    Hi there Louisa,

    Welcome to the boards :wave:

    I have edited your post slightly because we ask people not to mention specific amounts of calories or weight as it can affect other people who might be struggling with their eating.

    You might find it helpful to have a look at our article on permanent weight loss - this goes into some detail about how to adopt an eating plan that you can keep up over a long period. It's part of our fitness and diet section which contains lots of useful info! The trouble with a diet which really restricts your calories and relies on an unsustainable amount of exercise is that you won't be able to keep it up, and you might well put the weight back on again when you start eating more. One of the best ways to lose weight is to make permanent healthy changes to your eating habits and combine that with an amount of exercise that you can fit into your life on a regular basis.

    And of course, everyone is different, so it probably isn't a good idea to compare yourself to your friends. Talking to your doctor can be really useful, as they can give you an idea of how many calories you should be consuming per day based on your current weight and the amount you want to lose.

    Hope this helps a bit - let us know how you're doing!

    I think you need to look at dieting and exercise as a lifestyle, not a crash diet. What you should focus on is learning a new way to live that is healthy and helps you be your best. A good plan of exercise and a healthy diet is going to be better in the long term. That may take a bit longer but down the road is the way to maintain and find the right path.
