Obviously I am absolutely hopelessly over the moon to be recently engaged, we're thinking of getting married in July 2017. However, I would love to lose 4 stone before the wedding and would need to stop losing weight at least 2 months before the wedding to allow for final dress fittings. That gives me 11 months to lose 4 stone. Do you think this is feasible or am I expecting too much of myself? I'm 17 stone at the moment (placing me at the top of the obese category) just for the record, so losing 4 stone would not make me underweight, just out of the obese category and into "overweight" which I would feel much more comfortable with.

If I were to reduce my calorie intake to 1400 - 1800 calories and increase to 150 mins moderate exercise per week do you think it would be realistic for me to lose 4 stone in 11 months? Have any of you lost weight that fast? What sort of exercise / calorie range did you stick to? Any tips?
