So you are starting to contact potential vendors and planning every detail of your wedding. Setting one’s fitness goals and how to achieve them before the wedding day is probably one of the biggest, ongoing challenges for the brides-to-be. The added pressure of the upcoming wedding gives a whole different set of challenges.

Here, we have some fundamental tips and ideas to assist you to begin your weight loss journey.


Check the calories in your diet

The food you currently eat and then what changes to make to reach your fitness goals. Knowing the quality and quantity of the food you eat can greatly affect weight loss and your general health. A good first step and one we recommend is using online programs, like myfitnesspal.com or myplate.com. These two can help you plan healthy menus and record the calories you consume.


Eat your breakfast

Why breakfast you might ask? According to sources, having breakfast will aid control hunger and cravings later in the day. Breakfast also kick-starts your energy and allowing for better focus and performance during the day. However, remember that the benefits will vary on what it is that you are eating.




Exercise is one of the essential part of losing weight. Remember, being active offers a lot of benefits. It will aid burning calories and speed up metabolism. It can also aid with any potential stress that can arise as you plan your dream wedding.



Drink water

Water has an essential part in our overall health. Our systems use water in digestion, cellular development, and muscular health. However, the suggested amount of water can differ from person to person. Want to know if you’re hydrated? Check your body. Always remember that water is your best choice to support your healthy habits.


Getting enough sleep

Having enough rest is just another part in bettering your overall health. Just like an electronic device that needs to be recharged, sleep is to our bodies. All through the sleep cycle, our mind and body can recuperate. With enough sleep, it can help you be more attentive, energized, and better cope with stress. With less sleep, it will limit your body’s ability. It will also not give you time to repair itself. Hence, it takes a toll on your health.
