I'm on the weight loss boat as well! Unfortunately I weigh in at 188 lbs and I'm only an inch taller than you. But I don't LOOK big. I think a lot of it is muscle in my case (thanks testosterone---read my other posts if you're confused! LOL!).

Anyway, losing weight in your breasts can be very difficult. Push ups are probably the BEST thing to help you lose weight there because it works your pectorals.

Getting rid of the pop/soda is AMAZING. Stop drinking that and walk/jog for at least 30 minutes a day and the lbs should come right off. Even better weight loss:

don't snack at night (no food after 8 pm),
increase amount of water and don't drink soda/sugary drinks
at least 30 minutes of cardiovascular exercise
NO junk food (chips and candy/chocolate)
increase fresh fruits and veggies

That alone should REALLY help you out!!! If you read on one can of pop, you'll see how many calories and sugar each can contains. If you drop that, that's that many calories LESS you have to try to burn off.

After I had my baby I went to the gym 3 times a week where I would run (or jog/walk) one mile. Then I would do 1000 strides on that stair master thing and lastly I would go into the sauna for 15 minutes at the very end. I lost about 1 to 2 pounds a week just by doing that.
