eight months. Having BED amongst other issues made it so hard for me, but the long way works better for me than to diet with a lot of restriction and ending up weighing double what I started.

7 months the first time around, then binged my ass off for a few months in a row and gained it all back. then it took me a full year (+ 3-4 months if you count the yoyo and plateauing I had around that weight before settling into it) the second time around. mind you these are the times that I tracked and do not include previous attempts (I think 2 more) during which I didn't keep records of my weight. since starting my weight loss journey I lost 18 kg (almost ~40 lbs) in total and plan to lose 4 more (almost ~9 lbs) but it's been hard and not a linear process at all.

At my highest weight, a month and a week to get 20 lbs off. 20 lbs before my lowest, a little under 5 months. I was also b/ping (exercise purging) a lot during the road to my lowest, while at my highest I was eating like an average of 300, and not working out or binging at all (depression episode).

A little over 3 months. Low restricting caused by taking a medication.

8 months, I had just gotten out of treatment and was struggling with bingeing pretty hard. After I got past that 20lbs losing happened much more quickly.

just under two and a half months, probably because of the combination of my adhd meds fucking with my appetite and low restriction

about a month and a half the first time around. I was borderline overweight then tho and ate very little plus compulsive excercise. Miss my teenage days tbh

Second time it took me three months because I was going slow about it and dropped to my lw then.

This time around I dropped 15lbs over the course of 1.5 months with high restriction but am plateauing now for 3 months :[

A few months, 2-3 with low restriction and a 5-day binge. Then 1 month of fasting.

Same, a majority of it happened within the first 2 weeks of my relapse. I didn't even know I was capable of losing 16 lbs in 2 weeks but I was also pretty big.
