Eating Disorders Expert
Congratulations on your engagement. Okay, I know that every bride (and groom) wants to look their best when they walk down the isle. Nothing wrong with that, but if you are considering anything radical to lose weight, think twice. If anything, I suggest that you consult with a dietician and eat in a sensible way. If you cannot afford a dietician, please email me and I will suggest one of the very few good commercial dietary programmes available. I do not want to advertise them here. What weight (and inches) you lose in the next five months must be as a result of sensible eating and moderate exercise. Do something radical and you will not only be unhealthy, predispose yourself to weight gain after a short while, but your fiancé will be marrying a grumpy zombie. Hmmm, that is not okay. Lebo, your partner loves you for who you are, tummy and all. That does not mean that you should neglect your health or appearance, but get perspective here. Look after yourself now, as you will be making the best investment in your relationship with you and your marriage. Does this make sense? All the best for your preparations (I’m talking about your whole wedding), and your long life together with your partner.
