Right, I haven't spoken about my weight on here at all and it's really scary for me to do.

But I started at 268.5 lbs.

After 9 days of calorie restriction (between 600 and 800 a day.) I am now 258.9 lbs.

My 1st Goal Weight: 240 lbs
My 2nd Goal Weight: 200 lbs
My 3rd Goal Weight: 160 lbs
My Ultimate Goal Weight: 126 lbs


I really want to meet my UGW within about 3/4 of a year. Could I do this by restricting and excersizing? Is this achievable?

I hope it is, but I'm terrified of gaining

I'll give my two piece, but don't be offended please I'm only speaking from personal experience and I don't know how your disorder works !

 

You'll lose weight pretty quickly, but it isn't sustainable living on that much to eat. Our bodies have biological mechanisms that will act when we are deprived of nutrients (in most people with ED's they're severely disfunctional). After a while, you might binge. It might be a small binge, or if you're like me and prone to long binges then it might end up being a week long binge. When I drop quickly, I end up putting back on some when I binge. 

 

BUT it's not impossible. If I were to give you advice that I'd give myself (I'm terrible at following my own advice) it would be to eat 1200-1500 calories and move more. You'd lose slower but it would be an easier maintained system and you'd be less likely to binge. And if you can't eat that high, make sure that when you do eat you're eating things that are full of nutrients and getting a LOT of water. I'm a junk food restrictor and it makes it so much harder to feel healthyish that way.

If you put your heart and soul into it, it can be possible! 

 

Although, perhaps if you slow you process a little bit, the result may be easier to keep. 

 

I'm starting at a similar weight. My goal is to hit under 200 this year. If I'd dare to dream more, I would, but my metabolism is so fucked up that I haven't really lost a pound even though I've been on 1600 calorie limit for a month now.

Losing slower is the best way to lose and keep it off. In about 2 years, yeah it's doable. Use a weight loss calculator online and it'll let you know what to eat to get to a goal weight in a certain span of time.

I dont think it will be posible that fast. Like, first you'll lose fast, but when you reach a lower weight losign 2 pounds would take more and more time to do. Im sure you'll get there eventually! just not as fast as you are projecting. Why that time period?

And, as everyone is saying, losing weight a bit slower will make it a more permanent change.
Im high restricting (average 1000 to 1200 daily) and I lose around 2kg per month (4/5 pounds).

Everything is achievable if you want to work hard enough for it :) in the beginning it will go really fast, Wich is a great motivation to keep going on. I would recommend to sometimes also have a few higher calorie days (like 1300cal). Simply because it's hard living off of so little for a long time. It's going to be a long way but you can do it!

Thank you all!! I've decided to up my caloric intake to 1100 I think that I'd rather be able to keep the weight off when I get to my UGW!

Why the strict time limit? Just focus on continuing to lose and let it happen within it's own time. It's better to lose and keep it off than to get discouraged because you aren't reaching your goal within some artificially set time limit.

 

Also keep in mind the weight always comes off faster right at the beginning. That's very normal. It will slow down and it isn't because you're doing anything wrong.
