My dress FINALLY came in last night(ordered in march) and went to try it on tonight and it doesn’t fit!! The 8 was perfec t when I tried on the sample, but it must have been stretched out from getting tried on a lot.
I had brought spanx with me, and actually they made it worse, I was able to zip higher without them.
I need a quick fix to lose 5 lbs. I am 139 lbs, 5′ 3″, I guess I’ve been celebrating my enagement with too much food/drink
Any ideas? One of those spa body wrap thingies???

7 weeks is a good amount of time to lose 5 lbs. I think you can do it! First of all, drink a lot of water. Try to eat healthy foods like salads with just oil and vinegar. Try not to eat too many fatty foods. Exercise daily for at least 30 mins. I would also suggest doing yoga and pilates. I lost 8 lbs just doing yoga and pilates within 2 months. My favorite pilates video is Pick your level weight loss Pilates with Ellen Barrett and my favorite yoga video is Power Yoga Total Body Work Out by Rodney Yee.
Good luck 🙂

Oh no, that’s so disappointing! But you can totally lose 5 pounds by your wedding. Cutting down on cards will help those pounds fly off. Eat loads of green veggies, fruits, and lean meats. Drink a ton of water. And stay active! You can do it!

@LoveByrd: I will always recommend the master cleanse lemonade detox. If you have a motivator such as fitting into your wedding dress, and you are strong willed, you can do it. It actually has great cleasing qualities, and also clears skin and gives you energy. I lost 13 lbs in 10 days on it.
I will absolutely be doing this before my wedding (mind you I am not yet engaged). But I still plan to do this if I need to drop a few lbs before the big day.
Go to themastercleanse.org. Good luck!

you dont need to do anything drastic, like a cleanse to loose 5 lbs. Like other posters have said up your exercise routine and limit your carbs. good luck
