    So far, 75 pounds in about a year, but for a full two months I just maintained because I was not as diligent as I could have been, so I really should be at 85 pounds lost if I was more dedicated haha

    Somewhere before MFP I lost 20 pounds in about 4 months. On MFP the First year I lost 65. Second year I lost 20. I am pretty sedentary though. I also have a pretty sluggish metabolism. On the upside I am maintaining well.

    Started off around 350lbs. I've dropped 45 pounds in the last 6 month. Light exercise but a total overhaul in diet. Came off quick at first but I've hit a plateau the last 3 or 4 weeks and need to kick up the workouts. Slow and steady with more of a focus on changing my eating habits worked the best for me, good luck!

    Anyone feel free to friend me, I'm always looking for motivation!

    lost 51 a little over year... right now I am up about 8-9 pounds from then. Been doing this since on Aug. 2012 and trying hard to stop the upward swing currently in last couple years. It is a day to day/hour to hour struggle. Hang in there and just keep at it.

    I’m down 45 pounds in 105 days.
    I’m 39, 6’4”, with a goal weight of 225. I started at 309. If the pace continues I should be done in slightly over 6 - 7 months with the calorie deficit, then a long journey of recomp and maintenance.

    So far 10 months to lose 30lbs. Still looking to lose 20 but am only 8lbs from a healthy BMI now, so I anticipate another 10 months or so.
