Before I got engaged, I used to watch all of those fitness and weight loss shows. Never phased me.
After, however, I managed to catch an episode of Bulging Brides – a show where girls who can’t fit into their dresses are made to try them on on national tv and a fitness instructor tells them about their back fat and their waist and jesus. It’s brutal!
Now? I went and found a good longline bra to go under my dress. First thing I inspect? Back fat. I swear. Vanity in my life has gone up ten fold since the engagement. It’s annoying.
Anybody else experiencing the same thing? I know I gotta hit the gym, but man…
Who woulda thought my major concern in a day would be back fat? Especially when so much other stuff in the world is wrong.

Haha …. Too funny. I can relate though! Now that I am in the wedding planning, I am busy with all that, but that also reminds me how much I need to work out!

I’m not so much concerned with back fat as I am with my gut and flabby arms.

This is not unusual I think- it’s one of the most important days of your life and the one that you will be photographed more than you ever will be in one day again…….you want to look at the pictures and love them not be critiquing yourself and you want to feel like a million bucks on your big day. I say get yourself fit and healthy and try to loose the weight so you feel confident on your wedding day but also invest in some spanx because they are awesome!

This is going to sound completely awful – but I’m going there anyway
When I saw some pictures from my friend’s wedding, she looked absolutely gorgeous in person, but the pictures showed some . . . arm flab. Maybe it was just the angle, but all I could think was “up those push-ups STAT!”.
So yeah, my inner narcissist is definitely running rampant.

OMG I am so with you! I have always been super anal about my weight, but now I’m getting into researching glycolic peels, etc so that my skin looks perfect too. I’m actually going in for botox today to see how I like it (there is enough time before my july wedding for it to wear off) and want to get it for the wedding!

The first thing I checked for when I tried on my dress was back cleavage (when you have a dress bust which is too tight and you end up with “cleavage” on your spine from wearing a dress one size too small). I also lost 20lbs and bought every facial product on the market. I went crazy with it!

It’s not the wedding dress that stresses me out, it’s the honeymoon. Two weeks in a bikini on a beach?! ACK! Must get rid of tummy ASAP!

i could not wear a bikini in my wildest dreams! ahahaha…i just pictured myself in a bikini. I like my two piece tankini; problem solved! 😀
More power to you ladies who can. it is amazing to me to be able to keep yourself in good enough shape to feel comfortable in something like that. Congrats!
