Wedding Weight Loss Ideas
You're engaged! YAY! Now, time to go wedding dress shopping! This should be the MOST exciting time of your life. However, this can be hard. First, because wedding dress sizes are WAY off. Oh, you normally wear a size 10? Cool, try to squeeze into a size 16 wedding dress.....talk about a confidence killer. When I got engaged I was a size 16, so I knew I had to go somewhere that offered plus size options and I knew I would be stuck paying the "Plus Size Tax" and it really limited my options.
After purchasing my dress, (yes, I had to pay $100 extra because it was "plus size") I looked at myself in the pictures and thought, "This isn't how I want to look on my wedding day." Now, let me say a couple of things, 1) I have always been very body positive and confident. I never struggled with self esteem, but I had let myself get bigger than I meant to (I gained allll the happy dating weight) and I didn't feel like myself. 2) I don't think that being "plus size" is bad. It's not. Most of the fitness and nutrition models that I follow are far from "tiny" and don't want to be. BUT, I was not "healthy" in any way, shape, or form. I literally ate and drank whatever I wanted, whenever I wanted! This is a change I chose to make on my own and for myself.
Here are a few ideas to help you get to your goal!
