i lost a bit of weight (about 10lbs) before the wedding, working out about 3-5 times a week depending on the work week, and then came the all inclusive honeymoon. i gained about 5-6 pounds, and at this point i dont care too much about it, but i would like to get back into my workout routine, but work is a bit hectic now. so im shooting for Oct 1st as my “get back on the wagon” day.

Ah, yep…here’s my timeline
Sept 30, 2009: Proposed to, my wt was ~200lb.s
Oct 1, 2009: start going to the gym for 2hours a day, 5 days a week. Also, eating “well” on weekdays, while leaving weekends to eat whatever I wanted (I think this is why I was able to stay on the wagon).
March 2010: 43lb.s lost, (158). In car accident and unable to work out for two months.
August 27th, 2010 (day before wedding) 157lb.s
Wedding day, August 28th, 2010: 159lb.s
One week honeymoon: gained 7lb.s!
Now, 3 weeks out, I’ve probably gained back 10lb.s total. My clothes are tighter, and I feel like crap. I had promised myself 2 months off from the gym to enjoy the fall weather, and ride my wedding-neglected-horses (it’s hard to ride after work each night when you’re getting up at 3:30am for the gym) but I feel so crappy that it’s hard to make myself find motivation to do anything. My only hope is that I know I need to get my horses in shape for a cattle round-up in Wyoming next month!
If you find any motivation tips, let me know! I don’t want to get back to where I was pre wedding!

I lost about 10lbs for the wedding and I am pretty damn positive I have gained it back but we moved across the country and threw out our scale so I cant say for sure. I dont really mind if I did though, I am proud of myself for losing it for the wedding and I know if I needed to I could do it again.

I lost about 15 pounds prior to the wedding and managed to gain 4 back during our all-inclusive honeymoon. However, now that I’m doing more than lounging by a pool and have gone back to my “I will refrain from eating everything in sight” diet, I suspect some of it will come back off.

Yep! Not a lot but just enough for me to feel upset with myself. I was never super slim but I always kept half an eye on my weight. I toned up just before the wedding and that’s all gone too. So I’m starting to do lots of activities around the house and making sure that I keep active during the day instead of just vegging out with DH on the sofa.

I’ve gained about 4 consistent lbs since the wedding – which is pissing me off. I’m definitely running more (further, faster and more consistenly) and truly feel I’m eating the same as always (I even take photos of everything I eat so I have an accurate record!)….but the number keeps going up! I did just come off the pill, and I’e heard some people gain and some lose. I didn’t gaining going ON, so I must be one of those that gains going OFF. Boo!!

Between an all inclusive honeymoon with amazing food, traveling for about 6 weeks for work this summer, and spending more time hanging out with friends I gained about 10 lbs since our May wedding. For the past month I’ve been tracking what I eat (livestrong myplate) and started exercising again (I even got the man to start running with me!) and I’ve lost about 5 of that. It’s been such a struggle though. When I’m not traveling I just want to hang out at home. I’m determined to lose a few more pounds to avoid the yearly creep. Good luck to everyone who’s starting to work out/ eat right again!

I didn’t try to lose weight before the wedding, so just in general, I’ve gained weight since the wedding. I was visiting my parents this weekend and hopped on their scale and was downright shocked.
It’s a number I’ve never seen before, ever, so I’m definitely motivated. Trying to start the gym thing again tonight. Ugh.

so I am not the only bad newlywed that gain weight right away.. I went (dragged) to gym twice this week .. and I was sitting in front of hub changing my shirt at home… u know how belly pop out more when you sit.. he said.. u need to do something to ur midsection.. 🙁
sigh I know..
I know what keeps me motivated though.. read Shape magazine.. it just keeps the message in my head that I have to watch out what i eat and hit the gym…

@Popples:Are you sure your not gaining muscle mass? It sounds like you’re keeping yourself fit and healthy but if the number keeps going up don’t forget that muscles weigh more than fat! Also, adorable name. My popple is in the attic in a box somewhere 🙂 I loved it.

I was so strict before the wedding that I’ve been eating everything in sight since! It’s been about 6 weeks so it’s time to be good again. The funny thing is I haven’t gained much because we’re TTC so I’m not really drinking. It’s balanced out the desserts!

Ick, I think so! An all inclusive for a week? Enough said!

all inclusive honeymoon for 10 days led to a 4 pound weight gain 2 weeks post wedding! I was down about 5 lbs. pre-wedding though so it’S kind of like being back to normal but not a normal I like.

I was losing a lot before, not in a bad way, I needed to. I lost from trying, and then lost because of surgery & radioactive iodine treatment for thyroid cancer. After the wedding, I think I’ve gained about 20 pounds! I definitely started trying to lose the weight again!

I didn’t necessarily lose any weight before the wedding (I’ve always gone to the gym and whatnot) but during the wedding week and then during our honeymoon/month off from the gym from traveling/moving/other vacations I gained a little over 10 pounds. Awful. I started going to the gym, but didn’t have a job yet, so most of the day I would sit around and eat.
I’m now back down to my pre-wedding weight though. I think having a job that requires me running around on my feet for 9 hours a day helped get my weight back down!
