6 lbs in a month can be completely healthy.  You should check out sparkpeople.  They help you keep track of your diet so you can count calories.

I had an 18 month engagement and have lost about 29 pounds so far. I’d like to lose 6 more, but it doesn’t matter to me if I do that before the wedding or not. My goal is to make this weightloss permanent, so I’m not willing to go to any extremes and risk yo yo-ing.

I used Weight Watchers to do it and overall have averaged about 1/2 pound a week. That includes weeks where I lost like 2 pounds, and about 5 months where I just plateaued and didn’t really push it.

To lose 6 pounds a month (3500 cal * 6 lb divided by 30 days) you’d need to burn 700 calories more than you intake on average per day.

I think you can totally do this! And as I learned along the way, even being 5 pounds away by the date is not a big deal because so much other progress has been made. Get as far as you can and be pleased with that! Good luck, corleycolorado!! Smile

It took me 8 months to lose 20 pounds, and that was a lot for me. I tracked all my calories on http://www.dailyburn.com and worked out. As pp’s have said, I think your goal is very doable and sustainable, as long as it’s done the right way! Good luck, corley! You’ll do great!
