Hey Jennifer,

Welcome to the site. Your goal is very lofty and I wish you the best.

Losing a half pound per day is not realistic. If you were to lose that quickly, it would be a fast trip to the emergency room.

Quickly losing any more than 1 to 1.5 pounds per week will likely be water weight, and will be regained just as fast. Only the obese person under medical supervision can expect lose between 3 to 4 pounds per week, but that number decreases as they continue their weight loss program.

I hope this helps - here's to a healthy and safe weight loss journey!

According to your information, you are at 133 currently... losing 1/2 pound a day is doable, for a very short term at that weight. Losing 1/2 lb to 1 lb a week is a much more reachable, realistic goal...

Remember not to cut your calories below 1200...

your mileage may vary

Hi All
Welcome, and good luck. I can relate to the emotional eating, it makes things challenging :(

Hello from Manitoba, Canada
It's a great app if used properly and within its limitations I used it for about 2 years and now I no longer have to as I have learned for myself....but it's a great tool

You can do this. That's all. You CAN do this.

If you have time add ice and maybe some Strawberries or Banana to your shake (obviously with the matching shake!!) blend it all up and it makes a really filling thick shake! Lucybell said you can count ...
