    3 stones = 42 lbs is far too much to lose in 3 months, unless you're extremely overweight which I don't think you are.

    Weight loss is just sticking to a deficit continuously over a long period of time.

    To lose 42 lbs in 3 months would mean that you're starving and/ or over working your body through exercise. Neither is healthy.

    Stick to losing 1lbs-2lbs per week, in that amount of time you could lose about 24lbs, that is a huge difference in itself.

    Yeah its possible, I lost about 3 stone from september till xmas break when i started uni, wasnt healthy in hindsight but i suppose just listen to what your body tells you

    If you put a lot of efford can work. It only depends from you. You can use free calorie counter Fitatu to control what you eat during the day cause this is very important.
    Cant live on bread and water and have all the energy to do the exercises. Good luck anyways!
