    I am sorry to hear this but dont panic it happens often. I heard south beach works really good a number of people told me they have lost 5 to 10 pounds in the first week. You should get the book. I broke my foot so no gym for me so that is what I am going to start. I will do it with you if you would like.

        Good luck Erin and Glenda. Thank GOD my dress had a corset back or I probably would have been in deep doo doo. My poor mom had troubles zipping up her dress wedding day.

        You have all the advice I could give already from the ladies, so I'll be a cheerleader for you girls!

          I swear by the South Beach diet! And like jkcz0702 said, you can lose quite a bit in the first week. It's safe, it's healthy... and best of all, super easy to follow! (so long as you eat eggs & salad)

          oh no erin! yikes!

          when i bought my dress i had not been working out and was 7 lbs heavier than now. i did not have any alterations done in the top of my dress, just length. over the next month i was working out 3 times a week, trying to tone my mid/upper back (the part that will show.) when i went back in for the fitting, my underskirt would barely zip and the dress corset had to be laced looser! i had gained thick muscle definition in my back, and it was thicker than the 7 lbs of fat had been! ahhhhh! so, i actually STOPPED working out, well, my back anyways. keep up the cardio! and water water water till thats all you can think and breathe! for a quick few lbs, (not totally healthy) try diurex, makes you pee green, but whateva

                Holy cow! That sacred heart diet sounds fairly painful, but at least you get baked potato (sometimes) and lots of BEEF!!!

                Not much to add, but don't eat PICKLES. They apparently make you retain water. Sucks, because they are virtually calorie-less. OH well.

                Good luck! You can both do it!

                  Back in the early 80's the Sacred Heart diet was called the Dolly Parton diet. HB and I would go on it and lose 10 pounds pretty quickly. Having a partner doing the diet with you helped, but we got sick of eating the soup by the end of it.

                    I know you CAN both do it! Best of luck to you both! You have lots of choices, pick one that works the best for your body and stick with it! GOOD LUCK!
