DID YOU LET YOURSELF GO SINCE GETTING MARRIED?

with the added pressure of staying slim and looking good to land a husband, have you since relaxed your efforts to be slim since getting married or did having kids just completely throw your body for a loop?

 

have you let yourself go?  How much have you gained/lost since your marriage?

I let myself go before we got married. Then got pregnant. And now am finally getting my sexy back. Thankfully I skinny wrap.

I got married when yds was 2 months old. My weight has been up and down (at the most 160 and lowest 90), I dont really wear make up unless it's date night or just to do it.

Nope :) After two kids, I weigh 25 lbs less than I did when we were married ten years ago. And I am happier. I'm good :)

I have let myself go, but it's more about the lifestyle of having children and husband rather than not having the pressure to look good.  I was much slimmer and healthier when I was single, but I also had more time to work out, I controlled all of the food that came into the house, and I was satisfied with simple meals like soup or salad.  Now I feel like I have to have a meat and starch with every meal because that's what my dh likes.  Plus we have a lot more candy and snacks in the house, and desert with two or three meals a week.  I'm at least 40lbs heavier now than when I was single.  I'm not even blaming having kids on my weight gain because my before and after weight with each child stayed close to the same (mostly because when I was pregnant I was very vigilant on eating healthy - obviously no wine, but I also cut out junk food - if I could only keep it up.)  I also like to blame my dh because he's adamant that he finds me beautiful.  Really nice, but it doesn't help me get any healthier.  ;)

I've had 3 kids since getting married. I'm 10 lbs heavier, at least 5 of which I kinda needed. I definitely have not let myself go. I have no plans to either. I wasn't previously well kept to land a man. I've been well kept because I like to be.

No... I think I probably look better now than I did when we got married, really (I have a better sense for how to dress, how to wear makeup etc etc now than I had then). I'm kind of a whale right now, because I'm 40+ weeks pregnant, but when I'm not pregnant I'm about the same size as I was when we met. Only difference is now my boobs are crap :( that's what three pregnancies will do to a girl, I guess lol
