I bought this material with a girlfriend of mine at one of our trips to the National City Swap Meet. This bad boy cost me all of $4.00 including the additional cost of the fold-over-elastic (FOE) I used at the neckline and armhole edges.
A few of you have already commented, but yes I have been losing weight. I am exactly ONE POUND AWAY from my pre-pregnancy weight. Many family members and friends have suggested that I look even smaller than that, but it is probably due to the fact that my current weight loss regimen included EXERCISE in addition to food restriction. Shocking, I know. LOL. Let's see - Jenny Craig and smoothies for food and an extensive workout plan: During the workweek I will either walk with my co-worker wearing a 20-pound weighted vest for 1/2 hour or go to Curves and do the circuit for 30 minutes. In addition to this four-day program, I make it to 24-hour fitness twice a week for 1-1/2 hour class workouts. Nilah just turned 19 months old a few days ago, so it took longer than my goal of 1 year, but has been very successful either way. Slow and steady wins the race after all, right?
Stay tuned as I start working on my bombshell dress for my 20th year high school reunion that takes place early August. Now that I'm down to the size I want, I have to get to it and fast.
