My title is super descriptive, I know! But I am recovering from a nasty knee injury that had me on crutches and my butt for about four weeks (and depressed as the scale crept up instead of down). I have been cleared for low impact workouts and am curious if anyone thinks it is possible to lose 10-15 lbs in 7 weeks.
Some info on me: I’m a 30 y/o female, 5’9” and currently 168 lbs. I am going from not tracking anything and eating everything to cutting soda, fried/junk foods and sweets, watching my carbs and starches. (Plan to stick between 1,200-1,500 calories a day) I also plan to bike to work 4 days a week (5 miles), hit my 10,000 steps each day, add in some yoga and strength training as well about 4-5 times a week.
The only reason there is a deadline is because my sister is getting married in July, I’m in the wedding and have the dress and it doesn’t fit anymore. I’m just a pinch too big for it and the store of course won’t let me exchange it.
Am I screwed or is it possible?
