Wanting to lose weight very quickly

Tokioh
Tokioh2020 April

Heya, been doing intermittent fast for a week and a half now and lost 3 pounds. My goal is to lose 10-15 pounds more. And I’m trying to be patient but I am constantly seeing people on YouTube lose huge amount of weight per week and it makes me frustrated. I know the reason why my previous diet haven’t worked was because I am too impatient. This time I am trying my best to follow a healthy weight loss.

But does anyone pls have any advice I can keep telling myself everyday to keep me patient with my goals?

Hello and Welcome to the Weight Loss Forum Tokioh

First let me dispel a myth, your body will lose fat at a set rate, which varies upon how much excess fat you are carrying, these stories you hear about super fast weight loss will not be losing fat, and the weight will go back on just as quick. Eating properly and losing fat slowly and steadily will be much better long term and much more likely stay off. If you find a way of eating that you enjoy then the journey will be enjoyable and sustainable

According to many experts, losing 1–2 pounds (0.45–0.9 kg) per week is a healthy and safe. Losing more than that is considered too fast and could put you at risk of many health problems. fine-health.com/category/re... - you can read more about weight loss here. Good Luck!

Hi and welcome, Castano :)

Are you on a weight loss journey yourself? If so, then we can arrange for a proper welcome.

A word of warning, a new face posting links to a site with lots of advertising can be misconstrued as spamming. It would be better if you introduced yourself to the community first :)
