I want to be 130 for my wedding also. Granted my wedding is still a year away so I have alot of time. I think you will be able to do it before your wedding in August but it will take some serious discipline!

It can be hard! I weigh around the same as you do and want to be 130 before my wedding. Everyone says I look fine and dont need to drop the weight but I think I will feel more conforatble if I lose the weight.

What kind of workouts do you do? Are you dieting right now?

I came home from my 1st dress fitting and cried about how I looked. In the end the weight loss battle for me was a little futile and it didn’t pan out but I know Darling Husband thought I looked beautiful. Good luck!

I might be one of the only girls I know that is 100% happy with their body. I am by no means perfect. I’m a size 8-10. I have big hips or “baby-making hips” as my Fiance calls them. My boobs aren’t huge, only a 36 B and I weigh around 140 and I’m 5’4. But I don’t want to crash diet and get chubby again 2 weeks later. I like to eat. I like to go out and I walk on the tread mill maybe twice a week for a half hour to help my circulation. I am just not one of those who buy into society’s view on what is beautiful.

Now I wouldn’t mind if I was only 120 and about 2 inches taller. But I’m not and I’m unhappy where I’m at. Just embrace your curves, your rolls and your cellulite. Confidence is more beautiful than anything.

@JM1217:  I love your comment! This is exactly what I needed to see today.. I’m 5’4, and in general, I feel pretty good about myself.. I have 38 inch hips and a 33 inch bust, but for some reason just beat myself up that I’m not busting my butt trying to ‘lose’ (because it seems like everyone else is doing it, so why am I so lazy!).. but I’m NOT lazy, I work out, run marathons, do body pump, spin, yoga, eat pretty great.. but still, the gerbils. I’ll never be 115 lbs, and my mermaid dress is going to be filled out with womanly curves.  So thank you, because I, and I’m sure quite a few more of us, really appreciate your comment and your own self confidence:) (I just came home from trying on clothes and spent a chunk of the day harping on my hips, so thank you, thank you:)

Absolutely right, OP, good luck with your weight loss goals, but even loving yourself now, is key to happiness even once you reach that goal:)

Now if we can all have the secrets to self love, not the self loathe:)

I’ve learned to just love my body. I’m about 30 lbs overweight still (180, 5’8″, street size 12), but I’m in fantastic cardiovascular and muscular shape. If I lose more weight, great, but I long ago shifted the focus to being healthy. For me, that’s much easier to control. I have a much easier time when my focus is on the quality of the food I eat and on exercise than when it’s on how much I’m eating and whether my exercise is enough to create the proper net calorie intake. So what if there was absolutely no way to prevent a little bit of back chub with my dress and if my stomach isn’t perfectly smooth when I wear a bikini. I know I have rock solid abs under all the fluff and that I’ve got guns, even if they’re concealed by a lovely insulating layer of softness. My Darling Husband loves me the way I am and my family and friends are there to see us be happy, not to judge my body. I’ve had a much healthier relationship with myself since I changed my perspective, and it’s made me more successful with weightloss too. I maybe lost 4 or 5 lbs in the 9 months between getting engaged and getting married, but I dind’t set out to. I just kept being healthy and letting my body do its thing.
