    @McKlecker - 3 weeks!!  Not long at all!!  I've done that rose cleanse before, I should try it again!  Sooo, unfortunately not very good results from the military diet - I stayed the exact same weight - Even though I was exercising and followed the diet perfectly - My FI on the other hand dropped 1.5 Kg... GRRRRRRRrrrr  He's been losing weight all over the place!!  Soooo Frustrating!!  I want to still lose at least 10 lbs in the next 3 months - which is totally possible, I need to control my diet and portion sizes... Not easy!

        I highly recommend Pilates! It will tone you and sculpt you beautifully! I have been doing pilates off and on for years, but upped the intensity the last couple of months. I am not officially doing any diet, but I have stopped eating bread and rice. In August I ordered my dress from Macy's in 2 sizes, a 6 and an 8. I almost returned the 6 because I thought there was no way I would ever get it to zip up over my 34D bust. I am so glad I kept the 6! I went from it not zipping, to trying it with a minimizing strapless bra, to now having enough room to have cups sewn in. The alterations will cost as much as the dress as I need the waist taken in while leaving the bust alone, a much more difficult procedure, but to have my true hourglass back after all these years, I'm ok with the cost. I started Wundabar Pilates 2 weeks ago and it really works on all over toning. My FI also bought me a FitBit, which I love! It makes me want to walk! And we now take walks together. I have lost about 20 pounds since April. I have not been at this weight in 10+ years.

        how are the rest of you girls doing??


        I ended up down 17lbs total for my wedding, and gained about 5 back during my 10-day all inclusive wedding-moon. We were super lazy, and I expected that. I've taken 3 of those back off in the 2 weeks we've been back, and will keep working at it.

          My wedding is in 2 weeks.... I was doing REALLY well - and then the holidays hit - I've been referring to that as my Christmas Kilo - that stubbornly won't leave!  But, back on track now... Anybody have any LAST MINUTE tips for a desperate bride!  I'd like to drop about another 4-5lbs in the next 2 weeks...  I work best under pressure!! haha

              Yeah I was thinking of that too.. since we'll be at the resort for 4 days BEFORE the wedding, I don't want to gain all the weight back and feel bloated on the day, and I also don't want to be bored and pissed of not drinking with my guest :( I was thinking, vodka or white rum with carbonated water. I know clear alcohol is less caloric and has less sugar, and then you definitely don't want to mix with juice or soda... And try to limit my intake to 2-3 drinks a day.. I know people start drinking early in the day, I'll try to stick to water as long as I can, and keep Alcoholic drinks for night time.


              As for the food, try to cut on carbs for sure and limit your fruit & dairy consumption for the next 2 weeks. You will see a difference. 


              Good luck :)
