Never give up

I started working out March 16 as a size 16/18, my dress is size 12. I weighed myself at the beginning (213lbs).. have no idea what I weigh now, don't own/want a scale. No calorie counting. About half way through, I received a lot of feedback telling me to see a seamstress or get a new dress. But I also was supported by a lot more. I am so thankful for that and glad that I didn't give up.


My big day is coming up later this month.. so this has been a 3 month journey of healthy, positive decisions and hard work. If you find yourself in a situation where your dress is too small or you want to get in better shape, never give up. You have choices and options. Make small changes and work your way up to bigger, permanent ones.


The new photos were taken todayI'm still bloated as it's that TOM and there is still some time before the wedding so not gonna bother/force it with the last 2 buttons atm. I hope this inspires someone reach their goals.

    Yassss girl so glad to see your update! You look amazing and I can't wait to see your wedding photos in a few weeks 😍 My wedding is in 3 months too and I'm trying to ramp up my consistency with nutrition and workouts (already down almost 70, in the past few years) but trying to get a bit more before the big day. Great job!
