So today My best friend asked me to marry him .... obvs i said YES!!! He has made today the most magical happiest day of my life so far!!! I wanna tell the world how much i Love him and appreciate how he made my fairy tale come true! MY FOREVER ❤️❤️❤️🙊🙊🙊 #disneyengagement
Back in September I went to a wedding show with my mom sister and grandma, while there I decided to try on a few dresses just to see what i even liked! Lets me honest I can’t make my mind on anything and wedding dress shopping clueless I have been in 1 bridal boutique in my entire life, so I wanted to get so ideas on what I liked. Of course all the big princess ball gowns caught my eye right away and I grabbed a few and then I saw this really elegant sexy one that I thought was gorgeous! As soon as the bride took it off I asked to try it. Well it was a size 8 and it didn’t even go over my legs! I was mortified! I knew my health and fitness hadn’t be that great and I hadn’t realized how much I had let it go. At that moment stand in that dressing room almost ready to cry I knew I had to make a change. I found another dress (the one on the right) that was a size 14 and tried it on, it was obviously a little bit big but I didn’t feel flattered in it at all and seeing this picture brings back a lot of those super sad moments. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
That day I got home and logged into my Beachbody on demand and came up with a plan, I found a workout program that was 3 weeks long and the longest workout was 45 minutes. I did that and followed the nutrition plan and started seeing changes right away, I then went on to another 21 day program and saw strength that I had been missing, the confidence that was gone in September was creeping back in! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This weekend I went to another wedding show with the same people and a friend and was so excited to try on dresses again, I couldn’t wait to go behind that curtain and put on the sparkly white dress and come out and show everyone! Little did I know that all my hard work was really going to pay off because I was trying on sample gowns and they were TO BIG! I was having to have each on of them clamped down! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I am waiting till March to go and actually find my dream dress with all the most important ladies by my side so for now I am just getting ideas and seeing what I like but I can tell you that I am going to feel so elegant and sexy for not only that amazing man of mine at the end of the aisle but for myself as well! 💕
🎶 I met you in the dark, you lit me up, you made me feel as though I was enough 🎶 I’ve contemplated every day since I started this mission if I should share this story or not, and I feel like writing it out so here it goes. Once it’s written out, I know I will contemplate days upon days if I should even post it, but here it goes. I come from a long line of strong outspoken women, but I also come from a long line of women dealing with perfection. My mom watched her mother struggle through years of an eating disorder, and I watched my mom struggle through years of hers. It’s almost as if it’s a learned trait, the same way being strong on the outside is. Yet, no one acknowledges it or talks about it. It’s our best kept secret. I was 10 the first time I skipped a meal. I remember that moment, distinctly. The first time I looked at myself and truly thought I was not good enough because of what I saw on the outside. I dealt with that over the years but never fell into an full blown disorder. Just here and there. And then came college. I lived this happy life, my close knit circle was all around. After graduation, I lost my circle, every person I cared about was spread all over the state. It was the saddest and most lost I ever felt in my life. I felt like I had lost all control and With the loss of control came the desire to control something in my life. I chose to control my diet and my grades. Aside from my freshmen year of college, I essentially had a 4.0 each semester. Along with hours of studying came hours of exercise and controlling my food intake. This lasted for years; studying, exercising, skipping meals, repeat. After I graduated with my masters I knew I did not want to live like this anymore. I was determined to kick this habit. And so I began to make a conscious effort to love myself. & around that time, in walked Cesar. He is the light at the end of my tunnel. I don’t need him to feel confident in myself, but he loves me, walks along side me, and listens to my story without judgement. He makes me feel as though, I am enough. @jamesarthurinsta23 this song is special & we would be honored to have you at our wedding. Will you please play at our wedding?
