Default Not sure how to feel about my goals

So I realized today that most of my goals probably aren't going to happen on time. I've lost a little, but not what I thought I would. I've lost 27 pounds in 17 weeks, which means I'm losing an average of 1.6/week (which obviously isn't great for someone my size). I do acknowledge that I could be doing better—I don't stay on plan as often as I could, and I don't exercise. I think

No longer morbidly obese by October 31, 2010 (235 pounds), which would require me to lose 2.7 pounds per week until then, meaning 1110 calories per day until then.

No longer obese by April 29, 2011 (179 pounds) which would require me to lose 2.3 pounds per week until then, averaging 1310 calories per day.

These three are possible if I faithfully stick to my current plan:

Cousin's wedding, May 27 2011 (size 16 dress, about 190 pounds?) which would require me to lose 1.9 pounds per week] until then.

Normal weight by November 23, 2011 (149 pounds) which would require me to lose 1.8 pounds per week until then.

Size 10 by Christmas 2011 (about 145 pounds) which would require me to lose 1.7 pounds per week until then.

So basically I'm trying to decide if I should stay on my current plan (with a little extra effort) and just let those first two go OR if I should redesign my plan to try to speed it up a little.
