There's no question this must be excruciatingly difficult on the entire family.

Mariah Carey is SERIOUSLY dieting in order to reach her ideal wedding weight.
On Wednesday, it was reported that the chart topper is actively trying to lose 20 pounds by her August nuptials to billionaire beau James Packer. Whoa!
A source dished to DailyMail:
"Mariah is so excited about her wedding."
"Mariah is only eating four ounces of grilled chicken, lean beef or one of her favorites, broiled Chilean Sea Bass or grilled shrimp with grilled asparagus."
Not to mention, MiMi has been skipping breakfast and waiting until noon to indulge in a smoothie or a protein shake.
The confidant added:
"She is also eating some of her favorites like baked salmon, chicken salad - with light mayo or mustard - and sushi. Mariah also loves cheese, so sometimes she will have some Brie on low fat crackers as a snack."
Hmm, we hope that Miz Carey is attempting to lose this weight loss in a HEALTHY way. Although there is one treat that Mariah is refusing to cut out and that's — red wine. Of course!
Supposedly, MiMi was told she can have one glass a day and the A-lister makes sure that she imbibes a bit at dinner. The source relayed:
"Mariah hates dieting because she loves to eat and she in Europe right now on tour, so it's difficult to stay on course with so much wonderful food around her all of the time, but she wants to have an hour-glass figure so she can have a very tight, sexy, figure-hugging gown. Mariah says she has to be very disciplined because she wants to take James' breath away when he sees her for the first time in her wedding gown."
Aww! Still we'd like to point out that the Australian native proposed to the hit maker at her current weight so we don't think she should be stressing out too badly about getting skinnier.
The source concluded:
"Mariah says this will be her last marriage, that the third time is a charm, so she is determined to be the most beautiful bride the world has ever seen."
Here's hoping that's true! Good luck with everything Mariah.
