Welcome to the site. I am new, too (joined 12/4/5). I would say if you eat right and exercise you can expect significant change in 12 weeks.

Many programs out there usually talk about "dramatically reshaping your body" in three months. And if you think about it, the final 3 on "The Biggest Loser" were at the ranch for three months.

Diet plays such a HUGE role in changing your body and that happens to be the hardest part for me.

Best of luck to you!

Welcome! I'm like you; I definitely want to know how long will it take me to lose the weight and be a whole new me! But I'm trying to look at things differently and just make small changes I can live with forever. I don't want to feel like I'm on a diet forever, but I'd like to be healthy forever! Be good to yourself and don't push yourself too hard! I think you'll find small changes to your eating habits and lifestyle will have a big effect on the way your body feels.

Look forward to seeing you here at 3FC and good luck!
