7 Simple Ways to Lose Weight Before Your Wedding

Your wedding day is no doubt one of the most important days of your life, so you’ll want to look and feel your most healthy and best self. To help you get started, here are some fitness and weight loss tips from our Calgary personal trainer.

It’s no surprise that brides (and grooms) often feel a lot of pressure to look their best on their wedding day. Not only is there the worry of fitting into your dress, or suit, but an endless amount of photographs will also be taken throughout the day.

Unsurprisingly, over 90% of brides hope to shed extra pounds before the wedding day. Unfortunately, many of them resort to crash dieting in an extreme bid to get the weight loss goals they desire.

However, it’s not a good thing to stress your body at an already stressful time, so if you have recently become engaged you may want to consider:

  • Joining a health club
  • Investing in the services of a personal trainer
  • Seeing a nutrition coach
  • Making some lifestyle changes

Remember: Crash dieting will simply cause you more stress, set you up for a lifetime of yo-yo dieting rather than permanent weight loss, and may even result in some serious health consequences.

7 Weight Loss Tips For Brides and Grooms to Be

It’s natural for brides and grooms to want to look their best for their wedding day. However, going about it the right way is very important and can make all the difference to your physical, emotional, and mental state leading up to the big day.

To avoid the stress of crash dieting and extreme weight loss programs before your wedding, here are 7 simple tips to follow:

  1. Start as soon as you can. By waiting until a week before your big day to start losing weight, you’ll simply add to your wedding stress. Begin making changes to your diet and exercise routine early on so you can enjoy steady (and healthy) weight loss.

  1. Set short-term goals. Achieving weight loss goals can be very overwhelming, so rather than focusing on a huge goal, try to break it down into smaller and more reachable goals (eg. losing 5-10 lbs a month).

  2. Commit to a workout plan. To lose weight for your wedding, you must be committed and dedicated to your goals. Hiring a personal trainer is an excellent way to not only set up an effective workout routine, but also to stay accountable and on-track.

  1. Make time for your workouts. With all the busyness of wedding planning, it’s easy to let your exercise time get lost, but doing so will simply derail you. One of the easiest ways of avoiding this is by working out first thing in the morning, when there are no other distractions.

  1. Make smart diet changes. Crash dieting is not only stressful, but it is also unhealthy and won’t give you the long-term results you want. Instead, consider working with a nutrition coach and making simple lifestyle changes, such as eliminating processed food and excess sugar from your diet.

  1. Keep healthy snacks on hand. Spending the day running wedding errands can leave you feeling very hungry and tired. This makes it easier to fall into the junk food trap. So plan your meals ahead of time and always keep plenty of healthy snacks on hand, such as apples, popcorn, or trail mix.

  1. Buddy up. Whether it’s your spouse-to-be or a bridesmaid, chances are someone else in the wedding party wants to shed some pounds for the big day too. Partner up with that person and the extra motivation will keep you going during the hardest parts of your program.
