Well good luck on the weight loss! It was difficult for me to lose 15 lbs in 7 months but I did it! I would say if you’re trying not to look “puffy,” drink a ton of water, NO NO NO salt, lots of fruits and veggies, try to stay away from red meat, and walk/jog 3x/week just to get the endorphins going as you get closer to the big day. Exercise is a great stress reliever, even if it’s just walking around the block a couple times. Good luck!!

Cardio is really your best bet, especially interval training. I’m also with lsaunde, Salt is your enemy.

I HIGHLY recommend Weight Watchers. Online OR meetings, whichever you like. I like online.

Cut out the sodas if you drink them :(. And don’t just switch to diet, because that will only make you want sweets more. Good luck!

Try not to eat any pasta, white bread or potatoes, nothing fried and stay off the booze.

And if you don’t get the weight off, don’t worry. You will be a knock-out on your wedding day anyway.

My advice would be just try to eat whole foods (not processed foods). If you do this you will notice that you feel a lot better that will give the energy to exercise. Also, just doing some cardio every day is good. If you can only walk around the block, get on the phone and go for a walk. You can do this!

Honestly if you have a short time frame and don’t want to leave anything to chance, do Jenny Craig. It’s just like Weight Watchers except all the guess work is taken out of it. On the surface it appears really expensive but it’s not because you would have to buy all that food on weight watchers anyway and you aren’t charged for ‘meetings’ since consultations are free. You get individual attentionand the food is really good. I did it 3 years ago and I’ve lost 30 pounds total, (I’m only 5 1 so you can imagine what a difference it’s made!) and I am considering going back on it just to eat the food! It’s so yummy..

If you want to cut the processed foods a good plan to follow is the Eat Clean Diet.  It will help you lose weight and the bloating.  I find having a plan is easier then just cutting random thing.

Eat less, move more.  That’s all you have to do.  Calories in need to be less than calories out.  Wink  Figure out your BMI and your daily caloric needs and then figure out how much less you need to eat to lose what you want to lose.  try webmd.com, they have a good calculator.

I’m going to ditto the eating clean idea.  The less processed, the better. 

 

Sparkpeople.com is also a great source for counting calories and starting an exercise routine.  And it’s free!

I cut out processesed/fast foods, and pretty much immediately lost 5 pounds.  I’m still eating the same foods, I just make them at home out of natural products instead of picking them up at the drive-thru!

If you consume 500 calories less a day, you will lose about 1 lb per week, or about 8 lbs by your e-shoot. So start figuring out where you can cut calories and how to incorporate a more exercise into your routing. Invest in a heart-reate monitor too, it can give you a good idea of how many calories you are buring per workout. Good luck!
