Karina's Secrets to Getting in Wedding Shape:

1. Give It Time

"I knew I didn't just want to lose a few pounds! I wanted to totally reshape my body, and I knew that was going to take more than a few weeks of watching what I ate."

"I was determined to always work out at least three times every week, and I stuck with that."

1. Slow and Steady Wins the Wedding Weight-Loss Race

"I also knew that I needed to start eating better, so I cut out sodas and bread at the beginning, and then some other things as I went along."
