I have the same goal, and I have the same sort of challenge. I exercise and try to eat right, but I feel like I'm getting heavier because I'm gaining a lot of muscle (mostly in my legs). The scale hasn't moved at ALL. What should I change?

To lose 100lbs all depends on your diet/food intake and exercise. You don't want to lose the weight too fast because you will end up gaining it all back and then some. So far I have lost about 4 pounds in about 1 week. If I lose about 12 pounds a month I'll be happy. I have to lose somewhere around 150 pounds so it will be a nice long journey for me. Just eat right and exercise and you'll lose the 100 in no time emoticon

I don't think that is too ambitious at all. I have lost 60 pounds in 4 months. If I keep going at this rate then 100 pounds will take me just under 7 months. That sounds crazy to me and I know eventually I am going to hit a plateau, but I just keep chugging along. I have completely changed my diet and make good choices when eating out and exercise for at least an hour 4 times a week. I agree with the last post that you definitely need to reward yourself at different levels of weight loss I would say every 10-15 pounds you should set up some way to reward yourself without using food as a reward. Good Luck with your journey!

It comes down to a simple question: what do you want out of life, and what are you willing to do to get it?

However, I think making mini goals will help a lot - keeps your mind focused on the prize. And of course, it is so important to reward yourself along the journey. Perhaps every 5-10lbs, give yourself an incentive prize! For example, buying a new books, getting a manicure. Something like that.

Enjoy the journey! You can totally do this!

Take care,
Juliana

Good for you!!! I have lost 60lbs. in 6 months so far. I'm hoping to loose a total of 110 in a year. Mine came off quickly at first, but is starting to slow down now. I started off mainly adjusting my diet and trying to get a 10 minute walk in everyday. I slowly worked my way up to 1 hour of cardio 5 days a week and 30 minutes of strength training 3 times a week. Now I only have a half hour free in the early morning- so I've been jogging. I would definitely say to start out slow though. Don't try to do it all in one week. It's good to start out a little slower and work your way up. You'll feel good about yourself and then want to take that next step, instead of feeling obligated to do so. Blessings to you! emoticon emoticon

How long should it take to lose 100lbs? I have a year from today. I will be working out 4 times a week. Is that too ambitious?
