2. Cut out the booze - I know it is easy to say but hard to do.
3. Cut down on salt intake.
4. Drink lots of water.
5. Cut out fast food and eat clean (salads, grilled chicken/fish).
6. Cut down on carbohydrates intake (bread, pasta).
At this point, do what you can and don't stress out over it. Hope this helps.

No I'm not a saleswoman and like I said, I'm not into gimmicky stuff to lose weight, but if you're really panicking then you could look into it!

Sending positive vibes your way! I have been OVER watching what Im eating and OVER exercising and though it may sound crazy. It makes me feel better. Try not to put yourself in a fast food/bad food situation. And keep drinking tons of water. Stay busy. Chew gum. These are all my little tips I use myself. I want to be comfortable on our big day. SO I keep telling myself that. And I usually want to give up. But I dont let myself. I am doing Jillian Michaels work outs and I love them! I feel great and see results!
Good luck and keep your head up! You will be a beautiful bride!

I know we have this vision on how we want to look, and when we dont meet those standards get really down on ourselves. Remember that your husband to be loves you for you, and you two are getting married! Having a perfect figure on your wedding day is nice, but in the end there is so much more that matters.
Obviously Im not saying throw everything out the window, just dont beat yourself up over it if you dont lose the 10lbs by your wedding day.
Now Im speaking from experience. I have gained a lot of weight in the last year, some of it due to health problems, and some of it due to personal decisions. I obsessed over it. Literally. And still am after the wedding and seeing the pictures. So bad that when our TTD pictures came back, my husband said, please be kind to yourself. You are beautiful no matter how you look.
I have to admit, it sort of has brought a negative cloud bearing over us. I can see the frustration and sadness in my husband eyes when all I can talk about is how much back fat I had, or big my arms looked. In reality only I noticed those things, everyone else just keeps complimented me on how beautiful I look, and how great we looked as a couple. But of course I have blinders on since Im obsessing so much. What I should focus on is how the amazing day was captured (and it surpassed amazing by miles!), and I am now married to my best friend!
Just thought Id put that out there from someone who has had experience in this subject before

2.Limit your hot drinks to 4 no sugar and little milk.
3.No bread pasta potatos
4.Eat only lean meats chicken and fish
5.Always start your meal with two mouthfuls of protein.
Apparantly if you start with anything else the glucosce levels rise and after a while they reach there peek and then stop so you then cant burn it off
Hope you feel inspired to kick arse on your fat back.I should post piccies of me in my wedding basque last night.I have so much poking over it looks like a bum.(my teenage sons words not mine) although i have to agree Back on my plan in the morning xx
