@kris325:  congrats you’re married ! Definitely don’t look pregnant! you looked beautiful 100% TRUE!!  Losing 90 lbs is quite an accomplishment way to go!  I can relate to you regarding the after effects of losing a bunch of weight. I myself lost 65lbs after I had my daughter 17 years ago. loose skin, stretch marks etc…I was hell bent on getting surgery and ready to pull the trigger but realized the money would be put to better use in an investment account for my daughters college education.  glad I did that she’ll be needing that money next year:)   Chin up,  continue your healthy lifestyle and be happy!

All I can say is if thats the picture where you look the most pregnant then you have nothing to worry about! You look lovely. And congratulations on the weight loss!

I think who ever made those comments should be ashamed of themselves! You look absoluely beautiful… and NOT PREGNANT! Yes there is a little bit of a belly (we all have one) but if your tummy is as bad as you say it is, you cannot tell at all! Untill i really has a good long hard look I honestly thought that you had a beautiful hourglass figure like beyonc’e 🙂 As a mummy of two, I can honestly say that your tummy never gets that washboard look again anyway.. well mine hasnt.. I now have a permanent little pot belly  thatt always looks like i need a good fart or very over due for my monthlies… my hip bones have actually widened 3 inches since before having my babies too!

I think you (and your girdles) have done a great job in making you look like nothing but a stunning bride!  Your stomach has lovely smooth lines and there is no obvious siign of a bump or little tummy fold that you see on alot of women who have lost a great amount of weight or had babies. You have a lovely narrow waist, which you dont have when pregnant; toned arms and shoulders and above all, you look so happy!!

I’m not married yet, but I would honestly be thrilled to bits if looked as beautiful as you do on your wedding day.

I think you looked beautiful. The person who said that is classless.

‘are you pregnant?’ still rates as the least tactful and sensitive thing to say to a woman unless you are sure she is preggo. Really, this is a such a mean and distasteful comment to make.


You looked stunning and most women have a belly. I have one, all my friends have one. You certainly are not the owner of a belly that should lead to pregnancy suspicions. Ignore and love your photos. No need to dwell on comments that are so incredibly needlessly mean.

I hated my pictures too, for the same reasons.  After about 5 months I was able to look at them again and not hate them. I feel like you only need 4 or 5 good ones that you will actually display anyway.   I know this doesn’t help you today, but several of my friends have had this problem too, and time seems to help. good luck!

Ugh some people!  You look stunning and absolutely not pregnant. 




We tend to be our own worst critics. I know I looked at my wedding pictures and nth ought that I must be walking around with a massive double chin without knowing it.  Nope.  I do something wierd with my neck for pictures. Never realized that.  




But seriously, you looked fantastic. People can be so insensitive.  I think too, because its a wedding, guests tend to like to speculate about future pregnancy and for some bizarre reason feel that it is some how appropriate to ask such a question that they may otherwise not in normal day to day conversation.  I lost track of how many times we were asked “so when do we get to see some babies?”  Umm…the ink isn’t even dry on our marriage certificate so butt off!

@kris325:  wow you were a stunning bride!! Your godmother and her entourage were completely ridiculous and absolutely tactless to say anything. You look killer in that dress!!!

What a crazy,ridiculous thing to say. I would be really hurt that a table of people were talking about me like that, people are so dumb sometimes. After she told me that, I would have said “What a mean, hurtful thing to say. I’m not pregnant, and that was very rude of all of you.” I think you look curvy and lovely in your dress. Christina Hendricks is one of the sexiest women alive, and she doesn’t have a washboard stomach either, but still looks dang good. And so do you! And definitely not pregnant.

Ugh. I just despise that your family members said that to you on your big day, especially after everything they know you had to go through to get that weight off. By the way, congratulations on that. Weight loss for health or personal betterment is a big accomplishment…

However, we women are too harsh on our bodies. Everyone is shaped differently, and rarely, even the healthiest/fittest of women have perfectly flat stomachs. We do have organs and stuff in there. 😉

You were so stunning, and the dress was lovely. Don’t let them take that way from you. Look how happy you look!

“…obviously I didn’t look as good as I thought”

Right…I’d say you looked BETTER than you thought. I seriously hope you are able to take a few steps back, reflect on how YOU felt on your wedding day, and then take another look at those pictures. You look gorgeous! Your hair! Your smile! Those arms! The dress hugs in all the right places and looks wonderful on you. Don’t let some self conscious ninny take away from your big day. 

I’ll also ditto what others said: I HOPE I can have your body on my wedding day!

Oh hun! You look amazing and womanly and (most importantly) FIT. That’s quite awful of your godmother to say. I have aunties who do the same and think they’re being helpful, and I totally get how much it bothers you. I hope everyone’s responses on this thread make those thoughts go away.
