Welcome! Yes, by all means, check in on the 100+ Pounds to Lose threads. We know the problems with being heavy and the challenges in losing it.
I've done 1,000 cals before and lost weight very fast. Tough to stick to, though, and there are problems with losing too fast.
This time around I'm doing 1500 cals. Don't know how much I lost in the first six weeks, but in the last 26 I've lost a full 100. I still have another 100 to go, but no problem--it will happen.
If you commit, stick with your plan and use FitDay every day you can do it too!
