My Wedding

You guys, seriously, wow! My heart is exploding at the outpouring of love I felt yesterday as I started blogging and introduced Fit for a Bride to the world! I can’t believe I have 36 ‘Likes’ on Facebook already! Yay! I’m really, really appreciative of those of you who commented on my posts, too! Bloggers LOVE comments and I wasn’t expecting a single one,  so THANK YOU!

I also want to say that I plan to talk a lot about post-wedding weight! I didn’t mention it in my into, but I’m planning a huge series on that topic and hope you’ll tune in! I’m super excited about the interest there!

So, now that I’ve told you my weight loss story, it’s time to talk weddings! After all, this is a wedding blog! As some of you may know, I blogged as Mrs. Brooch on Weddingbee, which was an absolutely wonderful experience, especially because it forced me to write about every detail of our big day! It’s great to be able look back and read all the posts. If you’re interested, you can check out what I said ten days out, twenty days till, about our rehearsal (and hubby’s snicker’s cake), and that fateful morning.

I hope to feature other ‘real weddings’ on Fit for a Bride; in the meantime, here’s a look at ours! All the photos are by the incredibly talented Meredith Perdue & Graham Terhune.

  3. […] My personal trainer back in 2011 advised that I try only eating a handful of certain foods. She knew I was struggling with a busy schedule (dinners with friends and lots of family events). In between I didn’t know what to eat. I wasn’t taught healthy eating principles growing up (unless Five Guys has a lesson I don’t know about!?). So one day she wrote out a very simple meal plan: oatmeal for breakfast, greek yogurt for a snack, salmon and chicken breast for dinner, lots of broccoli, halves of sweet potatoes, and brown rice. (It’s all the same foods I eat today!) For whatever reason, something clicked. I rotated those foods and … well, you know the rest of that story! I felt fantastic on my wedding day! […]
