Default New here...8 weeks to fit my grad dress!

Hello everyone!
This site is so inspirational and I am ecstatic to finally be committing to being a part of it.

ok so here's the truth. I weigh 175 right now (April 30th)
I want to weigh 135-140 by June 29 for graduation.

Right now I am a size 14-16 and I have purchased my dream grad dress in a size 10. Most people would call this insanity and i don't really know what it is but it's hope.

I NEED TO LOSE 40 POUNDS IN 2 MONTHS. the most i've lost in a month before is 25 pounds so i think i can do it. but i can definitely use some support so if anyone's looking for a buddy.
I've so far lost 13 pounds.

I wish the best for you, going out and buying a dress 4-6 sizes smaller should really be motivational for you. I know I could never do that! I just hope you go about this in the healthiest way imaginable. I've hear that 2 lbs a week is the healthiest but I know people can lose more than that.

thanks so much for your encouragement.
i know it is a very big goal... as far as what ive been doing

i work out every morning before school (ha) Pilates and abs
Then in the afternoon I do weight training/aerobics for an hour
And then half hour on an eliptical trainer

And as far as eating i'm on Herbal Life which is drink mix for breakfast&lunch + vitamins and lots of vegetables.

It sounds strict but so far it's working. i'll keep posted i guess.

let's hear what the rest of you are up to!
