@bells219:  It’s been TWO DAYS, WHY am I not skinny yet? Clearly I’ve worked hard these last two days.  I should at least feel skinnier.

HAHAHA!!! Ohhhhhh if only, right? You’ll feel better in no time. Just hang in there. Easier said than done, I know.

Jump on MyFitnessPal and hit the weights at the gym!  Tone up!  Do a few days of cardio and a few days of weights, track your eating and be kind to yourself.

Haha.  I could have written this post.  Although, I have been working out and eating a LITTLE bit better for a couple of weeks, so I can fit into most of my clothes again.  But I still feel a bit more wobbly than usual!

Hang in there.  Post wedding weight gain is the pits!

I always feel like being in a secure relationship makes me gain weight. It’s like I subconsciously know that my partner will love me no matter what, so I don’t think as much about what/how much I’m eating. I’ve gained 5 lbs since the wedding (though I blame that mostly on our honeymoon in France- wow, do they know how to eat!!). 

Sorry, no real tips. I’m trying to get motivated again, too.

It also doesn’t help that it’s spring so everyone’s showing more skin! Tongue Out

Tip: Eat a ton of good-for-you veggies that you love as snacks to fill you up so you’re not munching on bad stuff. My favorites are homemade kale chips and grapefruit (but not tegether). yum!

OMG you got me at being happy makes you fat.  Same here, ever since I got together with my Darling Husband and up to today (4 years later) I cant seem to loose weight. Ugh! 

I feel the same way you ladies feel. 🙁

Ditto.  I’m up 3lbs since my wedding on the 19th and it’s really not helpful considering our honeymoon is coming up and I keep buying bikinis even though I look like a beached orca.

@KristenGotMarried:  

 

A beached orca! ROFL….

 

I am feeling the same way! I put on 10 lbs. at Christmas when Darling Husband and I moved in and got married during my two week vacation break… there was sooo much going on between the packing and unpacking etc.

It’s been almost six months now and I am running out of excuses. I am in Florida and the weather is becoming increasingly hot and humid … there is no worse time of year here to be overweight than in summer. Ugh.

I recently re-joined Weight Watchers, which has been successful for me in the past. But this time I am so inconsistent about sticking with the program! I keep gaining and losing the same two or three pounds over and over again.

I do feel like a beached orca too… I am busting out of my clothes and I ***hate*** it…. fortunately I am about to go on two and a half months summer vacation (I am an elementary teacher) so I am planning on using the down time to hit the gym!

Fortunately I am blessed in that my wonderful Darling Husband has given me no grief whatsoever about the extra pudge. This past weekend I mentioned my diet in passing and he told me not to lose too much weight because he doesn’t want me to get too skinny. LOL! No chance of that happening at the rate I’m going!

@bells219:  Nothing fits appropriately, and my thighs are fighting with eachother for walking space.

BAHAHA I just love the thigh fight… Honey i totally get you. I try to be so good about my diet and exercise but I beat myself up a LOT about weight fluctuations. And ending up 10 lbs down the road and realizing it totally SUCKS and you are like wait how did this happen? Keep going! You can take it back off and you know what you’re doing, it’ll be gone in no time 🙂

Ugh, I’m with you, except that it’s finishing my dissertation that has made me fat, and it is my stomach, not my thighs, causing me to hate how I look in every single outfit I own.

Diss must be done July 1. I am allowing myself to remain flubby until then.

I just wanted to pop in and say that I understand what you are going through – the exact same thing happened to me after our wedding.  I feel like a giant walking bowl of pasty white Jello and it all got worse when the honeymoon was over.  My thighs have never been this big before, it’s so alarming that I thought maybe I had some sort of organ failure that was causing my legs to swell, lol
