It’s been 2 and a half months for me too and I’ve gained about 5-6 lbs.  I don’t even know how either because since after the wedding I’ve cut out coffee, pop, energy drinks, and most chocolate out of my diet (due to medical reasons not personal choice–trust me) and I still gained the weight! What the heck!

Meeeeee. I’ve gained about 8 pounds.

My pants don’t fit and I’m being a baby and lamenting to everyone who’ll listen.

My mom said I looked CHUBBY this past weekend. Dude…8 pounds…i’m 5’11”, it’s not THAT noticeable. Sheesh.

But still, mis pantalones don’t fit. Can’t deny that. Needles to say, I’m on a diet, I’m strictly listening to my nutritionist/dietician, and I’m hitting the gym 4 days a week so I can lose it in the next month.

You’re not alone =]. I’ts easy to say “omg i can have cake now!” and overdo it.

I gained a ton after the wedding   Embarassed  I went from just about the skinniest I’ve been in years to the biggest (for sure) I’ve ever been

maybe this is where the saying ‘fat and happy’ comes from, but I really resent mean joking that I better no let myself go, and also commenting on how I chopped my hair off (it was a planned donation to locks of love)  luckily my Darling Husband supports me 100%!

I’m up about 10 lbs since the wedding.  I haven’t been working out and some food has caught up with me over the past 6 months.  Haven’t really been dieting much because it’s hard to plan out meals and everything.  I’m still trying to get into the habit of making food.

My husband doesn’t even see the 8 pounds, or so he says. I think he lies to me to make me feel better =]. Then again, we ARE hardest on ourselves. I just want to stop it before it ends up being 15 pounds…or 20….then i DO have to buy new pants. Oye vez.

@fallflowers, your hubs is right. When you feel good about it, you do better and your goal is easier to reach. However, I always think it takes at least a week for me to get in the groove of things. I’m still in that “bloated, icky phase” from thanksgiving. Not to mention a surprise birthday party SAturday night in which copious amounts of chili, junk food, beer, and cake were involvd.

Right now all i want to do is go home and jump on a machine!

I’ve gained 6 since the wedding, tryign to keep it off between a new job/travel/holidays has been rough.  consider me a FAIL.

It’s hard to keep the pressure on yourself when the pressure has been lifted!

Here!  It’s been 2 1/2 months and 5-7 lbs for me too.  I noticed that my stomach looked a little softer a few weeks ago but didn’t think anything of it until I stepped on the scale and got a bigger number than I have EVER seen for myself.  My pants still fit but ever since Thanksgiving I have had a perma-foodbaby.  Not ok.  

So today at lunch I took the dogs for a walk.  It wasn’t a long one but I took them out one at a time so that I had to go twice as far.  I feel much better now.  Don’t feel like you have to jump in and go work out at the gym hard for 2 hours to make a difference.  Even my 15-20 minute walk really helped and is going to make it easier to get back into the habit of exercising.

Ejs, you are right.  Women are a lot harder on themselves than the men.  My husband doesn’t notice any changes though he says my butt shrunk, not sure how that happened when the rest of me gained haha.

I feel better knowing I’m not alone, even though I’m sorry we’re all bumming in the first place!

I made it a goal last night to do pilates twice a week. It did a lot for my squishy stomach and back in the months leading up to the wedding and of course, it’s where it magically sprung back to.

Funny how 5 or 10 doesn’t look like much on paper, but it makes a very noticeable impact on your body, right? At least enough for you to notice yourself….and in my case, enough for 5 sets of pants to not even be able to close around my tummy.

@ejs: I was thinking the same thing, 5 lbs doesn’t seem like a lot at first but when I am trying to get my pants up over my butt it sure seems like a lot! So depressing.

Boo for squishy tummies.

You’re not alone!  I gained about 8 pounds since my wedding, 2 of which I’ve lost.  So it’s been a little over 6 months and I’m up 6 pounds.  I lost a lot of weight right towards the wedding, I think because I was so busy and stressed.
