If you are one of those brides, be sure to read up on different ways to shape up before the big day. Too much research is never a bad thing.
Visit your local gym and ask to speak with a personal trainer. Many times you can speak with someone who will take your Body Mass Index (BMI) and put you through a fitness test. Once finished, they can talk to you about areas that need improvement and the best exercises to implement. At most gyms, you do not have to sign up to work with the trainer every time you work out. But, can pay for this one time service and then outline a work-out regime on your own time.
Better Food Choices
With that being said, go for eating as many natural non-processed foods as possible. The first step to getting in shape is watching what type of food you are ingesting into your body. Those frozen meals that boast being good for you, may be in some ways but many have high amounts of sodium which aids in packing on water weight. Convenient, inexpensive foods are often over-processed foods that contain high amounts of calories.
When in doubt the more natural the better.

Maintaining Your New Habits
Keep focused, and surround yourself with people who will love and support you making healthy decisions. Also, keep trying that dress on every time you lose some weight so you can see how far you have come.
More important than fitting into the dress is maintaining a healthy lifestyle so that you have many, more years to celebrate your marriage!
