I am pretty sure that one of the most exciting things about planning a wedding is getting to go shopping for your dress. But, with this excitement can come the shear paranoia and anxiety of getting half naked in front of a complete stranger, and hoping that if you suck in enough, the size zero sample really will zip up. I notice more and more, when cruising around other bridal blogs, that losing weight to look great in your dress is an ongoing theme. I know that I fall into this category, I mean, who doesn't want to look amazing on her big day? However, I offer the notion, of rather than crash dieting and cutting out food groups in order to lose the last 5lbs, what if you made an investment in your overall health, learning to lose the weight in the appropriate manner, so that the 5lbs you lost, doesn't become 15lbs that you gain back.
In step Maura Manzo, a health counselor who will work one-on-one with her clients to help them lose weight, achieve balance in their lives, and lower stress levels all around. Maura will design a program specific to your needs and goals, and will work with you over the course of three to six months to see that your goals are met. The idea is to create new, healthy habits that stay with you. It is not about what you can’t do or can’t eat – it’s all about what works best you. Head on over to her website to learn more about the program, and take the first step to not only becoming a beautiful, and healthy bride; but a beautiful, and healthy you.
