Awww I amm sure you look hot!

Our perceptions of self can become distorted over time when we are constantly dieting. Stop checking your weight and relax 🙂

yes! since Feb I have been trying to lose all the weight I gained last year due to an injury which meant I couldn’t go to the gym, was in a lot of pain and just sat at home and ate and drank wine to feel better! I put at least 15lbs probably more (I never used to weight myself because I was totally happy with how I looked – oh how I miss those days!!!!).  I had always thought that when I recovered from my injury then I’d just go back to the gym, work out and eat healthy just like before and the weight would come off just as easily as it went on.  Well six months later and I have lost 6 lbs.  Not even half of what I gained. I have had to go and buy clothes in a bigger size and I am really really trying so hard now to lose a little more weight but you know what? It just aint gonna happen.  I think our bodies have a preset equilibrium and when you hit a certain age (I’m in my 30’s now) if something messes it up, you can never get down to below that without starving yourself – which I’m not prepared to do! I love my food!!  And a taught, toned tummy and thighs?? I will NEVER have those again – and as women we’re not supposed to!!!  All those photos in magazines are airbrushed!  We are SUPPOSED to have fat deposits in those places, that is natural and healthy, it is just society and anorexic models making us think that it isn’t.

So the reality is, you have done your best, like you said you look amazing in your dress, you don’t want to become too thin, it just isn’t a good look, so embrace your healthiness, be thankful that you rock your dress, and enjoy your wedding day!

@littleG:Sometimes when you have a really hard time losing anymore weight, it is your body’s way of telling you that you are already at a healthy weight.

Sounds like you need to change your perception of yourself.  Your Fiance loves you, so you must love yourself.  If you are not fully satisfied, try doing treadmill sprints 2-3 times weekly.  I see results pretty quickly.  I do them for 30 minutes on 2.5 incline.  Alternate between 1 minute sprint ( I do 5.0-5.0 mph) and 3 minutes walk (2.0).  It may give you the extra push you need and it is also a stress reliever…..

Don’t worry, remember muscle weighs more then fat, so you can be heavier but in fact look thinner if you’re toned…if you really need to cut out more weight,  go easy on carbs as they tend to bloat your stomach and also do some xtra cardio…it always worked for me…I know how you feel I used to go tothe gym all of the time before my ankle started acting up…so 20+ later I am struggling to lose the weight before my big day 1/1/12!…Good Luck!
