Can I lose 80 pounds in less than a year . If I'm working out 5 days a week twice a day and dieting

07 Mar
Yeah it's possible, On average I think a person can expect to lose between,1-2 lbs a week so you fall into that range if you stay really consistent.

That's quite an optimistic goal.  It's doable, but ou're going to have to be exceptionally deciplined.  I think half of that is more reasonable. What is you're starting point?  Age?  Height?  Weight?  Calorie goal?

Don't diet, just eat clean as a lifestlye.

To be honest, for most people, no, it's not a realistic goal.

It's totally possible, sure, but most people would fail, even though there is no actual real reason why anyone couldn't do this. It's all in the mind.

We are creatures of habit, & we naturally resist change. Even if you want it, your mind will tell you lies that make you think you are "changing your mind" or that it is, for some reason, impossible for YOU to do, when really it is your subconscious resistance to change.

If you stick with it, & keep coming back after setbacks, you will make progress, guaranteed. Don't let setbacks make you feel defeated, that is your mind paying tricks on you, trying to convince you to give up.

All you gotta do is keep making progress, no matter how small. A lot of times small progress is the kind that will actually stick and be a true life change.

Agree. Also while losing weight most people reach plateaus that might have them on a standstill for several months, in worst case. Even though it's possible to lose 1-2 pounds a week, you need to take into account that you probably won't lose that much every single week. Personally I wouldn't set a time goal because of the risk of not reaching it. Or I would be really realistic, having a goal of losing say 20 pounds in a year. The slower a weight-loss is, the bigger chance it will stay off permanently.

It's completely possible but you'd have to be very motivated and dedicated. I'd start with setting mini Weightloss goals and go from there celebrating every 5-10 lbs lost.

Yea you are right and I need to start celebrating even 5-10 pound lost because I have a bad habit of not doing that and just overlooking it because it's not my final goal
