Aw thanks love. Everything will be okay and like that famous Ed Sheeran quote, “If it’s not okay, Then it’s not the end.” I’ve learned that nothing lasts forever and thats both the good and the bad so if this happens to be a tough time for you try to ride it out knowing better days are ahead. I think losing 40lbs in 4 months is totally possible to do in a HEALTHY way and I know this because I did it in the beginning of my journey.
First find your BMR:
Then make a plan on how and when you are going to workout. I would start with 4 days a week for 45 mins each of cardio. Have someone who works at your gym show you the workout equipment before you start lifting weights. If you don’t have access to a gym there are plenty of options you can do at home but getting your heart rate up by a taking a walk or jog is your best bet to start.
