KRISTINA: Between working a full-time job and planning this little wedding shindig (and the 115 degree temperature) I can’t think about fitness plans and exercise. Now, I’ll admit, I’m lucky. I’m thin and I don’t really have to think all that much about what I eat. Still I’m soft and jiggly in certain places. But unless I go to a trainer from hell and make this a central purpose in my life, which isn’t happening so fast, that’s not gonna change. Besides, if I get in shape for my wedding pictures and then let myself go downhill afterwards, I’ll be forced to answer my childrens’ questions about why mommy couldn’t keep it together.
Perhaps these are the brave words of a bride who has yet to go to her first gown fitting.
