Girl, from your description I was expecting the Michelin Man. You look great! Stop being so hard on yourself. If you don’t feel well at your current weight, then go ahead and lead a healthier lifestyle, but based on how you look, you are lovely.

@selena12312: You have most beautiful features and you both look very happy and very much in love -those things I noticed. I didn’t read the replies before looking at the photos so I too was expecting something else.. The others are right, you are your worst critic.

I couldn’t not post after reading how down you feel about your appearance. As women we are often the hardest on ourselves and so very critical of every perceived flaw. Having lived through some challenging times in recent years I am realising that Life is so very short and it’s a shame to be so hard on ourselves.
Do you know what I see when I look at your pictures? A stunning woman, so obviously in love. You have the most amazing cheekbones and lovely defined jawline. Your skin colour is beautiful and your eyes sparkle in the photos. I had to look closely to see why you would identify as plus sized.
Be kind to yourself! xx

@selena12312: Oh sweety, firstly, you look amazing, and no one is going to look at you and see anything but how pretty you look and how happy you are.
But as someone who is a horrible critic of themselves, I can understand your feelings. You do not look anywhere near as bad as you think you do, you look lovely.
You managed to lose 190! That’s amazing, and you can lose these extra 30, that’s pretty much nothing compared to what you have done! Also, it’s not just lazy, it’s baby weight, that’s a pain but it’s unavoidable, it happens. You can get these 30 off, take this as motivation, and I’m sure when you look back on these pictures, you’ll be able to say “I wish I wasn’t quite as big, but damn do I look happy and so pretty!”

I had a similar reaction when I first saw our engagement pictures. I am used to looking at pictures of myself when I was 15-20 lbs. skinnier. But I picked out a few that didn’t emphasize those things that were bugging me, posted and printed those, and now they are growing on me.
Your photographer did a wonderful job with the pictures. Pick the ones that emphasize your gorgeous face and downplay the parts that are bothering you. I think you have plenty to choose from. Print those out or post them online, and concentrate on the ones that make you feel pretty. Forget about the others. Whenever you have pictures taken, there are always going to be some you don’t care for.

You look beautiful! I’m sure the baby weight will come off in time. Even if it doesn’t, you’ve got great curves and will look awesome in your wedding dress:)

I second all the ‘girl you cray cray’- honestly I think you look fantastic, and I agree with @solidarity: the way that your fiance looks at you is so touching!
I understand being unhappy with yourself and having body image issues (I am like the stay-pufft marshmallow woman, size 22 here) BUT YOU LOST A PERSON ALREADY! That is deserving of some serious pride and self love in my book! It’s okay to let it motivate you, but never let it keep you down! Your fiance clearly loves you to pieces just the way you are 🙂

@selena12312: first off you are gorgeous, and your Fiance clearly adores you, you can see it right on his face! you carry your weight very well, but I know how hard it can be when you feel like you have extra weight “sitting” on you. try to relax about it and make some small changes and goal, they are easier to acheive!
