So, my husband and I have been married a little more than 6 months now. We are both very happy. So happy in fact that we both have gained about 20 lbs since the wedding. I am not happy about it at all. Especially since I had lost a little over 100 lbs prior to the wedding and still had about 30 I wanted to lose. Even worse is that my hubby just looks like he bulked up in muscle. But he still isn't happy with his weight gain. We have no excuses I know but I'm sure others can relate to the stress of planning a wedding (especially one where every single person was coming from out of town) and then a wonderful honeymoon (where we agreed to splurge on our diet because we deserved it) and then have me start a new teaching job the next week and he start back to school a week after that. He's started back at school after serving in the Air Force and our schedules just got all kinds of messed up. Then came the holidays!
Now that it is the new year, we are getting back into our old routine on eating. I have started back on my food journal and we will be hitting the gym at least 3 times a week and I have Zumba DVDs to use in between. I absolutely love Zumba btw.
I guess I was wanting to see if anyone else had the same problems when they first got married. The weight gain has really just affected my self-esteem and the way I view myself. Any tips or suggestions to get a more positive outlook on starting to workout again. It is going to be hard in the next couple of weeks and I need some ideas to stay upbeat.
