Please help - back "fat"

Hi guys!

When I first found my wedding dress, I had just had the stomach flu for a week and had lost 5-10 pounds. I wanted to wait to look for it, but time was just getting too short. I warned them when I tried it on I had lost weight, but they said it would be fine. They wound up ordering my dress a size smaller than what they had in the store because they said the one I was wearing was too big in the stomach area, and they'd put in an expander in the corset top.

Fast forward to now. At my last fitting, I tried the dress on (back at my normal weight). It was tight, but not too tight. Then, though, the alterations manager (who is a friend of mine) told me how to make back fat go away (pushing the skin forward from the back towards the chest). I was shocked when I saw it appeared I had a muffin top. It wasn't like this when I first got the dress (see the picture), and I've never had this problem before.

My wedding is in 30 days, and I don't have access to a gym. I've been doing some simple cardio and watching what I eat. Do you have any suggestions as to how to take care of this problem? Thanks!

    Hi lauraandjosh040613! You can definitely make a difference in the next 2-3 weeks. Pushups need to become your best friend. Check out our Bridalicious FB page:
    <a href="http://www.facebook.com/BridaliciousBootCamp" rel="nofollow">http://www.facebook.com/BridaliciousBootCamp</a>
    and also my blog: <a href="http://bridalworkoutdvd.com/blog/" rel="nofollow">http://bridalworkoutdvd.com/blog/</a>
    I am constantly posting info and new workouts for you. Here's my favorite way to tighten up the upper body and help you lose the "back fat."

    20-10 turbo pushups. Get a timer like on your smart phone and set it for 20 sec. Hit "Start" and do as many pushups as you can do in 20 sec. Rest for 10 sec and then do it again for
    20 sec. You keep this 20 secs ON and 10 sec OFF for 8 rounds of high-intensity pushups.

    The 20-10 method can also be used while alternating between pushups and dumbbell rows. You would still do this for a total of 8 rounds.

    This is the way to go, trust me on this. Do these sets of 20-10's every <strong>other</strong> day (you need rest and recovery) until your wedding and make sure to watch your diet. No exercise in the world can overcome a poor diet.
