    I’ve gained a little weight, I contribute it to a desk job and baking a lot of chocolate yumminess. Either way, I’m not concerned about it yet and won’t let my weight get out of control. I didn’t even realize I gained weight until a recent doctor appointment because Darling Husband and I don’t have a scale.

    from the time i got married to the time i found out i was pregnant (about 6 months later) i had gained 7 pounds. that’s pretty bad….

    my goal is to lose all of my baby weight and THEN 10 pounds after the baby comes.

    I actually lost a few pounds, unintentionally, after the wedding.  DH and I lead quite an active lifestyle and get out and about a fair bit on weekends.  We also tend to eat a relatively healthy diet, although we don’t consciously watch what we eat.  Keeping fit and healthy is important to us so I don’t see either one of us letting our weight slide.

    Of course now that I’m 18 weeks pregnant, the scale has been creeping up and it freaks me out a bit, although I keep reminding myself it is for a very good reason!  I’m definitely committed to losing the baby weight once this little bub arrives!

    I refuse to get on the scale because I’m positive I’ve gained since the wedding. I was super diligent about working out and eating really clean before the wedding…and I’m still active and eat healthy, but I feel sorta lumpy…

    I was my skinniest at my wedding (117 lbs), which was nice, but actually a little too skinny for me (@ 5’7″). My body also really didn’t want to be there, but wedding stress got to me towards the end. We went on a 10 day cruise for our honeymoon, and I quickly gained about 8 lbs. I stayed here for the first year, but after living with my husband, I started eating more since he ate more. I think I weighed in at 130 before getting off of birth control to TTC (3 years married). I like being around 125, but we’ll see after this pregnancy is over.

    I think I put on 8-10 lbs. I didn’t own a scale until recently so I don’t know for sure. I indulged during the honeymoon and we both got pretty lazy about the gym. I recently got back on track and I’ve lost 4 lbs.

    well I did gain weight (but I was gaining weight before the wedding because of new medication) but we have both lost 20+ each since November (a month after the wedding) thanks to a personal trainer!

    since i just got married a couple of months ago it’s kind of hard to say. I gained weight on the honeymoon and this month I started WW and lost 2 lbs. So I guess you can say I lost weight. BUT if I didn’t start WW I know that I probably would have stayed or gained.

    But when I moved in with Darling Husband a couple of years ago, THAT is where I gained the weight. I was making hearty dinners and wasn’t working out

    I have gained 5-7lbs, although that is partially because of Christmas and our Honeymoon bad eating.  Darling Husband has gained too.

    I am back to cooking healthy food and exercise, so hopefully it comes off (and then some!) quickly!

    I’m feeling self conscious about this, too. I’m not sure what the deal is. Leading up to the wedding, I’ll admit I put a little more effort into losing weight (though nothing more than 10ish pounds). Now, I feel like a chunky monkey, but I’m not sure about actual gains. Part of me thinks it’s because it’s winter, and we hibernate.

    I’ve also been baking a lot…

    I gained weight.

    I contribute it to both having a desk job and battling some anxiety and depression associated with said desk job.

    I stayed the same! My weight fluctuates naturally and right before the wedding I dropped a lot of water weight which I did gain back, but my weight today is the same it was the year of my wedding.

    In the month before my wedding I dropped 10 pounds just due to stress and within 6 months after our wedding I was up 20 pounds. So I gained 20 from my wedding day and 10 from my normal weight. I keep saying I am going to lose it but have been married for 1.5yrs and still haven’t done much about it. I found myself eating a lot more junk and or ordering out with Darling Husband. Also in the beginning we were having a glass of wine or two with dinner so that added up quickly.
