I’m sure you looked absolutely radiant on your wedding day, but I also understand being upset at the pictures.

I’ve struggled with my weight my entire life and the only two times I’ve successfully lost weight were wedding related motivation (for my own and for a friend’s (I was sick of being the Bridesmaid or Best Man in the largest size dress)).

I now find my motivation to be healthy – not for a wedding, but for my husband.  I’d be lying if I didn’t want to be the ‘hot wife’, but the deeper issue is to be my healthiest self for our partnership.

I think you hit on something key in your post:  it’s not so much about being thin (like when you were yet had eating disorders), it’s about being healthy.  

Everyone is one their own journey and maybe the wedding pictures will be your catalyst for making healthier choices for the future…. and then you will look back at those pictures and see how far you’ve come vs. the other way around (which is common for many people, I’m sure).
