how close is it to fitting? I know the last month can be really stressful, but you have just over 7 weeks. If you are really diligent, it's possible to lose 7-10 lbs in that timeframe. The really hard thing now is all the celebrating with showers, and parties, and such. Going overboard on exercise is probably not the answer at this point (plus you probably don't have time for it) so really watch what you eat and try to stay within your calorie range. If you're really panicking and don't think you can lose the amount of weight you need to in 7 weeks, go back to the dress shop or to a seamstress and see what they recommend. It may be possible that a few simple (ie cheap) alterations are all that's needed.
