So I bought my wedding dress back in September, we’re only getting married in October. Well I went to try it on tonight and its a little snug, any one else have this issue? What did you do to lose those extra 5-10 pounds before the wedding? Any help is appreciated as we only have 4 months until the wedding.
I already have been doing the insanity workout for the past 4 weeks but have not lost any weight.

From what I’ve heard from friends, insanity can take several weeks to kick in so to speak, and then you see the weight loss happen fairly quickly. Have you had the dress altered yet? You should still have plenty of time to do so with it being an October wedding. I would take the dress to a seamstress and make sure they can alter it to fit if they have to, and then keep working out until closer to the wedding. That way you can take the time to lose the weight but you have the peace of mind knowing if it still doesn’t fit quite right you can fix it.

@brush1027: I highly recommed the Paleo diet! Very easy to follow – just cut any fats, fried, dairy, whole grains, and sweets from your diet. You can eat as much protein, veggies, and fruit as you want. I did it for 2 weeks and I noticed a difference but I also worked out. I got off of it but now since I am trying on my dress for the first time since I purchased it….I need to get back on it. I will be doing the diet until November…!!!

5-10 pounds can also be an alterations/shapewear fix! I would definitely try to monitor your diet – lots of fruits and veggies and water! 😀

dont stress out. you still have some time to go, follow a diet plan or increase your exercise regime. believe that you can fit into the dress on your wediding day!

@msfuturea: Is the Paleo diet the one where you eat raw meat??

It’s all about the diet! You will lose faster if you eat well. It’s important to exercise of course, but if you need to drop weight by a set date eating super healthy and wathing your calories will be more effective than working out. Though, doing them both together would of course work wonders:)

It just seems like no matter how hard I work out and watch my diet I can’t lose those stupid 5 pounds. We still have four months so I’m hoping if I cut back a lot of my food intake in general I’ll lose the weight.

@peachacid: No, not at all! The Paleo diet is also known as “the caveman’s diet”. All you eat is what the cavemen use to eat, protein, veggies, fruits, and nuts. All the protein should be cooked 🙂

@brush1027: My dress did not fit on my wedding day. I was trveling (DW, Hawaii) and swelled up like a balloon. I had to pay biiiiig bucks to have it altered on the day of the wedding. She let it out to be about a size 10 and added a corset back… It was a nightmare

I got a prescription for Phentermine from a weight loss clinic. It’s a diet pill that supresses your appetite. It WORKS. It gives you energy to excersise, and makes you want to drink lots of water. I started taking it mid February and I’ve lost 20+ pounds. You can visit your doctor or nurse practitioner. 1 month’s supply is about $30 in Texas, plus the doctor’s visit.
P.S. I’m getting married on the 26th!! October brides rule!

I did Phendametrazine in the past, it really does work… I did not tolerate it well though, it made me feel yucky
