    You could try Atkins for two weeks (my mates have got results, one's lost nearly a stone in that time!), or get it adjusted.

    The only thing I can suggest is cutting your calorie intake by 500 a day, doing 40-60 minutes of cardio exercise...make sure its 6 small meals a day, I dunno if youll see results in 2 weeks though, and it sounds as if genetics have made the fat on your thighs stubborn as can be, so its abit hit and miss really..

    How could you make your dress fatter? That could be easier than making your thighs thinner by the sounds of it....Ok i read that at it sounded really harsh, i didn't mean it that way!

    Try developing your dress into a larger size with some clever sewing.

    I had the same problem in my last prom. I had a really clingy dress and so decided not to each much the week leading up to it. But then I went shopping the day before and got a new dress (which was much nicer and not clingy) and so I treated myself to a nice burger king!

    Anyway, that story was completely pointless. Just wear the dress and try not to worry, I'm sure you'll look great!

    hmm dunno if it can be adjusted it has reeeally narrow side seams, like 1.5 cm ones....at the most they could add another cm t each side which would help, but itd be reeallly tricky.

    You could cut slits in the side for more "breathing space", could prove stylish too if not seductive...

    hmm, how does this sound for meals then:

    breakfast- glass of semi skimmed, piece of wholemeal bread with low fat spread
    OR
    double scrambled egg plus OJ

    11am- some kind of low cal bar- kellogs special k? and diet coke

    1pm-ish- small quantity of rice and mixed veg, or maybe a bit of curry to go with it


    4pm/5pm- bit of low fat cottage cheese? (i can eat random foods in a strange way) or grapes?


    8/9pm- cod steak in parsely sauce with boiled veg/low fat cottage cheese


    any other suggestions? i don't eat beef and i'm allergic to nuts...thats about it really...

    Breakfast go for the eggs option, at 11am eat something else other than just a keloggs bar 1pm make sure its brown rice 4pm cottage cheese is fine, 8/9pm is fine, try and get it abit earlier though...maybe 7-8?
