Default New weight loss journey- please support me! Need tips!

I'm embarking on a 25 day challenge for myself.
I have a ball coming up and I would really like to lose some weight and look good for it.

I am currenlt 1.54 metres tall and weight 56.6kg which is almost 125 pounds. I eventually want to weigh 48kg but I just want to set myself this short term goal for now. My BMI is 23.87 which is healthy but borderline overweight. I would rather we underweight than overweight. I don't mind how shallow that sounds but I've been skinny and ever since I've put on weight I've been unhappy. People look at you differently when you don't have a pretty face. Sometimes people don't look at you at all.

For me exercise has always been easy but staying away from sugar and chocolate has been the hardest part. I've decided to give up on all desserts and confectionary/chocolate althought I still plan to have my daily tea/coffee.

Today I was at the gym for an hour and I managed to exercise off 500 calories (not sure how accurate the machine was but I had a decent workout so I'm gonna say I'm on the right track). I plan to do this every day for the 25 days until the ball. This means that:

25 x 500 = 12500 calories lost from exercise
3500 calories = 1 kg
therefore: I could theoretically lose 3.57kg's

However, I know I will be eating more to compensate for the extra exercise although I will be going to great length to eat better and DRINK MORE WATER. I really only need to lose 2.6kg so I have a leeway of 0.97kg.
All this mathematics is just for my peace of mind. Does my plan sound reasonable? On the last day (the ball) I also could use some tips to look particularly skinny. Anybody have any ideas?
