This week has went by fast and its been a great one. A few weeks ago I wrote a post here that talked about how I am now viewing my dieting, exercise, etc as a lifetime change and honestly I've felt great ever since.
I don't know but it has all felt like something clicked. I feel happy in my own skin for the first time in such a long time. I find myself making more time for exercising and its just something natural now. I did great with my eating, even on the weekend, which has always posed problems for me. I guess I'm just proud. No matter what the scale says tomorrow morning I know I did myself proud.
This week two great things happened. I fit back into a pair of my dress pants that I haven't worn in years. In fact I remember the last time I wore them they were clinging so much to my thighs they looked too short-a really comfortable feeling I might add. Anyways now they are just right and even baggy in the legs.
And the other thing is that I can now fit into some of Cole's clothes. Here is a pic of me today before my walk wearing Cole's grey hoodie from American Eagle. I am truly excited and the smile is also because it is raining here and I'm a freak-I LOVE RAIN.Here is a pic of my current dream wedding dress-it changes often-hahaAlso I thought I would post a couple of hair styles I like so far - Which do you like the best?
A)B) C)In my last post I talked about wanting to set a big short term goal for myself and after putting much thought into it I decided to try to be under 200 by the end of June. This is a huge goal for me since it generally takes me a while to lose weight but I won't get discouraged if I don't so it can only help. Set any goals lately?


  1. Thanks for the comment Candace! I know exactly how you feel about this becoming a new way of life.

    I love that cheesy grin on your face!! Your happiness just flys off that picture.

    LOVE the dress!!! I really like the bodice and how the material accentuates the waistline.

    As for the Do's I like A or C. The middle one reminds me of the Bump-It commercials. I like C the best though. You could really accent the style with the clip you use.


  2. Oh my god, I LOVE RAIN too! We've been having a lot of isolated thunderstorms here, and today was sunny so some people were like "I'm so glad the sun is out." They all looked at me like I had a foot growing out of my head when I said "boo! I miss the rain!" There's something about being cozy inside when it's stormy outside! I LOVE that last hairstyle. I don't know how your hair holds curls and style, but all the weddings I've been to where the bride left her hair down, it lost its shape throughout the reception and looked scraggly by the end. Plus if you wear it up, you'll keep your neck from sweating when you're bustin' a groove on the dancefloor! (That'd be MY main concern!)

  3. It must be wonderful to fit into pants you haven't worn in years! All three styles are adorable but A looks like one that might still look pretty by the END of the reception.

  4. Don't you just love when things click? Great stuff, Candace!

    I like do #3 the best.

  5. Cute pic of you!! That's awesome you're fitting into smaller clothes. :) I'm so happy to hear you're happy in your own skin and you're proud of how you've been living. That's the best feeling, isn't it?

    That dress is awesome. Hairdo C is my favorite!!

    12 pounds by the end of the month... That's an intense goal, so it'll certainly motivate you!! Kick butt, girl!! :)

  6. You are looking like an angel. You are seems to be very dedicated to your weight loss. So you get it.
