Dont be surprised to see you lose that weight a lot faster than 9 months. I thought i would be fine at 200 from 218. Once I past that, I realized i had more to go. If you work out 4 to 5 times a week (30 minutes minimum), you will see how fast that weight goes off. I dont diet like a madman. I dont want to be off the diet because I crave something. I will snack a little but i do much less. Working out will become addicting once you see the weight loss. I am now a regular at my club.
