    You can do anything if you really want to - and it sounds to me like you REALLY want to! Good luck, keep tracking and sharing your experiences on here and you will get there - it's just a matter of time. Good luck!!!!

    It's 9 weeks til May now, 3 stone = 42lbs / 9 = 4.6lbs per week.

    As harsh as this will sound, thats unrealistic and quite frankly even on a VLCD would be almost unachievable.

    It's fine to have a target and to be excited about what's going to happen at a certain time point but you also have to be realistic, otherwise as you get closer to your time limit without achieving your goal you'll just get down hearted and be more likely to give up.

    If you're talikng about the end of May, I'd aim for 2 stone maximum. Any more ans, as Stackhead said, you'll only set yourself up for failure. Look at losing 1-2lbs a week. Good luck! :) xx
