    I, a married 42 year old really white guy, laughed at this thread...

    ...but now I feel guilty.

    Should I?

    Edit: for clarification

    Why does the OP only have 3-4 months? Is she dying? Or getting married (which is the same thing)?

    White people generally lose weight at a rate 2.3 times slower than everyone else. Sorry hun, you're out of luck. It will most likely take you 6.89 months instead.

    See! I knew there was a reason I lose slow. Finally somebody has validated my theory! :wink:

    Having a tan helps not only with losing weight, but with the white guilt. I felt much more guilty in February than I do now.

    I'm 66% west African, 30% Scandinavian and 4% Native American. Can someone extrapolate my weight loss without exact tribal information on the 4?

    No problem, I'll calculate that for you. Oh. Ummmm.... Uh oh. I have some bad news. You're already dead. So sorry.

    RIP.

    Teammate down.

    i have also been strugglin with this. i been trying to lose and been tracking and eating only half back my exercise calories but been not seeing anything different on the scales. i am also white mostly irish and scottish but there might be an ancestor in the wood pile because i tan good but have not been losing the weight. they told me in a different thread to not eat white foods like mashed tatoes and white rice and white bread and i'm wondering if that was advice that doesn't work because i tan good?

    OMG! This may be my issue as well. Does anybody know the answer to this?

    You just have to brown your mashed potatoes and rice, and toast your bread when you're tan. Duh.

    White people can generally lose up to 1kg a week, but at your weight probably 0.5kg/week would be about right, so 2kg a month.

    Basically to make this program work, use the tools available to set your goal for 0.5 kg (1lb) per week and stick to your calorie goals. Exercise will help you look and feel better and make you healthier, just log whatever you do and you get extra calories for your effort. Aim to get to zero at the end of the day, leaving a bunch of leftover calories is counterproductive.

    I just laughed soooooo hard reading this.
