Ireland - target weight NOT made by target date - little black dress

So, I was supposed to lose weight for this MUCH anticipated large family wedding on Friday 17th July 2009. I did not achieve it.....

I don't yet have photos from the wedding as my camera was broken.

BUT I have the below 2 photos from the BBQ that was the following day (18th July). I took below at about 1 a.m. at night after getting home from the BBQ. So technically it was 19th July. Took below on BlackBerry so I would have a photo record of my dress :-)

I did take a couple of photos on day of wedding (with BlackBerry) but stupidly I did not take any with me in, but my Uncle has promised to email me some.

The below photos really prove that what you wear can make a HUGE difference. I think the dress below is much more slimming than the one I wore for the wedding.

If I was a stranger looking at below I would not believe I am 14 stone..... That's probably what makes me stay off the wagon, because occasionally I do scrub up well :-)

I am not being big headed, just love this dress and was very happy with what my little cousin did with my hair. You can't tell in photo but the front was back combed behind my head band

Anyway, on Tuesday I am off to the yoga festival, so will get super healthy there.

Bye for now, Liska

Hi Liska! You look so beautiful in that dress. I am so envious of your yoga retreat. It sounds absolutely fantastic. I think maybe you're right about needing to find an eating plan to help me stick, but I'm still reading and contemplating my options... I'll let you know what I come up with.
