I Am Not Losing Weight For My Wedding Day | rosie abigail

I’ve got a chubby belly. Arms that wobble. Thighs thicker than a bowl of oatmeal. And I’m not losing any of it for my wedding.  Not that it should be anyone’s business. My body, my rules after all. However, since I got engaged almost two years ago, I’ve felt that pendulum start swinging - one…
