    Lose 40 pounds in 3 months?

    Asked Mar 21, 2012, 06:03 PM — 22 Answers
    Hello, my name is Heather.. I would like to lose at most 40 pounds by mid-summer... I use to weigh 195 lbs before I got comfortable with my fiancé a few years back and now I weigh about 255 :( . He has taken me to fast food places so I've grown to like some of the foods from places such as McDonalds, Taco Bell, and Popeyes, even knowing how bad the food is. I wish to get back to 195 eventually but I can't seem to keep to a diet and exercise with being a full time college student and taking care of a family of 6 and sometimes my fiancé. And I can't find a job so I cannot afford to go to a public gym.. :( Please, Please, Please what should I do to lose weight? Someone please HELP ME!!

    I don't want to close this thread in case the OP wants more help. But there will be no more discussion of the bad advice given here from anyone.

    I apologize Scott. I only mentioned it here because Stella wasn't listening in the other threads where I've asked her to stop.

    As for the OP. I would highly recommend a complete physical from your doctor. Find out if you have any health risks. Then ask your doctor to recommend a healthy diet and exercise routine.

    You don't need to go to a gym to exercise. There are many things you can do at home. Going for a walk, bike riding, sit ups, or buying an exercise tape that you find fun and are willing to do every day.

    But none of these things should be done until you see your doctor. At 255 pounds your body is working hard, and there could already be some damage done. You need a clean bill of health before you start any diet or exercise routine.

    There is however one thing you can do right now. Cut out the fast food! That's only adding to your issues.

    If you don't have the willpower to cut out the McDonalds, and other fast food, then I fear that you'll fail before you even begin.

    Good luck. See your doctor! :)

    Likewise Blinded Panda and Lady Sam gave good advice right at the beginning. LadySam included a site.

    And there are also support groups - like Weight Watchers.
