Hi, I need your help. I need to lose 130 pounds in 8 weeks. My sister is having her wedding and I’m her maid of honor and I need to lose weight before her wedding. Can you help? Thanks, Crystal. [via Ask Questions]
Let me get this straight: You want to lose 130 pounds in 8 weeks? To do that, to lose 130 pounds in 8 weeks, you need to lose a little more than 16 pounds a week. To put things into perspective, most people cannot even lose 20 pounds in one month, which calls for losing only 5 pounds a week.
In short, it is impossible to lose 130 pounds in 8 weeks. I do not think it is even possible to lose 130 pounds in 8 weeks with weight-loss surgery. How long does it take to lose 130 pounds? Assuming you can sustain losing 2 pounds a week for 65 consecutive weeks, it takes approximately 1 year and more than 4 months to lose that much weight.
