I married the woman of my dreams last month in Seattle. 😍

I can’t wait to get the professional photos back! Best day ever 😍 😊 I’m so exhausted I can’t think straight but SO happy to call this beautiful woman my wife.. We have some amazing people in our life who made this possible.

We had the wedding at a B&B in Washington, and then stayed at a yurt owned by a woman who ended up being a couples therapist. We pulled the mattress under the skylight and fell asleep under the stars and treetops. It couldn’t have been more perfect. ☺️

Our engagement photos 😊

Oh yeah, I have brown hairs now. I feel like a grownup. 😳

I have been pretty down the last week or so, so here is a reminder of all the small victories I’ve had over the last couple years.

- I literally cannot remember the last time I’ve binged. I’d say at least a year. That. Is. Huge.

- The only time I get weighed is at the doctor.

- I initiated the conversation about my depression and anxiety with my amazing new doctor. Also a huge deal.

- Though I’ve only lost 20lbs, I can tell I’ve dropped my body fat percentage quite a bit, and my body has changed SO much. I’ve also maintained that loss rather than immediately gaining it back.

- Healthy eating is my brain’s default setting now. It’s a habit, it’s normal. I can’t begin to explain how much easier it makes getting into shape. I remember years ago hearing people say that building healthy habits is the way to go and the eye rolling would be uncontrollable but I’m that obnoxious ass person now! I have no idea when it kicked in, but it seems permanent. I’m too in tune with my body now (which I’d say is the BIGGEST difference) to treat it like I used to.

Also, I’m getting married in less than two weeks. I’m gonna have to change my name on here! :P

I’m trying to be better about taking my vitamins but do they make a better tasting Gingko Biloba?! This one tastes like I’m rubbing elephant assholes on my tongue.

Diet culture tells us to put food we don’t like into a body we don’t like and makes us believe this behavior will lead to happiness. It’s paradoxial. We have to change our mindset and the rest will follow, I promise. It doesn’t have to be a fight. (via anna-learns-to-love-herself)
