I have learned that the more water you drink the more water you lose and you can have a lot of water weight you just don't know about.. also it curbs your hunger! good luck and you'll fit into it perfectly! no worries!

If you want to lose some weight quickly and make sure that it stays off long enough for the wedding, I wouldn't do the wraps or the plastic bag sweating thing. These work only because they dehydrate you. As soon as you become hydrated again, you are back to where you started. It would be best to drink your water and eat smaller portions, and cut out salts and sugars while getting some good workouts in.

Okay I am sooooooo doing this. My discipline is kicking in now. I had a grilled chicken salad today (with no dressing) but now I'm going to go home and have some of this Lipton soup.

My only advice is to try to squeeze in some Cardio if not every day every other for at least 45 min. Watch what you eat, try to lower your calorie in take to only 1600 cals a day if possible. Just remember that its important to not cut out meals though, this will only break your system down and if it was me that means getting sick. Snack in between meals on fresh fruit such as apple slices or veggies like carrots or celery. And drink plenty of water...

CARDIO, CARDIO, CARDIO!!!!!!!!!!!! And I would bust out the crunches/ ab machines at the gym. That's great that you aren't freakin' out (you sound pretty mellow like me) I actually work better under pressure, and I know you won't have any trouble shedding a few lbs, just get your heart rate up so you burn fat! Also, great that you are drinking water, that helps flush the system (as you know obviously) Good luck girl, you will look great, AND if you're lucky, still be able to breath....j/k hehe :)

Erin & Glenda - try some water pills and maybe a fat blocker? Maybe some OTC weight loss pills and whatever you do - nothing white and especially NO Salt!!

ahh, I've so been there! I had a BM dress that came in late - a week before the wedding - and it wasn't even close to zipping. I cut out sugar, soda, and liquor, and ate sensible small meals and lost 6lbs in 1 week. I also walked every single night for 45-60minutes at a decent pace.

 

Also, while those heart diets can work, I tried one a while back and I was so light headed and sick feeling the entire time. And that is not what I'd want to be on my wedding day! IMO I'd stick with eating sensible and getting some workouts in.

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
