    Hi,
    I set myself a goal of getting into the lower stone for my birthday in 2 weeks - after a slow start of half on, 1 off I've left myself with 5 to try and lose in 2 wi's. Can it be done or am I setting myself up for failure?

    If you follow 100% I believe that it can be done.

    I have done it several times so it is possible, but I would say that it does depend on how much youve got to lose still. Someone close to target may struggle with such a goal. Stick 100% though and you shouldnt be far off that if not the whole 5lbs :)

    I've lost 5lb in the last 2 weeks and its weeks 4 & 5 for me. Last week I lost 4lb and this week 1lb. What I would say is try to eat a variety of speed and superspeed foods to try and get the weight shifted. (thats what I did).

    If you up your superspeed foods intake, there shouldnt be a real reason why you couldnt do it. However, I would personally expect a 4lb loss.
    Good luck!
