Five Pound Goal In 18 days?

Since my childhood best friends wedding is just a short 18 days away I have decided I need to rev-up my workouts to look great on her wedding day.  Mel and I have been each others biggest support team since we both decided to loose weight.  Neither one of us is over weight, but I know I feel like I could look better.  Since Christmas I have lost 8 pounds.  This number could have been hire but I am not the healthiest eater around.  I am not knocking my accomplishment at all.  I am actually really proud of it.  I just have about 10 pounds left before I reach my goal weight of 135.
Silk taffeta Selma dress
My dress is similar to this one from the crew.

Yesterday, I tried on my BM dress and it was a little big.  When I first bought it almost a year ago it was tight and not flattering at all.  I had the fold over armpit fat {eww!}-y'all know what I am talking about and I am sure you feel the same way.  As I was looking at myself in the dress I thought I wonder what I would look like with another 5 pounds gone.  So I decided that I am going to strive to lose 5 lbs by April 30th.  I know that is a lofty goal since it has taken me 4 months to loose 8 lbs, but I think I can do it.

Here is my plan: 
4 to 5 days a week alternating between cardio and C0re Fusion DVD's for toning
Glutes and thighs that look like this, yes please!

Track my calories using the L0se It! app for iph0ne
Use my food scale for accurate portion control
Drink 96 oz of water a day
Drink only one weekend night for the next two weeks
Eat out once or twice per week

I am open to any suggestions or ideas so please pass them on :)

I am obsessing (re: can't stop making) this smoothie! It's delicious and totally filling -- actually, it's a lot to drink, but I manage to get in two servings of vegetables and one and a half of fruit right away in the morning. I love it!
