Chasing my fit: Snowed in


While snowed in...what did I do?  Tried on old goals.  This dress was given to me by a friend for ball, but Hannah decided to come into our lives SO the last Marine Corps Ball was out for me.  I was not able to fit in my dresses and honestly at 6 weeks postpartum, I did not want to get all dressed up!  I'm happy to say finally fits!!!  Happy happy happy dance!  The first picture was when I brought the dress back home in January 2013 and the second picture is 18 weeks postpartum!  YAY!

Here goes now…

Highest weigh-in to date: 243.5 lbs on 3/11/2008  (The day I went in to labor with Aiden. Not sure if I had been higher. I do remember wearing 18/20 mostly & being sized at a 22 for a bridesmaids dress.)

Weight as of today: 159.3 lbs

Total loss: 80.6 lbs

Body Fat %: 32% (Only re-doing every 15th when I take new measurements)

BMI: 25.7

Weight goal: 134 lbs (last seen in high school)
