Quoting Mayhem.:" I would like to set a goal for weight loss for July, because I'm going to Myrtle Beach in July. It ... [snip!] ... of weight to attempt to lose in the next 5 months? Is 20 lbs feasible? 1 lb/week, right? Sounds good, yeah? TIA. "
Quoting I ♥ Jack & Amelia :" I think 1-2 pounds a week sounds reasonable. There will probably be weeks you lose more or less, but I think 20 lbs. in 5 months is doable! Good luck!"
Quoting *B & D Mommy*:" That is how much I want to lose by then! It is definitely do able "
Quoting Sarah Bare-ah♡:" 1-2 pounds a week is definitely realistic, healthy and feasible. Good luck! "
Quoting lolajessup:" I lost 20 lbs from feb to June last year. It's definitely doable. But it also depends how much overweight your are."
Quoting she nan igans:" It's doable. However, don't forget you may not lose weight as quickly if you exercise or lift. You'll ... [snip!] ... lose inches since muscle takes up less space than fat. It means you will LOOK much better, even if the scale doesn't move much!"
Quoting Mayhem.:" Thank you for reminding me of that. I obviously know but I sometimes forget to like....think about it. Hopefully by July, no matter the loss, I'll be looking hot "
Quoting she nan igans:" It's amazing if you work out how much of a difference it can make without a huge scale loss. I know ... [snip!] ... loss. I know I lose WAY more inches when I work out and build muscle then when I focus only on trying to get the scale to move."
Quoting Mayhem.:" Yeah that's true! I just figure it's easier to come up with a weight loss goal, kwim? My goal should just to be less jiggly by July haha"
Quoting she nan igans:" Oh, no, I agree. Goals are good! I'd just suggest you also do measurements and pictures, so if the scale ... [snip!] ... bit of weight and it's been like 2 years!" But then I see pictures and I go "Oh, yeah, that's right. haha. I've done good!""
