Talking Is my weight loss time frame realistic?

Hey Everybody!

I'm on day two of the program (after pre-conditioning), and I really am liking it a lot. My mom says I look thinner already (I'm 18...ha.) And the amount of food isn't a bother, and eating out for lunch isn't too hard either!

My goal is to lose 34 pounds by August 1st, so that I can leave for college confidant in myself, and capable of making good, healthy choices! Is this 34 pounds, 6 of which I've lost already, so 28 pound loss realistic in 10 weeks?? Thanks everybody!!

I lost that much in 10 weeks. Actually I think it was closer to about 7 or 8 weeks.

They do tell us 3-5 lbs/week. I think the main factor in meeting your goal will be to stay on program and drink lots of water. Good Luck!! I wish I had done this when I was your age.

yes, totally doable! You're young, so WALK an hour a day several times a week.
went from 243-180 (size 24-24 jeans to size 14) between Aug 09 to Dec 09, and I am OLD! I now wear Gap long and lean jeans and look smaller than the size 14 that I am wearing. I am totally confident you can achieve this with No difficulties! Avoid situations that will compromise you, don't make exceptions, and don't drink alcohol! You are a knock out so look out world for Sandy!

Not until you push yourself to the limit and then past that, will you begin to realize "exactly what" you are capable of handling physically & mentally. Yes it's scary, hard, & exhausting. But, when you challenge yourself & strive to work harder than you ever have at the beginning of each day, when you finally stop to ....rest, you'll be more positive than anxious about your future!

Did they say it was??? I think it is doable but it will not be easy. You have to be very diligent and stay on program 95-100%. When I was on program 95% I lost consistently 2 pounds a week. If I had more water and exercised more I may have lost the 3-5. The bars, pudding, MRS and hot chocolate really helped me. Make sure you utilize all that the center has to offer also. You can do it!!!!
