When I see 1,200 cal a day weight loss results on here, it's usually coming from those who did it at a normal bmi or underweight one

 

So for those who did it while overweight, I wanna see your results. How much weight did you lose in what amount of time? What bmi did you start off at and end at? If you exercised, what kind of exercise did you do?

I was at bmi 26-27 and I was losing 1-2 pounds per week at a steady pace. Although every time I hit a number like 140, 130, 120 etc. I would plateau for a week but next week start losing again. For exercise, here's how my schedule looked like:

Sunday: Cardio/rest

Monday: Full body 

Tuesday: Abs

Wednesday: Lower body

Thursday: Cardio/rest

Friday: Full body

Saturday: Abs

After somehow managed to become an obese blimp at over BMI 30, I woke up and decided to do something about it. The fastest weight-loss was when I just skipped a few things and ate perhaps 15-1700. Then I stepped up a bit and in average I ate 1200 (some days perhaps 700 and some days 1500 but in average 1200) . I didn't exercise, but walked a lot. In not to many months it took me from obese to fat and then normal. So far so good. But at the end of that period i became obsessed and for the first time felt I risked getting an ED. As I started eating less and less and it wasn't the pleasant easy ride anymore. I had been at a BMI underweight for years, then fat and obese a couple of years without having any ED. Losing a third of my weight I still had no ED. But then I fell under the EDNOS category for a short while. Or at least I and others (like the care) thought so. But I stopped and instead maintained. My thoughts and feelings changed forever though. 

 

I believe in doing things in moderation. It's safer, faster and also long lasting. As you can keep it up forever. You can't eat 1200 forever. At some point you will have to increase the intake. Risking to gain weight and that leads to eating to little again. That's the reason to why so many relapses after recovery, isn't it. You gain to much and that's like begging for a relapse. Perhaps you would lose quicker if you ate more. It sounds like a paradox, but...

When I eat around 1,200 calories per day, I can steadily lose 3lbs a week or more. However, it's never sustainable for me. I end up binging eventually bc it's too low. I hate it bc it's such a good number and such good weight loss.

I re-started counting calories in the last week of July this year (against my better judgment, I know how obsessive I can get and true to my worries I have but that is another topic).

 

I started at 117.5 kg (259.0 lb/BMI 42.1) in July

Currently I am 105.9 kg (233.4 lbs/BMI 38.0)

 

So in 11 weeks I lost 11.6 kg (25.6 lbs) and brought my BMI down 4.1 points. I usually hover between 1200 and 1300 sometimes less, on Saturdays I usually am up around 1800, but I also cook for a family including children so I am limited on Saturdays. I definitely see a lot more and faster loss at these numbers and even up to 1500 as long as I am drinking over 2 liters of water a day. When I am down at 800 for more than a couple of days I don't see barely any change. I think for me this is sustainable for quite a long time. I don't know how my body will change as I lose, I was a lot younger the last time I was at my LW. I don't really exercise, but I do walk a lot and chase a preschooler so I guess that counts? My fitbit says I burn between 250 and 500 cals a day on exercise. I don't see myself changing this up for probably another 10 kg, I expect it will continue to work for that long at least. Interestingly I saw a similar issue as mentioned above, at the round numbers I also had trouble moving on (after 2 kg at 119 it took two weeks to move it down and again after 12 kg at 109 it took a couple of weeks again. I anticipate at 99 I will have similar issue.)

how many months did it take to go from obese bmi to normal?

It was some years ago. I don't remember. I started by just eating more healthy and the first 5 kilos and more was gone in a jiffy. Then I had to eat less to keep up the speed. Or in reality the weighloss was like in steps. Plateau and then a leap, Plateau and then a leap,  and so on. From obese to visible ribs was perhaps 6 month. Or five or 8 :D 

A fun thing is that at the end I looked underweight but I was not. After 9 months people said Oh, nice, you are eating more and gaining weight. But I did not. Perhaps the remaining fat relocated from around inner organs to the outside. At the same weight I went from to skinny to where I am now. Meaning losing weight again as I am to big at the same number of kilos. 

 

Anyway - after having lived decades of "not a good relationship with food" my advice to anyone is that it is better, healthier and more long lasting  to take it easy.

I started my relapse off at 1,200. I lost ~40lbs before ultimately going into lower restriction. I just took a look at my trackers and scale app, it looks like from Feb until late May was when 1,200 was my daily limit. Now days I'm usually eating around 700/800 cals a day. No binging etc, I do have re-feed days or days I don't count because I'm with my girlfriend but even then I stay under 1,200.

So far, 50lbs over 5 months. Exercise is walking - anywhere between 10000 and 30000 steps a day.
