Your wedding should be a magical day. And looking great is a must. If you are a little overweight, here are some wedding weight loss tips that will help you lose weight. It’s not hard to do but you have to be realistic.
Time. Time is key. If you are getting married on the spur of the moment, losing weight is out of the question. You didn’t get your excess weight overnight, so you can’t lose it overnight. Besides you have to take care of more urgent things, like planning your wedding.
Stop drinking soft drinks and alcohol. They contain lots of empty calories that keep you fat and make you fatter. A food journal is very helpful for making sure you don’t slip, and drink a coke involuntarily. Old habits die hard, but for your wedding you must get past them.
Drink plenty of water. Water has zero calories. It helps cleanse your body, speeds up your metabolism and helps you control your hunger. And the best part is: your body needs water to burn up fats during their processing in your body.
Get on a healthy diet. Start eating only organic whole food. Cook all your meals at home. You don’t have to starve yourself. Eat until you don’t feel hungry, but don’t overdo it and stuff yourself. Moderation is key.
Healthy food is the best food you can eat. It won’t only help you lose weight. It will also help you be more healthy. Your skin will be beautiful on your wedding day, you will be energized, filled with joie du vivre. This will make your wedding the best wedding of the year.
Exercise. By toning your muscles, you get to tuck your flab in, creating the illusion of a slimmer body. The scale might not budge one inch, or you might even see a light increase in weight (remember that muscle tissue weights more than fat tissue).
You might not like exercising, but you have to do it. The good news is that you don’t have to kill yourself working out. You just have to be smart about it.
Before each meal exercise for 5 minutes. You don’t need any special equipment. You body weight will be more than enough. Do some squats, ab crunches, pushups … all those exercises you used to hate back in school.
If you have any home exercise equipment, use it. But remember that as long you have your body you have your gym with you.
The pre-eating exercise will cut your appetite, which in turn will make it super easy to eat less.
90 minutes after you eat, do another 5 minutes of exercising. This workout routine will redirect the excess calories from the meal you ate before to your muscles instead of fat. Your body will use those calories to repair your muscles, and make them more lean.
If you can’t exercise before and after each meal, make sure you do it at least before and after the main meal of the day. You will get great results by doing it.
Just by implementing the above wedding weight loss tips you will be in great shape at your wedding. By following the above plan, you can lose between 7 lbs and 15 lbs per month. The more weight you want to lose, the more it will take. So please make sure you have enough time available. That way you will avoid disappointment.
Attention: make sure the wedding dress you choose can be modified easily if you plan to lose weight before your wedding. There is nothing worse than having a great body on your wedding day, and a wedding dress that doesn’t complement it.
