S/C/G: 342/SEE TICKER/192

Height: 5 ft 9 in

Usually the people losing 100 pounds in 6 months are those of us who were "super obese". I've lost about 90 pounds in 6 months, but I started off at 342. Also, anything less than 1200 calories throws your system into starvation mode and it clings to all the fat you have...but then it will begin eating your muscles and organs eventually. I eat between 1500-1700 calories a day and consistently lose 2 pounds a week. This is not a quick fix. it probably took you years to gain your weight, so you have to be prepared for it to take some time to lose it. Its a lifestyle change. If you lose it unhealthfully the chances are greater that you will gain it back.
