    I've lost 29lbs in 4 months just by calorie counting, haven't always been on it 100% and have had meals out and alcohol going way over calories on the odd occasion and 4 weeks of that I wasn't really being good at all, so only lost 3lbs that month, if I hadn't of done that I probably could have lost 35lbs'ish.

    I just use myfitnesspal to log what Im eating, its been working for me. I haven't done anything drastic, just made a few healthier choices, like new potato's instead of chips, adding salad to meals so the higher calorie stuff is reduced but salad or veg is added so it still fills me up and just cut out snacking between meals.

    Do some research on the various plans and forums on here and choose one that's going to fit best with your lifestyle. i do Slimming World as I can eat as much pasta, rice, noodles, potatoes, lean meat and fish, lentils, pulses, fat free dairy, fruit and veg as I want without any weighing or counting. It's a flexible plan that fits with family life and eating out, allows you a bit of what you fancy and it works for me. You'll need to choose what's going to work for you but I would say choose a plan that you will be able to follow for the rest of your life and not only until your big event. Because sure as anything you'll put it all back on again otherwise

    Hello there! welcome to the forum;-) Impossible is nothing and everything is achievable! You just need time and motivation. I think 1720 calories are maybe even too much. I do think that you can make it lower...somewhere up to 1500 calories per day. If to eat healthy food it is enough to stay active and don't hurt yourself. And of course you need to do sport!! for sure. Good luck to you!;-)

    As a fellow male (!) I can highly recommend the Slimming World Extra Easy plan. Us boys seem to lose fast on that and you dont really have to 'diet' just change a few small habits.
    Im just a boy, standing on the scales, asking them to drop.

    GOALS;
    1. Get into the 17s - Complete!
    2. 16s
    3. 15s
    4. 14s
    5. 13s
    6. Take a Minimins member out for a drink

    Found out on friday. I have mild non alcoholic fatty liver. Im nicknaming it junk food liver.

    even though ive changed my eating habits. The years of mainly junkfood has took its tole.

    I have to make sure i have a low fat low sugar diet so that will help my weightloss.

    My doctor seems to think my liver could be ok by xmas as long as i behave. Scary tho really.

    im not that overweight and im only 29. But if u abuse ur body. Thats what happens

    Congratulations on your losses. Maybe joining a program such as weight watchers would help? I know I've really been focusing in on making better choices, really upped my fruit and veg and pretty much I've cut out all greasy / high fat / high sugar foods. The recipe ideas on their website are really good if you're looking for alternatives to junk food (the quorn lamb pitta is really like a healthy kebab and the warbutons wrap pizzas are honestly as good if not better than dominoes.)
