    I lost 60lbs in 2 YEARS! Ha ha, talk about slow, considering one guy on last night’s BL lost 41 pounds at the first weigh-in!

    As you said, the difference is that because it took me 2 whole years change my lifestyle I hardly noticed the changes I was making. I know I used to eat McDonald’s and Cinnabons frequently, but over the years have turned my habits upside down. I am now so used to eating healthy, whole, unprocesssed foods I can easily say I would NEVER seek out either of those anymore. I just don’t miss them.

      Me either, Irene. My lifestyle has changed too much. And it took me 2 years to lose 100!

    My parents sent me to a weight loss school when I was a teen. (http://www.wellspringacademies.com)

    I lost 90 pounds in 6 months. I also developed gallstones because of such a low fat diet. I had my gallbladder out and now I have issues with my digestive system that make life more difficult.

    Short summary: Haste makes waste (in the long run)

    I lost 80lbs in about 18 months. I have been at a plateu for a few months. I am still wanting to lose about 10lb more.

    I wrote about this on my blog awhile ago b/c I have had a few friends that used the “fast” appoarch.

    It has taken me 8 months to lose 50 lbs., and I want to lose another 50. That’s right at about 1 lb. a week. Sometimes I lost more, sometimes I lost nothing, and a few times I’ve gained a pound or 2 back and had to lose them again. I don’t regret it. I don’t starve myself, and while I try to stay right on track with my calorie intake during the week, I’m a little more lenient on weekends. It works for me. Hopefully I’ll have lost a full 100 lbs. by this time next year!!
