    daisybee90:  We’re not married yet, but Fiance and I have been together for over 4 years. I haven’t gained any weight, but I’ve unsuccessfully tried to lose some. Fiance has gained probably 2 stone though. But it has more to do with the fact that since we met at university, he now has a very stressful desk job which he hates, and which leaves him coming home really late almost every evening, too tired to eat real and good food.

    We just celebrated out first anniversary and I weigh about 15 lbs less. Wedding stress was not good for my diet, and I was able to drop weight later.

    I’ve actually lost 7 lbs since my wedding but my husband and I kind of made apact at starting to eat healthy…going out drinking less and working out more.  We have both been pretty healthy prior but we know we are getting older and want to be able to spend a long hapy life together.  Of course thats about to change because Im pregnant so I guess for a bit the 30lbs will be true lol

    Darling Husband proposed when I was at my heaviest. I lost 50 lbs for the wedding and kept it off until getting pregnant (over 2 years later).

    I did a smoothie diet before the wedding and lost 5 pounds…I looked great in the pictures but it was totally miserable! I gained the 5 back afterwards and probably 3 pounds on top of that. I def want to lose 3-5 pounds in the next few months but the motivation is struggling lol. The struggle is def real!!

    I definitely think you tend to pick up the habits of your spouse/partner – and that contributes to it alot.

    I was a size 6 forever, and then I started dating my Darling Husband. A lot of our time together involved eating out, and back then I wasn’t an over-eater. I’d order my meal and that would be it. When we started dating, Darling Husband would always insist we have soup, salad, dinner, dessert. Once you get into those habits, it’s very hard to break them. Also, I was pretty active but then we started spending our free time together and my activity went out the window.

    daisybee90:  I’m counting since we moved in together/got engaged, and it’s forty pounds! We’re both realizing this is our chance to lose weight, since we’re in our late 20s and it’s our time to be young and pretty looking lol!

    I’m not sure if it’s as much ‘married weight’ as just being comfortable and happy with someone for a long time…Fiance and I have been together 10 years and my weight has fluctuated A LOT in that time (like 45 lbs between my lightest and heaviest). I’m currently losing weight for the wedding and would like to think I will stay at my wedding weight forever but realistically I know its unlikely

    Well I’m guessing I will gain weight once I have kids, but I’m not planning on gaining weight until then. I randomly gained 10 pounds after college and I lost it a few months ago using MyFitnessPal to track calories. Now I’m still using MyFitnessPal for maintenance.

    This is one area where my anxious personality actually benefits me…I have always been thin, probably at least partially because I am nervous/fidgety (fidgeting burns calories! plus sometimes I get so nervous I can’t eat) and also I am a bit of a hypochondriac so I try to eat pretty healthy.

    Now I’m trying to stay on track with working out though. It’s really a lot easier for me to not do something (ie. cut calories in order to diet) than to do something (ie. do cardio 2x a week and strength training 4x a week).

    My fiance is slowly losing weight also. He is 40 pounds overweight…I don’t really mind him being overweight aesthetically speaking, because he’ll always be hot to me, but I told him I was getting concerned about his health. So he started working out more often and eating at least slightly healthier. So far he’s lost about 5 pounds.
