Default Weight loss

I started on my diet and workout but under 4 months ago. Im a 22 year old male 6 foot, 3 inches. starting weight was 303 on January 23 of this year, my current weight is 261. I was just wondering if that was a good amount of weight to lose in that time frame, because I feel like I have been really slacking. My goal weight is around 215 thanks guys

So you've lost 42 pounds in 3 months, or 14 pounds per month, or just over 3 pounds per week. Nothing shabby about that. In fact, you should expect your weight loss to slow down as you become thinner and need fewer calories to support your weight.

If you haven't been lifting heavy weights, now is the time to start.

I'd suggest you take a good look at Starting Strength.

freelancemomma and JohnP pretty much said it all.

But honestly, it doesn't matter how fast your losing. If your doing it in a healthy way, then your fine. Weight generally comes off pretty fast when you start out, but the less you have to lose, the more stubborn those last few pounds are.

And YES lift weights. Weight isn't as important as body composition and you don't want to end up skinny fat. It'll slow the scale numbers down on the scale, but you'll still be losing body fat...

Good luck

Thanks everyone, I have been lifting heavy weights for about the last 3 months, and will continue for hopefully many more.

Not slacking at all! If you're lifting weight you probably look like you've lost more than that too.

Like others said, expect the losses to slow down over the coming months, but if you stick with it then you'll get there
