Well, I’ve always been…thin, but I’m not fit nor am I healthy. I’ve been trying to get the motivation to get up and get fit so I can look toned on my wedding day. My fiance is a Marine and so he works out all the time, he is very active, and he looks amazing….I look NOTHING like that. I’m an animator so I sit in front of a computer all day and it shows. I feel a lot of presure to look the way I think a bride should look and it’s tough. Tomorrow I’m starting insanity because I’m finally done with college and I can put effort into getting in shape! I say that I’ll start working out all the time and never do so my FI has his doubts, but I REALLY want to surprise him the day of the wedding…and the honeymoon which will be taking place on a cruise! I have never been on a cruise before, but I know that I can’t hide anything in a bikini!

As my FI always tell me, he put the ring on my finger because he loves me. All of me. As does your FI. If he didn’t find you attractive he wouldn’t still be with you and most definitely wouldn’t have given you a ring. 

I know what its like but when he says this it does help. Your day will be wonderful and you’ll look wonderful.

While I understand how frustrating it is to put in all the effort on exercise and not lose weight,  size 12 is really not big at all! I’m not certain but thays pretty much average size in the US, right? 


I’m sure you have already heard the saying that weight loss is 80% diet and 20% exercise, and its true! Although I used to have a pretty healthy diet, I was putting on weight, even though I had salads for lunch, fruit and yoghurt for snacks etc, but its the things you don’t even think about that add the pounds – a biscuit here, a handful of nuts there, and portion sizes are crucial. I would have a bowl full of cereal or oatmeal, which is the equvalent of like 4 servings depending on bowl size!

ETA: I’m bigger than my FI too. We are about the same height, but he’s about 140lb soaking wet. I’m about 145
