Ok, now that I know what I'm doing, I'm going to delete my Bulging Bride weight loss blog. I track my food on Fitday, and that keeps a record for me. I also have a journal/diary on the weight loss forum I joined. I think that's plenty of tracking...no need for overkill.
As for the weight, I'm starting to feel confident that I'll be in a size I'm more comfortable with by the time I'm ready to try on dresses (or most likely, have one made!).
I'm down 16lbs already. I know I have a long way to go, but I'm getting there day by day, and I'm happy with my progress.
I'll periodically update here.
