My Family :-)
My niece got married yesterday. It was an amazing day! On Thursday of last week it was raining and the clouds seemed locked in. The forecast for Saturday was sunny and 18 C, but it looked like that wasn't going to happen (to me anyway!). We couldn't have asked for a nicer day. It was a beautiful Fall day! Even though the ceremony and reception were inside at a Hotel near the river bank it was great to be able to take pictures outside. You can't get better lighting than natural light. The ceremony was so nice. My niece's Dad has never been in her life so she had her Grandpa walk her down the aisle. It was so sweet and touching. They wrote their own vows which was very nice and from the heart. My sister and her friend sang a song at the ceremony "Feels Like Home". I could go on and on but it was a really nice ceremony and the reception was great too. Dean (my hubby) was the M.C. and he did so good! He kept getting compliments as the night went on. I made a slideshow for them with pics from baby right up till current day set to music. Everyone seemed to like it. Here's a few more pics.

I could go on and on.....but I won't. It was a great day! I thought I looked pretty good but I was still self conscience of my weight gain. It's not like it ruined my day, it was just on my mind. The regret, the feeling of failure..... I was very tired today so I didn't do much. Some visiting, a bit of laundry and I made supper and that's about it! I'm glad I have tomorrow off work.
I have made up my mind to join the new gym I was talking about before. I'm going to go tomorrow and sign up. I need to kick start my weight loss. I think this will help. There is 122 days until we leave for our Maui vacation. We are celebrating our 25th anniversary next year and this is our gift to each other. I want to be in better shape than I am right now. I'm going to try hard to work on the binge eating. For me it's such a head game. When I got to goal last year I just really believed that I was going to be successful and it worked. I need to get my head in that same place again. So tomorrow I will face the scale, (it won't be pretty I know) and move on. Small steps, drinking more water, moving more and trying to get the snacking under control. I know I can do this. I'm going to try to blog more too and possibly post my weight numbers. I'm still thinking about that. I don't want to get scale obsessed / crazy. Tomorrow is a new day. I'm excited about the new gym. More on that to come.
Family is everything. We may have our ups and downs but I love my crazy, beautiful family.
