As for the well intended "don't lose weight fast it's not healthy" suggestions, obviously yes...but if I knew how to drop weight fast, healthy or not I'd have done it already. Whatever I am doing is healthy enough because I'm not feeling bad, not worse but better, and I feel like I know my body best.
Like I said, this is a weight loss road trip for me, not a journey.
The journey was what got me here. I want this journey to end now.
It was the unhealthy over eating that got me here to begin with and it didn't kill me. I think a few months of cutting out the garbage food isn't at all unhealthy.
I mean, I smoked since I was 12. Stopped in 2013. Then vaped up until last year. I ate all kinds of fast food and downed sodas like it was water...THAT is unhealthy.
So dropping 2lbs a week while eating well, just smaller, and exercising...sorry, that's far, far less unhealthy than what I was doing so I'm going to stick with that until my body says not to.
I listen to my body. Sometimes it has to yell for me to just deal with it but I do listen.

Almond milk, mixed fruit, slimfast, ice is what I'm introducing as a lunch type meal.
Also IF 8:16, my biggest meal first, most cals.
My daily routine I can easily live with:
Glass of water first thing, with 2 gummies multivitamins
Walk 2.5 miles
First meal is the biggest, highest cals. Instead of breakfast, lunch, dinner, I go with OMAD ...one big meal
Use those cals through the day
If I'm hungry, either high protein light lunch or smoothie
Last Chance Before Fast light snack meal, sandwich, soup, etc.
I updated my daily cals to 1450-1500 as that seemed to be a decent deficit average
Fast 16 begins, walk 2.5 miles
Drink water all day
This is generally keeping with my typical day to day but now with attention to portion size and cutting between meal snacks. Instead, it's doing healthy snackin for either of the last two.
My problem was loading up a plate. If I make anything larger then it'll be light snack or next day's big meal.
I think that will drop 1-2lbs a week.
Maybe when the plateau hits I'll do a fast food meal and soft drink...then add more miles for those calories.
