Default 9 Stone to Go till I am fab!

Hi everyone,
Just wondering if there is anyone else in the same boat as me. I am late 30s and very over weight. I have been over weight most of my life. I lost it all in my late 20s and didnt maintain so here I am again.

Slight difference this time around is that once its off now, its staying off for good. I dont want to spend the rest of my life dieting. I want a healthy lifestyle that is easy to maintain. I have given myself until the end of November 2013 to reach my target.

Weight now: 238lbs
BMI: 43.5
Target Weight: 120lbs
Target Date: 30 Nov 2013

This means I have to loose on average 2lbs a week. I am worried about excess skin so will be scouring the forums for information on best to avoid this pitfall of weight loss.

So going on the calculator I have to eat 1820 calories a day. Very managable (if anything I will struggle to hit this!) I am also a vegetarian so have to make a real effort to watch the carbs and up the protein. Right now my carbs are shocking!

I look forward to all our combined successes!
