Sorry you are getting these insensitive comments, esp from ppl who really have no place to talk! I hate fad diets and drastic weight loss! I’m allergic to the word DIET,,,,Just hate, hate that word! All the happens is you put it back on tenfold if you are not doing it for the right reasons and if it’s only for a ‘special’ day. I’ll admit, I want to look great on my wedding day, but at the same time I want to become a healthier person in general. As of a few days ago, I’ve cut back on carbs and have started going to the gym for light work outs….has my wedding got anything to do with that? Yes, it gave me incentive to change my habits, is it the sole reason? NO! Is it any one else’s business how big or small I am? No!

My mum told me she prefers me 12 pounds lighter, fair enough she is my mum, I prefer myself 24 pounds lighter because I’ll be at my natural weight (I’ve put it on since moving to Dubai)…but that want to change has to come from ME and no one else!……When I am obese and having serious health issues, then I may accept CLOSE people’s opinions. Until then, it’s MY CHOICE AND MY LIFE! And I will look great as I am now, 12 pounds lighter or 12 pounds heavier on my big day!

@PacificMrs:  It’s interesting because obviously these men are proposing to us exactly as we are…yet we feel the need to change. I’ve wanted to make a change for awhile, so I’m just hoping our elopement will kick me into high gear.

I’ve told people that I’m doing the 3 B’s diet:  Beer, Bacon, and Butter.  That usually shuts them up.

 

In reality I am trying to eat healthier and work out more, but it’s nothing to do with the wedding.  Despite having a small frame I have never been in shape or healthy (while my diet plan is sarcastic I really do love those 3Bs lol).  Fiance is trying to drop the few extra pounds he gained this year so it seemed like the perfect time to shape up myself.

What is size US 2-3-4 in UK sizes? Im a size 14 UK and dont think I look fat, I would like to lose weight and tone up, but I hardly look ‘fat’….if thats a size 8 in US, then I must look like an elephant according to some of the people you know :S

Being between a size 8-10 is “no man’s land between skinny and plus size,” which isn’t “THAT bad”? Really?! Thanks for making this size 10 feel like crap.

I find it bizarre when people make comments like that. Planning a wedding was like another full time job- getting drastically into shape would be a third fulltime job! The wedding is about two people in love- that’s what makes them beautiful. The rest is like extra sugar on a sugar donut. Not essential, but delicious either way. Maybe a bad example for a diet thread:-) .

@MrsNewDay:  i am not on a diet plan for the wedding.  but everyone else around me is on a diet plan for my wedding.  Fiance, my mom, 2 of my BMs.  All by their own choice.

It really doesn’t matter what size you are. I’m a 2 and a few days after I got engaged my mom asked me if I was going to start toning up. blehhhhh

Ugh. I get this ALL the time at work. The other day someone stopped at my desk and stared in shock as I ate one damn Reese’s PB cup and exclaimed loudly, “Don’t you have a wedding dress to fit into?” I just shrugged and said that I ordered my dress a size too large on purpose, but inside I was like, “What the everliving f*ck is your deal?”

Also, I’m a size 4 and a perfectly healthy weight. Not that it would be an acceptable thing to say if I was unhealthily overweight, but it’s like, “What else can I do to make you people happy? Be unhealthily UNDERweight?? Would that finally make you leave me alone?” Geez.

What turns people into crazy, oversharing folks when you get engaged? << Serious question.

I’ve been a runner for 5 years, but have just in the past year taken on weight lifting too and I’ve only had a couple people make comments about looking good for the wedding.  Um, Fiance loved me the way I looked the day he proposed so eff that.

@MrsNewDay:  Lol.  I’m a size 6/8… didn’t know an 8 is considered “no man’s land.” 

People are SO nuts sometimes.  I had a coworker asked me recently what size pants I wear.  I think she was asking because I’ve lost some weight over the past few months, but what business is that of yours?!  And then another day, when I woke up late and came into work without makeup on, another coworker told me how much better I look with makeup.
