i have been trying to lose weight since the middle on january 07 and i pretty much have a goal set...?

i started off weighing in at 175 :( ( i had been on the depo bc shot for 2 years which didnt help, made me gain a bunch) but i switched to the pill and i started walking at a fast pace and jogging what little bit i could since im a smoker....from then to now people have told me that i seem slimmer.....i am 19,female and 5 foot 7 inches...started off at 175 and now 160 (162 at the moment due to that certain time of the month) my goal is set to weigh about 135-140....is that a good weight for me to be? and how does my progress sound at this point? :D thanks

    Wow, you're doing great :)

    I think your goal sounds very reasonable. So far you have lost about 5 pounds per week. It's common to lose weight more quickly at first, so don't get discouraged if your weight loss slows down a bit. 1-2 pounds a week is still great.

    Keep it up!

    Check your BMI. There is a formula for that. Losing weight is not everything. Most importantly, a balance of mainly 3 factors, lead you a healthy lifestyle. They are amount/type of food, the amount of sleep & exercise. Good luck!!

    Sounds like you are doing pretty well. Keep it up. Add some variety to the exercise routine if you get bored.

    Good job!
