You have the perfect ring and the perfect wedding dress, but are you still trying to attain the perfect body? Preparing for your wedding day can be stressful, as it’s the one day that all eyes are truly on you. Include the following tips in your weight loss plan so you can you achieve your best body and look back on your wedding pictures fondly.
Watch your portion sizes - whether you’re joining friends for an engagement party, making wedding plans with the girls over lunch, or meeting your man at the hottest restaurant to finalize your attendance list, it’s important to pay attention to your portion sizes. Remember, you don’t have to eat everything on your plate. You can also make wise meal selections such as salads with dressing on the side, grilled chicken breasts and broiled fish.
Limit your alcohol consumption - since you will likely be attending a ton of pre-wedding day soirées, alcohol may definitely be a factor in your pre-wedding weight loss plan. Not only is alcohol extremely calorie-dense, with one gram contains seven calories, but it also reduces your inhibitions and may make you more likely to indulge on that pizza or fried cheese sticks. It’s okay to enjoy the parties, but be sure to limit your alcohol consumption if you want to look your best in your wedding dress.
Make a vow to get active - grab your fiancé or recruit your bridesmaids and get moving! Don’t have time to hit the gym? Go for a walk or bike ride. Combine getting active with planning your wedding. You may be busy making all the last minute adjustments to your wedding plan, but if you don’t stay active, the one adjustment you might have to make will be to your dress.
Commit to your goals - determine what your goals are for your wedding weight loss plan and strategically map out how you want to achieve them. If you celebrate each milestone you achieve, meeting your final goal will be that much easier. For weight loss that’ll last past your honeymoon, don’t try to lose more than 1-2 pounds a week. Stick to your weight loss plan and monitor your progress, and that dream of looking your best on your big day will become a reality.
