Got to lose 5 lb by friday!!!!

Well I've caused myself a big problem today. It's my birthday next weekend and I've just seen the most beautiful dress in monsoon. I've recently lost all of my baby weight to become a (nearly) happy 10 stone.

I tried on the size 14 which was far too big and not fitted at all. The size 12 looked absolutely amazing except for just being slightly too tight, you know where you can see the shape of your bra straps at the back and there was a slight crease at the back where my waist is. I tried on another 12 to see if there was slightly more room in that but unfortunately not.

I reckon that if I lose 5 lb it should give me the little bit of room needed.

Any suggestions, advice, moral support greatly appreciated !

Don't eat anything and run at least 10miles a day wink

I have just started WW and have about 10lbs to lose. I am losing a pound a week, even though I am sticking to it closely and exercising loads sad

cabbage soup diet would work

or atkins

short term gain though, but that might not matter for this occasion

How about one of those body wrap type things? The ones that make you lose inches? They are short term so you'd probably need to do it on the day itself.
Not had one done myself (they remind me of that bit in the Full Monty film where the big guy is sat in his shed with his stomach wrapped in clingfilm whilst he is eating a mars bar!!).
Could be a good option for you?

the wraps certainly work if you have them done on the day of the event and drink nothing in between!!! i had one done a few yrs back for our engagment party and it worked wonders!
