Congratulations for the 4lbs you've already lost, but I think you're being just a tad over ambitions wanting to lose 88lbs in 6 months. You would need a weekly average weight loss of just about 3.4lbs, which you didn't manage in your first 2 weeks.

A quick fix diet will lead to a quick gain, what you need is a sensible, healthy and sustainable weight loss plan. Have a look at the NHS 12 week plan and see of that's something you'd like to try.

All the best to you :)

Good for you, I'm sure you'll find it easy to follow and it will probably afford you at least the results you're enjoying currently :)

Hello there and well done on losing 4lbs in 2 weeks. I've read what Moreless said and I wholeheartedly agree. If you set your goals too high and don't achieve at least 3lbs every week you could become disheartened and give up. Much better to have a more realistic goal and then possibly do better than planned! A quick fix rarely lasts.

Keep going. Well done on the weight loss. Sadly for all of slowly lost is better and I so wish that was not the truth.
