While Brides may romanticize the days and months after the wedding as filled with domestic bliss with you and your new Groom setting up your new home and settling into a routine together, The New Indian Bride is learning one hidden little secret about the post-wedding journey. All that settling down translates into extra, unwanted pounds settling all around your body! Simply put, getting married makes you fat!
After spending months leading up to the wedding squatting, crunching and running to get myself ten pounds lighter for the wedding, I have spent the almost six months since my wedding not having a care in the world when it comes to food. If I felt like an extra helping of dinner, I indulged. If I felt like a bit of ice cream for dessert, I indulged. If I felt like a pastry for breakfast, I indulged. Before the wedding I watched my portion sizes like a hawk, stayed clear of dessert and processed foods, forget about it! I wouldn’t even come near it.
Now it is officially time to make a change.
The New Indian Bride is getting back on track and returning to her good eating ways. The plan is simple. Eat more good stuff, eliminate the bad stuff, no more sweets, no more desserts, no more pastries, reduce carbs, increase proteins and reduce portion sizes. Oh and workout more – walking, yoga, other forms of fitness at least 3 times a week (hopefully more).
I want to get rid of these extra pounds and get myself into the best shape of my life. That is my committment to myself and that committment starts now! Every Monday I will share with my fabulous TNIB readers my weekly food and workout journey. Watch me shed the pounds and even better join me in the process. We can do this together!
Are you ready? I am.
