I’ve done this before getting married so it’s not because I’m married, but I go through periods where I eat what I want when I want and I don’t feel a tad guilty for it. I know I will get back on the wagon when I’m ready, but right now I’m at least pretty bloated 3 weeks after.

Haha since we got married 5 months ago I’ve probably gone the other way… found a job, returned to uni, admitted we’re terrible at cooking so signed up for a meal delivery service rather than constantly giving up and relying on takeaways 😉  I actually wish I was this happy in the lead up to the wedding 😉

yumcheez:  Agreed about the water weight, but when you’re short (I’m 5’1″), 2 lbs after controlling for the water weight is pretty noticeable.

To answer the question, no, we are physically healthier now! I’ve started working out regularly for the first time in my life, and I feel so much better. Less stress, and even my allergies are better. We don’t diet, but we try to eat more “clean”, nonprocessed foods. Overall, these lifestyle changes are not based on physical appearance, but more on health maintenance/disease prevention. We want to enjoy our time together as long as possible! 🙂 I am guilty of slacking on the makeup though!

yumcheez:  when you weigh what I do, 2lbs is noticeable. I like to be around 119lbs ideally, it the weight I’m most comfortable at, plus it’s my healthiest weight in terms of eating and exercise habits. If it starts creeping up to 122 and beyond it is always because a) I’m eating badly and b) I’m not exercising. It can be water weight (I know the foods that cause this so won’t weight myself if I know I’m carrying water weight), but sometimes it is actual gain, as it is in this case; I’ve simply been eating too much, and expending too little. I’m certainly not obsessive about my weight, if that’s what your implying and to be honest, I think it’s a shame that we seem to be criticising people like me who aim to maintain a healthy weight, and then act like it’s cool to be massively overweight. 

I am SO glad I’m the weight I am, but that does mean making sure I eat healthily and exercise; I’m not just magically this weight. Perhaps if more people did like I do and actually weighed themselves and watched what they ate, you’d have fewer people going ‘the weight just crept on!’ or ‘Suddenly I was obese!’ and having to lose 100lbs instead of 100lvs, and of course we would not have such a shocking number of people who are overweight or obese…

I gained about 5 lbs during the honeymion but have taken it off since we got back. Still not at my ideal weight though but I’m at where I was prewedding. DH and I like to stay active and are training for a half marathon so nothing really changed for us. DH gained like 15 lbs post weddding but had already lost 5 of that.

Overjoyed:  I’m glad you’re finding ways to make the situation work for you! It can be hard watching someone you love be unhealthy, especially when they make lots of delicious things haha. Hopefully he’ll come around.
