Idk about other people but growing up I had no clue about what I wanted to do with my life that was through high school and now into my 20s but someone suggested to me to join the coast guard. So I did a little reading and I realized that that is what I was meant to do. Problem is I weighed 262 pounds at the start of my journey and now I’m at 240. I need to be 180 asap. I’m assuming I’m doing well at roughly 2 pounds a week. But I want to keep this momentum going. I’m lifting weights and now I’ve been doing 30 minutes of cardio almost twice a day with the weekend off. Is this a safe routine? David. [via Ask Questions]

Your assumption is correct, losing 2 pounds a week is a perfect rate of weight loss. To sustain losing weight at the same rate you need to do three things: First, knowledge is power, so read the following posts: How to lose 60 pounds and How to lose weight in 7 days. Second, if it works, work it – i.e., whatever you are doing seems to be working for you, do not change it and do not second-guess yourself. When things stop working, make changes, but not now.

Third, be consistent. To continue losing weight at a constant rate, you need to consistently follow your diet and exercise program. You do not need to obsess about every single detail, but make sure that you do your best to follow the plan without getting distracted by stuff that does not bring you closer to your target weight.

Fourth, is your current routine safe? I have no idea. I mean, generally speaking, moderate cardio (in the form of walking) and weightlifting is perfect for weight loss, but I am not your doctor and I have no way of knowing if your current diet and exercise program are safe for you, so it is very important that you consult with your doctor as soon as possible. Make a phone call right now and make an appointment with your doctor, describe what you are doing, and ask him or her if it is a safe program for you.
