That is a really ambitious goal! I agree that you should break that into increments of 10 pounds - into smaller goals. If you are young, really healthy, able to build up from little exercise to 1.5 hours a day and motivated, you can lose 60 pounds in a year. However, if you have any special challenges, have a family, a job and aren't young, that goal is one that will probably leave you feeling demotivated before three months are out. On paper, it looks achievable but paper doesn't account for being ill, having an injury from pushing too hard and too fast, plateaus and life. I just don't want you to be disappointed and feel bad if you lose 40 pounds in a year - a wonderful achievement. I doubt that you put 60 pounds on in one year and I believe that you can only lose 60 pounds in a year if everything falls into line perfectly. All that said, I'll be a cheerleader for you and am here to help you in every way I can!
