Yes.20 pounds is a great starting goal. Also the hardest part is always the beginning so don't give up. Cut down on soda and juice and avoid fast food as much as possible. You will lose 20 pounds in a year just by this. Also, set up a schedule when excersizing to stay on track. Drink more water. All this is gonna be hard at first but sooooo worth it when the (first) 20 pounds come off!!! Good luck!
