I lost four inches in one week...BUT the reason was because I had ab separation from recently giving birth. I wore the bellefit, and I lost a total of five inches with it. I would try your best, and about a week before the event see how you did. If you are not at your goal then I would just get a different dress for the time being and make it a goal to eventually fit into the dress you ordered.

I doubt even spanx will give you 4-6 inches... Buy clothes that fit... easy game.

You can take 4 inches off with a good corset, but they are uncomfortable to wear if you're not used to them (and it might not be the look that you want).

And a good one is expensive!

Wouldn't it be easier to order an outfit that fits? There's no guarantee you'll lose 4-6 inches off your waist, even with exercise and Spanx. It all depends on how you carry your weight.

It would be easier and less stressful to order an outfit that fits now rather than try to lose the weight, fail, and then be rushed trying to find an outfit that does fit.


Agreed. Why do we do this to ourselves - buy outfits and then torture ourselves about getting into them, which just leads to guilt and feeling really bad about ourselves?

Put the outfit away, get something that fits now and focus on losing weight in a healthy and achievable way. You will get into the dress eventually if you commit to this, but in a month is just not going to happen.

I'm doing 30DS and 6 weeks to a 6 pack. The 6 pack one is definately tough and if you do both everyday I'm sure you'll see results. Not sure how many inches you'll lose though as I'm on day 12 and I've lost 4 1/2 lbs but no inches as yet.

Even 4-6 inches in a month is going to be hard. I've lost 5 inches off my waist in 5 months since I started. But I've lost 54 lbs. Your body loses where it wants to lose. LOL
If you do it, though, I wanna know how! :D

try sit ups every morning, as much as you can..do it gradually, this will help tighten your abdomen.

3. Set time machine to go back 6 months
4. Start dieting THEN

Sure, but it won't always take inches off. It depends on how your fat is distributed. You can't spot-reduce.

I'm sorry, you aren't going to lose 7-9 inches off of anything in 30 days. I don't care what you do, there's no magic exercise to shrink in a month what it took years to put on.

My recommendation - go buy another outfit for your event...

Primal Blueprint and Mark's Daily Apple.

I had lost 10lb in 6 months following the healthiest version of the standard american diet - and following the Dietary Guidelines to a "T" (those guidelines were also making me diabetic while I was losing weight - go figure). I hit 120lbs which was my goal - but you wouldn't know looking at my belly. I decided to try PB and within the first 6 weeks I had lost 4-5" off my waist.

Who knows, the outfit just might end up too big. :)

Who would have thought that I would drop 12lbs below my lowest adult weight (actually I was 136lbs when I hit puberty and hit the low 120s in my early 20s) by going HIGH-FAT! And it was't muscle mass. That I kept while my energy levels went through the roof. My sleep got better. Every digestive issue I've had disappeared. My eczema disappeared. My receding hairline disappeared (yes, high blood sugars can cause hair loss). My belly disappeared. I dropped body fat and some water retention along with it. I now maintain between 110-113 easily.

Yeah I've lost 20+lbs but have only lost 1 inch of my tummy... tummy is the renown for being the hardest place to lose weight from.

Try to lower your carbs a bit in the coming weeks, this will avoid any bloat, may actually help with an inch or two... other than that I would suggest some extra sit ups, as well as cardio workouts, and wear VERY good control underwear, AND suck-you-in-tights AND a corset under your outfit... I did this for my wedding day, but wouldn't do it again.... Wedding dress is too big for me now :P

Good luck hun.

Any occasion that's worth a special outfit is worth enjoying. Cramming yourself into a corset or other compression wear is going to ensure nothing but pure discomfort if you do manage to fit into the dress. You probably won't be able to eat, drink, sit comfortably. Not to mention the risk of... "Remember the time when [your name]'s side seams split while she was dancing with that hot guy?"

Go shopping! Get a great outfit that fits.

uhh... no

buy a new outfit, wear an old outfit, buy a metal boned corset, or super spanx.

either way, you'll have to spend or recycle.

Even with a corset or spandex the fat has to go somewhere so most likely no matter what the outfit isn't going to fit. Best bet, go to a store, find something that fits you NOW and wear that. Don't torture yourself buying things sizes too small when an event is so close. It isn't fair to your body!

I've lost 16" off my waist, but that took 15 months and losing 105lbs. Unfortunately it has a lot to do with genetics. Some lose quicker from one area (I've only lost 7" from the bust and 12" from the hips). I lose from my waist the fastest but still only managed a little over an inch a month. Do you normally lose in your waist first? Maybe you can manage a couple of inches through weight loss and a couple more with a corset to get you to your goal? Good luck! flowerforyou

I would try a juice cleanse for one month!! I did it for 27 days and lost about 5 inches off my waist. I'm not gonna lie though, I felt like absolute crap for the first week on the cleanse, however after the first week I felt perfectly fine, my energy levels were fantastic and my skin looked amazing!! I know some people that have dropped more than 5 inches in one month on a juice cleanse it just depends on how much existing fat you have to drop.... the more fat you have on your body generally speaking the faster you'll drop it.
