Our expert says:
Congratulations on your wedding. I am sure that the other Readers are flooding you with diets and suggestions about diet pills. I can unfortunately not recommend any of these unbalanced diets because they may well result in dramatic weightloss in time for your wedding, but the chances are good that you will then pick up all the weight you have lost and more the moment you stop using a starvation or an Atkins-type diet. I trust that your dr who diagnosed your underactive thyroid has prescribed thyroid hormone treatment such as Eltroxin? If not, discuss this with the dr and take your hormone replacements as prescribed. I would recommend that you use an energy-reduced, low-fat, high-fibre diet (click on 'DietnFood' at the top of this page, then on 'Healthy Diets' and then on 'Slimming Diet' for a copy of such a diet), and increase your energy output by doing regular exercise (running, jogging, skipping, cycling, swimming, join a gym or Walk for Life) every day for at least 30 minutes or more for the next month. Even if you don't lose a total of 10 kg, you will lose about 5 kg and firm and tone up wonderfully so that you are a glowing, healthy bride.
Wishing you all the very best for your wedding day.
