Wedding Work out Inspiration
My husband and I have gained an extra 10 kilos of body weight since we first met – we honestly look pregnant (both of us!) but I guess thats what happens when you are in love (or in my case: eat too many cupcakes) So i was inspired when I read this news article in the Daily mail about this groom who lost 9 stones after his wedding photos.
Karl Indge, 25, an engineer was 20 stone 9lbs when he married his high school sweetheart Kim, 22, in April 2009. He said that when he saw his wedding photos, he felt his weight had ruined the entire album. As soon as he returned from his honeymoon, he joined his local Slimming World group. He also cut out his 5 days a week takeaway habit and started exercising. He said that he no longer suffers the embarrassment of being unable to pull his tray table down on holiday flights, and that climbing ladders at work no longer leaves him breathless.
Of the change he said “I didn’t realise I’d put on so much weight because the way you look at yourself every day in the mirror is a gradual thing. But looking at the pictures I just thought, ‘I’ve ruined them,’ because my wife looked so beautiful and I just didn’t. My lovely wife disagreed of course, but that was the shock I needed to force me into change.”
He added “I feel amazing – like it’s given me my life back. I dread to think if I’d carried on eating the way I was, and not exercising, what could have happened. I think I’ve prolonged my life – by looking at my wedding photos. It’s quite amazing. And I’m lucky that I’ve done it while I’m young enough to really change my life.’
Isnt this quite the inspiration? Whether you need to just tone up or looking to lose a little bit of weight before or after the wedding, I think we can all learn from this amazing man and his equally sweet wife.
