    Ok. I'm not sure how much weight you'll need to lose, but I have a diet that I use when I need to lose weight quickly and it really works. You can lose up to 10 pounds in 3 days. Using it, I've lost 5 to 8 lbs whenever I've done it. You have to follow it completely and can't subsitute.

    This may not be the healthiest option, but it is a diet created by doctors for cardiac patients who need to lose weight quickly before surgery. It is not something I would recommend for long term use for weight loss, but is perfect for the situation you're in.

    It's called the "3 Day Diet". Here is the link. The meal plan is listed at the bottom of the web page. Good luck!

      I had a too tight BM dress once. My mom used a little sewing tool & let out the seams. I think it was pretty simple. She tested a seam behind several layers of gathered fabric first. It was still a little tight. I took a coat thinking that if I couldn't handle it I'd unzip the back & put on a coat. After a while of wearing it I got used to it & didn't notice how tight it was. I was even able to dance a lot in it. I think I'm just so used to really comfortable clothes that anything restrictive bothers me when I first put it on.

      I'm not sure why it was so tight. I tried it on before I ordered it. I don't know if the dress that I ended up with ran small or if I gained weight without realizing it. It also had this built in bra like thing that I left unsnapped for more breathing room. I'm thinking about cutting that thing out to make more room for when I need to wear the dress again next month.

      I had another BM dilema. I was in a wedding in a different state & didn't get to try the dress on first. I sent in my measurements. When I got off the plane & headed right to the store I learned the dress was obscenely tight. Luckily the store had one other dress, but it was way too big for me. It fit like a bag. But, still it was better than everything squished in.

      In the end both my BM dilemas worked out. Don't do anything unhealthy. Just try some Spanx or letting out the seams. Good luck!

      OK, off to try that dress on & make sure I'll be fine!

        I say Spanx, no soda, and no added salt. And drink lots of water.

          Thanks girls! No salt and cutting back on carbs! I don't really drink soda so that's not a problem.

          It's not like I painted the thing on, it's just tight in my ribcage area. Oh and then too big in the boobage area! Funny how that works

            I was actually surprised I was the only one that mentioned the the alterations option! That was the first, and only thing, that popped into my head! No way would I do some drastic weight loss thing ... but hell, it's good to know these options exist! lol
