    May I ask why you have this deadline?

    3 to 4 pounds per week is not realistic. Why the time constraint?

    If you lose 2 pounds per week, you can lose 22 pounds by then. You'd have to be very dedicated and work hard. But you could get very close to your goal!! And who knows, you could lose more than 2 per week depending on your start weight. Just make sure you don't try to do a diet that is unhealthy/unsustainable.

    No it's not. Not without making yourself ill. Set yourself a more realistic goal

    So I started at your weight and I've lost almost 20lbs in almost 50 days. You are talking another 15 in 10 days at least?

    I don't think that is going to happen. My weight is dropping fast but not that fast.

    You could just stop eating until you drop the 35 lbs. Don't forget to drink water, though, because you could die without it. Be aware that when you start eating again you'll gain it all back.

    The hell?

    No, OP, please don't do this - it's extremely dangerous. I'm sincerely hoping this was sarcasm from the previous poster.

    in two months you can probably lose 10-15 pounds, just in time for the wedding/graduation/reunion/vacation

    *shrug* I guess I'm tired of all the people who are in a huge rush to lose weight. It takes time, hard work, dedication, etc....and most of all time.

    That's not a healthy or realistic rate of weight loss.

    Even if you could lose that much in that time period, it likely wouldn't be sustainable. You probably wouldn't look very good afterwards either.
