Be Positive

Being uncommitted is not as horrible as it seems. Sure you may miss holding his hands, but on the bright side, you have all the freedom in the world to do what you have always wanted. Instead of feeling depressed about the whole scenario, look at the positive side and enjoy it while it lasts. At least you managed to get out of an unhealthy relationship early on.

Use The Time To Know Yourself

Having a partner means that you have to devote yourself to the other person majority of the time because that is how relationships work. Now that you are single, take the opportunity to please and understand yourself better. This stage is all about you and no one else.

Meeting new people does not mean that you have to get hitched the moment you spot a hunky guy. Instead, you are using this time to broaden your circle of friends. Remember that you are not in a hurry to get attached again; you are just opening your eyes to new prospects in the future.

Singledom is not scary at all. Once you get the hang of it, you may even learn to enjoy it. Positive attracts positive, so if you are happy, maybe you will finally meet the right person for you. This time, there is no turning back.

You can ask friends and family members to support you by walking or participating in exercise with you. You could also look to see which companies, such as Healthy Trim, offer health coaching. This way you can work out on your own but have the support of a health coach on your side. Sometimes all you need is a little bit of encouragement to get the rest of the weight off.

Last minute fittings while stressful, is your last time to make changes to the dress so that it fits you well. So if you haven’t lost all the weight, don’t be ashamed to get alterations so that you look good on your big day.
