Planning A Wedding? Don’t Forget The Weight Loss!

Filed under: Low-carb Tips — @ March 3, 2007

It’s about that time of year when women all across America are busy organizing, planning, and getting ready for one of the biggest days of their life–THEIR WEDDING DAY! Yessiree, this is the one event that can bring out the best and the worst in so many people who let it encompass and worry to the point that they wonder if it’s even all worth it in the end.

Can I get a witness?! LOL!

Seriously, your wedding is supposed to be a magical moment in your life that you should try to make as “perfect” as possible, but most people would just do well to simply take it all in and enjoy the process because you’ve got the rest of your life to contend with REAL issues that merit your attention. This concludes the relationship advice portion of this blog post. Please deposit $5.00 into the account of J-I-M-M-Y M-O-O-R-E. Hee hee!

There is another aspect of planning a wedding, though, that doesn’t get as much attention as the invitations, the guest list, the cake, and the dress. What is it? You know what it is–losing weight. It’s funny to me to watch the hysteria that happens when a woman is proposed to and she says “yes.” The first thought that crosses her mind is, “Oh, no, I have to go lose weight now for my wedding!” This has always seemed odd to me since that handsome man who asked “Will you marry me?” didn’t attach a rider to that proposal by saying “…and lose 20 pounds.” Hmm, how many women would agree to that?! LOL!

Nevertheless, women put this pressure on themselves to lose weight and it has become as much a part of the tradition of holy matrimony as anything else. One of my newest readers who is getting married in September and says “wants to look my best” e-mailed me this week about how to lose those 20 pounds the low-carb way.
