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.


PS Weigh/measure all your food, at least at first to make sure you have your portions under control.
47 M 5'8"

May 4, 2010...... 440? lbs. (Start FitDay Size 60 Jeans)
June 19, 2010.... 393 lbs. (First Weigh-in)
June 19, 2011.... 229 lbs. (164 lbs. gone in one year :-)
Current Weight... 185 lbs. (Size 36 Jeans)

Next Goal 169 lbs. (07/04/12)
Ultimate Goal 165 lbs. (12/31/12)

The best exercises for weight loss are Fork Putdowns and Table Pushaways.
