  • 10 pounds in a month

    Is it possible, realistic and safe to lose 10 pounds in a month or this me expecting too much?

    I think you can lose 10 pounds in a month...but it all depends on how heavy you are. The more you weigh the more you'll lose. That said, if you're not super-overweight or obese, dropping 10 pounds in a month could be quite the challenge and likely won't be possible without making certain sacrifices that could just be unpleasant, like eating way less than you should.

      You can lose that much, but this will take a lot of dedication. Additionally, it will be easier to lose 10 pounds if you weigh more. The less you weigh, the harder it is for the weight to come off, quickly in a health way.

        I think you're expecting to much. It's not a matter of if its possible so much as is it possible and realistic for you. It's not worth it to lose 10 pounds in such a short period of time if it means you have to make drastic changes to your lifestyle that are going to be radical, miserable and that you know you have no intention of keeping up. Why put your body and your mental health through that?

        Instead, I think it would be best if you just focused on a smaller goal like 4 pounds, so losing a pound of fat (not water weight) a week. What do you think about that?

          Really? I had no idea that was even a thing. How much more would you have to weigh to lose more weight and why it is harder to lose weight when you weigh less? Especially if you're overweight and you have fat to spare?

            I think it has something to do with how hard it is to move around. I mean, if you think about it, if you go for a 30 minute walk and you're 300 pounds and if you go for a 30 minute walk and your 150, you're lugging around way more weight at 300, so the body has to burn more because it's hard to move that amount of weight. Plus, you have WAY more fat at 300 pounds (typically) so there's a lot more to lose. Of course, how fast you lose something does depend on the exercises you're doing, and other factors like your age, gender and height. 300 pounds on a man who is 6'2 is a lot different than 300 pounds on a man who is 5'10, if you get what I mean.
