I need to lose about 10 lbs. Maybe 15 at the most. I'm going to the beach in 5 weeks and if I can do it by then it would be awesome. For the last two weeks I've been eating much smaller portions, cut out all sweets and junk food, drinking green tea (maybe 3 cups a day) and a lot of water. I don't even drink any juice anymore. I don't have time to workout really, but I do try and get some exercise in when I can. I would say 2 to 3 times a week if I can. I also eat some fruit during the day although it has a lot of sugar. I guess my question is, do you think I will be successful in losing some weight? What can I do to step it up? I know I need to work out more and I'm trying, but its so hard with working and the kids. I am also considering cutting out all or most starches.
