Just curious...

How many of you are trying to lose weight for the wedding? I'm trying to, but I'm also not trying to do like drastic weight loss either....my main goal for losing weight is for my health and to increase my chances of being able to conceive later on. I'm hitting a rough patch right now with trying lose weight and I almost want to give up. And I just find it so irritating (not trying to start a fight with anyone, but it does irritate me) when I see other brides who are like size 2,4,6 and they're STILL freaking out about their weight....it almost makes me wonder what they think about my weight! I'm not rying to be a size 2, I just want to be at a healthy weight and help increase my chances of bring able to have a baby later on. Thanks for listening!

For the past year I have been watching what I eat and being more active...  I have lost maybe 20 pounds in a year and would like to lose another 5 pounds or so before the wedding (in 22 days) but I don't stress out about it.  My FI thinks I look good, I feel pretty and just realize that I'm not made to have a size 2 body... I'm more of a size 14-16 body and I'm happy with it...  Just feel good about yourself and keep healthy habits for when you get ready to conceive...

I'm trying t lose weight for health reasons as well. I would be happy to lose at least 15 - 20 pounds and be a size 12 or 14 in pants.

Thank you ladies!  I'd be happy in a 12/14 also.

I tried but it kept adding to my stress level and I kept gaining weight. So I quit trying so hard and I've been losing weight, nothing drastic but its still been coming off. 
I don't necessarily want to lose 50-60 pounds but fitting into my pre-baby (size 13/14) pants would be great. :-) My biggest thing is the after baby belly "flap" of loose flabby skin I have... It isn't very attractive and I really hate it.


I totally get how you feel about the size 2 girls obsessing over 2 pounds or something else small like that, I worry that they think I am a huge lazy fatty who doesn't work out and eats bonbons all day when I don't.

Me!!!  Waving hands!  This is the biggest I have ever been in my life.  I am not ashamed of my body though I want to be able to look back on my wedding and be happy.  LOL  I want to lose for health reasons not vanity.  We are both dieting...he can stand to lose a few pounds too.  :o)

I've been losing weight for health reasons, too. I think it's definitely a motivating factor that allows for great results. I think if you are doing it to please others or simply for superficial reasons, then the weight loss isn't going to be as fulfilling or staying. I've lost 25 lbs and one dress size since the end of January. There are no secrets other than eating well, counting calories, and exercising daily. I still have off days but I'm really trying to look and feel better, especially for the big day!

Thank you!  Here's to losing weight for health and not to fit in a size 0!  Hehe.
