@chocolatecoveredstrawberry: As a fitness professional, I think it’s great you want to lose weight, but do it because it will make you healthier, and improve your quality of life.
Would it be ideal to look more perfect at your wedding? Yes. But there’s nothing wrong with being overweight; it does not affect your value as a person. It does not affect the fact that your fiancé wants to marry you. It does not change the fact that this will be one of the best days of your life.
If your dress fits properly (and apparently it does) you’ll look great. You’re going to be the most beautiful thing he’s ever seen. There are three weeks left and the most you could safely lose would be 4.5 lbs.
Excellent flow chart for dealing with stuff that pisses you off:
Can you control the problem?
So stop worrying about it. So stop worrying about it.

@chocolatecoveredstrawberry: How about losing weight for the rest of your life, not for the one day people are celebrating you and your soon to be husband?

@chocolatecoveredstrawberry: I just re-read my comment above and realized it sounded rude – what I meant to say was, your wedding day isnt the day to stress about it. Everyone will be there to witness your love, and celebrating you. Stress about it later for health reasons, not picture reasons. You’re going to look beautiful regardless of how much you weigh. Because happiness is beauty, and you will obviously be thrilled the day you marry your man!!

- Wedding: July 2013 - Rock Hill Country Club, Manorville NY
I’m not as thin as I’d have liked to be for my wedding, also 5’6″, between 16 and 18, but I realized the other day, while this may not be the thinnest I’ve ever been, it’s the happiest I’ve ever been, so what more could I ask for?
