Staying motivated is hard when it involves changing your habits – whether that means eating less, eating more, eating healthier, exercising, or whatever. Involving other people in the process has really helped me – having your fiance or close friend keep you accountable makes a big difference. 

Have you tried supplementing your meals with drinks like boost or ensure? I was really sick a few years ago and tried that to keep my weight on…I personally think ensure is pretty gross, but boost has some really tasty shakes that taste just like chocolate milk. I even went for slimfast as well…it seems counter intuitive, but if you use it to supplement a meal instead of replacing a meal, its an easy way to take in more calories.

I’m actually toning up my arms too for the wedding!  Is that the only exercise you do?  If you’re trying to gain some weight, I’d cut out massive amounts of cardio.  I’ve got a tiny build as well, and doing too much cardio makes me loose weight I shouldnt’ be.

Good luck!

Well you’re definitely not going to gain weight by skipping meals 🙂 Keep really easy to eat snacks around (baby carrots, grapes, a granola bar) that way you can munch all day.  If you’re skipping meals, you’re burning WAY more calories during your workout then you’re taking in.
