Ok, im 170lb right now, and i have FINALLY come up with a goal. I AM going to be 130 by the end of june. SO, if my math is correct, that means that i have 6months to loose 40lbs. I think this is possible. Thats, lets see---24weeks--- 40lbs, oh boy, i need a calculator... ok its like just under 2 lbs a week. Do you guys think i can healthily do it?? OMG, if i could do this it would be soooo awesome. Please help me, i need a good exercise plan that i can do inside since the weather here is nasty. Wow, i think i can do it!! but i need your help!!

Hi! I have to say I mostly agree with the person who posted before, (Kat?). However I have my suspicions as to her motives. I think its good you are really motivated to lose weight and once you set your mind on something, you can acheive it! The mind really is a powerful thing. Stick to it and you'll reap the rewards!

Hey Kathryn, I think you can do it, I seriously do!! What you should do it write down each day a list of things that you're going to eat on that day, and stick to it, ticking it off as you go along. That means that say onec a week u can give yourself a little treat and keep on top of it. Also as far as exercising goes, this helps you maintain your weight loss as well as keeping it off. Try doing 10 crunches in the morning and 10 at night. Add 10 on once a month and you should be able to cope. Crunches is wher you lie on the floor, put your hands at the side of your head, and raise your back slightly (4 inches) not too much off the floor. Do this 10 times really quickly, and it should encourage your stomach muscles considerably. Also try exercise for 30 minutes 3 times a week. This can include fast walking or just dancing in your lounge to the music channels! I did all this and I'm not 102lbs! I'm positive u can do it too, u just need the will power and when you start seeing the progress u feel amazing! :) You're an inspiration. Kat
