Stress-free Wedding Weight Loss

Jan 13, 2008
Brides often feel the need to lose some weight before their wedding. For some it's just a few pounds to fit into that perfect dress. Others want to drop several sizes to look perfectly fit. But weddings are stressful enough without constantly worrying about your weight. Getting started early can help you lose those unwanted pounds without stressing out. Remember, there are a several off-the-shelf diet products but you should be careful as not all of them are healthy for you! In fact, I would caution you to focus just on dieting and exercise. Please read on.

Whether you are looking to lose five or fifty pounds, it's not a bad idea to begin your efforts as soon as you set a date. Giving yourself plenty of time reduces the stress factor and allows time to correct any setbacks you may have. It's also healthier to lose weight gradually.

Eating sensibly is important to weight loss. There are diet plans available for those who have trouble with this. You can choose one that simply helps you plan your own meals or one in which you buy prepackaged meals. There are enough diets available that you should be able to find something that you can live with.

While diet is important, exercise is essential if you want to lose weight. But exercise doesn't have to be dull and boring. Finding something you enjoy doing will make exercising fun and help you stick with it. Sports, such as basketball, where you stay in motion most of the time are good for weight loss. Walking is also easy to stick to if you enjoy it, especially if you have a partner to walk with. Gradually increasing your speed and distance will help you drop weight faster.

If you enjoy doing things in a social setting, joining a gym might be a good option for you. Gyms usually offer a variety of exercise machines and classes, so if you get bored easily you can simply switch to something else. The instructors there can also be a great help in coming up with a fitness plan. Finding a friend or relative to join and go along with you can provide motivation.

Some prefer not to exercise in front of others, but they have options as well. There are many and varied exercise videos on the market today that you can use in the comfort of your own home. There are also exercise shows on TV that you can follow along with. Home fitness equipment can be found in stores or ordered, or you can often find machines secondhand at reduced prices. Staying motivated is a bit trickier when you're doing it on your own, so find ways to reward yourself when you reach certain milestones.

Losing weight doesn't have to contribute to your wedding jitters. By getting a head start, you have time to find something you enjoy doing to shed those extra pounds. And when you're having fun, weight loss doesn't seem like such a chore.
