This idea just randomly came to me while watching Four Weddings (I LOVE Four Weddings). Since the wedding, I have gained a bit of weight and although I’m pretty ashamed of it I have really been working on losing it. Besides my health and looking great, I have found the perfect motivation to lose weight….
I was really disappointed with our wedding photographer and I didn’t get any beautiful bridal portraits. So I was thinking that once I reach my goal weight, I will hire another photographer and do some really great bridal portraits. It is a wonderful excuse to wear my dress again, a way to get the shots that I missed and for me the best motivation to lose weight!
I’m so excited about this that I’m going to work super hard now to lose weight 😛
Has anyone else done something similar? Would you consider doing bridal portraits after the wedding?

I like your plan. I didn’t do bridal portraits, but I did a boudiour photo shoot for our one year, and that kept me very motivated!

@mylittleviolett: That’s a great idea!
My motivation right now is our tropical vacation in November. If I’m going to be running around in a bikini I want to look good! After that maybe I’ll book some pictures for our 1st anniversary to keep me motivated 🙂

I got pregnant on the honeymoon–a pretty good reason not to lose weight, but to continue to eat super-healthily and exercise!
I’m 17 weeks and have only gained 3.5lbs!
