Bec gets Hitched

Well, its official.. the Mayfield Family is closed for business. Rebecca got married this past weekend. She was a beautiful bride and the wedding was a blast and my kids (and Heathers) did great walking down the aisle. I had a little bit of bridesmaid dress drama before the wedding. When the dress arrived it was much too big in the chest and way too tight in the hips. I think there are two words for this problem... Pear and Shaped. After the seamstress took the dress out as much was possible it was still too tight. So in true Amber 'wait until the last second' fashion I just starved myself the week before, spent 6 out of 7 days at the gym and found the greatest thing ever made.. Spanx. You see, I really like to tackle things the healthy way. Luckily after a week of hell, the dress fit fine.
Now lets talk about what the week after the wedding has looked like for me....
-I decided to sleep in on Monday instead of going to the gym b/c afterall it was a stressful weekend for me and we did do a lot of dancing at the reception.
-On Tuesday I went to the Chinese all you can eat buffet and got my $6.95 worth plus about $10.50 more
-On Wednesday me and Coke rekindled our love for one another.
-On Thursday I ate so much Italian food for lunch that I literally felt like I couldn't move. This included 4 huge garlic rolls before the meal even came to the table. Then came home and ate a huge helping of lasagna.
-Today (Friday) I decided to go with a lighter/healthier meal and eat Captain D's where in addition to my fried fish me and Mom ordered some cracklins (if you're not familiar -this is just fried fat that they will give you for free) then I couldn't ignore the voice of Starbucks calling me in to order a Grande Mocha Frappachino.

All in all I would say thats its a dang good thing I wont be wearing the dress again any time soon. Next week I am totally gonna get back on the road to skinny.

    I am dying laughing at your "week after" comments! I am having a flashback to that week-end in the mountains...we all ate at the Dillard house...and you said, "I am starting to get that full feeling." Kevin replied, "IGNORE it and KEEP EATING!" I miss you guys!
