7 Years Ago

Seven years ago today I had the surgery that changed my life.
I noticed that I haven't written on this blog in a year!
So sorry!
I looked at my weight stats for 2012 and I was 153 lbs.
Today...a year later...I'm 152 lbs.
Not bad!

These picturse are from my brother's wedding this past November.
I was a bridesmaid and Tristyn was the flower girl.
Wearing this dress and having my hair and makeup done was amazing.
The dress was a size 12.
I only had to have it hemmed and the straps taken in a bit.
Other than fit perfectly.
When has the EVER happened to me?...Never.

My own god mother didn't even recognize me when I came down the aisle.
She literally said to herself, "I didn't know Kevin had another brown haired bridesmaid."
And then she realized it was me.

I felt so pretty that day.
I walked down that aisle with confidence that I had never felt before.
For the first time...I truly felt beautiful.
