Can you help with any ideas to help. Im 213 and want to be 120 by this time next year. Any advice would help. Thanks a million
My advice is to pick a calorie level (made up of good, "real" food) that gives you the desired calorie deficeit you need to lose your 93 lbs. in a year yet is enough to keep you "full" and thus less apt to "cheat" or quit.

Videos are great--20 to 30 minutes a day will help you a lot. Walking, too, is a great exercise that is cost free.

Lastly, make sure you log in here at least daily and log all your food and activities. Keeping track is so important.

Regards,
Michael

PS Weigh/measure all your food, at least at first to make sure you have your portions under control.
