    Good luck! I'm also going to be a bridesmaid in April and December, and I'm getting married myself in 2017 (I guess I'm at that age where wedding season hits its peak). Would be happy to be motivation/accountability partners!

    I can relate to being in ED recovery too. I was never diagnosed with an ED, but I definitely had very disordered eating habits a few years ago, and I'm wary of falling back into those patterns. I want to lose weight now but I'm much more concerned with being healthy, and losing body fat rather than just focusing on the number on the scale.

    Best of luck!

    I'm in a similar boat having had food issues as a teen (am 26 now) and now I've ended up binging - total other end of the scale.
    Logging an eating diary I find helps, as does exercisjng daily and getting plenty of water :)
    Feel free to add me on MFP :)

    Bridesmaid in my brother's wedding March 5 and they only got engaged in December so it's all happening fast. So I need to get on this and lose the last of the baby weight. (He's one)

    Bridesmaid in my brother's May 28th wedding, looking for overall weight loss (long term I need to lose 50-60 more pounds, but I know that's not realistic for me before the wedding) and specifically to not have back fat rolls, because the bridesmaid dresses are almost backless. Not a good look. lol Feel free to add me!

    My wedding is September 2016. I wish to get in shape, as well. I am very happy with my current weight, but my eating habits are very unhealthy (lots of carbs, not much water). I want to stay the same size that I am, as I bought my dress about a month ago and need to stay the same size so I don't have to get it let out!

    I'm playing MOH to my best friend in March. She gave us the color and let us choose the dress - mine is absolutely fabulous and I'm determined to lose 15 lbs to look fabulous in it! I'm a good dieter, but terrible at working out - I can't seem to get motivated to start moving. I'd love all advice about how to get started and maintain a fitness journey.
