    Yes it is, if you lose 2 pounds a week -- which is very possible and also very safe.

    Diet is the big part of the equation, and most of it is common sense, but there are things you can do to help weight loss. For example, cutting back on the carbs (but don't cut WAY down) and increasing your protein intake will help. Eating breakfast every day is essential. Many people find that eating smaller meals or snacks every 3 to 3 1/2 hours works better than three square meals a day. Also, many people find that cutting off all food and drink except water 2-3 hours before bedtime helps. The most important thing is to make sure you're not eating more than your body needs. Google "Daily Caloric Intake Calculator" to find out how many calories you should be eating per day based on your age, height, weight, and activity level. That number is how many calories you need to maintain your current body weight, so cutting 300-500 calories a day will help you lose weight.

    You should also add exercise if you're not already doing so. One of the best fat-burning and lower-body toning exercises is brisk walking. It doesn't pound your joints like jogging, and all you need is comfortable clothes and a comfortable pair of shoes. Sneak in brisk walks whenever you can (even 10 minutes can be beneficial) and try to devote at least 45 minutes a day to brisk walking. If you can do an hour a day, great!

    Average weight loss is only 9-15lbs a year, so this is a long term lifestyle issue not a quick fix. You require both an appropriate diet and very regular vigorous exercise.
