My weight goes up and down at the drop of a hat.  I went up 6lbs for no reason and then got super stressed due to work and my taste for food goes straight out the window and I dropped 10lbs.  The odd thing was that I was stable at my weight for about 2 years and then these last few months have been a rollercoaster.

@bmo88:  I gained 20 pounds before my wedding and have never ever felt heavier.

If you cant work out…. i suggest the old fashion eating less. Cut all sweets snacks and complex carbs. 

I have a wedding in 2 months and my husbands ex will be there so I have to look amazing.

breakfast

1 half banana

3 strawberries

1 fist of blueberries…..

Blend with skim milk and ice or freeze the fruit.

Lunch: light chicken or meat with salad 

Dinner : pineapple grilled or fresh…

Snacks: cucumber with lime and olive oil… and salt… Or red and yellow peppers or diet jello.

No juice no soda…. Water and tea!!!

In 1 week you will be a lot thinner….. Trust me

I’d recommend keeping track of what you eat on something like myfitnesspal.com – it’s startlingly easy to eat more than you technically should to maintain weight loss.

 

Also, failing that, drink a CRAPTON of water. Like you should be peeing every hour. It helps, promise.

@bbfyso:  

I thought the “rule” was don’t eat after six ? Or does it depend what time one goes to sleep?

@bbfyso:  you only eat pineapple for dinner?! No nutritionist would recommend this meal plan, I doubt you would even be getting 1000 calories a day. OP, don’t go below 1200 a day. include good carbs like rolled oats, wholemeal stuff etc in your diet (small amounts) and lean protein, raw nuts etc. limit your salt intake as well and drink plenty of water.

@Lollybags:  it was actually given by a great nutricionist And are you serious about carbs!!!!!

If she had 6 months it would be fine. He dress doesnt fit and she has 45days……if she goes 1200 she will lose a pound a week if she is lucky. The plan is nutricious and filling  she wont pass out or get headackes it has protein and veggies and fruit… It is not a long term diet but it is a great one … Because of the rush… And it is 100 tomes better to do my program than to feeling starved all day. Carbs only work to ” fill your stomach” they have no other use

OP Listen to @Lollybags she seems to know what she is talking about. I don’t care how much you are trying to lose, don’t eat less than 1,200 a day. Period. If you eat to little you will actually send your body into metabolic shock and your body will start to store what little food you give it to survive.

Try to eat 6 times a day, and make sure 1/2 of your meal is veggies. Like @Lollybags said, eat good carbs! We need carbs to function. Look into joining a plan like Weight Watchers, that will help you lose the weight and keep it off through your wedding. 

Drink water water water and green tea.

@NEbride2Be:  If you eat to little you will actually send your body into metabolic shock and your body will start to store what little food you give it to survive.

This is so true. My FI is a nutritionist and what he recommends to people to help lose weight is drink a lot of water and cut out wheat, dairy and any processed foods (soda, junk food, packaged meals, etc). For almost everybody that will help you out so much in combination with working out. So you’re eating lean, healthy protein (eggs, fish, chicken, lean cuts of beef) and lots of veggies (aim for all the colours you can for a meal, red, green and yellow, especially leafy greens like kale and swiss chard), as well as low glycemic index foods and grains (ie: quinoa, sweet potatoes, steel cut oats, brown and wild rice, beans, nuts like walnuts and almonds). 

@bmo88:  Hopefully they can alter it to where you feel comfortable and then just work towards feeling amazing in it on the day of.
