I feel the same way.  ALSO…I think obsessing over how we will look in June is going to make us CRAZY.  So let’s discuss something else…like, should I eat some frosting?

I am really struggling with the need/desire to work out and eat healthy so I look my best and gushers fruit snacks. Stress/sadness etc and grocery stores leaving them on the ends of the aisles have made resisting those delicious little buggers impossible!!!! bleh.

I just eat what I want and hit the gym two to four times a week.  

 

@jessdoxy:  Gushers are still around?!?!

I feel the same, want to lose ten pounds, contemplating Botox, really hoping my makeup lady can make my thin eyebrows look full without looking all  BLAM Eyebrows in your face! Lol

We are our own worst critics girls.  🙂 I hope everyone feels like a princess on their wedding day!!

Also I know I am being flippant with the frosting comment, but I am absolutely in the same boat.  Like I will lay on the floor and cry because I will be ugly on my wedding day.  But…when I don’t feel like that, I feel fine about it.  So it’s a really annoying roller coaster at the moment…  I really do understand, though.

If anyone is in their 20’s enjoy food while you can!! I’m in my late 30’s and I frequent the gym 4 days a week if I even look at a donut I feel bloated!! LOL!!

@peachacid:  

They are indeed! Wish they weren’t though. I can turn down doughnuts and cupcakes but not those darn gushers.

It sucks so much that so far I have mostly refused to think about it. I also hate to think of myself like an object… it’s such a disempowering feeling.

I know Fiance loves me and always wants to ravish me just the way I am even with my bedhead, no makeup, and comfy pjs on, so I know he’ll have a big smile on his face when he sees me that day, and I just focus on that.

Gack! Wedding blog image disorder strikes again!!! I totally get this! There are so many beaitful weddings and beautiful brides out there (even though half of them are posed weddings with models) it can be totally overwhelming. Instead, look at pictures of yourself. If you’re comparing every day you to wedding day you, I bet you’ll be noticeably glowing and beautiful. Be proud of who you are! Your fiance would probably be pretty confused if Cindy Crawford showed up at the end of the aisle! It’s you he wants!!!
