A diet isn't punishment. A diet is a way to reward your body with the wholesome, nutritious food that it needs. Your body composition is a direct reflection of what you put in your mouth.

weren't you trolling the misc section last week?
no its impossible. if you lose 100 pounds you are gonna have loose skin. and losing 100 pounds in 5 months, and being lean, thats not gonna happen. i'd say no less than 8 months

I'm coming up on 120lbs lost, in a little over 7 months, and I consider what I did extreme, as in borderline insane. As in a 350+ lb guy with a lot of muscle mass eating 1000 cals a day and then burning it all doing cardio and weightlifting, and even going to the gym twice a day many times. (Still do sometimes) It was what I thought of when I went to sleep, what I thought of while sleeping, and what I thought of first thing when I woke up. I had everything planned days in advance. First 4 months or so, it was all I thought of and did. Not a drop of alchohol or soda to date.
When I decided to change, something switched inside of me, and I was disgusted. I felt like the real me was trapped in my body, and I did what it took to get rid of the fat ASAP. I didn't care about nothing else, and nothing would stop me. Not even the horrid shin splints I worked through in the beginning or having to work 12 hour days, and then to go to the gym afterwards.
I walked during my lunch at work. I went to the bathroom at the office that is 300+ feet away, instead of the one 10 feet away. I ran and walked at home. I even bought a 40lb training vest that I now use when I run or go for long walks.
Have I lost muscle? Probably...but..all of my lifts improved significantly. Most notably my dumbell bench press jumped from 55lb dumbells to now doing 95's for reps, and barbell bench press from about 185 for a few reps to now 225lbs for 8 reps (my personal record). My physique is starting to really sculpt. My bicep is visibly seperating, and I'm getting some awesome vascularity on my forearms. (I'm now under 20% body fat)
I wore XXXL shirts, now large shirts are loose. I wore 46 waist jeans, now 36 jeans are loose. My mile time has went from 12+ minutes, to almost under 7 minutes and I can run miles at a time.
Like I said, what I did was borderline insane. I worked HARD. But I am now bearing the fruits of my labor, and boy oh boy they are sweet and delicious fruits! My life is a complete 180 from what it was 7 months ago. I can't even put into words how I feel now. Today I am wearing an athletic fitted all black thermal, with really nice brooklyn jeans, and my staple cologne, and I feel like I have been molested by a bunch of women staring me down. I'm not exaggerating. In fact yesterday someone in the office whom I don't even know ran up to me and stopped me to let me know to keep doing what I am doing because I am looking great. It's moments like that where you feel like you are high on life...if you've never felt the high of life, I highly recommend it, nothing else like it.
I took the time to write all that out for you because I hope it will inspire you. Don't listen to people here who say you can't do it. You can do what ever you want to do, it just depends on how bad you want to do it. I was the worst of the worst. EVERY meal used to be fast food, and my job involves sitting on my ass all day. A horrible combination, that would surely lead to a young death if I did not change."The Mind is the Battleground"

Depends what your body fat is. You can lose 100lbs in 5 months if you diet hardcore and workout steadily but visible abs is a different story.NGA & IFPA Professional Bodybuilder

Pretty much impossible. I lost 85 lbs total from 270-185 currently (35%ish bf to 13.9% from hydrostatic testing). 50 of which was in a 5 month period. My skin is still pretty loose and Abs aren't really visible. Don't let that discourage you though. You'll still love the improvement regardless of whether or not you have visible abs.
