I'm currently in the process of shedding pounds. Here's what I'm doing. Of course there are lots of options.
I own an elliptical machine. I'm on it 30 minutes every day. Elliptical machines give you one hell of a workout if you use the right resistance. I recommend joining a health club or find a place where you can use one, or a treadmill, 4-5 days a week. Or, do a lot of walking, say, 45 minutes a day.
I'm also eating mostly soups and salads, making sure my toppings are not too many calories. I supplement the soups and salads with low fat meats for protein.
I drink lots and lots of Diet Lipton green tea.
I'm averaging 2 lbs of weight loss a week.
40 lbs by Jan. 31 will be challenge. You have about 16 weeks, so I think 30 is a more viable goal by the end of Jan.

You won't last 5minutes eating nothing but yoghurt!
design a diet you can stick too!
Crash dieting never works, because it makes you obsess about food and then when you eventually 'give in' you eat more to compensate and you put all the weight back on
Forget rubbish, ie: fizzy drinks, sweets, chocolate, cakes, biscuits, fast food and take-aways
Eat meat, fish and dairy products every day
Drink plenty of water, at least 8 pints a day
Eat smaller portions of bread, potatoes and pasta - and try not to have them more than once a day
Eat as much fruit, veg and salad as you like
and snack on them in between meals if you feel the need
Other healthy snacks, nuts (not too many- quiet high in fat) berries and seeds
Get plenty of exercise - when your bored, put some music on +exercise! Even if you are only running up and down your own stairs to begin with - start with a half hour everyday and increase by 10minutes a day after 3 days
You need to change your whole way of thinking about food, new patterns and attitudes to food are possible but difficult - you just have to make NEW habits
finally, you are you, irregardless of your weight, and you shouldn't be judged on your size, but if it's getting you down, and making you feel this miserable, take action while you are still young and healthy enough to enjoy the rest of your life
First off, you need to watch your diet. This is the most important thing in weight loss. You can exercise your butt off but if you don't watch what you eat it will all be for nothing. Try to eat 5 to 6 meals a day. Keep a food log as you can see what you are eating. Eating small portions throughout the day will keep you feeling full. Make sure you eat breakfast. Egg whites and a cup of oatmeal is a good start. Your next meal can be a whey protein shake. It is really important to take in protein as it helps your muscles repair and also leaves you feeling full. Next you should have a chicken/turkey breast or fish with some veggies and some brown rice. Your next meal can be some cottage cheese or yogurt with some fruit or granola. Your next meal can be another protein shake or some meat and veggies. A mulitvitamin and plenty of water are musts. (Give yourself a cheat meal once a week. Whatever you want. Just limit it to 1 meal.)
Try to do cardio every day for at least 45 minutes to an hour. Everyday does not have to be an extremely intense cardio session. Try doing interval training where the intensity levels shift through the workout. An example using the treadmill would be walking a few minutes then jogging a few minutes, walking again then running. You can do the same thing with an elliptical by changing the levels throughout the workout. Don't do the same cardio machine each time. Maybe running today, walking on an incline the next, an aerobics class or tape the next, etc. If you like sports try and include that in your weekly routine. ( I play lots of racquetball and its a great workout and its fun.)
In addition to cardio, weight training is very important. You can choose to do a lighter weight with lots of reps. (aim for about 3 sets of 25 reps per exercise)But it should be enough of a challenge that the last few reps are difficult. You can choose to lift more moderate weight with 12 - 15 reps.(aim for 3 sets of 12-15 reps) I would recommend doing 6 weeks lighter weight with more reps and 6 weeks moderate weights with less reps. You can train you legs and abs one day; chest, shoulders, triceps the next; back and biceps the next; and core training on the last. Try to do 3 different exercise per body part with the exception of legs. Since you are working legs alone, try doing 6 different exercises. It really doesn't matter which body parts you train together as long as you do them.
(Don't give up. Even if you mess up one day its not the end of the world. Try again the next day. It takes a while to wean your body off of unhealthy food but you can do it. You can always join a support group if you need help. Thats why weightwatchers is so successful.)
I hope this helps. Good luck!

First focus on loosing 10lbs at a time.
I lost 50 lbs by taking it 10lbs at a time. But that wasn't all i did.
I worked out for 1.5 hours/ 5-6 days a week at the gym and ate smaller portions of a "balanced" meal 3 times a day with 2 snacks in between. (fruits, veggies, low carb-not as much rice, bread or pasta, and protein-especially if your lifting weights).
I don't count calories, drink shakes or do any kind of diet program.
After years of trying all sorts of diets to drop the weight NOTHING worked because within a short period if i did lose weight it all came back.
WHen i embarked on fitness as a means to improve my health i never dreamed all the positives that would come from it. At first i HATED it because it was a lot of work and now after working out for 2 years i love it. The feeling it gives me afterward and the 50lbs I lost in those initial 9 months was all worth it.
I stopped working out 3 months ago due to an injury and have only gained 2 lbs in those three months.
NOT 50 but only gained 2!
IF my weight loss was a result of just dieting i would have gained all 50 lbs back.
I will be returning to the gym in about a week. Working out is now a way of life for me and i dont ever plan to stop.
Personally, i think the diet industry should be sued and made bankrupt.
All those Jennie Craig, Nutrasystem, etc commercials with their brilliant marketing plans only serves their pocket book and does nothing long term for your waistline.

I lost a 30 lbs several years ago in about 5 months. I really didn't have a weight goal at the time, but more like a size goal which I reached & surpassed. I went from a size 18 to a size 4 in the 5 months. I guess that 40lbs in that same time frame is doable.
You have to be committed to working out 6 times a week & eat a strict diet. I did cardio every other day & weight training every other day alternating my upper body workout days with my lower body workout days. I think you will have great success if you follow Kathy Smith's workout & eating plan. Buy the book "Lift Weights to Lose Weights". She shows you a eating plan that can easily be followed & her illustrations on the weight training is great. Don't worry if you don't have weight equip or don't belong to a gym. She shows you how to use hand weights to achieve your results.
Best of luck to you. It is going to be a lot of work, but not impossible. YOU CAN DO IT!!!

Your ideal weight is around 95 lb so I wouldn't worry. Stop thinking about diet diet diet. That is why you are not losing those extra pounds. Even if you eat 1500 calories, it won't make a difference. The MAIN thing is not to put food in your mouth after 7pm at night. Take a 30 minute walk after your last meal. If you are hungry, have an apple or even popcorn. Popcorn is air and you won't gain an ounce with that. Exercise 20 minutes in the morning before eating breakfast. It will activate the body to burn calories faster after your breakfast. Do this and I am sure you will drop at least 1 pound this week. Stay away from sweets, white bread and replace with whole wheat. Eating 800 calorie will put the body in hunger fat and it will store the fat rather than burn it. You didn't mention anything about water. Two bottles a day will improve your diet.
Work out 4 times a week. Good enough if you are consistent.
