But first, really quick, I want to take you back through my journey on how I got here.
I never thought I’d ever think so much about diet. Honestly, at first I was surprised anyone would care about what I eat or how I lost 50 pounds. When I started travelling a few years ago for photography, being mindful of what I was putting in my body was just something I was doing; especially with so many temptations of good food around the world, it was a way for me to stay fit and focus for my destination assignments.
I didn't really plan for this diet thing to be anything more than that ...until my clients started asking me how to lose weight to prepare for their wedding shoots. I am no physician, nutritionist or fitness trainer by any means (and I am not trying to play one on the internet either), but I know I've been through enough to help.
To say the least, this was my before and after.
o ... I once weighed over 200 pounds.
You probably will have some questions and comments at the end of this post. I certainly love to hear them.
Looking back at the first picture, I can see why most things I tried did not work. I was lost most of the time because I did not know where to start - there were way too much information. Eventually, I realized that things do not need to be complicated; this loops me back to why I am writing this article which is to condense everything for you, so you can ultimately reach your goal for your wedding shoot. Below, I drew out a road map on my approach. I will talk more in depth about each category in future blog posts.
Now, I understand that every body type responds differently ...however, for someone like me who wasn't born with "skinny genes", this blueprint worked. If your wedding is coming up, I hope the information I am going to share in the future will help you prepare for your special day!
In any case, this is my introduction and I hope that it is a start to many dialogues to come.
Thank you so much for taking the time to read this ...and stay tune for my next post.
