Eating less + exercising more is pretty much the healthy formula for weight loss.

1-2 lbs/week is a healthy weight loss amount so ~35 lbs sounds pretty reasonable in 6 months.

I agree with the previous poster. If you think you need help with eating less, I recommend weight watchers. It’s a way of life of healthy eating IMO. A few years ago I lost 50 pounds on it and now that I want to lose a bit more for the wedding I am doing it again with much success. In the end it’s just a way to systematize the eating less.

Just be sure to not go too low on calories. From what I’ve read, most women need at a minimum 1200 calories/day. If you go any lower, it’s just going to decrease your metabolism and make your body cling even more tenaciously to those extra pounds. Another thing to consider is that muscle weighs more than fat, so your overall weight might not change if you’re building muscle. However, it’s still *totally* worth it to lift weights, since that muscle will (1) help raise your metabolism and (2) make you look more toned overall. I started doing the workouts recommended in “Buff Brides” about 5 weeks ago, and I’m already seeing results – my arms look MUCH better and I’ve almost totally lost those horrible tricep wings 🙂

The amount of weight you can lose in 6 months depends on where you’re starting from.  Some people can lose 35 pounds in 6 months and others can’t.  Going from 150 to 115 is very different from 200 to 165.  Also, I really do think it varies from person to person as to what the most effective diet is.  My friend was on Weight Watchers and followed it religiously, but she never lost a lot of weight—she lost maybe 5 pounds and then just stayed there.  She switched to a different diet plan, lost 35 pounds and has kept it off successfully.  You might want to talk to a nutritionist about what kind of diet (eating plan) would work best for you.
