Losing the Spare Tire: Results Show Week 15

This week's installment of Losing the Spare Tire came with a challenge: to find a dress for my brother-in-law's wedding. And since I wanted to lose as much of the baby weight as possible before the wedding, like any intelligent person, I waited until THE VERY LAST MINUTE. When the hubs has to talk me off of the ledge as I am tearing out what little hair I have left and panicking because OH MY GOSH I DON'T HAVE ANYTHING TO WEAR AND I'M GOING TO HAVE TO GO TO THE WEDDING NAKED.

In the last two weeks, I have lost a total of three pounds, bringing me back down to 145lbs! I'm so close to my pre-baby weight that I can taste it. And it tastes like Splenda and veggies.

So with my new and exciting three pound loss, I braved my closet and pulled out my favorite little black dress that I purchased just before I got married. We're talking pre-wedding weight here folks, not just pre-baby. Y'all know there's a difference, thank you very much Minnesota hotdish and your accompanying 10 pounds.

To my shock and utter delight, the dress actually fit... around the hips. But to say that my post-baby boobs fit into the dress would be a gross misrepresentation. It's like saying that the calories from eating a 42oz. bag of M&M's are made of puppies and unicorn farts.

So it's going to take a bit of creativity and some industrial-strength duct tape, but I will wear that little black dress to the wedding. And if y'all are particularly convincing, I may just take a picture of the hubs and I once we're all dolled-up and post it so you can see what I look like when I take the time to comb my hair.
