Quoting *Booger Biscuit's Mom*:" Is this a safe goal? I weigh 220 and am 5'9. My court date for finalizing the divorce is in December ... [snip!] ... add to increase the weight loss? I was taking phentermine, but that didn't do anything. I am going to be taking b12 for energy."
I love weight watchers. I think it works really well!!
Healthy weight loss is at MOST 2lbs a week. lets just say Oct, Nov, and all of Dec and that's about 12 weeks, so 24lbs at most.
It COULD be hard but doable. Remember though that some weeks you just wont lose. It happens. If you set a strict "this much by this time" then you could get depressed part way through if it doesn't look like you'll make it.
I honestly think that taking it week by week is easier, and setting goals without times. So, celebrate 5%, 10%, whatever, whenever you hit it. If you see each week as a period of time, then gain or lose, you'll be excited each week and it keeps you motivated IMO.
