Please check out my 100th post! I didn't want to post so soon after the hundredth, but it seems I have a dilemma.
I can't fit into any of my dresses or skirts! And I can't find an outfit for church on Easter Sunday...I don't know how it is at your church, but at my church everyone dresses pretty casually EXCEPT on Christmas and Easter Sunday. Then people dress to the nines!
I don't want to buy a new dress...I'm sick of looking for one! And chances are I'll only wear it once.
Plus, I found this little number in my closet (it definitely needs washed and aired out...it hasn't been warn in 3 years! But I think it's cute :-))
The whole dress is made of an eyelet fabric, and the skirt is very full. If I wear it, I plan on wearing a green cardigan sweater over it.
That is, IF I wear it. The problem is, I can't exactly zip it up the whole way. And I look either pregnant or weirdly swollen when I wear it. So I have 5 days to make it fit!
Now I'm not going to starve myself for 5 days. I THINK I know how to go about this in a healthy way. I think a lot of my newfound chubbiness is just water weight. My whole body just seems a little bit puffy or swollen (probably because of the prescription I'm on).
I'm going to try to drink nothing but water, and lots of it! Also, I'm going to try to give up all salty foods and lots of carbs for the next 5 days.
Basically, I want to eat mostly fruits and veggies for 5 days. Lots of them...again I'm not starving myself. But I'm thinking that doing this, and working out a little bit will help me get rid of lots of this water weight. And then I will probably be able to zip up the dress :-P
I'm basically posting this for suggestions or advice. Is it healthy to eat only fruits and veggies for the next few days? I mean, vegetarians do it, right? Plus, I plan on eating a little bit of meat, too, for protein. And is it even possible for me to lose enough water weight to be able to fit into my dress? It really is almost zipped up. I have 2 inches or so that I just can't quite zip.
I can always just wear some white capris with a dressy top if worse comes to worst. I at least want to be able to wear my new white shoes!
Please let me know if you have any suggestions or advice! I want to do this the healthy way, but I'm not sure if it's healthy to try to lose weight this fast. Is this wishful thinking?
