Lose Those Extra Pounds On Your Wedding Day

Lose Those Extra Pounds On Your Wedding Day

I know you want to look perfect on her wedding day, every bride does. By selecting that perfect dress that will make you look and feel amazing is an important first step. But what happens when you look in the mirror and notice trouble spots like saggy arms or unsightly folds on your back? When this happens it’s not uncommon for brides to try those crazy quick-fix diets to help them get in shape, which we all know won’t work. Unfortunately, many dieting brides make fitness mistakes that not only prevent them from reaching their goals but also cause them tons more unnecessary stress and sometimes even feeling sick. Those are two things no bride needs! Here are five of the most common diet mistakes as well as some tips to help you avoid them.

  1. Trying to lose Too much, way too late.

Important things to remember if you are trying to lose weight is to start early. For example, don’t try to lose 20 pounds one month before the big day. The key is to plan ahead so that you can lose the weight (or even just to tone up). So if you’re goal for your dream-wedding day includes you being in great shape, then include fitness as a “to-do” on your wedding checklist. That way it will be a priority in your wedding planning.

      2.  Crazy diets or fitness programs.

Brides are usually short on time and has a very long  to-do lists. This leads many to try unhealthy fitness programs or starvation diets. Don’t be tempted by diets that promise quick, drastic results with little effort from you. You should avoid any programs that suggest taking “diet” pills or eating unbalanced meals (like eating only cabbage soup for a week). And, don’t be lured into trying dangerous things, like laxatives. You will cause more harm than good.

     3.  Setting unrealistic goals.

Many women get engaged and begin imagining themselves drastically thinner for their wedding day. Be realistic with yourself. If you’ve never been a size 6 in your life, then it is probably unrealistic to think you can magically transform just because you are getting married. And, do you really want to look so different on your wedding day that most people (including your fiancé) hardly recognize you? Just be yourself this is the reason why he is marrying you in the first place.

    4.   Never Skip Meals

It’s not uncommon to get caught up in your planning and then realize at 8 p.m. that you haven’t eaten a thing all day. Not only is skipping meals unhealthy, it can lead to binge eating. That often means eating very fattening foods and/or overeating all at once. By avoiding this, try packing light snacks to keep on hand throughout the day. Some examples include carrot sticks, nuts, piece of fruit, peanut butter on crackers, etc.

    5.  Not exercising.

I know its very easy for brides to say “I’m too tired to exercise”or  “I don’t have time to exercise”. Healthy eating and exercise always go hand in hand. Without exercise your body can’t burn as many calories. If you are very short on time, try to exercise in small 10-minute bursts throughout the day. And, keep in mind that little things help too, like taking the stairs or parking further away to have a nice walk. Plus exercise will give you more energy throughout the day.

Getting in shape doesn’t have to be complicated and it doesn’t require a lot of time, below are some sample plans to help you get started. Keep in mind that the most important thing is for a bride to feel good about herself. And no matter what size or shape, all brides are beautiful on their wedding day!

Sample Exercise FITscription:

20-30 minutes of cardiovascular exercise (3-5 time per week)

Example: 2-5 minutes of brisk walking, 2-5 minutes of jumping jacks (repeat for 20-30 minutes)

20-30 minutes of strength training (2-3 times per week)

Example: Dumbbell exercises for both the upper and lower body (like bicep curls, tricep dips, squats, etc.)
