Seriously track your calories and measure and weigh everything. Also weigh yourself every day and you will see how "just on piece of cake" can effect your weight. Also get a pedometer and set it for steps (not miles) and try to get 10,000 steps a day. Roughly 5 miles. I have one called "walking style" by omron. It measures your steps but not if you just accidentally jiggle. If you want to lose there is no magical system. It really is just fewer calories in and more calories out. I finally got it. After all these years of gaining and trying different diets and plans. You can get more info at the american diabetes association web site. Take their advice on food choices and serving sizes. Cut out the sodas and junk food and your half way there. And get out walking. Good Luck!

Do not even TRY to lose 100 pounds by October! Do you know how horribly unhealthy that would be? What do you wanna do---starve yourself to death? It will take you at LEAST a year to lose that much healthily. Cut back on your portions, stop eating WHITE food--no white rice, bread, etc and do not eat processed foods. Eat a lot of veggies and fruit. Try to aim for four 400 calorie meals each day and get in as much activity as you can. But please do it safely and don't try to get it all off 5 months---that is terribly unwise.
