Wave goodbye to wedding weight gain

As Harry and Meghan's big day approaches, this royal affair has got us fired up about post-wedding weight gain. Research shows that both men and women gain an average of 4lbs after they say ‘I do’ – however, with Slimming World, there’s no need to put on pounds!

It's a familiar scenario. The feeling of contentment that goes hand-in-hand with the start of married life often sees couples being a little more indulgent than they were in the run up to their wedding – think a glass of wine with dinner, a takeaway in front of the television or a romantic meal out.

Plus, many brides- and grooms-to-be might have embarked on strict weight loss plans to slim down ahead of their big day and, as they slip back into old habits, it’s likely the weight they lost will go back on – perhaps with more besides.

If you’d like to lose weight, whether it’s for your wedding day or that of someone close to you, or if you’re recently married and you’re looking to lose weight you’ve gained, Slimming World is right up your aisle!

These gorgeous brides lost weight with Slimming World. 

  • Laura Williams lost a fantastic 4st 5lbs to wear her dream wedding dress and shares her advice for staying slim and happy.
  • Hollie Majthenyi got married in 2017 after losing 1st 8lbs and feeling like a princess on her big day!

The beauty of Slimming World is that it’s not about losing weight in your own little bubble – you’re part of a friendly, supportive group. The feeling of togetherness is boosted even further when people (including couples), decide to lose weight together.

Graeme and Lisa Wharton celebrated their 20th wedding anniversary by losing 10st and hitting their weight loss targets.
