My name is Kayla and I'm trying to lose 2 stone in 2 months at the least

Hello my name is Kayla and I'm trying to lose 2 stone in 2 months I've only got two months to lose it I really need to lose it I will begin again on January 1st and will hopefully be finishing somewhere around march I want to get my bellybutton pierced but need to lose weight before I can I want to lose weight so that I can feel better about my body and be more confident it would be a great help if anyone would have any suggestions on how I could do this as I have tried every diet known to man and only the military diet has worked for me but the thing is with the military diet you are practically starving yourself and you always gain weight back very quickly so if anyone has any suggestions please let me know I want to lose weight because I will be going away in August but want to have my belly button pierced around June so that it will have time to heal also because I have been trying to lose weight for the past 2 years but I've only lost 1 stone my target weight is 7 stone and I currently weigh 9 stone as you can see that there is a big drop in weight but that is what I want so please this is my last option if anyone has any suggestions or tips on how to lose 2 stone please let me know

Hi Kaylahiggings, seven stone seems to be very light, and not knowing your BMI, it's difficult to help. Perhaps the best first stop, is to go to the NHS BMI calculator and enter your details, this would give you a starting BMI. If your BMI is firmly in the healthy range, it's not advisable to go on a diet.

If you wish to have a more toned body, then perhaps you should be looking at sport and exercise to give you the physique you seem to want :)

Good luck :)


Same as Tewson here. Hi and welcome: have you calculated your BMI?

Agree with the others, check your Bmi. If you are 5ft 2, 7 stone would be at the very bottom of your healthy Bmi range. If your taller than that 7 stone would be underweight. 2 stone in 2 months is quite a fast rate, especially for someone who isn't that far over their healthy ideal weight, if you do actually need to lose this much it would be more achievable to do it over a longer timescale - if you want the piercing done at the beginning of June that gives you five months. You've already tried a very strict diet which only worked temporarily as its not sustainable longer term so better to make healthy changes and let the weight come off more steadily. ☀️


I don't understand why you can't have your belly button pierced when you weigh 9 stone. What is stopping you doing it now?
