One of my best friends from college, Tara, got married a few weeks ago in Cincinnati. I drove up for the wedding and had a blast! It was so much fun to see Tara (I helped her get ready for her first day with her now husband Zac). I wore a new Vineyard Vines dress that I had just purchased and got so many compliments! It felt so good to have people notice my weight loss and to tell me that I looked good. Here I am with the beautiful bride:
And just for comparison, here's a picture of me with my sister at a wedding 4+ years ago. I was going through a "brunette" phase so my hair is darker and shorter, but look at my face! Yikes.
Glad I am finally in a good place and feeling healthy. I just went through my closet a week ago and the dress that I'm wearing above (which was too small then, why I'm wearing a sweater over it) was SWIMMING on me!! Hope somebody can use it at Goodwill because it is gone from my closet! And I'm glad that people are noticing my transformation. Thanks for the encouragement!!
