I gained weight and now my wedding dress doesn't fit
Help! I gained weight and now my wedding dress doesn't fit!
As a dietitian, I understand that the months leading up to your wedding day can be stressful and overwhelming. Between choosing the perfect venue, picking out flowers, and sending out invitations, it can be easy to let your healthy habits fall by the wayside.
Unfortunately, this can often result in weight gain, which can cause a whole new set of problems, including the frustration of a wedding dress that no longer fits.
If you find yourself in this situation, the first thing to remember is that you are not alone. Many brides-to-be experience weight gain during their engagement, and it's important not to beat yourself up about it. Instead, focus on finding a solution that works for you and your unique situation.
One thing you can do is to assess your current eating habits and make changes where necessary. Are you consuming too many high-calorie foods or skipping meals? Are you drinking enough water? These are all factors that can contribute to weight gain. By making small, sustainable changes to your diet, you can start to see progress towards your weight loss goals.
In addition to changing your eating habits, it's important to incorporate physical activity into your routine. This can be as simple as going for a daily walk or taking a yoga class. Not only will exercise help you shed unwanted pounds, but it will also help relieve stress and boost your mood.
Of course, losing weight and getting back into your wedding dress is easier said than done. That's why it's important to seek the help of a professional.
