bridedietHave I mentioned how much I hate the word diet? DIET. Yuck. Normally I say something like “lifestyle change” or “healthy eating habits”. But—dare I say it—diet is easier for my mouth to spit out.

So “The Bride Diet” it is. The “be less fat for the wedding” diet.

Today marks the beginning of Week 3 of The Bride Diet and while I haven’t lost weight, I’ve improved my eating and exercise habits and I think any improvement is worth celebrating. YAY ME!

In terms of my eating habits, I’m trying to follow the low-gi and CSIRO’s Total Wellbeing Diet systems. Input versus output—y’know, the basics of eating well.

My exercise regime has been pretty much non-existent for the last year, so there’s definitely room for improvement there.

Baby steps. Credit where credit’s due. Patting myself on the back for progress, as small as it might be. Like the block of white chocolate that is staring at me as I type. I still haven’t touched it. YAY ME!

It’s funny how people have methods and theories on weightloss and how willingly they share this information when they hear of someone else attempting to shift the fat. I heard a doozy today that I’ve actually found is working quite well; I’ll have to see if it works again tomorrow!

I’m going to attempt to share my process with you; the food, the exercise, the whacky tips and tricks I pick up along the way.

Should be interesting!

  3. Good luck! I wish I could provide some kind of helpful statement, but I’ve got nothing. Perhaps I’ll pick a thing or two up from your posts. :)
