{weight watchers}

Last week I joined Weight Watchers. I've had some success on the program in the past. Specifically right before I got pregnant with Isobel. Then they went and changed everything and it wasn't working for me so I cancelled my membership. Well last week I was reminded by a co-worker about it and I signed up. This wedding is creeping up on me and I need to get serious about losing some weight. Of course not only for the wedding, for my overall health but looking better in my gown is always a plus, right?

So far I am loving the program again! They have Smart Points now and *most fruits and vegetable are 0 points. This is helpful to not go over your daily allotment of points. I have had days where I've gone over but yesterday I was way under and completely full on vegetables. I suppose that's a good thing!

I'm excited to start this journey. I will succeed this time. Consider it done. Also, I apologize ahead of time for all of the Weight Watchers posts and foods headed this way. I'm just way too excited about it!

Starting Weight: 234
Current Weight: 230
1st Goal Weight: 200

{And yeah, I put my weight out there. I don't care one bit. It's just a number. It does not define me. I'm still totally awesomesauce!}

{Wedding Inspiration...Lilac}

I've always wanted a Fall wedding. Fall is my favorite season and the leaves and all the Fall things are just magical. So when Lisa and I started planning our wedding it was obvious that we would get married in the Fall. Duh. Until Spring when the Lilacs bloomed....

Me: Lisa can we get married in the Spring? I want ALL THE LILACS at the wedding. It will be perfect.

Lisa: But we decided on Fall.  Our honeymoon is in the Fall.

Me: But the LILACS! I don't even have to buy them. I can just drive around the day before the wedding and cut them all down.

Truly this was a silly conversation. (And I'm paraphrasing here, of course.) We are meant to get married in the Fall. If only for the Epcot Food & Wine Festival. I mean, come on. That didn't stop me from pinning away all the lilac things. Here are a few of the pins that I loved so much.

I mean, come on! Look at this bouquet!

Look at how pretty they are as a table setting.

Rustic lilac? Yes please!

This cake is absolutely perfectly gorgeous in every way. If we were having a cake I would still go with this as our main color is still purpleish.

A couple of more cute ways to incorporate them.
