LOSING WEIGHT THE SAFE WAY BEFORE YOU SAY “I DO”
The big day can cause women and men to feel the need to shed weight. It can cause insecurities and can also lead to unhealthy decisions. Losing weight may not be simple, but there are many healthy slim-down options to prepare you for the big day.
Exercising at least three times a week can make a huge difference. Try to find what works best for your body. Cardio might not be the answer for everyone but moving your body will definitely help. Once you start building strength and gaining confidence at the gym, start increasing your gym days. But always remember to listen to your body and start at your own pace.
On the other hand, strict fad diets are considered to be an unhealthy way to prepare your body for the big day. It can cause stress and be more harmful than good. Fad diets can cause you to quit your progress and actually make you fluctuate in weight. Incorporating healthier eating habits that do not restrict your eating choices can help you obtain more successful results. The best option is to add healthy meals to your diet plan and avoid eating any sugar-based and fast food options as much as possible. It’s not wrong to eat a burger from your favorite fast food joint once in a blue moon; depriving yourself of something you enjoy can actually result in weight gain. Ignoring a craving can cause you to one day just cave. It will result in losing sight of your goals and throw away all the progress made. Moderation is key. Eat what you want, but be smart about it. If you have a favorite snack and you can find an alternative that’s less processed and still taste great. If you want Ben and Jerry’s ice cream for dessert eat some! Just not the whole pint in one go.
Moreover, staying hydrated can help improve the look of your skin and its texture. It can also keep your organs functioning, while simultaneously improving the quality of your sleep. By adding berries and other fruits to your water, it can enhance the flavor making it easier to enjoy and drink throughout the day. The ultimate goal is to try and drink at least 10 cups of water a day; however, depending on your body type, this amount may vary.
Nonetheless, the most difficult part about weight management is keeping stress at bay. As you may know, stress can make it even more difficult to lose weight. It can cause you to worry and make you feel as though your goals are unachievable and hard to reach. However, patience is the key. It is important to remember that results won’t be visible overnight but staying focused on your goal and remaining calm can lead to a healthier lifestyle and prepare you for that big special day!
