Default 8 Weeks in !!!!drum roll.................

So it's been 8 weeks since I began my transformation. I had my FIRST..that's right FIRST weigh in on monday. I have lost 12.6 pounds since August. The number may be small but I'm averaging around 1.5 pounds a week and that's fine with me as long as I am adding lean muscle, which I am. The exciting part is my measurements. My previous measurements were 44-39-47. My new Measurements......42-3344. I lost 6 inches off my waist!!!

Not only that, but I returned to the dreaded bridal shop to order my bridesmaid dress. The previous size they wanted me to order was a 24/26. They ordered a 14 for me and really wanted me to order a 12! The best part about this...besides loosing the weight was the fact that while at the bridal shop, I was able to try on the dress we ordered. I wasn't able to get the dress over my hips 8 weeks ago!

And as if that wasn't enough....I made my first bridal appointment to begin looking for a bridal gown! OMG...so excited!

So I know...I have a lot of weight to loose and I know it will take me several months to get to where I want to be...but I am on my way! Look out Ladies...there's a Diva on the loose!
