Focusing on the good, I had a wonderful time on my "romantic weekend" at Lake Geneva with my fiance. The weather wasnt as good as we had wanted since we did want to go on the waverunners like we did last year or at least lay by the pool in the sun, but it was rainy and quite cool. But we found other fun things to do like going to two wineries as well as a cheese shop where we got to try some of WI most delicious cheeses! I ate a lot of seafood and while I know I over indulged at times, I actually think I did really well. We were pretty active, getting a lot of walking and swimming in the indoor pool in. And mostly, it was just nice to relax. We went in the hottub every night and it felt great. I didnt get on the scale today, but its fine. I actually could still use a break from it. I weighed myself last Wednesday and was down to 157 again which was wonderful, so i think the less frequent weighins might be just what I need.
While in the hottub one night, there was a couple there and the woman was quite large. While getting out of the hottub, some younger girls in bikinis and a guy got in and started to make fun of this woman because of her size. They made comments like "how could that guy be with her?" and "how can you let yourself get that size?". It made me so angry. here was a woman who was spending time with her husband and enjoying herself and then had to endure comments like that. Especially from these girls who, very likely will gain weight when they go off to college (I heard them say they were 18). Its just sad that there are people like this out there - it really is a form of discrimination. They know nothing about this woman. For all we know, she could have already lost a bunch of weight or be working hard to get to her goal weight. Or maybe she is struggling - in any case, she doesnt deserve to be judged on her weight. It was just an eye opening experience and once that really bothered me and shows that you can be an ugly person at any size and wearing a bikini!
My sample wedding dress of dress #1 I posted last month is in and I go to try it on tomorrow and take my measurements! So excited!
