I am a Senior in high school and my prom is June first. I bought a dress that looks good on me but would look even better if I lose a few pounds. I only ever did one successful diet and that was akins I lost ten pounds but gained it all back because I couldn't afford the stuff anymore and I also had to cancel my gym membership for the same reason.Now I understand if I eat right and workout that is fine but I want tips from people who have lost ten pounds in like a month and a half.
To answer some of your questions I am 5'5" and weight 160(overweight I know )
As of right now the only thing I drink is water and a cup of coffee in the morning
I don't eat breakfast I never have and for lunch I bring a peanut butter sandwich ,special k cereal and a nutragrain bar and water of course and then I just eat dinner I normally don't snack that much
But thanks again !

I'm going to take a slightly different approach to this. I know you want to lose 10 pounds fast, but if you try some kind of a "crash diet," you'll likely gain it all back and then some. The best thing to do is find a way that works for you, so that you can sustain a healthy lifestyle.
Some of the suggestions are really good. Get rid of all the sugary drinks. You don't need them. Drink water and squeeze some lemon into it if you need to add flavor. Try to do some kind of exercise every day, even if it's just 20 to 30 minutes of walking. There are many exercises you can do without going to a gym, such as situps, push ups, etc.
Keep track of what you eat. Lose It is a great app for counting calories. It's free for iPhones and other devices. I'm sure there are other, similar apps too. Try to find a balance where you can still eat the things you want, but without loading up on calories. That's much more sustainable than most diet plans.
Finally, be patient. You sound like someone who is not overweight, but instead just wants to lose a little weight to look better in the dress. Set a goal of losing one or 2 pounds per week. If you hit it, you may find it easier to up the goal to 3 pounds in a week, and you can still shed the 10 pounds by next month.
Finally, good luck and have a great time at the prom!0
