Help! Need to lose 30 lbs in 3 months, suggestionss?

I'm avg weight- not fat, but not thin, but need to lose 30 lbs in 3 months for my upcoming wedding. I exercise and have eaten pretty good and healthy but this weekend i binge ate a lot and gained back my weight that i lost-5 lbs in two weeks. I don't lose weight as easy as i did when i was earlier twenties. I'm desperate. I'd even try crash diets just so that i can fit into my dress. Help?

  • Don't binge. This calculator will help you count how many calories you should eat per day to loose weight.
    Write down what you eat in a virtual food diary.
    You definitely shouldn't eat less than 1200 calories per day. Don't do a crash diet, it will make it even more difficult to loose weight in the future. Eat when you're hungry, 4 small meals during the day.
    In your portions, follow this rule:

    stay away from processed, fried food and beverages

    • you can also start doing kick boxing. I heard that you can loose up to 1000 calories in an hour

    • I heard that about kickboxing too. Thanks for your help! I have been losing about 2 lbs a week, by going to the gym like a madwoman and eating healthy. Just the binge eating this weekend set me back

    • When I didn't write down what I ate, I thought ' There's no harm in eating some more, after all I'm hungry'. Now that I write everything down, I'm more weary of what I eat. The most important thing is to be healthy, to try to loose some weight, since you want it so much, but don'tt put yourself under too much stress.

  • easy... runnin/walkin is good

    i've lost 50 pounds in 3 months yet i was starvin myself... so id not suggest it :D

  • I think you should just find a wedding dress that you can actually wear. No fun in a marriage if you kill yourself before you actually get there.

    • Yeah but you have to take into account, the pictures that will be taken, etc. I don't want that day be a day where i feel insecure about myself.

    • Show All
    • in which case I *seriously* wouldn't want to be stressing over CLOTHES

    • Yeah but it's a wedding. Clothes are important. Especially a wedding dress. Its a special occasion.

  • plenty of rigorous sex coupled with regular exercise and proper diet

  • Jog with a garbage bag or a sauna suit. I helps you loose water wight. Look it up this is not a joke

  • Why did you order a dress that small?

    • Nah, i just had them order a few sizes smaller. It's not drastically small

    • Still not very smart, because if you can't lose the weight you're screwed.

    • Yeah but I don't know, i guess it's more motivation to lose if it's a smaller size

  • You should make the dress fit your body, not the other way round

    • It's not drastically small, plus if i did end up losing weight I'd have to shell out a couple more hundred to alter it again. Might as well alter it to a certain size once

    • Needing to lose 30 pounds to fit into it sounds like its quite different from your actual size

    • It is different, but i don't think it's a drastic, impossible thing to take on.

  • eat healthy and work out! drink lots of water too.
