      I lost 100lb in a bit under a year. It's a struggle but it's doable. You need a fixation to use as a stress reliever instead of food. I used weight lifting. You should be looking into volume eating so you can stay full while eating less food. Cardio is a lot less important than you'd think but it's a useful tool if there are weeks you overate or something. I ate 5 meals a day and I exclusively ate high volume or highly satiting foods and I aimed to lose around 1% of my bodyweight per week. A little more or less was fine

      Anon i went from 325 to 203 in a little under a year in a half. Its doable but the biggest things I could tell you are:

      -Restrict alcohol
      -Big breakfast, smaller lunch, tiny dinner
      -cut out drinking sodas and you can still drink diet sodas but don't have to many a day
      -cut out sweets and breads as much as you can.
      -it doesn't matter what style of nutrition you pick just pick something you can stick to. Im not a huge fan of keto but it can work.
      -stay consistent
      -move more if that's weight lifting or running just move more. You can pick something to hyper focus on later.

        None really tbh. I picked up weight lifting 4 years ago. Im at 19.2% bf atm and have been below 20% for about 2 years now. My love handles are the last thing hanging onto me. Shooting for around 15% by the end of the year.

        losing only 40lbs in six months has put loose skin on my arms, but I skipped everything but leg day. If I point at the mirror it's pretty noticeable under my upper arm, but in any other position or with sleeves on there's nothing bad yet.
        what I did: cardio, averaging 400-500 calorie deficit, gradually improving the quality of what I ate so that two large meals a day was enough.

      How long and intense was your weight lifting?
      I might just start out with a pair of dumbbells for 5 days a week. How big of a caloric deficit were you in?

        >How long and intense was your weight lifting?
        It varied but normally it'd last around an hour and a half. I'd be doing around 20 working sets per session and each set would be to failure
        >I might just start out with a pair of dumbbells for 5 days a week
        That could work to start with. Just be sure to do a split if you want to lift that frequently so you're giving your different muscle groups some rest time between sessions
        >How big of a caloric deficit were you in?
        Started at nearly a 1500kcal deficit and ended at around a 1000kcal deficit. Although around every 20lb I lost I had to drop my calories by another 100-150kcal though because of the smaller body size

          Absolutely based. Did you do anything at all to prevent any? Right now I'm taking collagen and using a moisturizer every day after showering. There is already a noticeable fade in my stretch marks. Starting weight is a big factor I think, I was 300 at my absolute heaviest, now I'm 280. I also know that age is a major factor. I'm 25, so let's hope that isn't too late.

    Don't eat until 6pm. Then slice of a piece of the toast you cooked on the weekend and reheat it over rice in the rice cooker so the fat drips down and seasons the rice.
    Go to the gym three days a week. 5x5 or any other basic program is fine.
    Figure out whatever it was that led you to become a fatass and fix it or you'll relapse and gain all the weight back.

    One year is doable but don't set a massive goal for it, just be patient and form better eating habits. It's super simple but takes time. You didn't put those 100lbs on overnight, they won't come off overnight.

    T.lost 100 lbs exactly. I lost 70 over a year, the last 30 after taking a few months off when i got my first job.

    Consistency is the most important part. 100lbs in a year is doable, assuming you’re very obese. It’s roughly 2 pounds a week - 1000kcal/day deficit. Start by doing that every day, then figure out how to keep it up on weekends, holidays, birthdays, travel, work, etc. that’s the hard part. You have to incrementally change everything in your life to become healthier.

    My dad dropped 100lbs after I got him an apple watch for his bday a few years ago. The watch would congratulate him for achieving x amount of steps per day. Eventually he became obsessed with hitting the steps and started jogging almost every day. Slimmed down from 270 to 165 and he's 5'9". Lot of loose skin but he can run marathons now and refuses to eat non whole foods.

    I did lots and lots of walking everyday in addition to OMAD. You just wanna keep active and busy yourself so not thinking of food all day. OMAD is cool because when you're finally ready to eat at the end of the day you can have a huge meal and don't go to bed hungry.

    not 100 lb yet, but I went from 270 to 220 in about a year just intermittent fasting (basically eating 2-3 meals with no snacks). completely stalled on weight loss since I started hitting the gym to put on muscle before I try to lose it again so I don't look like a floppy mess with elephant skin

    One of my friends lost 40 kg in 9 months this year. Basically just starved himself to death, his cals were like 1500 max for a few months. Then he'd hit a goal and might frick around for a week. Slowly increased his exercise, but I think it was his diet discipline mostly.

