    Question How much weight can I lose in a year as an obese person?

    I currently weigh 144.5kgs/319 pounds and one my new years resolutions is to lose weight. I am wondering what is the recommended and most likely amount of weight I will lose in a year if I stay consistent with dieting and keeping a 500 calorie deficit?

    Could I go from 144.5kg to under 80kg?

    At 1% per week, it would take 60 weeks to reach under 80kg

    Ok, so I will say this... yes you can loose weight quickly at your current weight. to about 80kg and under? Eh that I can't say tbh.

    What amount of calories are you eating at the moment? Also, are you looking at light movement and/or doing some weight lifting to help with weight loss?

    For me I was about 280lbs/127kg back in early 2019. Between 2018 and 2019 I started off by walking more. I then went full on in the late spring of 2019. I started tracking my food, running, and walking even more. By the summer I was back into weight lifitng, and by the summer of 2020 I was down to 165lbs/74kg

    You might not hit a year for your goal, but what I did is I used a tracker like myfitnesspal to track my weight. I had set goals I aimed to hit, but all of them were attainable. Loose a specific weight each step for instance. Each time I adjusted my energy output, and my food consumption.
    Just keep on going.

    Given that, according to this thread of yours https://forum.bodybuilding.com/searc...hid=2792819523 you've lost a total of 1 pound in 4+ weeks it's going to take you a decade.

    Stop talking. Start doing. Don't be weak minded. Good luck.

    Its hard to take him seriously when he posts all the time, takes no advice, and then in the same vein as asking basic questions claims to bench 150kg. Less posts, less BS, more lifting.

    This thread and other weigh loss threads reminds me of the thread that was posted yesterday. The one where the 32 year old women with 2 kids thinks she DESERVES a husband making $500K a year...just because that is what they/she wants, without putting any effort into making it happen.

    have a good day

    Since most people give up on their resolutions with the first couple of weeks, there's a good chance you've already reached your year's worth of weight loss.

    A deficit of 500 and left at that amount of daily calories has diminishing returns. Once you lose 50 lbs you’re at maintenance and as you lose, the deficit becomes smaller and smaller and the loss becomes slower and slower.

    People make the mistake of not dropping calories as they lean out then think OMG my metabolism has crashed when the loss stops.

    No.

    A 500 calorie/day deficit will equal roughly one pound of fat loss per week so if you maintained that degree of a deficit for a year you will have lost roughly 50 pounds (22.7kg).

    At that rate it would take you nearly three years to lose 65kg.

    As others have said, a 500 calorie deficit will have you losing an average of one pound (0.45kg) a week, or about 23.5kg in a year, so down from 144.5kg to 121kg. You would need to adjust your intake doen every couple of months to maintain the same deficit.

    That would certainly be doable, but seeing as you're starting off obese, you can afford to lose weight faster without risking losing muscle. Up to 1.25% of bodyweight should be fine at first - which starts at 1.8kg (4lb) per week and would require a 2000 calorie deficit. I wouldn't do that for more than 8 weeks though and it's definitely not necessary to lose that fast. It's probably worth incorporating some diet breaks where you eat at maintenance rather than dieting non-stop for a year.
