I'm 20, female, and currently 200lbs.. And hating it! Since September of last year I've put so much weight on, due to depression, medication, and basically, comfort eating.. I really wanna get back down to my original 'size 10' self before April 2013. I've heard a healthy weight loss is 2lbs a week. I want to lose around 50lbs before April next year (My 21st) 2lbs a week is 8lbs a month, and 8lbs x 7 months = 56. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think that's possible!
Now, I drink plenty of water and green tea, and eat things such as tuna, low fat soups and plenty of fruit, etc. I've also started taking multivitamin supplements.. Again, lemme know if I'm doing wrong there.
So basically, can I lose around 50lbs in 7 months, riding my bike, and watching what I eat? Of course I'll be adding cardio and strength training moderately as my health improves, just need a boost, and I'm thinking bike riding would be great for that.
