is satin waterproof?

perhaps i could have a new tent when i go camping in the spring. *sigh* I thought I looked GOOD at my prom. FUCK THAT, I DID! here goes... the dress, which fills up a door way and me in the dress June 20th, 1997. Now...and don't mind the wrinkles, it's been sitting in a bag in a closet for 10 years! the thing that KILLED me was that i have NO boobage to fill it out (which my mother was not impressed to hear, but it's true) and you could really put at least 1 and half to 2 of me in it if you wanted. It was a shapeless green sheet, really. The top of it continually slipped off my shoulders and it was a lot longer than I remembered it being and I was TRIPPING over it walking around the house (I remember it being around my calves). Anyway, I hope that gives people a little perspective. :)

WOW WOW WOW.

I don't even know what to say. What an experience that must have been. I think I may have to venture down that road sometime soon in my future.

PS- Go Yankees! (Noticed the Expos hat... you really are a Montreal fan!)

Holy! Well these are pictures you can refer to if anyone ever decides to "doubt" your success!

Power to ya sista!

I have a bridesmaids dress I wore October 2005 (270lbs) that I will "model" when I get to goal.

I would never get rid of the dress.

wowza!!!You have lost more than a whole person, crazy!!! You still looked good because you were smiling and happy and that's what matters. Thanks for the comments on my blog I appreciate it, my day is better just made some roasted red peppers and salmon on the BAR B Q, it is finally nicer here in Montreal, lets's hope it stays
have a great day and keep that dress as a reminder of how far you have come :)

Amazing - you really don't look at all the same! Even your face is so different.

Now that, my friend, is validation!

what awesome before and after pictures!

I think you did look good at your prom. You might've been bigger but that color looks great on you in the before and the after pictures.

I was heavier in high school too, I was a size 14 back in the day.
