i know i have gained weight. i know.
i don't think i can get on the scale for a week. i need to diet & exercise, then weight myself so the bitter truth won't be as difficult to swallow.

i have enjoyed myself. a lot.
even though we did a great deal of exercising with what's been happening with weight-loss...I don't think that's going to cut it for maintenance.
since before the wedding i was having a difficult time losing weight (or even a difficult time not gaining), i'm worried my last 2 week "off my diet" regimine has kicked my rear.
i really wish i could take 3 - 6 months off of work and solely focus on this and get this conquered.
i'm not really sure what to do...what direction to go. i'm thinking lots of fruits and veggies throughout the day and a lean protein dinner...and lots of exercise.
i am finding it difficult to find the motivation to do medifast.
kind of sad tonight. frustrated. disappointed and a little lost.
i hope i can get things going in the right direction.
so tired of even thinking about this.
i know i can do it. i just want to get it done already!

and back to reality.

We had such a wonderful time with the wedding....the planning, prep, set-up, the wedding itself...everything!
But I glad my brain no longer is thinking rsvps, cake, who gets what, keys, fishing line...all of that.
The lovely Angela Cardas took some amazing photographs...
Thank you so much Angela!!
We just got back from a trip over to Black Butte Ranch and the surrounding area....loved it! We both have the same idea of a good time...lots of hiking/exploring, little bit of shopping, lots of eating and exercise.
Now I feel like life will get back to normal.
Go to work, come home, have time to actually do laundry and all sorts of little projects that have been set aside.
I am so happy to be married to my best friend. :)
