Default How much will I lose?

Well, here I am.

I'm 50, am 5'-8" and weigh 260 lbs..... I was 292 lbs in Sept of 2009, had high blood pressure of 235/135. Went on meds for the blood pressure got that under control, and platuea'd for the last 3 months.

8 days ago made a bet with a couple buddies of who would lose 10 lbs 1st and won the bet, this morning -12.2 lbs!!!

So as I have said, 260 lbs today and want to lose 100 lbs to get to 160lbs of active muscle!

I used to be 420, now down to 283 as of 4/1 weighing in again today. I want to get down to 150 (the highest weight in my normal range). I am 5'5" (used to be 5'7" but I've lost 2 inches due to the weight). Been on FitDay for 4 weeks and in the first 3 weeks I've lost 23 pounds. I want to lose another 50 before my 30th birthday in July.

I am 33 Female and I am 250.5, 5'6 wanting despretly to get to 140 as soon as possible. I know though that it has to go slowly. I am also scared of having extra skin from losing so much weight.

I get frustrated because I do not know how to count calories very well unless I want to eat from boxes all the time. I workout 5 days a week on my lunch for 45 mins each and have not lost weight on the scales but it does show in my clothes since I am now wearing jeans I could not before. I really need to see it on the scales though. I am tired of being the fat one all the time and need to change.

Chris, Honey, you'll be ok, just don't give up! we'll get there, someday!
i have been working on my Carb/ Fat/ Protein Ratio, trying to keep the carb as low as i can, but the best i've done with carbs is keeping it around 35 to 40%, also trying to raise the protein level higher to around 35-40% as well.
what is your strategy?
