52sketches52weeks #11

Scrapping a little secret about myself that I have almost forgotten about  : 

4 years before this bridal photoshoot I did have a battle of the bulge over a period of 6-9 mths . 
Everyday after lunch I would wolf down a tube of Oreo cookies or have some ice cream. 
I snacked a lot . 
I kept having to buy new pant sizes every month - until one day I even had to use X-L ( where I was usually a Medium size ) ! 
I went from 48 kg to a whopping ( for me ! ) 60 kg at the height of my bulge battle. 
Fortunately as quickly as I gained that weight I also lost it fast . 
( of course with better control of my diet ) 

In this photoshoot( 16 yrs ago ! ) I was about 49kg. 

Supplies : BG Wisteria - Garden Patio & Gazebo , Prima Life Colors Die Cut , Say It In Crystals Swirl, Various Prima lace, CI Narratives Journaling Spots by Karen Russell, Ice Stickles , Forever In Time Glitter Alphas , 
& I whipped out my now trusty paper plate to trace out the circular shape

Nice how you used the paper frame and all the lace elements. Gorgeous layout to look at. I also struggled with my weight at the time I met my husband 20 years ago. In a few years time everything was OK and now I weigh the same as before the boys were born.
