Keep in mind we are all different and are bodies will do different things. I am older and it has taken me 9 months to lose 50 pounds. I am currently losing at a rate of about 3 pounds a month. I'm quite alright with that and am hoping because I am doing it slowly I will be more likely to keep it off for good.

Be careful about setting big goals and then being discouraged or disappointed if you don't make them. It's most important that you get the weight off, not how long it takes.

It's very easy to compare ourselves to others and how well they are doing. There are some here on the boards who have lost terrific amounts of weight in fairly short periods of time. That may or not be you. What you need to do is find a program you can stick with and that works for you. If you lose 2 pounds a week that's great, if it's only 1/2 pound a week that's great too cause it's still losing!

You CAN do this!
