Default Just starting

I am just starting (again) so I decided instead of trying to lose ALL the weight I need to, I am going to try to lose 25 pounds. I am at 225 right now and would like to get down to at least 200. Still a lot but I know I will feel a lot better.

Unfortunately, speed and weight loss do not go hand in hand. Most people (after all obesity in America is rampant) just can't seem to lose weight. My thought is that you need to know that you will be on a diet for up to 5 years, and after that you cannot go back to normal eating because "normal" was always a bad diet (it is the reason most of us are overweight).

I am 57, and have lost 43 pounds in 5 months-- so age does not really matter. I did not exercise, (I have a heart condition). I have been on a plateau for nearly 2 months, and then suddenly lost 12 pounds, and am losing again. I drank more water, and added more fiber to my diet.

Good luck with yours!
