Many engaged couples find themselves in a less than happy or healthy place physically and want to change that before the big day. Below are some tips from our contributing columnist Dave Sweeny. I hope Dave's inspirational story and encouragement will jump start your weight loss and healthy living journey.

For the past 3 years, I have committed myself to a new, healthy lifestyle, and for the past 4 months, I’ve been helping others do the same! Here are 4 tips to better health.
- Be mentally prepared for change. You have to get to the point where you say “enough is enough” and are willing to do what it takes to reach your goals.
- Find support. Too many people try to change their health on their own, but because they don’t have anyone to go to when they have questions, someone there to encourage and support them every day, they are more than likely to fall off the wagon.
- COMMIT TO THE NUTRITION! One of the biggest factors in getting great fitness/weight loss results is to follow a proven nutrition plan as close as possible. Results come from 80% diet and 20% workouts, and that’s not an exaggeration either.
- Be in it for the long run. If you’re going to start, make it a priority to commit to a LIFESTYLE change, not just a 90 day change. Once you work out and eat healthy every day over a period of time, it becomes routine and second nature to where you just do it, not having to think about it whatsoever.
If you’re looking to get fit and healthy before your wedding and beyond, I can help you for free. You always have time for fitness, whether it’s 10 minutes or an hour.
