Dear Desperate Loser
To lose weight you need to basically change your lifestyle. Reduce your energy intake by eating an energy-reduced, low-fat, high-fibre diet (click on 'Diet' at the top of this page, 'Weight loss', ‘Balanced diet’ and then on 'Slimming Diet' for a copy of such a diet), and increasing your energy output by doing regular exercise (running, jogging, skipping, cycling, swimming, join a gym or Walk for Life) for 30 or more minutes a day. On this regimen you should lose 1 kg per week, so your desire to lose 10 kg in 5 weeks, may not be fully realised, but if you do lose 5 kg and firm up nicely with the exercise, you will look dramatically different for your sister's wedding.
Good luck
