Are you kidding me?? Girl, you are not fat at all. Before I even read that was you, when I saw the first pic, I said “awww how cute”. You are adorable. Your arm is not fat, YOU are not fat, and I can only HOPE I look as adorable and great in my wedding pic as you do in yours. Clearly you see something that we don’t. 

Let your husband put up the pics that he likes. It is his wedding too and it’s a reminder that he married his best friend and the woman he loves. It’s a reminder every day that he sees it that he chose YOU for a reason and what a great day he had. Give him that. You need to compromise and deal with how you perceive yourself because right now it’s very distorted and everyone on here does not see it …and we are strangers..usually the harshest critics!

Wedding pics don’t much uglier than this do they?? An old friend of mine looks more like The Joker than a blushing bride. YUCK!!!

ian.spruce:  You know, first I was like “wow, who would say this about a friend?” And then I noticed the “old friend” part, and it all made sense. They’re an old friend because they got tired of your personality, arent they?

peachacid:  oh I know how you feel!!! I suggest actually playing around with Photoshop yourself! Have fun with the liquify tool. I felt similar to you about pics of me – I am super critical of myself and see every flaw. So when I got my wedding pics I moved the ones I thought were tolerable to a new folder (so the very ugly ones weren’t there) and then I went to town with the liquify tool I made myself look perfect then I saved the images to a new folder) I left both folders for a few weeks and then went back to look at them. I found out that I am a complete and utter lunatic and the edited photos looked so unrealistic and ridiculous!! It totally shifted my paradigm about my photos and my image in general!!! I totally suggest doing it if you’re self conscious!
