My weight is not a concern to me, I’m very athletic. However, I really don’t take much care with my hair/eyebrows/skin/nails, so I’m more trying to get all that stuff looking good. We all have blind spots 🙂 (also I’m terrified about choosing makeup because my standard made up look is basically chapstick and eyeliner.

I’m not trying to lose weight for my wedding per say. Weight has been an ongoing struggle for me as of late so I’m trying to lose weight for my health and my future. The wedding will just be a bonus!

I am refusing to even contemplate the idea of ttrying to loose weight for my wedding. From the very first wedding magazine I read which was so full of when you should start weight loss and even had plastic surgery adverts in?! (Because of you’re going to do it you should do it right. .. that was the genuine tag line for the surgery advert) I have been conducting my own one woman protest against the assumption that my wedding will only be the best day of my life (I seriously hope it isn’t or it’s going to be a long journey from wedding to death) if I ruin the run up to it dieting and worrying that I won’t be stick insect thin. So I say BRING ON THE PIES! Sorry. .. got a bit ranty 🙂

I’m a size 8, too, and this is a healthy size for me, but I have been smaller. I am a little over a year out from the wedding. I decided to make healthy changes not for the wedding, but bc we are going to try to have kids fairly soon after getting married and I want to be in the best shape possible for my pregnancy and have lots of healthy habits established. 🙂 I wouldn’t mind if I dropped 5-10 lbs before the wedding though.

I went from a size 6 to a size 2 and I’m really glad I put in the effort.
You see your biggest results in the first two months-I say go for it!

If you’re happy with your weight and just want to get toned, then do strength training. You may actually gain weight because muscle weighs more than fat, but you’ll look better overall. I did strength and cardio training before my wedding and lost a lot of weight, gained muscle, and felt great about myself. My photos are stunning! I’m definitely glad I did it, and now I just wish I had stuck with it post-wedding. I’m pregnant now so taking it a little easier. I can’t wait to return to my normal routine post-baby.

I dont want to loose weight, I want to get toned. The problem is sticking to the exercise routines when there is so much stress of wedding planning and trying to loose weight will add negatively because we are our worst critics. Whatever happens just enjoy your big day and make healthy living part of your happy being which is Not dependant on the scale reading.
All the best.

About 4 months before my wedding I started a Couch-to-5K running program, and I’m so happy I did! I was so proud as I felt my stamina improving and my body getting a little more toned. Also my husband and I stopped having carbs with dinner most nights. I lost about 10 pounds, and gained back 4 or 5 lol, but next weekend I’m going to start running again, and my goal is to be able to run at least a 10K. The wedding was good motivation to get a little healthier.

If you wouldn’t put in the effort without the wedding, I don’t see much point in doing it specifically for the wedding since it likely won’t be a permanent change.

Very much so. I lost 25lb last spring when I knew Fiance was going to propose, and I’ve gained about 10lb back since then. My ultimate goal from where I am now is 50lb lighter by next May. I’ve started today actually and will be working out 5 times a week starting this week. I’m really hoping it is attainable, I planned on doing this last year but final year of schooling got in the way.
