I was finally a bridesmaid for a friend, the first time, in March 2005. Being a bridesmaid was actually a bit of the impetus for me to lose weight and join Weight Watchers. By the time I walked down the aisle I looked like this:
Yes, we wore pale green in March in Minnesota! Thanks, Jan! I also did the spray tan so that I wouldn’t look horrible. Actually, I felt pretty good. I was about 150 lbs at this point!
Then, if you followed “My Struggles” you’d know that I then gained back my weight. When I was a bridesmaid next, October 2006, I looked like this:
Yuck! That’s me be serenaded by the glee club, since my birthday was the next day. I weigh 165ish. I have no idea honestly. I just hate the pictures from this wedding. I feel so bad for my friend. I know she loves me no matter what I look like, but I do not feel proud to see these pictures.
Gig #3 was this past January.
Next up . . . MY OWN WEDDING! That should get me motivated, right?
