-- How much weight do you want to lose?
My target is that i lose 35kg or 77lbs, as of now i weight 120kg or 254,5lbs

-- What is the timeframe for reaching your target weight?
About two months before physical class in college

-- How do you want to accomplish your goal (what methods do you want to use)?
For now, i cut down my calories and sugar intake and do jogging or walk for minimum time of 45 minutes, i also do fasting

-- Who or what can support you in reaching your goal?
A couple of my friends that see me grow "bigger" support me to be fit again, when i checked my body index it's about 39.3 which my weight status is obese, seeing the risk of chronic diseases and others like LDL cholesterol, low HDL cholesterol, and high blood pressure (correct me if im wrong) motivate me to lose my weight and be healthy, it'll be embarassing for me for such a young age (18).

-- How realistic is your goal?
before i got into college, i was in boarding school for senior high school, at that time i was about 110kg or 242,5lbs and i did everything i could like jogging, sit-up, plank this include not having dinner, breakfast with only tea and oatmeal, and for lunch is normal (mostly calories due to heavy activities during the day), in just two month my weight is about 87kg, so i suppose it's possible and realistic for me as long i'm highly motivated and dedicated to lose my weight (note that at that time i still do a medium amount of snacking and having sweet drinks)

-- When will you start?
I actually already started two days ago by pushing my limit by increasing my jog span to two minutes (usually walk (ten minutes)-jog (one minute)-walk (ten minutes)-jog (one minute) until i feel exhausted)
