So I'm pretty obese - I'm around 5'7 and weigh 221.4 lbs as of today - down from 237 lbs. My goal is to lose a steady 8 lbs a month through a calorie controlled diet. If I meet that 8 lb / month goal by the end of 2018 I should be at a healthy weight for my height.
I just have to keep on it and not let myself be distracted. Inshallah!
