I don't know why people make goals like "Lose X by Y time." The body will respond to the care given at the rate it heals, and it can only heal from obesity but so fast.

I lost my first 70 pounds in the span of 5 of months, which is 22 weeks. It averaged out to about 3 pounds a week. When you have a higher starting weight, it comes off alot quicker when you first start, and then slows down During that time, I was eating a good amount, but didn't count calories. I stayed active during that period which may have played a good part in the pounds dropping at that rate...

Anyways...Personally, I wouldn't set a time goal like that for youself. Just lose and do your best, and whatever comes off comes off Come up with a safe plan to follow. Excerise. Your body will lose weight at the rate its suppost too

I've tried doing a diet that made me lighter within a week. Everyday I only eat oatmeal and apples. I put a little milk in my oatmeal (but no sugar). Then I ate apples everytime I felt hungry. I only tried it since I wanted to lose weight very much. It really did helped me. The only problem is, I lack energy since I have no protein during that diet. So then I decided to eat chicken (not fried) for lunch and rice (just half a cup). Sometimes if I don't feel like eating chicken I eat fish. And I continued oatmeal and apples for breakfast and dinner. It worked for me, but it really was a hard start since I was a heavy eater. Then I also did brisk walking at night, and when I feel a little lighter than before I jog (I did that everyday). Didn't go to gyms and all, I just jogged at the park everyday for an hour (because it's cheaper and it's free lol).
