    I am going to Cancun on May 10th. I would like to lose 34 lbs by then doing CD s/s. I have been doing it for 2 weeks where I have lost 12 lbs.

    Is my goal a real possibility or am I shooting for something unachievable?

    Do you mean 34lbs from now or 34lbs less the 12lbs you've already lost (22lbs)?

    It sounds achieveable but I dont know what your start weight is, my losses arent exactly rapid and couple of STS despite sticking to the programme.... If nothing else you'll get seriously close and feel much better anyway - so keep up your hard work xxxxx

    Reach for the stars but settle for the moon I would say.....
    (ok ok all you astrologers - its probably wrong!)
    What i mean is aim for your 34lbs but dont be disappointed if you dont make it. Its a hell of a lot to lose in 8 weeks. My CDC reckons on 14lbs a month.... so about 28lbs - I know its only another half stone....and you probably could make it... good luck but don't be disappointed if you have over estimated.
    sorry don't mean to be a killjoy.... just dont want you to feel a 'failure' because you didn't do exactly what you set to achieve.

    Thats my two-penn'orth anyway!

    I'm at 164 now - and I started off at 200, so roundabout the same! Be careful with the exercise - when I did LL and exercised I lost a lot slower, walking and swimming yoga and pilates are ideal but nothing mad like marathom running while you are SS'ing :D:D:D

    I'm in the same boat as you. We're going to Florida on 7th May and I'm hoping to lose 2 stone at least by then.

    Well said!! It's a great incentive to stick to plan, no straying and wherever you are by holiday is a million miles closer than you would have been if you had chosen to do nothing (iykwim)!!

    I'm off to Florida on 17th April for 2 weeks, that's my motivation for losing. Hoping to be another stone down by then ;) from now.

    We'll do this peeps - just keep chipping away at it bit by bit

    Hey Dobbie I'm off to Florida probably just after you get back. You'll have to drop me a line and let me know your recommendations. I went 4 years ago but I know they've had tonnes of new stuff since then.
    Hope you hit your target by then and I hope you have fun. I'm like a big kid at the moment and checking the calender every day to see how many days it is until we leave! :D
