Hi bees!!! So I am 12 days away from the wedding and I need 2 more lbs to go!!! I am (almost) 5’1 and started at 122 lbs in April. I am down to 110lbs which is awesome…but I really want to be at 108…I have 12 days left. I have been working out hard for 5-6 times a week and am on a 1,200 cal diet. I am doing everything the healthy way…but it took SO long to get from 112 to 110. I don’t know if I can do the 108. Any tactics other than taking diuretics? 🙂 THANKS LADIES!!!

I *promise* you that no one is going to notice a difference in two pounds.
Just relax and don’t stress.

For my dress 🙁 It’s tight in the waist a little..I want to be able to enjoy the yummy rehearsal dinner and dinners leading up to wedding…it’s just extra comfort room…the 110 is my final happy weight 🙂

Drink water like it’s your job! A lot of people think that they’ll bloat if they drink too much water, but the it’s just the opposite. Drinking plenty of water will flush out any extra sodium that may cause you to bloat and keep things moving along in your digestion so that those 1200 calories get metabolized and not stored. There’s no need to dehydrate yourself with the diuretics… dehydrated bride = no good.

Water.. it will make you feel fuller and help you eat less! Avoid too much salt and carbs. Eat 4 small meals throughout the day. And don’t stress. Keep busy moving around -taking stairs and don’t stress.
2lbs isn’t enough to make a fuss over!!

I second the don’t worry or stress about the two pounds as it will make no noticable difference.
Also, you say your dress is a little bit tight in the waist but even if you DO lose the 2 pounds there is no way to make the pounds go away from the exact spot the dress is tight.
You have so many other things you should be thinking about 12 days out from your wedding and your weight isn’t one of them.

@Mrs.KMM: @SanDiegoAli: Exactly what these two said. There are so many other things to be looking forward to and sorting out in those last couple weeks. You’ll be fine. You’ll eat and you won’t notice the tightness. You’re going to be so drunk on love it’s untrue.

If you don’t mind sharing, how’d you lose the first 12 pounds? I’m at the same weight where you started and would like to be down to 110. How’d you get there since April?

Put lemon juice in your water and drink tons of it! The lemon juice makes you retain almost none of it….be prepared to use the restroom a lot!

I second what some of the other posters are saying that no one will notice the 2lbs, but I know how it is to want to get rid of the last 2. What I would do it have a healthy breakfast and lunch, pack vegies for snacks and eat a small dinner before 7pm. Running is also good and drink lots of water! good luck!

cardio cardio cardio and cut calories down a bit for the last few days. You can also sit in a sauna w sweats on. This will cut any water weight but you will gain it back as soon you put that piece of chocolate cake in your mouth! hehe
