  • cut out soft drinks, refined sugar, eat lots of fresh fruit and steamed veggies, eat baked fish or chicken, drink lots of water and green tea. Make sure you do eat breakfast. That jump starts your metabolism to burn up calories.

  • Cut out breads, potatoes, rice, and pasta completely! Same with sodas and juices. Eat only super high fiber cereals and eat them RARELY. Stick with lean meats like chicken breast, lean cuts of beef and fish, eggs, plenty of fresh or steamed veggies, salads, lowfat cheese, sugar free jello. Have 3 meals a day plus 3 snacks. Drink water or decaf tea only and plenty of it! At LEAST 64 oz. a day! If you don't cheat, you should be able to lose the weight you want. This is NOT a NO CARB diet, it is a healthy low carb eating plan. It's not boring, either! I love my homemade spaghetti sauce (no sugar) over baked chicken breast and everyone loves the Chicken Broccoli Dijon that I make! Add 2 to 3 cups steamed veggies (beans, broccoli, cauliflower or carrots) and a tossed salad and you have a filling meal.

    The first couple of days can be difficult but once you get through those you'll begin to feel great.

  • Cardio cardio cardio! Run, jog, use the elliptical machine at the gym, or bike. This in addition to eating lean meats, fruits, veggies, and whole grains should do it. Don't starve yourself or your body will go into starvation mode (and you'll probably faint at the wedding).

  • Basically cut out all liquids besides water. Cut back a little at each meal, skip snacking. Trust me you can do it. Weigh yourself every day, so you know where you are at, that will give you motivation, try and walk for 30 min a day or whatever kind of exercise you like. Cut back on sweets, stick to wheat bread, can't believe it's not butter the spray kind (o cal) lite sr cream, lite ranch ect. if you need any other pointers msg me, i joined weight watchers and lost almost 20 pounds doing it. good luck
