Ok so I would love to blame the pandemic for my weight gain but I can not! I love food. I felt like when we were dating I was super fine, attempting to TONE up. Welllllll that “love” weight 🙄🙄 happened. I’m afraid that the back fat in my sleeveless dress I picked and gut is going to drive me crazy.


My MOH told me that they alter dresses and you will still be beautiful. My FH thinks I’m fine. Buuuttttttt my second chin says differently. I guess I’m my biggest critic but seriously. I know I have time before my Dec 2021 wedding but I’m afraid that I’ll be huge. I’ve already purchased a dress (size 16) almost cried. But the dress consultant said wedding dress sizes and street clothes aren’t the same. I think she was trying to make me feel better lol.
I’m trying not to stress about weight. The more I try to diet the more I eat. Ugh! Lol tenor.gif

    Focus not so much on weight loss but changing the quality of food that you eat. Tbh weight can’t really be associated with being healthy. This is actually what I am trying to do now. If I want someone sweet, eat some kind of fruit bowl. If I want something salty, cut and bake some potatoes to make home fries in the oven. Include a lot of foods that have a low glycemic index that make you full like vegetables.

    What’s so weird is that I use to meal prep and I was just fine. Now either everything going on, love, Covid, work schedules.... I feel like all I do is eat! A lot of the food options are not available with new schedules only thing open is fast food. And I’m only home 6 hours a day and 5of them I’m sleep. So it’s very difficult. I gotta figure out something. Definitely working on getting back HEALTHY!

    You still have a lot of time until December 2021. I’m 9 months out and now I’m taking my fitness goals more seriously now but months prior it was bad too lol so I get it. I am sure you will get more focused as the time draws closer.

    I 100% know how you feel. I've been losing weight for almost 2 years went from 300lbs to 190lbs and gained 25lbs back. I fit into my dress perfectly when I was at 190. I had my fitting and my dress didnt fit. The seamstress literally used her mad muscles and got it to zip. I turned to look at that back and was mortified with my C cup back boobs. She going to add a few peices to cover it so itll kinda look like an illusion back. We have 3 weeks till our wedding....at this point it is what it is.

    I agree with previous person that said focus on changing into a healthy lifestyle rather than specifically diet for the purpose of a wedding. Look for a workout regiment that works for you. It took me a lot of time to find an exercise routine that I enjoyed enough to actually stick with. That’s the issue you know it’s so easy to start some thing but it’s a whole other story to stick to it.

    I wanted to be in the best shape of my life for my wedding. I have gained 70 pounds a while after I met by now husband. I thought I’d crush it and be so motivated for my wedding since I did loose half the weight. But covid derailed me and all the stress of my wedding happening or not = gaining weight back. I did look it together 2 weeks before the wedding lol....and had my dress taken out and looked good. Maybe not what I hoped for but on the day I was so happy it didn’t matter. Now when I see all the picture I might be like ohhhh yeahhhhh but I’m hoping for the best! I had a sweetheart dress and it had lacing in the back that was tight and traveling but also the front area too.


    I suggest joining a group where you have accountability. I joined weight loss challenge group on Facebook and it kept me accountable but also it helped that other people were “suffering” with me lol! I agree though about person that said make healthy choices. That is the best way!
    Wish you the best!

    You Still Have A Lot Of Time. "Dieting" Doesnt Work Though. A LIFESTYLE Change Is What Works And Is Whats Sustainable. You Dont Have To Deprive Yourself Of Anything You Love To Eat. Moderation Is Key. Smiley smile

    Wedding dresses and street clothes are not the same at all. I said yes to the dress this month and got it in the biggest size it came in (size 16). The sizing is not US sizing (I wear between sizes 8 - 10) and the size 16 is so that my boobs have enough room in the dress but since my waist is smaller it is easier to take away from a dress than to add to a dress.

    Try a healthy earing routine. The Mediterranean diet is delicious and helps many people lose weight. Also the Hello Fresh meal plans are supposed to be good.


    Best of luck!

    I was genuinely shocked when I had an appointment for wedding dress alterations to see how much weight I had lost due to exercise, watching my food intake and COVID stress. I went from size 6 to a size 4!!

    I freaking love food, from all cultures. Fancy food. Fast food. I love food so much that it used to cause me genuine distress to see the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles eat entire slices of pizza without chewing. Like, where's the joy in tossing a slice of pizza down your gullet?? It's pizza!! Enjoy that ish!

    Anyway, the point is, when I need to for real get my butt into gear, I weigh in every morning. That late night snack doesn't seem to so appealing when you're hopping on that scale when you wake up. It's just a good way for me to hold myself accountable.
