I have been engaged for almost year and have been intentionally putting off setting the date. I feel too fat. I've gained 70 lbs since I had my son, 70 POUNDS!! It's ridiculous and embarrassing and I just can't seem to keep it off. I might lose 10 and then gain it back. Everyone keeps asking when we are getting married, but I don't want to do it looking like this. I know I will regret it when I look back on the pics.
I'm torn, should I just do it and burn the pictures? Or wait and keep trying to lose?

I agree that you should set a date. It might be the motivation you need to make the weight loss happen. If not, DON'T change the date- just do it! A dress is easier to take in than let out, so buy it at your current size. There ARE healthy ways to lose weight that don't leave you starving. I've lost over 60 lbs so far eating clean (not a fad diet). Get moving, and eat right. You can do this!
That said, DON'T wait to start your married life until you've lost the weight. If you haven't met your goal, that doesn't make you any les worthy. If you reach your goal after you've been married, then have a vow renewal, or do a big anniversary party and get another wedding dress! Take some gorgeous pictures then! =)
