Each Posh Bridal Show grants future brides and grooms ample opportunities to meet with wedding experts and plan every part of their big day. Rather than overwhelming couples with an intimidating number of wedding professionals, planners select a limited number of bona-fide experts in each facet of a wedding?from the ceremony to the honeymoon?and cordon them off by theme. When not hobnobbing with planning professionals, attendees can check out wedding-dress showcases and demonstrations of bridal hair and makeup, nibble on tasty morsels from caterers and bakeries, and enter to win giveaways and door prizes.
After shedding the extra pounds that came along with hypothyroidism and three pregnancies, Melody Chandler founded Texas Fit Chicks Boot Camp to share her weight-loss strategies and support with other women. Her all-female staff of certified personal trainers helps exercisers of all fitness levels shape their bodies during group fitness classes. In an effort to challenge muscle memory, the team shakes up workout regimens by using different techniques and equipment?including kettlebells, resistance bands, and lead sweatpants?each day. Melody?s team also helps exercisers retain their results by supplying nutrition support with meal plans and recipes that use healthy ingredients.
The Jenny Craig Program provides people with nutritious, heart-healthy foods, a personal consultant, and a plan specially tailored to helping them attain their desired weight. Clients meet with a Jenny Craig consultant to assess their current eating habits and to create a scheme for shedding superfluous pounds. Then, the week-one planned menu unfolds like a paper airplane made of phyllo dough (items in blue are included in the plan, and orange items are recommended additions). A sample day starts with the Breakfast Scramble, a mound of scrambled egg whites and turkey ham topped with melty low-fat mozzarella and served over diced red potatoes. Lunch is beef chow mein, which is packed with vegetables (broccoli, carrots, bell peppers, and rooglebetas) and remains unpacked with calories (it has only 220). Dinner brings the comfort of macaroni and cheese and tops it off with a cookie for dessert.
