This picture motivates me to lose the weight so that on our 5 year vow renewal I can wear whatever dress I want to! I loved having a black wedding dress but I think subconsciously I picked it because I knew I would look smaller in black! I had to drive 3 hours to find a plus size wedding dress store and then they still only had a hand full of dresses I could try on, so I ordered my wedding dress without ever seeing it in person or trying it on! Next time that will be different. I hope to be able to try on whatever dress I want and feel good in it! 4/6/13 ❤️ #bariatricsleeve #bariatriclife #bariatric #wls #wlscommunity #wlsjourney #wlsfamily #wlssupport #wlsstrong #vsg #vsginstacrew #vsgcommunity #vsglife #vsgjourney

  • lil_tummyTruth be told one thing holding me back from getting married is I don't want to settle for a dress that fits but not necessarily something I want. My girlfriend is smaller than me and I know she would look great in a dress or a tux of her choosing but I feel like I would have to settle for something that comes in a size 24 or 26 and fits my boobs and my stomach. Sounds so stupid and vain right? Idk I want to look pretty lol. 2 more years for you right? Where will you renew your vows? You could make it like a destination wedding! Lol.
  • fatgirlfitness_rny@wls_wonder_woman no that doesn't sounds stupid. But you never know you could find a dress you love now. You just have to look. Yeah about a year and a half. We haven't thought about where yet. A destination wedding would be fun.
  • healthy_christenYou looked gorgeous!!! I totally feel you on the dress issue, though. I didn't care for mine all that much. I did feel like I settled for sure.
  • fatgirlfitness_rny@healthy_christen awe thank you. I liked my dress but literally right before the wedding I wished I was wearing a more traditional dress. But I won't be settling on our renewal that's for sure!
  • vedrana.vsg@vsg_n_me I feel you. I actually told everyone always how I don't want a wedding, that's a waste of money bla bla bla. We ended up going to court. But I was just now happy with what I would look like in front of all those people.
