-gain 20~ lbs (i can’t gain weight for the life of me, I don’t feel like a woman I’m so small ๐Ÿ™ )

– clearer skin- I’ve had hormonal cystic acne all my life the only thing that helped was the pill but that made me go insane, the one time my fiance saw me while I was off the pill even he said it was gross, and I don’t want to wear makeup on my wedding

 

I hate thinking about the beauty aspect of weddings lol!!

drop 8 pounds even though I am fine with my size… just for the sake of the dress I am wearing – low back so want to have a very smooth line from chest to my hip (no small rolls!)  I have not been successful in finding an under garmet that would do that for me for this dress!

– Lose 10-15 lbs, pretty manageable I think

– Color my hair blond. I used to dye my hair constantly but eased up so I could come to terms with the gray and keep it healthy. I figured one last round of blonde won’t hurt, and I love the look with my dress.

– Clean up my skin. It’s not bad at this point, just dry due to winter.

– Get Michelle Obama arms

I am 5’10, and when I got engaged I hovered between 145-150lbs. A very healthy weight, but I didn’t like how I looked. I always felt like I looked like Olive from Popeye. I had a flat bum, small boobs, and I felt like I looked like a stick figure. I always envied the voloptuous ‘pin-up’ figure from the 1950’s. Over the course of a year I gained about 15lbs. I did this mainly through diet (or lack therof!). Sure, I got a bit of a pudgy tummy, but I also gained fuller boobs, a plumper bum and thighs, and I just generally felt better. People I knew were even asking me if I LOST weight because I looked so much healthier/happier!

I already got married LOL But just wanted to share that I started about 2 months ago drinking close to a gallon of water a day (some days less, some days around) and my skin is so much smoother and healthier looking!

nykkee :  Invest in Rapid Lash, the eyebrow formula.  It encourages eyebrow regrowth.  I’ve been using it for a month now with great results.

As for pre wedding beauty goals:

Lose 15lbs and tone up by increasing physical activity and going keto.

Revitalize my eyelashes and eyebrows with Rapid Lash

Professionally Whiten Teeth

snowflake8 :  I’m not even at a ‘healthy weight’ I’m about 10 or 15 under what I should be, but I can’t seem to gain weight!!! It’s so frustrating, but your post gives me hope! I envy all ladies with big curves, chest, butt, or lovehandles; I want them all ๐Ÿ˜…

-Lose about 20kgs! And tone up. I am a UK size 10-12 (US 6-8) and am just shy of 80kgs. I have a very slight frame and was tiny until about 3 years ago when I got a Mirena coil and just piled it on. I’m now rid of the coil and trying to lose the weight the healthy way. We’ll see how it goes.

-Grow my hair. I have lovely thick dark glossy and very straight hair which was down to my butt until a little over a year ago when I chopped it off to my chin. Now it’s back to boob length but I need it longer. Between bra strap and waist is ideal.

-Lighten my poor teeth. They’re not so bad but I love red wine and coffee. Oops.

-Straighten my one wonky tooth. I have a tiny mouth and had 6 teeth removed as a teen to make space before having braces. After the braces the front teeth on my lower jaw lost some correction. One sticks up and makes me very self-conscious. Gotta sort it.

-Get contacts. I need glasses for almost everything now, but only since last summer. My eyes have really deteriorated. Can’t get use to wearing them though. Smudges, smears and dirty lenses drive me mad. I’m never satisfied with them and whilest they’re comfortable, they’re so heavy on my face after a little while. I need to get contacts so I have the option, and also because I hate the thought of having to faff about with my glasses on my wedding day even though they look pretty sexy.

-Just generally improve my skin. It’s okay but can be sensitive and I do have some scaring from blemishes around my chin and mouth.
