    Congratulations on your results! You look incredibly toned and fit.

    I’m super surprised you don’t like jeans. I LOVE jeans if I find one that fits right. Jeans shopping can definitely be a nightmare though. I give you that ๐Ÿ™‚

    Woohoo for progress! (I’m actually wearing that same Champion/Target sports bra right now–so comfortable!) And yes, when I saw the Pretty Muddy pictures, I noticed how toned your arms look. Awesome! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yay for progress!! All I have to say about the dress is get it to fit you as you are now. I have heard too many sad stories of ladies who had it tailored smaller because they thought they would be, and then they weren’t. Oh so sad. Plus, it seems to me that you don’t have any inches to loose. You look very fit to me! =)

    Congratulations on your results – you look amazing! Keep it up. I loved your comment about you’re only human and not perfect. It’s really refreshing to hear (read). I am trying to be more conscious of what I am putting into my body… so, thanks for the inspiration/motivation.

    omg I HATE jeans. Pants in general other than yoga pants. They’re just not made for women who carry their weight in their abdomen. So uncomfortable. Lol and I need to do what you’re doing because I’ve seen zero progress over the past month and I’ve even been tracking calories.

    It is awesome how you’re already seeing changes. I’m with you, I hate jeans. That’s what we wear to work and every day I have a little anxiety at the thought of putting them on.

    You look great!

    Snacks can be hard, I usually do everything that’s on your list. I like the combo of string cheese & fruit. Or whole grain crackers with a little PB.

    Awesome progress! But I love my jeans! LOL That is how I measure my progress, by how my jeans and bras fit.

    My sister had her dress altered by getting rid of the zipper in the back and replacing it with ribbon…

    kinda like this…http://blog.nj.com/jerseyweddings/2007/09/99_sale_davids_bridal.html

    That way, whether she was a little bigger or smaller on the actual day, it was the perfect fit!

    I’ve tried a bunch of homemeade protein bar recipes and strangely, this YouTube recipe is the best – it’s also great because you can throw in any ingredients you’d like.

    I used almond butter instead of peanut, subbed full agave rather than half agave – half applesauce, nixed the nuts, added coconut, tried it with chocolate covered espresso beans, used raisins rather than craisins, and used 85% dark chocolate. Really its the ratio of ingredients that makes these work! Let me know if you give it a try!

    No meat athlete has some great recipes…one being the “ULTIMATE energy bar formula”. I am not vegan but love the recipes on the site… ๐Ÿ™‚

    AWESOME job! I love your approach.
    As for snacks, they are my hardest too because apples = all carbs and sugar, and I tend to overdo it with nuts and nut butter. I’ve foudnd that a can of tuna, some veggies, or even just a smaller portion of leftover dinner (meat + veggies) is good for me! Also KALE CHIPS with nooch = veg and some protein!

    I waited until very close to the wedding to start alterations. I have a thyroid problem at the moment, so my weight can fluctuate in either direction pretty quickly, so I figured there was no point in getting it altered too far in advance. I had a consultation with the seamstress in July, then came back three weeks before the wedding, then again 5 days before. It worked out well, and I think my dress ended up fitting me like a glove!

    You truly look awesome. I would love those arms. But, I have to ask, what happened to being “unapologetically not cute” and why do you need to provide so many disclaimers in your caption as to not looking good? Seems like the exact opposite of your stance from the Instagram post.

    • Meghann
      November 15, 2012

      I think I added the disclaimer for my own humor. However, you’re right, I shouldn’t have apologized for how I looked. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Snacks are tough… a few of my low-carb go-tos (besides nuts) are cheese with fruit or veggies, veggies dipped in nut butter or a greek-yogurt based dip, or one of those Chicken of the Sea salmon cups with a few whole grain crackers. (Bumblebee also makes some yummy flavored tuna cups, but I eat more salmon because of the extra omegas and lower mercury.) If I’m really in a hurry and starving, a slice or two of deli turkey rolled up will help tide me over.

    Good luck and don’t forget to enjoy these last couple months of your engagement! ๐Ÿ˜‰ It’s a stressful time, but also very exciting, and it will go by quicker than you expect. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Lately for a snack I have been eating a slice of low sodium deli turkey or ham with a little smear of roasted red pepper hummus and then wrap that around a small pickle. I live the crunch of the pickle. I also make up a few at a time and keep in a container so I can grab and go.
    Your arms look amazing!

    I struggle with snacks that don’t have too many carbs/too much sugar too! Here are snacks I have been enjoying:

    Hard-boiled eggs or egg salad
    Homemade chicken salad
    Deli turkey or ham + sliced hard cheese + crackers
    Soup

    My favorite go-to snacks are bananas and hummus + baby carrots. I have to measure out 1/4 cup of hummus, though, or I will lick the entire tub clean. ๐Ÿ™‚
