What is a "reasonable" goal?
Thanks for the help, guys and gals Smile Really appreciate it all

Started the gym proper today too, so might be my target weight is "harder" to reach, due to more muscle - but that's not a bad thing as long as I'm a toned chubbette Very Happy

Unless you have an underlying medical issue relating to pregnancy and body fat, I wouldn't bother with it. My Mum (a midwife) has had pregnant women come to her with BMIs of over 50.

I seriously wish I was joking on that...

And I do agree with the others. Dump the diet pills and record everything you eat. Then find a plan and stick to it.

Good luck <3

What is a "reasonable" goal?
I have what is probably best described as a sugar addiction. Only sugar and carbs I allow myself now are fruit and veg; if I don't, I gain weight as opposed to shedding it, regardless of exercise.

My brother (a former PTI for the TA) pushes protein and lack of processed carbs. So I have fruit for breakfast and it seems to do me fine.

What is a "reasonable" goal?
If I'm hungry, I eat. Got that one from when I did the Atkins diet. Just no carbs/sugars seems to cut down kcals a lot.

That'd probably be it, Riocaz. I'm consuming around 1200kcals a day but again that varies based on day (whether or not I'm at home, etc) and if it's a case of I'm not losing weight due to excess exercise with lack of calories, I'll up it as needed.

According to my Diet Calendar I'm averaging a loss of around 2300 kcals a day. Of course, it could all be lies, but you never know!
