The Good and the Bad

I guess I will start with the bad....Im up .8 from where I was last week. But I know why...too much food and alcohol over the weekend. Thursday I ate on plan at the rehearsal dinner, but Friday involved a lot of alcohol at the wedding, and dinner was steak which always sticks around for a while. Saturday my boyfriend and I woke up and went to our favorite breakfast place for a "hangover breakfast", which means lots of carbs!

So needless to say, I know why I am up, and for all I ate, .8 isnt so bad. Im not proud, but I had a fun weekend, and its not a problem for me to get right back on track. Trust me..my intestinal system is paying me back BIG time.

The good news is that I had a great weekend. The wedding was a blast. It was held in this really old church on the north side of chicago, and afterwards the wedding party and some others (including me) rode on a trolley along side Lake Shore Drive looking out on Lake Michigan. It was so beautiful, and we had a fun ride to the reception. The reception itself was very nice and I had a lot of fun dancing. Sure I burned some calories there! Saturday my boyfriend and I went to the pumpkin farm and had a good time in the corn maze and petting zoo. Did a lot of walking in the corn maze, so thats got to count for something as well.


I got a lot of requests for some pictures of my non plus size dress, so here you go:

Sounds fun and worth the .8 gain. I went to a corn maze this weekend too. It was a blast and good exercise. We were lost in it for almost 2 hours. Good times.

I agree - Heather, you must come help me shop! You look amazing. Gains are hard to swallow, but you're still fighting through and that's what's important.

Glad you had a great time. It's a lot better when we get a gain but it's worth it for the occasion right? Plus, you know it's not permanent. Dancing is such a fun way to get exercise in too.

You looked gorgeous too! :-)

You are beautiful, Heather! And such a pretty dress...

What's .8 lb when you look at the memories you made gaining it? You can get rid of that easy!

You are gorgeous, and let me join all the others in saying that I love the dress :-) Looks like you had a great time, don't sweat over the gain, it will go away in no-time!
