Health Goals for Big Day

Nicole, on March 19, 2022 at 10:33 AM Posted in Fitness and Health 2 7
Hello everyone!
So I have a goal of being under a certain weight by my wedding. My wedding is in January and I’m 11 pounds away from my goal. I will have a new goal after I hit this one. My main reason for this is because I wanna feel my best and have my energy back. Not because I need to look a certain way on the big day. I wanna know, are any of you doing any sort of weight loss or have any health goals for your big day?

    Congratulations on being so close to your goal weight! Great job! I do plan to lose weight anyway, as soon as I have our son. TG I have 6 months after he arrives. I was already losing weight then we got pregnant... again. Hopefully, I can get down to my goal weight.

    I’ve been trying to lose baby weight for 17 years lol but I actually still hope to maybe lose some winter weight as I always feel heaviest in the winter months. I’m not getting my dress altered for a few months in case I lose….

    Good luck reaching your goals! 11 lbs by January is totally achievable! I really just want to focus on feeling good in my skin by the big day. My goal is less of a number and more of just overall toning up and then maintaining once I get my alterations going.

    I'm not necessarily trying to lose weight, but I am trying to be stronger and overall more in shape! I've been doing some light weightlifting and a lot of stationary biking to work on my stamina and muscle tone! There's definitely the added bonus of having more toned arms/back in my sleeveless and low-back dress 😂 But like you, my motivation is mostly health-driven and wanting to feel good on my big day, not by a desire to look a certain way!

    Oh heck yeah! Feeling good and getting energy back is SUCH a huge plus.

    I'm down almost 15lbs. from the beginning of the year, and want to lose 25 more before our wedding next March (I've got time), but losing 30 would be the real goal!

    I've been with my partner for almost 8 years now and within that time I've gained 45lbs, so I want to get back to being healthy (it was a lot of build up of stress, overworking, stress eating as a result, not exercising, not eating super healthy all the time either, etc.)

    I'm still trying to get re-motivated; in January I was working out Mon-Fri at home and eating well, though I've fallen off slightly on the working out since work got busy, but I know I can do this. When I was working out and eating well in Jan and Feb, I was sleeping better and had so much more energy. Sometimes it's hard to stay motivated even when I know doing all those things makes me actually physically and mentally feel better.

    I am just trying to eat the same foods every day that has helped me slim down and lose a couple pounds while being at a slight calorie deficit. It's been working and I got 2 weeks to go.

    I am also just eating healthy and exercising when I can. One of the main health goals I have had for myself other than just diet/exercise is my skin. I have a thoroughly researched skincare regimen now that has made my skin look and feel the best it ever has. I want my skin to look great and not require too much concealing or cover up on the day. What I told my wedding day MUA, LESS IS MORE. I definitely would just like my natural features enhanced and any blemishes covered up but I still want to look like myself and not have too much make up on.
