I have been "dieting" for the past 6 weeks with a tottal loss of 6lbs. I have lost 1lb a week steadily.

It wouldso help me psycologically if I could loose 5.5lbs before the 25th of June so I have 16 days to be really focused, I can exercise on all but 1 of them and will either run or swim on all the other 15.
I want to maintain eating healthily, no faddy diets
SO OH WISE ONES, is this possible, and has anyone any tips for me???

It is possible but it will be hard!!!

You'll have to be extra specially good on your diet. Plus I wouldn't recommend any excercise that builds muscle because muscle is heavier than fat. You need to do cardiovascular excercise to burn the fat, running sounds ideal. Swimming will probably build up muscle.

Also you could drink a pint of water before each meal. This will fill you up so you don't eat as much.

If you skip 1000 a day and keep doing what you have been doing, that is if you cannot go to the gym.
