.
So this post is really just to throw it out there. I think it’s the first thing in my life that I’ve really wanted, had genuinely good intentions about, and exhausted myself over, but still had no success at or at least a suitable substitute for. Battle: to be continued at a later date.
I wish I had some great secret to success to share with all of the five to fifty pounders and beyond, but I do not. Any readers out there have a problem that they just can’t fix at the moment? You don’t have to share if you’d prefer not to; it’s just nice hearing you’re not the only one.
