Pretty much guaranteed to be hungry in an hour or so ๐Ÿ˜ฌ the struggle is real ๐Ÿ˜ซ

I need to get out of my tracking rut. Logging into the WW app feels like a chore so I am not doing it ๐Ÿ™ˆ๐Ÿ™Š I'll admit it, I am too lazy to track (yet I have the energy to post to IG ๐Ÿ™„).
Any advice to get my mojo back?

Let us be real, I have binged on many Say Yes to the Dress episodes ๐Ÿ“บ and this purchase was anything but what you see on TV. Just me and my phone ๐Ÿ“ฑdeciding that my dress will be made by @dressanomalie ๐Ÿ’• Never did I ever think I would be designing my own dress ๐Ÿ™†๐Ÿป
While I don't have a picture to share I will say it will be prettier than these pancakes...which means it is ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ’ฏ

Back into the weekly weigh in roll and dropped โฌ‡๏ธ -1.8lbs this week which is the biggest loss I have seen in a long time ๐Ÿ˜Ž
I am 0.5lbs away from seeing my lowest weight in the last 9 years ๐Ÿ˜ฑ However, Bae commenting on my abs in a two-piece swimsuit ๐Ÿ‘™ yesterday meant more to me than some number on the scale ๐Ÿ˜Ž Oh, and hello two-piece!

#brinner is where it's at ๐Ÿ˜ and it's #wafflewednesday ๐Ÿ’ฏ [7 SP]

This girl ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿป needed some waffles after a disappointment ๐Ÿ˜” with the at-home try on bridal ๐Ÿ‘ฐ๐Ÿป separates (talked about it in my story a few days ago). My shipment got messed up, the sample tops did not even remotely fit me (when the company says the samples will be close to street size ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ), and from what I did try on, it just wasn't for me. They have gorgeous pieces but it's back on the dress hunt ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ
