Question: Okay, here's a quick briefing. I'm 18 years old and last time I checked I weighed 230lbs but probably 242lbs now. I want to be 126lbs and I'm giving myself a full year to at least get up to 140lbs. So as my new years resolution, I'm going to change my life around. I'm going to cut out sugar (I'm an EXTREME sugar junkie) and anything else bad for me and pick up on the exercise. Oh, and I've also chosen to become a pescetarian. Now, besides all these changes, I'd like some advice from people who have lost weight too or from people who know ways that could help me reach my goal. Thanks guys, and please try and be as thorough as possible in your answers. :) Oh, I'm 5'3" just in case you may think 126lbs is too skinny. Its perfect for my height. :)

Okay basically you need a healthy lifestyle, and in bodybuilding terms you have to 'cut' the fat. Firstly I will tell you how to calculate your basic metabolic rate! (bodyweight in lbs) x 10 = 2420 2420 x (activity level) - [activity level is a number from 1.3 - 1.9] depending on how much you exercise I would suggest you go with 1.3, considering your calories are already reasonably high for a cut, raise if you feel you want more to eat and are struggling, with 1.9 being extreme, having a physical job such as firefighter and working out intense every day and even doing some cardio. So, 2420 x 1.3 = 3146 This is your basic metabolic rate, these calories will keep you at the weight you are at now. So you want to lose weight, -10% is a healthy deficit, so.. 3146 x 0.9 = 2831 That is the amount of calories, or roundabout, that you would need to eat to lose weight. Secondly I will lay out the kind of lifestyle you will need to lead to lose such a vast amount of weight.. Drink 7-8 glasses of water a day, and try to avoid sodas, juice is okay, in moderation, the reason water is so great is because your body does not have to do anything to it to extract water from it, because it IS WATER! :)), drinking water before meals will also cause you not to have such an appetite as it will fill your stomach. Sleep 7-8 hours a day to allow your body to recover and rebuild itself. Do 20-40 minutes of walking/ jogging/ jump rope or whatever every day, this is a great way to burn some calories, 20 minutes is the minimum, and I'm sure you can fit that into your day somewhere! You will obviously need to get protein, from fish and beans considering that you are a pescetarian, tuna will probably be the best choice for you. Carbohydrates come from vegetables like rice and potatoes, these are what give you energy, and eat enough healthy fats, but no saturated fats! Now, if you've got all that just keep motivated, take a picture of yourself every month, (the scales lie but the mirror does not!) and if you see changes you will be motivated to carry on. Find a goal or someone you want to look like and every time you think of having a binge just think of them and your long term health goals, finally good luck, you wanted thorough, I gave you thorough! :P

Diets are for those who are thick and tired of it. Let me put it this way. According to my girth, I should be a 90 foot Redwood. (Erma Bombeck) The United States is at war. And, we are losing that war. The economic consequences of obesity are destroying us. The annual cost of obesity is $95 - 100 BILLION dollars! Our health care systems, our nation's financial security and our health are in a state of emergency. http://www.cdc.gov/nccdphp/dnpa/obesity/economic_consequences.htm

Work out at the gym and get advice from a fitness trainer. Avoid eating fattening foods. Chances are, you are addicted to fat and it will give you headaches to avoid sugars and fats - these are called withdrawals. Eat natural foods like fruits and veggies. Avoid dressings, except balsamic vinaigrette and lemon juice. Don't drink soda, not even diet. It will make you work harder to gain the same results. Be happy. Be a loser!
