Michelle Obama and I Both Feel Good About Our Weight.

Okay, actually, I am not privy to that sort of insider Obama info. And neither is Rush Limbaugh, which is why I’m busy being mad at him today over on Never Say Diet.

But I had to go for the convoluted post title because, in other fun guest posting news, I’m also over on 2000 Dollar Wedding, talking about why I ditched my bathroom scale for several months before my wedding — and you just might want to do the same. It’s part 1 in a three-part series I’m doing over there, about all the ways we pay for pretty when we get married. I know. There are a lot. Stay tuned for parts 2 and 3 in the next few weeks!

Yup, that’s even me in the white dress up there.

So, wow, you have a lot of clicking to do. Rush Limbaugh! Weddings! Hopefully not together! Enjoy.

  1. I commented over there but wanted to add here that when I talked with the bridal makeup artist, she said that she loved doing brides in part because it meant that she was always working with people who were really ready to feel beautiful–working with people who were so present and radiant made her job both more joyous and even easier. I think that this gets lost in the idea of the beautiful bride–on one hand we all know it (that’s why we use the term) and know that it doesn’t come from looking like some Photoshopped version of yourself, but the industry works so hard in a specific way to fight against that.

    I’m guessing that the bridal industry is using the tactic of “you deserve it! it’s your wedding!” to push all the diet/beauty products (I’m unmarried so I haven’t seen much bridal stuff, so I’m just going off of what little I do know)–which seems like it could potentially be empowering and a nice change from “fix this, fix this!”, until you look at it for more than two seconds and see what’s going on there.
