At least you have a good amount of time! 2.5 months! Are you going to have it altered?

Try the 30 Day Shred by Jillian Michaels.  It works for so many people, I myself did it in June, and I lost about 10lb in 30 days, and inches too.  Best of all, it’s only 25 minutes a day and very easy to do.

I’m sure it’ll fit though! You have 2.5 months, PLENTY of time!

I am trying to lose weight to fit into a dress.  It’s my mom’s dress.  I have a few more weeks to go before I finally get to try it on (it’s with mom across the country).  I think I’ve lost 8 pounds since June so not nearly as much as you!!  But I’m doing it slowly and methodically so it will stay off.

I recently got a disease that won’t let me work out intensly anymore but before I did I was doing Barre and the couch to 5k program and it was really paying off.  Now I walk and swim when I can.

Cardio, cardio, cardio!!! Get that heartrate up as often as you can for as long as you can! Also, cutting out some carbs might help, but I wouldn’t try to cut them all out completely or it will be all you crave! Good luck!

Your nutrition is paramount to your success. That’s one of the most important things my clients learn when theybegin working out with me. Nix sugar, and keep your total carbohydrate intake to less than 100 grams per day (watch out foryogurt; it is deceptively high in carbs, even the plain kind). 

And while making sure you are getting enough physical activity is important, don’t become a slave to traditional cardio. The idea is to get the best possible results in the least amount of time possible with the least amount of effort required. Try intervals paired with an intelligent weight lifting program (don’t worry, you will not get bulky). You’ll feel invigorated, not doomed to fail like you would if you promised yourself that you’d spend an hour a day on the treadmill. Besides, you’ll be much more likely to stick with it after your wedding. 

Good luck, and please feel free to reach out with any other health/fitness questions!
