Ooooh, I love mermaid gowns.  Jillian Michael’s 30 day shred outta do it.  Also, if you’re lazy like me, you’d be surprised how easy it is to loose lb’s with weight watchers online.  Good luck!

I skimmed the South Beach Diet book, stopped eating carbs for like a week and a half, and now just try to limit my carbs, and I lost like 5 pounds.  And I’m pretty slim to begin with.  Most of it is belly fat but my butt and hips are smaller too.  Running also always helped my legs get skinnier.

Run run run and run some more.  If you don’t currently run, I suggest looking up a plan like the C25K or something similar.  Take it easy and don’t do too much too fast or you will hurt yourself.  I lost 30 pounds in 5 months training for a 1/2 marathon last year.  Good lucck!

Were wearing Spanx (or something like that) when you tried it on?  Something along that lines will only enhance your fitness results

I’m afraid i’m going to say running too. Sometimes you don’t always want to do it but when your doing it you get motivated by the good it’s doing you and after you feel great!

Indoor cycling is what worked for me in the hip area. Women lose weight like a bathtub loses water; first the face, then the bust, then the waist area, and legs and hips last. Don’t lose faith; get into a good cardio program that burns calories will do the trick. Your goal is to expend more calories than you take in (remember your body burns calories just supporting itself, too). Eat well, limit salt and junk food, do a regular (like 4 times a week) cardo program and you’ll see results! Good luck and you are going to ROCK that gown!

I agree with PPs that running helps a lot.  It was hard getting started, but I quickly got addicted.  It’s free, good for you and will change that area of your body faster than you think!

Weight Watchers OR South Beach with Running OR any Interval training like boxing, Insanity DVDs or P90X. You’ll look fab in a few months time!

I’m starting my routine tomorrow (my Fiance even made me an incentive chart!!! Woohoo! He knows it takes a lot to motivate me! At just two pounds he’s going to get me new bath salts and give me a massage! At 15 he’s taking me shopping at the outlet mall – and being my personal slave for the day!! Ah!! I can’t wait!)

I’m doing WW strictly and doing weights 2xs a week and high intensity cardio 4-6xs a week for at least 30 minutes. I’m hoping to drop 1-2lbs a week consistently. In about 10-15lbs I should drop from a size 10 to an 8. So much work, but so worth the effort!

Good luck!!

@tracieszcz: Hi. I have lost over 15 pounds since getting engaged. All i did was go see a nutritionist and she put me on a plan of 1900 calories per day. My issue was not eating enough during the day and then too much at night. so now i get to eat all day long, i have then have more control at night and i keep losing weight!  So as a reult, i really believe its all in what you eat, not how much you exercise.  obviously my nutritionist gave me healthy foods to eat, but when i have something junky, i just balance the calories by taking away something else.  its amazing!  best of luck fitting into your dress!

last thing – if it really comes down to it, can’t you exchange for the bigger size? you don’t want to suffer everyday until your wedding day!

If running isn’t good for you try rollerbladding (properly). Also hot yoga, spinning, 30 day shred.
