Definitely don’t over-exert yourself.  It also depends on what your ultimate goal weight is.  If you are close to it and don’t have much to lose, you probably won’t (healthily) lose more than a pound a week.  I’ve lost 51 pounds (from 181 to 130) and it definitely slows down at the end.  I have 10 more pounds to go and I know it will take a little while. 6-12 pounds is doable if you still have more to go, but if you don’t have much left I would say 3-6 is more reasonable. It also depends on how acurate you are with your logging.

Depends a lot on how overweight you are…. If you’re 100 lbs overweight then 2 pounds/week is a reasonable goal. If this is just vanity weight to slim down for the wedding then I’d say max 1 lb/week.

I have my 6th weigh in on Saturday but right now I’m at 7.2 pounds lost.

I lost 25 pounds once in six weeks, but it was HARD!

based on your weight goal versus your height, i think your weight loss will likely slow down. although, i lost 5 lbs the week of the wedding, but it’s not like my dress actually fit that much different because i was just stressed and dehydrated.

I lost the most weight a week before my wedding, about 5 pounds!! I had taken the week off work to finish any last minute items, but also ate super healthy (cut of carbs, salt, junk food, etc..) and did weights and cardio for 40 minutes for 5 days!

I lost 21 lbs in 6 weeks. It was very difficult but worth it.

The closer you get to your goal the harder it is. I’m not trying to discourage but realistic expectations will serve you better. If you only have 6 weeks left, I’d not expect to lose more than 5, anything after that is gravy. This is coming from who has been working on “the last 5 pounds” for….. months now! I finally got a -2 last week, but I’m expecting very little to come off next week.. It’s just how it is at the end. 🙁
