Lost a total of 104lbs in 12 months

Age: 26
Height: 5’7.5″
Success: 104lbs lost (269 to 165 in 12 months)

My entire loss was from CICO. I joined my local YMCA to start exercising last month and before that took up light walking, but nothing that really made much of a dent to be honest. The most important thing was logging my calories accurately and diligently and being as patient as I could muster since this shit takes time.

Lost a total of 35lbs in 8 months

Age: 25
Height: 5’6
Progress: 35lbs lost (170 to 135 in 8 months)

Honestly it was (and still is) 100% CiCo. Im at the gym 4x a week and enter everything I eat in my FitBit app. The eating part is the hardest. I always had (and still struggle with) a tendency to eat when Im bored. Sparkling water, celery and gum helps a lot.

I count everything I eat/drink with my fitbit and keep a minimum of a 500cal deficit a day.
