The Plan

Can I let you in on a secret? Hubby and I are planning of renewing our vows. This time, in the church setting.

Hubby and I got married over civil rites, to the dismay of my parents especially my mother. My mom, when she was still alive, would tell me every chance she gets that hubby and I should get married in the church.

Hubby and I decided to have the civil wedding for practical reasons. We know a lot of couples who got married and spent close to a million pesos just for the wedding. Later on, they have to break their backs just so they can pay the debts. We did not want to start our marriage like that.

Anyway, I promised my mom we would get married again soon. I was just trying to lose weight back then. My mom said, you don't have to wait that long, you can always wear plus size wedding dresses. I said, okay, we'll do it on our fifth wedding anniversary.

But my mom passed away before that.

Hubby and I talked about renewing our vows. We're planning to do it on our 10th wedding anniversary. We won't have the lavish wedding, just a simple one with family and friends.

If this is going to happen, I plan to wear a gown by Rajo Laurel. Ambisyosa! Hahaha. Just kidding.

I will just make sure that I will not gain weight again like this:

Photo taken July 2008. This was my heaviest weight ever. Over the years, I lost some weight. It was a yo-yo weight actually but I have never become this heavy again.

Last year, August 2011 to be exact, when I decided I want to lose weight permanently, I have lost a total of 26lbs. This is me, now.

I am very happy with my weight loss. Hubby has been following my lead and just like I said in my previous post, he has lost almost 8 kgs now.

The wedding renewal may or may not happen. But one thing is for sure, we will definitely maintain our weight and enjoy being healthy together.
