      I agree - it is not unreasonable, but you have to buckle down, and do it the right way.  Make sure you are eating whole foods, low in sugar and fat, and regular small meals 5 -6 times per day.  Exercise helps with toning, calorie burning, and energy, but diet is really 80% of your body.  Give yourself a cheat meal each week, and eat INTUITIVELY.  Don't starve yourself, that just leads to binge eating.  Good luck!!!

          Good luck with your weight loss!  I know you can do it!!!!!

          OMG that is AWESOME! You did it!!!!!! (I don't care about that last 4-5, you're motivation must have been awesome!!!!!)

           

          Congrats and I hope you have a BEAUTIFUL wedding!!!!! :)
          !!

              I am also on Weight Watchers:) These are the tricks that have helped me so far: 

              1 - my weigh in day is Friday (that way I can still eat out with friends on the weekend and have time to get it back off before next weigh in)

              2 - Eat protein:) It keeps you full for much longer. 

              3 - Cardio

              4 - working out to blogilates.com workouts. 

               

              Good luck!

                I have never heard of blogilates -- I will have to check it out!! I have to have my weigh in on Sundays that way when I do go out on the weekends I won't eat terrible (I'm bad enough on Sundays with out going out to eat!!!) I can't trust my self not to order fired or carb-overload type foods!! And I completely agree on the protein! I try to eat meat or at least a spoonful of reduced fat peanut butter each meal to get some protein in so I'm not hungry an hour later!

                  It's just over 2 lbs a week so definitely realistic. It may be difficult bc you generally plateau.