    290 > 150lbs over the course of 15ish months

    stir fries and soups are your friends. you can eat to fullness every day and still not break 1200 calories if your meals are veggie and broth heavy. I recommend using cronometer to track your meals. I aimed for around 1200 calories a day but that's fairly low for most people so you may want to start off closer to 1600

    apart from that, lift so you don't look like a skinnyfat sack of shit when you reach your goal weight. I do strong lifts 5x5 but SS and PPL programs work. do cardio if you want to, but you may want to try something slower and lower impact like trail walking or hiking rather than running

    overall just know that it's going to take over a year and you're going to plateau several times, but so long as you maintain a consistent calorie deficit you'll be good

    I've lost 15lbs in 2 months on a -500 calorie deficit and lifting 3 times a week. You have to be really precise with the calorie counting. Small bowl of oats for breakfast, chicken/turkey breast with rice/potatoes/veggies almost everyday for dinner, protein shakes for supper. It just works.

    I lost 75lbs over the course of four years and have kept it off for three years now. My tip: don't set a goal, but build your systems and fundamentals.

    Learn how to cook healthy meals. Get into a habit of exercising on a fixed schedule and sleeping well. If you live healthy, the weight loss will happen automatically. If you plateau, take a step back and adjust the system. Maybe it's time to reduce what you eat. Maybe it's time to increase the amount you work out. Eventually you'll reach a balance point where you'll be a weight you're okay with, on an exercise schedule you can stick to, eating a diet you enjoy enough you can maintain in perpetuity. Once you get to that point, just keep living it.

    Systems vs goals is a big thing in life and can work with more than just weight loss.

    I lost 55 lbs in three months, if that counts. I became my own version of David Goggins before coming to know of the guy's existence. I just followed this rule of thumb: anytime I felt too lazy to do something, I just jumped on that shit straight away and did it immediatelly. I became a mad man regarding discipline. Went from gasping for air in the first minute of a jogging session to being able to run for hours.

      This is the dilemma I'm in. At my size now (280) it's still pretty difficult for me to do pretty much any strenuous exercise. I've thought about just dieting until I'm more easily able to do things, then go hardcore on the lifting. My only concern is that, despite never lifting regularly in my life, I have some fairly big muscles in my biceps just naturally. I'm concerned that if I wait to workout my all of my muscles will just eat themselves.

      Same as you. Lost my job so walked every day, down to 220 from 330. Cut out snacking after dinner and roughly tracked my cals just so I was aware of how much i was eating.

    I didn't have 100lbs to lose but I went from 88kg to 70kg in 6 months.

    Tips are everywhere on Google. Tips are mostly pointless, you know what you need to do (eat less, exercise more) so just do it.

    Tips regardless:
    -count calories, you would be surprised how bad certain things are and it makes it easier to say no to treats when you realise you could alleviate so much more hunger with a second dinner for the same calories
    -similar to the first one, learn to accept the feeling of hunger and see it as progress
    -bad drinks are the easiest way to slip up, no sugary drinks or alcohol.
    -try to 'plan' when you will experience hunger, for example to be hungry during work when your mind is distracted anyway and to go to bed hungry so you can sleep through the hunger
    -learn to accept/expect failures/slipups. Do not completely collapse and give up when they happen or completely punish yourself for them. Just try to do better tomorrow.
    -treat it like a game somewhat (if you like games), keep trying to push yourself further and further (but don't ignore key nutrients)

      I don't get how people can slip up or fail at weight loss. A slip up is something you have no control over. Stuffing your face with junk takes
      >order/buy it
      >drive home/wait for it to be delivered
      >cook/unpack it
      >eat it
      It takes preparation and time, you could have stopped at any time and it was a concious decision

        That's not what I meant but yeah, +500 cal intakes due to small slipups in consciousness (such as eating some shared junk at work, beers at a get together, one piece too many of a cake etc.)

        Not every slip-up requires a long drawn out process, it can just take 5s of zoning out or giving into your cravings. Even so, in your example, not everyone is in a financial situation where they 'could' just not eat something after they made a bad purchase, even in your example its mostly just a few seconds of relapse into a poor diet and not really a conscious decision.

    Find work that is like food. Walk a mile whenever the work thwarts you. Use the thinnest shoes you can get, and walk toe-first to engage more of your core. Train flexibility so your body gets used to holding onto your skin flabs tighter. Drink a lot of water with iodized salt in it. Supplement creatine. Eat fruits, vegetables, and meat first, eat whole grains second. Grains aren't evil, but they get dosed wrong most of the time because of how trivial they are to eat. Find some awkward utensil you can use, like chop sticks, so you have to work to eat, and prepare food that's enjoyable to eat that way. It's all about finding YOUR balance.

    Eat only Proteins and some vitamins, body makes fat on his own.

    Eat protein powder atleast 120g + another 100-200grams protein from meat or Substitution like Soja.
