Kim's Secrets to Getting in Wedding Shape:

1. Drink Water
"I bought an awesome water bottle and increased my water intake. I still take my water bottle everywhere I go! It's healthy in general and helps with weight loss."

2. Find a Friend
"My roommate and I did Bridalicious Boot Camp together. It was so helpful for us to be able to support each other."

3. Be Consistent
"Prior to starting Bridalicious Boot Camp, my fitness routine was very inconsistent. Sometimes, I would run, go to the gym or take a class, but I never really enjoyed anything enough to stick with it for very long. That was the recipe for a lifestyle where I wasn't getting the exercise I needed to feel fit and healthy."
