Your wedding is few weeks away? want to get fit in your favorite bridal dress? want to lose some weight in short time?Here are some ideas and tips that may help you to lose your weight before your big day.
1.Track your food.That means all of it, from the spoonful of soup you sampled for your reception menu to the little bites of cake you taste. These “hidden” calories are easy to gloss over but can really add up. Plus, research shows that the simple act of tracking your food can he (mental tracking does not count). If you do nothing else during the final days and weeks before your wedding, track your food diligently every day.
2. Sample smart. if you know you’re going to be sampling a variety of foods in a short period of time, keep the portions small. Just one or two bites of cake. If you know you’re going to sample a variety of sweets one day, cut back on sugary foods for the next few days to get back on track.
3.Eat breakfast. Breakfast is the easiest meal to prepare and it sets the stage for your day. Eat a healthful breakfast to get your metabolism fired up, and then you’ll be more likely to make healthy choices throughout the day like ordering a smart lunch and swinging by the gym after work.
4.Make fitness a priority. Fitness is important. Don’t let your workouts go by the wayside. If anything, you should be trying to work out more than before if you really want to drop a few pounds, especially around the days that you’re sampling all of that rich and delicious food. With a hectic schedule, how will you fit it in?
5.Do workout. You wouldn’t miss your cake tasting, pre-marriage counseling session or dress fitting, would you? Add your workouts to your calendar so that other obligations don’t get in the way of your gym time. When meeting to discuss plans with your fiance, parents, bridal party or wedding planner, head out for a walk (or pace around the room if you’re on the phone) for a little multitasking.
6.Get support. It can be tough to stay strong and accountable to your goals if you don’t have anyone else cheering you on. It can be even more difficult to do so when people are trying to sabotage your efforts , perhaps unknowingly. The best way to get support is to tell some one about your weight and fitness goals and ask for their support.
7.Don’t make mountains out of molehills.It’s easy to go over your calories one day and feel like a failure. But remember that it takes much more than one day of overeating to thwart your progress. Accept your slip-ups, learn from them and move on.
8.Maintain an active lifestyle.Remember that “running” errands as you plan your wedding isn’t the same as actually running—or exercising for that matter. Don’t confuse busyness with fitness. The more physical activity you can add to your days the better off you’ll be.
9. Don’t let yourself get to hungry. Between smart snacking and balanced meals, keeping your body properly fueled can help you keep hunger at bay.Eating too less, on the other hand, creates monstrous cravings that are too hard to ignore. When you let yourself become ravenous, you’ll grab anything, and usually a lot of it, to quell your discomfort. Keep hunger at bay with proper planning. Bring snacks with you. Keep healthy options on hand. And never go more than 4 hours without eating.
10. Drink enough water. Recent studies found that when people drink more water throughout the day, they end up eating fewer total calories. drinking water before each meal results in greater weight loss. Water can help fill you up longer. Keep a cup of water in hand at parties, sip water between bites, and meet your daily quota to help prevent overeating.
11.Wake up with exercise.People who exercise first thing in the morning are more likely to exercise regularly than those who exercise later in the day. Even if you’re not a morning person yet, a.m. workouts might be the best way to squeeze fitness into your days before other things come up. Plus, when you exercise first, you’re less likely to overindulge with food later.
12. Slow down. savor your food and the experience of eating. You’ll eat less, feel more satisfied, and recognize feelings of hunger before it’s too late.
13. Keep your eye on the prize. Before you take a bite or hit snooze instead of hitting the gym, remember your goals. It’s going to take work to reach your goals, and it won’t always be easy. Before you act, ask yourself, “Will this help me achieve my goal by my wedding day?” If not, make another decision. And remember that YOU are in control of your life and your choices.
