It's a White Wedding

Okay, I couldn't wait. I woke up this morning at 186.6, 2.6 lbs (and many inches) away from my wedding weight. After the husband and 2 kids drove off into yet another snow storm, I decided I was going to see if my wedding dress actually could be zipped up all the way. It hasn't been able to be since we got home from the honeymoon. In the 6 months between getting married and conceiving our daughter, I gained 22 lbs. I haven't seen the 180s since we got married - I don't think I weighed myself when we got home from our honeymoon, but I would not be surprised if I gained more than 6 lbs in those 2 weeks.

So here I am today - no makeup, rolled-out-of bed look

Here I am on one of the best days of my life. Even though I wasn't the weight I wanted to be, I truely felt like a princess for the first time in my life.

We got married in Stowe, Vermont where the Von Trapp's (of the Sound of Music) have a hotel, so I decided to twirl and sing 'The Hills are Alive...'
