You know those before and after pics?

Well my wedding dress is heading off to it’s maker to be remade. Since there are about six acres of fabric she and her daughter should make good use of it for their various period costumes. I figured it deserved a send off. So here it is, featuring in before and after.

so wedding day (I gained a little weight after this, but not a significant amount).


So there it is, me and my tall skinny ex husband on our wedding day, just over three years ago.

You may say ‘yikes’ my personal trainer helpfully pointed out I looked like ‘blob’ when I was fat. Charming these Austrians.





and me and the dress today, obviously no Mark for comparison purposes. I’m kinda pleased with the change.  So there it is, dress commemorated, now it can go.

  6. OMG! I knew that you had lost a fuckton of weight but those before & after pics dont even look like the same person! You look fantastic. You should be very proud.

  7. Adele says:

    LMFAO!! yeah a fuckton is about the right unit. Thing is, physically and personality wise, I am probably more like I was at 18 than at 28. 🙂

  8. Adele says:

    needless to say the final after pic will be in tiny clothes that are only just decent, not an enormous dress. ;p
