I am also trying to lose weight. I’ve lost about 14lbs so far but I haven’t lost a damn thing over the past couple of months.

I put off dress shopping until the last minute but finally got my dress this weekend…I purposely picked a dress that I thought I looked good in at this weight rather than picking a dress that I would look good in if I lost a few pounds.

I would just eat really healthy and exercise every day and drink lots of water to lose any bloat…you can make a big dent in about 7 weeks…probably 12-20lbs!

If you’ve got an okay base level of fitness (i.e. you’re not huffing/puffing just going up a flight of stairs), I’d highly recommend the 30 day programs from Jillian Michaels.  I did the Ripped in 30.  They are tough, but you will lose pounds and most of all, you will lose inches!  If you can suck it up and stick with it for the 30 days, you’ll look and feel fantastic.  FYI, you don’t want to be trying to lose weight in the last 2 wks because you will likely have all the alterations done on your dress by that point.

@Merelton:  you can do it. I went on a serious diet before shopping for a wedding dress and lost 12 pounds (2 full sizes on my frame) in about 6 weeks. Once you get started and lose even a little, you will feel encouraged to finish.

I just started the 30 day shred today and have also heard great things about it.  I highly recommend Weight Watchers as well.  Good luck!

@Merelton:  Also, not sure what style gown you have, but it is possible that you can get away with just toning your arms and shoulders. These tone a lot faster than legs or stomach. You can significantly tone your arms and shoulders in 6 weeks.
