    I'm back again... lost 50 lbs here about 4 years ago, gained it all back. I'm 5'5" and weigh 234. Goal weight is 140-150, and I know it will take a year or more. My mistake last time was starving myself and losing weight too fast, so I need friends who are on a realistic long-term journey. Feel free to add me as a friend!

    I do not do the friend thing. I do have a group for people with 75 or more pounds to lose (or they started that way) that are trying to lose their weight in a sensible and sustainable fashion.

    I am afraid you will not get all your weight off in a year. At least not in a healthy way. You can get a lot of it off. What many people do not realize is that you can lose 2 pounds a week when you are heavier but as you get lighter you need to drop to 1.5 for a time, then 1, and for some it drops to .5lb per week at the very end. This is because as your body weight decreases your ability to metabolize fat goes down and losing faster reduces muscle. It is also because your calorie goal keeps going down and trying to maintain a 1000 calorie a day deficit (the amount to lose 2lbs per week) cuts you deeper and deeper.

    I would like to lose 80-90lbs. I lost 50lbs 7 years ago then I had 2 kids and, I've gained weight after each one. The youngest one is 4 now and, I need to do something. I'm not comfortable with my own body. I had a dr's appointment yesterday and, I need to check back in with her in 4 months. I really would like to have lost 10% of my weight at that time.
