Lindsay's Secrets to Getting in Wedding Shape:

1. Set Goals for Yourself

"I established a realistic weight-loss goal, and through consistency and guidance, I was able to meet my goal!"

2. Commit!

"I began boot camp eight months prior to my wedding. After the first month, there was no quitting!"

3. Consistency is Key

"I tried to work out on the same day from week to week for consistency. I would plan my week ahead, to ensure that if I had to miss one of my regular workout days, I could make up for it on a different one."

4. Find Small Ways to Add Exercise Into Your Routine

"On my 'off' days, I would still try to incorporate some sort of exercise into my day -- even if that meant standing in front of the TV during my favorite morning show doing biceps curls with a resistance band."
