    Is this for real?

    If it is, I feel bad that you have such an unhealthy relationship with your body.

    None of the above. I wanted to look like my very best self, whatever my weight may be.

    I would think I’d want to look normal, but everyone carries their weight differently.  I guess what I’d really be aiming for is looking healthy.

    sunrisepassion:  Well I am 5″4 and 122 lbs. Most people consider me to be quite thin. If you actually believe that in order to look good on your wedding day you need to drop below 115 lbs, at your height, then I think you need to give your head a shake.

    I want to look like me. What’s the point of starving yourself to be ‘super skinny’ for the sake of one day when you’re not going to be like that any other day for the rest of forever? Wouldn’t you rather be able to recognise yourself in the photos?

    I want to FEEL beautiful and happy and however anyone else wants to perceive my looks is really none of my business.

    None of the above.  I wanted to look and more importantly FEEL my best.  I tried not to pay too much attention to the number on the scale.  

    Also, please be careful when assuming that a certain height and weight are normal….5’3″ and 115 might be YOUR normal, but it isn’t everyone’s.

    PS: I have had body image issues my whole life and the wedding dress thing REALLY exacerbated those issues leading to me buying a too small dress and telling myself that I would only be a beautiful enough bride if I could fit into that dress. I learned from that really no one cares about it as much as you do and if you focus on what you think is external pressure you’ll never be happy. The greatest feeling I’ve experienced of this whole wedding planning process was slipping on a dress that fit and flattered my body as is and being able to feel like if I don’t lose a pound or an inch I’ll still feel great on my wedding day. I wish that for you too.

    I want to look happy and like myself.  Yes, i’m currently over weight and I have been working to drop some of that weight, but that is for my health, not my wedding.  Dropping that low will not make anyone look good.  It will probably make you feel angry and hungry, and no one looks good like that.

    Please, no, no intentionally making ourselves “SUPER skinny”, okay? Be healthy and happy, people.

    5’3″ and 100lbs is a BMI of 17.7 which is considered NOT healthy. If you happen to be that size and there is no amount of food you can eat to change that (I know people like that), so be it. But if that’s not your body type, don’t make yourself sick.

    I am actually about your same high and 30 lbs heavier than you. I don’t want to be any smaller on that for my wedding day because that is who I am, I don’t want to look back at the pictures and see a tiny stranger smiling back at me – I want to see the me that I have always known and loved looking back! FI and I both agreed to no dieting before the wedding so that we can be our happy beautiful selves… you also never know if it’ll backfire on you and you’ll look deathly ill in your wedding dress.
