    If you are looking to loose weight quickly and keep it stable, you have to balance exercise with a healthy diet. In the long run, developing anorexic habits and then resuming your old diet afterwards, will ony cause you to gian more weight than you already have! This means that on the day of marriage people may like your figure, but a month later you may swell up like a balloon.

    Also, you want to avoid depression on your day of marriage, so becareful about your eating habits. A diet consisting of a mixture of fruits and vegetables, will lower your craving for sweets and increase the nutritious value of your meals. Your face will be glowing and your cheeks will be that right shade of red, due to the fact that your skin will be nourished properly.

    Make sure that you drink at least one glass of orange juice each morning; this would ensure that you are taking your daily recommended intake of Vitamin C.

    You can reduce the amount of calories you intake, and still maintain a healthy lifestyle by eating at least 3 full meals a day. This includes: breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

    For ex.

    For Breakfast-A bowl of wheat cerial and milk.

    For Lunch-Rice marinated with different vegetables.

    For Dinner-A bowl of vegetable meat soup.

    If you really feel that you must eat something in between, do not turn to snacks such as chocolate and chips. Eat apples, bannanas, or any other type of fruit. They increase your energy supply without causing you to insistently need more to keep your energy level stable.

    Don't forget that chocolate and sweets give you a boost of energy which does not last, diminishing your energy level after minutes. This is why you always need more of them eventhough you are stuffed! I hope this helps.

    Also, avoid takeout food which is really greasy. It contains a high calorie intake eventhough it does not satisfy hunger.

    During the winter, it's difficult to excercise outdoors. Try joining a local fitness gym, where you can use tread machines and weights. Who knows, taken yoga classes may help reduce your stress! =)I hope this helps.

    pick up a 5 or 10 pound weight at the gym and visualize that weight coming off holding the weight in your hands helps bring home just how heavy even 5 pounds of extra fat can be

    Basically, you have to go on somewhat of a fasting.

    STRICT fasting.

    eat only fruits and vegetables and some carbs like a sandwich with lettuce and balonee and cheese. lots of water. water fills you up a little so you wont get a high appetite. its all in your mind really. you're not starving yourself. your just eating less. walk a lot. run if you can. just ignore the junk. ABSOLUTELY no candies and chips and sodas.

    Whatever you do, STAY active.

    I did this

    I lost 10 pounds in 1 and half weeks.

    my face even looked smaller. (In a good way cuz i got a round face)
