My husband threw down the gauntlet for me a couple of weeks ago y’all. He’s going to buy me the Kate Spade dress of my dreams if I lose that 50 lbs I’ve been hem hawwing about losing for years.
We were browsing at the outlet mall nearby a few weeks ago and because I’m such a Kate Spade fan, I *had* to go check it out. I live in a small city in Michigan, so we don’t have access to many big name designers locally.
Kate Spade – THE dress
I haven’t had a dress moment like that since I picked out my wedding dress.
I mean…just *look* at it.
It also has pockets. And comes in hot pink.
But it only goes up to a size 14. If you’ve watched any of my previous videos, you will easily be able to tell a size 14 I am not. I do see up to a size 16 online, but I want the satisfaction of walking into the store, throwing down the credit card and walking out with *that* beauty up there. Or maybe the pink one.
Since we’re all good friends here, I’ll go ahead and just put it out there – I’m 5’6, 232 lbs, and a size 18/20 depending on the brand and cut.
When I think back to the last time I was a size 14 *cough* 10 years ago *cough* I was 180ish lbs, so that’s what I’m basing my weight loss number off of. I was size 10/12 in high school so I was never what you would consider to be small.
LAWD to go back to those days where I thought I was fat LOL. Who’s with me on that?
Losing the weight is going to be tough, that’s for sure. I’m really motivated right now, but I worry about a few months from now. What are some tips/tricks you use to stay motivated during a big weight loss period?
I’ll be making a motivational Pinterest board which you can follow along with here, and sharing progress photos every 10ish lbs. I say ish because, I won’t be taking my first progress photo until I reach 220 which is just over 10 lbs for me right now.
Drop some healthy recipes, favorite workouts, tips, or motivation for me below in the comments. I’m going to need it <3
