jen + nadia: is it bad luck to see what your friends are wearing to yr weddings? anyways, that's what it looks like on me. i'm pretty happy with it, but as you can see that my tum bulge is poking out a bit. i am working on that. since danimal lost so much weight by cutting out processed sugar from his diet, i am trying the same thing. yeah, i know...sugar is my blood, but i am doing really good and only cheating a tiny bit (examples from this weekend: half a cookie instead of 3 or 4 cookies, splitting a dairy free chocolate mousse cake with 2 other people, etc.). i really do feel a lot better. no soda whatsoever, not even sips. i just want to lessen this paunch in time for jtak and nadia's weddings so i look super fancy in that dress next to zachary!
