Going in with a Smile

This week I decided to not do a weight review. I honestly didn’t go to my Weight Watchers meeting last night either and I planned to not weigh myself this week. The main reason I am doing this is because of the horrible relationship I have with the scale, and I wanted to go into the wedding dress shopping with a smile. I tend to take the number and twist it in my head no matter what it says. If it says I lost, I give myself more justification to splurge a little. If it goes the other direction and shows a gain, I usually just beat myself up and swear to myself to do better the following week. This then leads into me feeling guilty about everything that goes in my mouth and it is just not a good thing. I am not breaking up with the scale permanently, I really do believe that keeping an eye on your weight is a good way to stay on track with your goals. This new scale might change my mind when I am not doing Weight Watchers

The Zero Scale.

I really like the concept of not seeing an actual number on the scale.

Non-Scale Victory!

I was at the gym last night and have a serious NSV; while I was looking at myself in the mirror doing body pump I noticed some muscle definition in my shoulders and arms. I tried to not stare at myself the whole time but hey when your sexy it’s hard 😉 Then as body pump went on I was doing side planks and saw what looked like the starting of a baby 4 pack in my upper abs. I was like whoa! Seriously?? When I went home I realized that it might have just been my angle and the way I was laying but hey I will take anything that looks like abs!

So now I am still beaming over the progress I saw from all my hard work the past few months. I could care less what the evil mean scale says anyways, I am going into wedding dress shopping with a smile 🙂

What are your thoughts on the scale?

I personally have always had a love hate relationship with it, as I said above. But I am not sure that I can truly give it up.

Dresses dancing in my head

I am crazy excited to go try on wedding dresses this weekend! I have been staring at this dress shop that is right around the corner from my house for the last 3 years that we have been living there. Naturally this place was going to be my first stop when the time had come for looking at wedding dresses, and the time is Sunday! I keep looking at pictures and thinking about what I might want but honestly I know that I am going to have to see what everything looks like on me. Drooling over pictures can only do so much (but it sure is fun!) In an effort to keep in an actual surprise, I don’t want to put any pictures up of what I am thinking of, you will just have to imagine. But here are some stuff I am definitely not thinking will be an option for my wedding dress.


This dress is really just too much! And even thought I am not a virgin I am feeling more white.


This one is just crazy. I honestly don’t think it is that bad besides the shoulders.


Well there you have it, I had a bit of a hard time finding really bad ones. I honestly don’t think the last ones are too bad but they are somewhat ridiculous. But really who am I to judge what people want to wear on their special day?

Would you wear any of these dresses?
