HELP!!!

Ok... I bought my wedding dress 2 months ago. When I went dress shopping, I tried on my dream dress. But it was a size that I didn't want to wear on my wedding day. So, I had them order it in a smaller size. BUT!! I came down with mono a week later and my doctor restricted any and all excercize until recently. I haven't lost any weight and my dress comes in any day now!! The wedding is in 35 days. WHAT CAN I DO??? I'm willing to do anything to get into that dress!!

    Maybe you can start by talking to the bridal store?

    How far are you from the size that you ordered?  Is it tight just in the bodice of the dress?  If so, you might be able to have a seamstress change the back into a corset back where it will lace up.  That tends to give a little more room.  Other than that, you can start to eat very strictly.  Make sure you are eating the recommended calories for your size (www.thedailyplate.com can make a recommendation) and focus on eating veggies, whole grains, lean meats and lowfat dairy.  That may allow you to lose 5-10 pounds if you are very strict.  Please do not starve yourself.

    Thank you SO much! I am starting the South Beach diet today. I lost a lot of weight on it before. So hopefully I can do it again. Cross your fingers. Plus, I just got a jogging stroller for mother's day!! Time to go running! I'm still nervous about getting the job done though! I need to drop 10 pounds min. Yes, it is just tight in the mid section. But it has a button detail all the way to the bottom so I'm not sure if they can change it to a corset.

    DON'T do the South Beach Diet.  It's a fad diet that is not healthy for you, and not a sustainable long term solution.  I would track your calories using a free website like Spark People.
