Hey guys, i would like to lose about 18lbs in less than 2 months. I'm about 126lbs and need to lose 18lbs in such a short time !!!

Tried working out and controlling my diet since 1st April but it doesn't seem to work. I need a plan to to keep myself exercising and keep away from "nice" foods. Anyone wanna join me? I'll follow you guys.

How tall are you, and what is your build (slender, athletic, big-boned, etc)?

In that case, I wouldn't recommend your losing weight. You should focus on toning your muscles and losing that extra fat. I am in the same boat; I am 5'5'' and I weight 140 lbs. I have a very voluptuous, athletic build. I wish that I could lose 10 lbs, but, like you, I just need to focus on toning my muscles and being healthy. With all that said, at your height, you probably should not lose any weight. Just focus on being healthy and learning to accept yourself how you are. 

Blessings!

Please not that, when you start toning muscle, you may actually start gaining weight, because muscle weighs more then fat.

I agree with Ariana. I am 5'7" and last time I had a visit with my doctor and nutritionist they both said around 135lbs is the right weight for my height. Being only 5'6" I would estimate you already being there.

But if you do continue wanting to lose weight good luck.
