Finally proud of myself
Sunday, August 08, 2010
My son got married yesterday. I am so proud of him and his accomplishments. He has come a long way. I can also say that I am proud of me! I can't remember the last time I said that about myself. Some people loose weight for special occasions in life only to gain it back and then some after the event is over. I was already at my goal weight and maintaining before the wedding took place. Trying on dresses was a breeze and I thought I looked good in every one of them. (if you knew me, you would know how hard this was for me to say) On the day of the wedding I splurged and got my hair and makeup done by a professional. The ceremony was outdoors and it was gorgeous! But I have to say that one of the highlights of the day was the compliments I got on how beautiful I looked. My friends and relatives came up to me all night long telling me how much they loved the dress and how great I looked in it. I was on cloud nine! So the next time I'm wondering why I'm going through the tortures of eating right and exercising, I'll look back at my sons wedding and say, Ahhh, that's why I do it. It feels great to finally be proud of myself!
