Wow, your engaged, immediately your onto planning every detail of your special day "The Wedding". Work, life, children, family, commitments, financial responsbilities, working with others to pull this all off and still have hair left to style on your big day.
Then, the cherry on top of it all, weight loss - because isn't that what every bride is expected to do too! Well I love it, overtime more and more brides are reading the memo and realizing to embrace, care and love who they are no matter what the dress size states (oh yeah did I mention most wedding dresses run larger in size (numbers) then they really are, e.g. say you are a size 14, the wedding dress may be a 16 or even an 18 now add that double cherry onto a already sensitive subject).
Please weight loss is not a laughing subject yet sometimes we really need to look at why we are doing it, considering it and when the hectic to implement it through out this next year, it makes me want to go take a nap..lol.
Well, Rachel Estapa, founder of "More To Love" , offers a e-course "devoted to being curvy, happy & healthy." She was interviewed by Huffingtonpost.com (Huffington Post's online presence) and they posted a video of the interview this weeking titled" I Refuse To Lose Weight For My Wedding" . The interview is based on Rachel Estapa's decision not change her weight for her Wedding Day. She shares some of the comments and pressures brides are placed under by themselves and others.
I inserted the link below for your convenience, so you can view the video, interview.

Honestly, I have yet to see a bride look anything but gorgeous on the wedding day.
Remember you do have choices, living a healthy lifestyle and taking care of yourself everyday because once the wedding day is done, you kick your feet up, and can finally breath, you need to be able to love you and celebrate your new marriage with the person you just commited your life with. No matter what physical size you are.
I always encourage your thoughts and comments, Jacqueline
