    Hey! I didn't lose that much, but I did lose 125 lbs. And i've kept it off for 6 years.

    But losing 125 lbs took me 3 years! Yes, it can be done faster, but this is about your long-term future. Don't expect fast results. This is for your life.

    You can do this!

    YES! Always so happy for young people that TAKE THEIR BODIES BACK while they are young. You are giving your self a gift every day! You CAN do this. WANT it. Don't be afraid of the journey love. Just STAY on it. I have few regrets in my life but I can honestly say that not taking my body back when I was 29-50 years old is my biggest regret. Don't have regret that lasts that long. If I may, I would say to you that 5 lb goals for me at first kept me encouraged and they add up quickly. Enjoy and have fun discovering what your amazing body can do when we use our amazing minds too.

    Set yourself reasonable and short term goals so that you don't get frustrated. Also if you lose the weight too quickly you will end up with a lot of flabbiness and loose skin. Focus on learning as much as you can about your health and what your body actually needs and you will have no problem losing the weight. It's a lot to learn about and shocking how wrong almost everything that has ever been marketed to you has been.
