Always a Bridesmaid

Yes, I have been in numerous weddings.  Starting from 1 1/2 years old until now, I have been:

  • a flower girl three times

Aunt Mary and Uncle Bill’s Wedding May 1983

Auntie Nean & Uncle Criss’ Wedding August 1984

Uncle John & Aunt Therese’s Wedding January 1989

  • maid of honor for my mom

My mom’s wedding November 1993

  • flower attendant

Anne Marie and Lloyd’s Wedding November 1983

  • junior bridesmaid for my step-mom (no pic yet)
  • bridesmaid twice
  • reader twice

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.

I was about 164 lbs.

Next up . . . MY OWN WEDDING!  That should get me motivated, right?

      Thanks! By the way Chi-town is totally one of my favorite cities. I spent one summer living near Grant Park and another winter up in Roger’s park. I miss the “L” and Giordano’s.
