do you think that trying to lose 30 lbs in 2 months is trying to lose too much too fast?

I'm not an expert on the subject, but I've been told that experts generally don't recommend losing more than 8 pounds a month. There are a lot of serious health risks that come with losing too much weight too quickly. I think it would be safer to spread it out over at least three months, but again I am not an expert. If you have any doubts you should probably talk to a doctor or another qualified professional to make sure you are not putting yourself at risk.

As long as you are doing it in a healthy way, then go for it.

Hmmm... I'm definitely more in the exercise and eat right to be healthy camp. I judge my health and well-being by how I feel and where my energy level is at.

Sorry, can't speak to your question.

Goals are good, just don't beat yourself up if you don't quite make it. It's more important to lose weight in a healthy way than to lose it quickly.

I would definitely talk to your doctor about it. There are times where 30 pounds in 2 months isn't a "drastic" weight loss, but this would be in a situation where you're already extremely heavy. In most (definitely not all) situations, 30 pounds of weight loss in 2 months is a lot. So call up your doctor and double check with them

That's a pound every other day. That's a large weight loss so quickly. I would certainly speak to your doctor to make sure your body can handle this weight loss and maybe a nutritionist to make sure you get all you need nutritionally from the extremely small amount of calories you would take in.

How many Cals a day are you planning on eating?

I don't think this is a realistic expectation and could be a potential health hazard. Drastic weight loss plans should be done under the watchful eye of a nutritionist and a general practioner. There are many things that could happen to your body that you may not be aware of and then there is the added effect of what rapid weight loss does to the elasticity of skin. You'll probably end up with results you weren't expecting and sometimes it can only be corrected through surgery.

One of Dr. Oz's patients went through something similar. Started a really nice routine, eating healthy and all of that and he lost so much weight so fast that he had to have the excess skin removed or be forced to wear a girdle for the rest of his life to keep it from showing when he was in public. He felt very uncomfortable with it all and expressed that he wished he had done it more slowly with toning exercises instead of just aerobic exercise.
