Hi, I'm trying to create a realistic time goal to lose my first 30 pounds....past experiences about slow weight loss and extremely quick are appreciated :)
I have lost about 30lbs-I started in November. So..4 mths. I had a 4 week plateau though, which sucked. And I broke through that with increasing protein, decreasing carbs and eating maintenance for a week
Typically I lose 2lbs a week
Thanks Delaneia :)
Congrats and good luck :) Thanks :)
Thanks :) Good luck and good job :D
It took me about a year to lose 30lbs, I still need to lose about 40 more, but slow and steady wins the race! Good luck to you.
Congrats on your dedication and weight loss :) Thanks :D
My total goal was to lose just over 30 lbs, and it took me about 10 months. Actually, I think the first 30 took about 8 months, the last 3lbs took 2 months.
You're welcome chickee :) Good luck to you ♥
And..I love your avatar slogan Sumayah
I started on Jan 2nd and have lost 31lbs so far
Making small changes that you can stick with is key!! And definitely figure out what kinds of cardio and strength training you really like do those too will become a regular part of your new lifestyle :)
I think the first 30 took me about 3 months. But I lost about 10 pounds in the first two weeks, which was mostly water weight. The amount you should aim to lose per week depends on how much you weigh...losing 2 pounds a week is probably fine for someone who is obese or moderately overweight, but would most likely be too much for someone that's only slightly overweight or already at a healthy weight and only trying to lose vanity pounds.
Then the next few weeks I was exercising but not counting calories....
Anyway, good luck!
