I've had this dress for three years. I rarely get to wear it because when I bought it I had just finished the Austin Half Marathon and was a little lighter back then. It didn't take long for me to put on some weight and it became impossible for me to get this dress over my head. Once a year some life event will happen that will result in me losing a few (or 10) pounds. Last year it was due to me and J going through a rough patch. This year it was selling the house, building a house, starting some new meds to manage my migraines and being sick last week. It's a miracle I've only lost 10 pounds! So I figured I better dust off this dress while I still could before I inevitably put the weight back on or worse, lose even more weight and the thing looks like a sack on me.

I don't plan or want to lose anymore weight. So if you'll excuse me, I believe there's a pint of mint chocolate chip ice cream calling my name. Nom nom nom!
