REmember to set reasonable goals for yourself; the closer you get to your goal weight, the slower the weight will come off, and the longer it will take. It's easy to go from 250 to 200... there's a higher percentage of body fat to lose. To go from 200 to 150 is hard!
You can reasonably attempt to lose about 3% of your remaining weight goal per week. For you right now, that's 25 lbs, so you can try to lose .75-1 lb a week. The less you have to go, the slower you will see if come off. When you're down to 10 lbs to go... you can expect to try for .25 to .3 lbs er week!
You may not be able to lose 25 lbs in 7 months; you may, but it will be tough!
