Yeah, that never works for me. I have a goal weight and a date i would like to achieve it. I think that puts a lot of pressure on you. I just strive to continue working out in the morning and evening, eating healthy 90% of the time and just feel good about the progress I am making. It may not show on the scale but i can tell by the way my clothes fit. It's all good.

I get myself in trouble fast when I put a weight goal by a date. It has NEVER worked for me. I have to take it one day at a time and just work each day and try to stay away from goal setting on weight for me. Goal setting for me is to go to the gym X number of days - etc.

Learning to let go is hard, but it gets easier. I am not getting older just better!

If it’s only for two months I’d recommend keto with intermittent fasting and lots of water (enough for body weight, calculators online). 🍀

It can be done with staying within calorie range and hard work at exercising to create a large calorie deficit. But be sure to eat enough calories to fuel the workouts

I'm participating in an even where there is a weight limit. I cannot back out, so I don't really have a choice.

It's dumb and short-sighted, but here we are.

I can’t even begin to understand why you “must” lose 50# in 2 months. Be safe about it.

Hello,

As you already seem to realize, that is just not a reasonable goal to want to lose so much in so short a time--not to mention, it's not healthy nor safe. I can only recommend that you set a realistic goal (say 2 pounds per week) and work toward that instead of setting yourself up for failure.

Wishing you all the best.

I need to lose 50 lbs in a little over two months.

Yes, I know that's a dumb goal. Unfortunately I don't have a choice. It's not for something frivolous, like trying to fit into a dress or something. It's an absolute must.

I also know it's unhealthy, I'll likely gain it back, etc. This isn't the way I wanted to do it, but here we are. 😒
