Getting Started

Ready, set...skinny? Hold on, lady. Rather than using the time leading up to your big day to whittle yourself down to some magic number, take this time to become your healthiest you. In the same way a new year can mark a fresh start, so too can this emerging stage of your relationship. Consider your engagement to be a commitment to yourself -- and let that set the tone for the rest of your marriage.

"It's imperative that a bride spend at least a little time educating herself on weight loss and fitness," says Bode. You don't necessarily have to hit the books and research -- though meeting with a nutritionist or trainer can offer a solid indication of how you might start your regimen -- but do simply get familiar with the basics. Bode advises focusing on what she says are the "four critical principles": cardiovascular exercise, good nutrition, strength training, and stretching. "All four components are necessary to reach your goals in a healthy way," she says.

I've been on many weightloss plans, and none have worked well. I am now on Jon Gabriel's Method, and have lost 40 lbs. in 2 months. The best program. See for yourself

Two months ago a good friend of mine recommended me a book about how to burn fat without following starving diets, by only changing foods and eating habits without needing excessive exercises. I followed the advices in the book and you would not believe I lost 15 lbs by eating normally but changing only what I need. I am very satisfied with the book and recommend to you as well.
