I'm in FL too. That's an impressive goal you've set for yourself! You can do it, but it's going to be pretty challenging. Most nutrition and diet professionals will suggest a loss of a couple pounds a week. But that's not to say it can't be done! I hope you don't set a goal so high you're bound to miss it though. Discouragement is a big stumbling block. Be realistic with yourself!
However it works out, you've found the right place for encouragement. We're all right here in it with you! Make sure you work with all the great resources here on SP. The Nutrition Tracker is a great one. I think everyone will attest to that!
Glad to have you with us. Keep us posted on your successes!

Welcome to the team. Hope you can manage your 60 lbs in 6 months goal. For me, that would be impossible as I lose very slowly. I only average about 2-3 lbs a month. But here's wishing you plenty of success.

Hello everyone, I'm Veronica Jones living in Orlando, Fl. I am 58years old, I have 193lbs on a 5'4" frame and I am going to lose 60lbs in six months. That's my goal and I think joining this team will help. I realize now that I cannot do this alone. So glad this team is available. Thanks!
