Bathing Suit Challenge, one beautiful dress and BMI news!!

Happy Tuesday everyone!

I am enjoying my day off on this beautiful Tuesday. About to get ready to do a little spring shopping then going to get my 4th fill and then cooking dinner and spending time with my cousin, Lindsay (the one who just got married and got back from her fabulous honeymoon!)

I currently have 6.5 cc's in my band. My last fill was 8 weeks ago and I have lost about 10 pounds since then. So hopefully I am able to get the fill I need!

So I havent been on the blog for about two days and it seems I missed out on participating for the Bathing Suit Challenge :( But I still want to participate with you lovely ladies! Kristen, if you are reading this, will you email me at fashionista0418@yahoo.com and let me know the rules/regulations/requirements? Or if any of you ladies reading this are participating, will you comment below and let me know how the challenge works? Thank you so much!

I have set my own little challenge up for myself and here it is....
I want to be below 200 pounds when I go on my cruise on July 15th. I started this personal challenge on March 19th and my weight was 226. This morning, March 30th, I weigh 221.5! That means I need to lose about 22 pounds more in the next 3 months and 15 days!


In some fashion news, I found a new dress that I want! I NEED! I HAVE TO HAVE!! AHH! The only problem is the money...it is $470 from Bloomingdale's but it is BEAUTIFUL!! I cant justify spending $470 on a dress with all the other things I need right now. The designer is Tadashi Shoji and here is a picture of it! What do you think?! Beautiful, right?!


Last but not least, I decided to recalculate my BMI because I havent done so since my surgery. On surgery day my BMI was 40.2. Today my BMI is 34.8! On my way to "healthy BMI"!

I will end on that fabulous note! Hope you all have a great day!! If anyone lives near Birmingham, Alabama area or even Mississippi or Georgia, a few of us are trying to get together next week for dinner! Let me know if you want to come join us! We would love to have you!!


  1. Great job! Beautiful dress, but I wonder if you'd get enough wear out of it to justify the price. You are going down in sizes so quickly.

  2. 22 pounds in 3 1/2 months is very doable. I do live in the Mississippi Gulf Coast area but I am leaving on my own cruise next week so I will miss meeting you. I am very disappointed!

  3. OMG - I could eat that dress up it's so delicious.....I'm not going to tell you not to buy it cuz I just can't - it's too HAWT!

  4. Hey Pretty, I just sent you an email with all the challenge rules, so you should be all set! This challenge will totally help get you down those 22lbs, you can do it!

  5. Hey!! I would love to get together Monday or Tuesday for dinner! I get off work at 5, but would be available for dinner around 7. I will email you my cell number so we can make some concrete plans.

    Good luck with your fill! I go this coming Monday for a fill and am hoping that they actually give me one!

  6. that dress is gorgeous and you would look fabulous in it!!! definitely a dress for the cruise...maybe by that time the price will go down?

  7. Hey Lady! Where are you guys leaving your cruise from? I have a feeling it's not Seattle :( Wish I lived closer so we could meet up! :)

    P.S. I LOVE that dress!

  8. That dress is too cute! Hey what swimsuit challenge???? Where do I sign up? :)

  9. The dress is beautiful. Would be great to get once you reach your goal weight so you don't shrink out of it. However, if you decide to get it then shrink out of it, I have dibs. :-)

  10. Good luck with your fill and that dress ig gorgeous...but wouldn't fit you for long??? Congrats on the loss

  11. Love the dress, but save the $$ for your skinny you wardrobe you'll need (it's definitely your color though!).

    I gave you the Stiletto Award (today's blog).
