    So my wedding is in 2 months, 2 weeks and 2 days...And, let's just say that I've been a little lax on the diet and exercise plan that I had originally put into place in order to lose weight before the wedding. By a little lax, I mean that I haven't done much of anything - and that's a huge problem.

    Are there any brides out there who waited until the last minute to start preparing themselves for their weddings using diet and exercise? What did you do and how successful were you? Does anyone have any advice?

    I know, I know...I should've started sooner. =)

      i am not big for crash diets but a few of my friends have done "The Fat Flush" by Ann Louise Gittleman (sp?) - just google "Fat Flush".

      i watched the lbs melt off of them - it is REALLY restrictive and only good for short term stuff!

      Good Luck!

          I recommend some serious cardio or pilates and then accompany that with the weight watchers point system. make sure to drink all the required water... that should work.

              Susan is our personal trainer and may be able to tell you something safe to do with fast results.

              I did cardio and strength training like 5-6 days a week, for like 2 months leading up to the wedding. You still have some time - - don't freak yet, just get to work sista!!

                I agree. Join weight watchers or find someone that has the books/point counter that you can use. It works like a charm!
                Combine that with exercise. You don't need to kill yourself over it. Just walk a few miles a day, then move it up to a jog/run. Do lots of crunches, leg lifts, squats...all of which can be done in front of the tv if necessary.
                My favorite is the leg throw...lay on your back and have your FH stand with his feet on both sides of your head. Hold the backs of his calves and lift your legs up towards him. Have him push your feet down towards the floor but don't let them touch! Bring them back up and repeat. He can even push them towards the sides to get your obliques. This works awesome on your abs, thighs, and lower back. Then switch and have him do it so you can get an arm workout

                  Everyone has such good advice! Now my motivation should just be the fact that my wedding is so soon....Of course, I'm sitting here eating a huge plate of brownies, which isn't helping!

                  We really need to start going to the gym. REALLY need to start. =)

                    I've been trying to motivate myself since January and I'm now about 2 months away and have just decided that I have to be good from now until I get to mexico, It really sucks, I'm so hungry right now, I could go for some of those brownies you're eating!
