So typically during the course of your engagement you lose weight and try to get super fit. Somehow on my end, the stress has caused me to gain 25 pounds throughout the process.. Clearly with my wedding less than 2 weeks away, there’s nothing I can do to erase all of that but I’m just wondering if anyone else had the same problem and what did you do to ease your mind of it?? It’s something I think about all day long….
I’m so afraid that I’m gonna look at my pictures and hate them all for the rest of my life because I let myself get to this point…

Sadly I have done this to myself. I figured I would loose weight to look great in my graduation pictures and bought a dress a size down to try and encourage me. Sadly I instead gained 20 some odd pounds and was very heavy and I looked so in pictures.
I didn’t let it get me too down. No one really cares or is going to say anything. I put on a different dress and marched out there and had fun/got my diploma.
Just try to take your mind off of it and maybe in the mean time work out a little. It weirdly could help take off the stress. Then you could focus on how people will see you after the wedding. I wouldn’t let this get you down though that will just make the situation worse. Trust me I know. I didnt get up off my butt to take this weight off until two years later and at that point I was almost 40 pounds heavier than I was when I had tried to start losing weight for graduation.

i def didn’t like the weight i was at when i got married one year ago. I don’t HATE my pics but I do get a little mad that I didn’t try harder to lose the weight. Really don’t beat yourself up over it. You are gonna look beautiful no matter what!

I’m 4 days out and I was going to lose sooo much weight. I’ve lost about 5 pounds and just don’t have the willpower to stop eating unhealthy food even though everything in me is telling me that I should be able to stop at least for a week.

omg, that happened to me. I had a personal trainer and i was going to the gym and eating right, but then I got into a car accident about 2 weeks before my wedding and I couldn’t work out/ barely walk and I started embracing my fatty food cravings to help me de-stress. I literally could barely fit in my dress. In fact, my wedding planner had to come unzip it for me when I sat down. but, i still think the pictures came out fine. if i could do it again, i would have told myself to suck it up until after my wedding. but things happen, and sometimes you just have to go with the flow. just try on your dress about a week b4 the wedding to make sure it still fits and you’ll be fine 🙂
