How much have you lost?

Just wondering how everyone is doing. I've lost 20 lbs in the past month and I'm feeling fantastic. Lots more to go but I'm highly motivated and am making some great lifestyle changes.

How are you doing?

20 lbs in a month...holy cow! I was really excited to list my progress until I saw that! I've lost 20 pounds in the past 3 months.

::Eagerly awaiting more responses::

Yes, healthy...

I have a LOT of weight to lose and am doing it by eating healthy, whole food with my doctor's supervision. I am actually eating MORE than I ever ate before only now I'm eating the right kinds of food for me. It's not unusual for someone of my size to drop that kind of weight (20 lbs in the first month) when they finally start eating right. I know that my weight loss will slow down and even out. I have a good 200 lbs to lose in all and am happy for the kick-start by body has given me.

I'm sorry but I have trouble believing you really lost 20 pounds in a month. What are you doing and how much do you need or want to lose? I have lost 16 pounds in almost 3 months and for me that is great. 20 pounds seems unhealthy and unlikely unless your taking something to help you or devoting all your time to exercising.

To the eagerly awaiting poster, great job! You should feel proud! Slow and steady wins the race and think how much more likely you will be in keeping it off. Just the way the original poster started this makes me ? it.

hey guys, lay off....someone with ~200 lbs to lose might well have several pounds of water weight to lose, so that combined with 2-3 lbs a week can easily account for 20 lbs.

moreover, everyone is different. what is healthy for someone might be very unhealthy for someone else, and vice versa. we're here to be supportive, not to give medical advice.

I'm not sure exactly how much I've lost. I refused to weigh myself at my top weight (until I'd being working out/dieting for awhile), I was probably about 190. When I first weighed myself I was 177. I'm 152 now. I dropped a good 16 lbs within 6 weeks following "Eat to Live" by Joel Furhman. Depending on how you count -- I've lost at least 25 lbs and as much as 38. I have about 24 more to go until my goal weight. Here's to 24 lbs in 6.5 months =)

anyway, i had about 25 lbs to lose, and i am down 8! (5'5", from 155-147, heading for 130...and perhaps beyond!!!)

weight loss has stagnated in the last few weeks since i have not been exercising, but i haven't been gaining, so i know i can get back to losing as soon as i get my workout act together. :)

Congrats to you all, that's awesome! I'm down only 9 but even that bit of progress has made me feel so much better. My group is so supportive and that alone has been the key reason I've been able to stick with it.

To the doubter...

You are welcome to see what I've been eating for the past month by going to my public log:

I have just started exercising by walking 10 mins a day for 5 days each week (or at least that's the goal). That's all the exercise my knees can take right now.

Congratulations to everyone who are doing so wonderful on your weight loss and fitness goals!

I lost 11 lbs in less than a month (since 11/19 now its 12/13). trying to stick to a 1200 calorie diet (or more if I exercise the difference), < 50 g fat and > 50 g fiber. The first 5 came off fast, so I assume it was mostly water. Now about a lb every 1 to 2 weeks, fast enough to encourage myself, but not dropping below that 1200 cal that people mention.

Trish, I looked at your public log. Outstanding and very healthy eating. You go girl!
