A year and a half. I was about taking it slow and finding the eating and exercise routine that worked for me as a permanent change.

i started my weight loss in may and have lost 30 pounds. So about 5 months. but, i messed up a lot and if i would have been stricter, im sure i could have lost it in 3-4 months. i think it all just depends on how disciplined you are. good luck
October 14, 2011 8:45 PM
I had tons to lose. I lost 20 in the first month. It is all going to depend on each individual.

started same date and have lost 24. If you don't have as much to lose it sometimes takes longer so it is hard ot give an answer

March - September. 6 months.

I was pretty fierce about it, never "cheated", always exercised, always ate back exercise calories, used a heart rate monitor, tried to always be as accurate as possible. When I hit a plateau, I retweaked my numbers and tried to figure out where the stall was happening, foods or exercise, etc. Did LOTS of research on this website and others to make sure I wasn't wasting time LOL!

Best of luck! smile

Are you serious? What did you do?
October 14, 2011 8:49 PM
Wow, that's amazing that you can lose weight so fast. I lost 20 in four months and am a standstill at the moment due to a couple of bad week. My goal is to lose another 20 by xmas, but that might be a little unrealistic.

Started April 1, 2010 at 177lbs and by Sept 2010 I was 150lbs. :)

Ok so because of the variability in how much time you all lost 30lbs, so it is realistic to lose it by January right? That's my goal to lose it by my birthday.

Just use MFP to track what I eat, walk around 30 minutes minimum each day while wearing my baby in a baby carrier, and I breastfeed which burns an extra 300cals a day. I also try to eat all my calories including exercise calories.

A lot of people who lose weight that quickly have a lot to lose. It comes off quicker with that much to lose. You only have 30lbs to lose. You shouldn't count on (or even try for) any more than a pound a week, and even then it seems like the last 10lbs take forever for a lot of people.

It has taken me 7 months to lose 30lbs. For me it's taken hard work and determination. Working out as much as possible and watching what I eat has been super important.
