My husband and I found out we were expecting and sadly I suffered a miscarriage around 12 weeks :( I gained 10 pounds and want to reach a goal of 140. Right now I weigh in at 165 what is a reasonable time frame for 25 pounds?

Hi Rose, I'm sorry to hear of your loss. I've lost twice before as well (at 10-11 weeks). Depending on the timing, your 10lbs gained may actually be just mostly bloating/water weight and then anything additional if you had a procedure.

For 25lbs at 165lbs and 5'6, a reasonable deficit gives you a good 4-5 months to lose (maybe more, maybe less). Take care of yourself, hugs.

I'm sorry for your loss! Sacha is right that a fair bit may be bloating, so don't get too discouraged. Just pick a plan and be consistent on it, nothing too extreme, and be patient. The losses will come, but you cannot control the scale - only your behaviors. Focus on those and the rest will take care of itself.
