Transformation to a New You
Transformation sounds like something you might be resistant too – why change a good thing? But most brides have at least a few things they’d like to change (mostly on their bodies) before the big day. Your wedding day will probably be the most photographed day of your life. That is, unless you’re Heidi Klum. We’re not all supermodels, but you can sure look and feel like one on your big day! Plus, the camera adds 10 lbs…so why not make the playing course fair? With so many camera bulbs flashing in your direction, it’s important to feel and look your best. You don’t want to have to worry about “sucking it in” or if you have two chins. Or worse…the dreaded back fat.
Knowing that all eyes are on you can add extra motivation to get into shape. You’ve got the groom, the venue, the meal, the bridesmaids…now you need to focus on YOU! Most brides on average want to lose between 10-15 lbs to fit into their “princess perfect”dress. According to fitness experts, bride-to-be’s are some of the most driven exercise addicts. And while you’re at it, it might turn into a healthier way of life for you in the long run.
Twelve weeks is the ideal amount of time to see real transformation in your body utilizing both diet and exercise. However, it is not recommended for anything less than six weeks for you to start a major diet. Losing weight too fast is a no-no. It is extremely unhealthy and puts a lot of strain on your organs. Also, consider your dress fittings while losing weight. Typically, dress fittings happen over a few weeks time and or a week or two before the wedding for a final fitting. You don’t want to lose weight between that time period because your outfit might not fit as well as you would like. There is a difference between looking healthy and looking like a skeleton.
Transformation of any kind takes time, dedication and knowledge. We will help educate you on meal plans, exercise regimes and training tips!
