Nope! I was comfortable with my weight, as was my husband, so I wasn’t trying to lose. Honestly, there was so much going on with wedding planning it would have been hard and stressful to try to lose weight at the same time! And I feel like some brides set themselves goals about losing weight before the wedding and then get all stressed out about it if they don’t meet their goals. And I think you look amazing, as is, so I wouldn’t put another stress on your plate!

@marinewife4:  Thank you. Yup that wedding dress does wonders for my waist line. It is definitely time to do something so why not use my wedding as an excuse to get my butt in shape.

I wasn’t really going to try to lose weight, but my dress will fit absolutely perfectly with no alterations if I just drop a couple inches from my waist. Plus I’d really like to tone up my arms so they don’t look flabby in all of the photos. So i’m just going to work on eating healthy and toning up, but not really “dieting”

I lost 30 lbs since last year.  I was really just trying to tone up but the weight just came off (and I’m not any toner lol).  My dress that fit perfectly that I bought last year, now slides down and I’ll need alterations SIGH.  I was trying to tone up my thighs (which are always my problem area) so that I wouldn’t need alterations, but like I said the weight just slid off and now I need it taken in definitely on top and the bodice.  It’s a lace dress that is really heavy.  I would hate to have a wardrobe malfunction on my wedding day!

I agree with other bees – if you want to lose weight, do it as part of a permanent lifestyle change, and just use the wedding as inspiration! Yo-yo or crash dieting definitely isn’t healthy. You already look great if you decide not to, but I know that I feel best when I’m actively exercising and eating right. 

I’m hoping to lose 10-15 lbs for my wedding, but I already exercise regularly. It’s love of food and wine that prevents results for me 🙂

Sometimes it’s just about paying attention to which foods are compatible with your body, since everyone is different. For example, I don’t gain weight on white rice and meats, even if I eat larger portions three times a day. However, I do gain weight when I eat a lot of breads, pastas, dairy, and fat. I also notice that I get palpitations and headaches when I eat a large portion of very sweet desert (cake, pastries). While I don’t necessarily believe in the blood type diet, I think it’s worth looking at the foods that your ancestors were accustomed to, and “listening” to how your body responds to what you’re putting in it.
