There are many different ways to loose fat or weight.

There are many different ways to work out what your target weight should be.

¿Do you have a target weight or schedule in mind?

They say that the longest journey starts with the first step ...so you can start loosing weight without having a target weight.

It helps to weigh yourself every week... so you can make sure that you are not loosing weight too quickly. Some members have lost more than two pounds a week, but the normal advice is not to try... and weight lost slowly is more likely to stay off.


Hi patricia6371, welcome, you have come to the right place, there is lots of support here. An administrator will contact you later with advice and help on using the forum,

I need to lose a lot of weight and have tried many times in the past but soon given up as was disappointed if I didn’t lose pounds every week. By joining this forum and reading the posts each day not only does it keep me motivated but I have at last realised slow and steady is the way to go. Good luck.


Welcome and good luck on your journey! :)
