If you are a woman – then you know EXACTLY what the title of this post means. I tried on my dress a couple of weeks ago on a whim and, to my complete amazement, zipped that sucker up BY MYSELF! If I thought God had anything to do it, I'd thank her.
I tried the dress on again a couple of days ago and it fit a wee bit snugger (due to extreme PMS bloating, m'thinks) but I was still able to zip it up on my own and breath/move comfortably. Wanna see the proof?

Alright yes – I'm sporting a nice backfat crack there but y'all – IT FITS!!!! I'm pretty damn thrilled with myself. I've still got quite a way to go (10-15 pounds to be exact) but fitting into that dress and being able to zip it myself was (and still is) the greatest feeling. Let's relish it for a bit, shall we?
And that done. So, here's where I stand. Last time I weighed myself I was at 142.2 pounds and had a body fat percentage of 29.3% (again with the weighing more but smaller mass thing – I'm sensing a trend for the rest of my weight loss journey…). I'm also solidly down and into a Size Small shirt (and could probably go even smaller if it wasn't for dos boobies) and a Size 10 pant. Sweeeeet!
I still have quite a bit more work to do on my tummy, hips, and thighs but now that I can zip up my friggin' weding dress? HUGE MOTIVATOR!But I still need my support team – as always, I’m putting it out there and asking Team Tulle for your support for the next month (my wedding month, GULP!).
