My dress won't zip!...And I leave in 12 days!

Recommended Posts

Well ladies, I'm down 1.5 pounds since Wednesday and that's not even with working out. At this rate I will be fine before the wedding. I honestly am not to worried about Jamaica, even with all of the yummy food and drinks. I tend to be super active on vacation and they have a great gym!

 

I'll be working out as much as possible this weekend and am thinking of doing a few hot yoga sessions for the extra sweat.

 

I've cut out carbs and have primarily been eating raw foods and the occasional cheese cube during the day, oatmeal for breakfast and chicken breast for dinner. I haven't been eating anything after 8pm.

 

I've had so much water, I think I need to invest in diapers. There have been a few near accidents! LOL! I have a tiny bladder as it is, so this is interesting. Not drinking has been a little challenging. Sitting at the ballfield while FI plays in 95 degree weather and having to turn down a frosty cold bottle o'brew takes will power, but I did it!

 

Thanks so much for all of the support! BDW is the absolute best!

The gym also has a sauna so that might be an option, sweat some of it off!

I'm also enforcing a strict no eating after 7pm rule and a you must eat breakfast rule.

Thanks Glenda! I know it can be done, it just sucks that we have to do it! I'll be good tonight and let you know what happens in the morning! I need some sit down exercises I can do while at my computer! I still have to do programs and iteneraries for all of the guests.
I had the same problem! I stopped eating at 5:00pm for a whole week before the wedding. And it worked wonders. I should probably enlist that rule now. Don't stress about it - that will compound the problem. Just be very conscious about what you eat...I agree with everyone - No alcohol, and no salt. I teach aerobics, and those two things will move mountains, and pounds...

Hey, this crash diet always works for me. faddiets.com has one called the 3 day diet. I have no idea how it works but I'm telling you I honestly drop 10 pounds everytime.

So true! I love Alli. Just don't eat it with fattening food - you'll pay - LOL!

Try taking water pills or laxatives- they will get rid of any extra fluid and anything else inside you! LOL I wouldn't recomend this for an extended period. And it all comes back after you stop. Just a quick fix.

Great job Erin! You can do it! I lost 4 lbs right before we left and I had NO idea how that happened. I didn't exercise and I certainly didn't eat healthy. It must be all the nervous energy.

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
