I'm 8 days away from my date, I went to try my dress on & it won't zip up all the way up!! It would be enough that it's noticeable. What do I do? Can I slim down in a week? If so how? I'm freaking out!!!

    Drinks lots of water, cut sugar, carbs, and grains. Don't waste your money on gimmicks!

    Drink lots of water, how bad won't zip up? Can you post a pic? Maybe your seamstress can help!

    Hopefully it's just water weight. Drink water only, cut sugar, and eat healthy.

    It's about 3 inches and it won't budge!!! I am taking it to seamstress tomorrow. Ugh. I knew this would happen. I've gained about 8lbs since I bought the dress.

    Have the seamstress change it out to a corset!

    More Moore, great idea. Thank you. She hates corsets but we have no choice. I'm a home health nurse and eat a lot of fast foods. So I know where the mistake came in. I also need to up my water

    Chinese Slimming Tea (in a red box). You can get it from the Vitamin Shop. It is like a detox and it will make you go to the bathroom.

    Cut the fast food, cut carbs, cut sugar, drink nothing but water. Eat little snacks throughout the day and not big meals. Put some lotion on your stomach and then wrap your stomach in cling wrap, it sounds stupid but it gets rid of excess water weight. I used to do this night before I had dance performances where my costume would show my tummy

    Don't eat any grains.

    You Can't eat any fruit (bc of the sugar) except berries.

    And granny Smith apples.

    Make things with almond flour.

    And coconut oil.

    Any veggies except carrots and potatoes. Just water and infused water. Yogurt no more than 6 grams.

    I know when I stopped eating fast food and drinking soda I dropped like 10 pounds within 2 weeks.

    Going Paleo for the week is an option, only clean eating, with water to drink. Just make sure you eat enough calories.

    Water water water!!!! Don't eat carbs after 5pm. Try the Cabbage soup diet I lost 7 lbs on that. Oh and go to the sauna to sweat even more. You got this girl !

    Are you wearing any other undergarments? I couldn't zip mine up with them on so I just opted for not wearing it at all

    Cut the fast food and processed foods for the next week and eat whole foods or go paleo and drink nothing but water. Just make sure you're eating enough. Also, I wouldn't suggest the cabbage soup diet. Right on their website they say it can make you feel lightheaded and weak, and while you may fit into your dress you don't wanna pass out Smiley smile

    If you don’t get it altered and are not successful dropping that much weight in such a short amount of time you still may not be able to close it. I would have it altered into a corset.
