How To Lose 40 Pounds In Two Months With Katie

Image credits

My name is Katie Marie Peterson and I started my weight loss journey on March 31, 2013. After 2 months I managed to lose 40 pounds. When I began my journey I was 211 pounds and I was pretty devastated.

I’ve gone over that point and I’ve been working very hard and after 2 months I weighed 165.6 pounds which means I have lost 45.4 pounds. And that just feels incredible!

How To Lose 40 Pounds

I want to help anyone who’s trying to lose 40 pounds, pretty much telling what I’ve done. In the beginning, I wasn’t as good but now I’ve been into a routine. By the way, routines really help to lose weight.

Work Out Hard

I’ve been working out every single day, 7 days a week. I know that sounds a little bit overboard but if you’re trying to lose 40 pounds in 2 months and you don’t want to gain it back instantly, you really need to exercise hard.

I’ve been working out 2 hours on the elliptical every single day. At the beginning of my weight loss journey, I wasn’t able to work out as much as I am now. So I would maybe do 100 minutes a day and I didn’t realize there are resistance levels. I was doing level zero but I was still putting in the effort.

My eating wasn’t the best either, but if you really wanna lose even more weight than 40 pounds you need to start eating well from the very beginning. I write down every day what I eat and what I work out and it really helps me keep tracking. I looked at what I was eating and on my first day of working out I was like:

“Oh I did really good, I had a bean and chees burrito for lunch and for dinner I had a hand full of Fritos and two tacos. I did good for today.”

I wondered why I wasn’t losing as much weight. 🙂

I’ve been losing consistently 5 pounds every single week and in the 8th week, I lost 4 pounds in just 4 days. This means that what I’m doing is still working. This is why I wrote this post because I think this method will work on you too.

So if you want to achieve fast weight loss, you need to exercise regularly or even on a daily basis like me.

Eat Less And Healthy

I’ve been eating Cheerios like no other. They’re 110 calories per serving (one cup) and compare to other cereals they are low in calories and taste really great.

I’ve been having a bowl of Cheerios every breakfast and then for lunch I have a salad and some grapes. I know no one likes salad but if you want to lose 40 pounds in two months you need to eat some.

For dinner, I have another bowl of Cheerios and for snacks, I have a couple of fruits.

Today I had almost a full pack of grapes for myself and then ran three miles! Tonight is this low-calorie dish of broccoli, carrots, celery, onion, Brussels sprouts, egg whites, and pistachios. Not seasoning or oil! Here is a pic:

Two different delicious lunch options: quinoa wrap or tomato basil pesto sandwich. Photo below:

So if you want to lose 40 pounds in two months, I recommend you to:

  • Work out for 2 hours on elliptical every single day. And if you don’t like the elliptical, try a total body workout program.
  • Eat low-calorie cereals like Cheerios, a lot of salad, fruit as snacks, and veggies.

This program is extreme, so you’ll feel really tired. Be careful and if you don’t feel well, just stop this process. This is the way I’ve done it and it worked for me. Hope it works great for you too, and you’ll manage to lose 40 pounds in two months, as I did.

Here is a before and after picture. As you can see, I’m confident enough to leave my manly workout shorts aside. And yes, I have my boobs done. 🙂

  • Thank you very much for your story.

    It is hard to lose 40 pounds.

    But, if you follow all the rules, you can see how your pounds melt in just a few months.

    The most important steps are setting up a goal, changing diet and increasing physical activities.

  • the 17 day diet is MUCH more reasonable and you can lose close to this much weight also...your diet and exercise routine is super extreme...if you are constantly tired, you are not eating properly...and i'm reading so many comments from young kids on here it makes me sad/scared...The biggest "goal" you should have is AFTER you lose the weight, maintaining and keeping it off...a normal/healthy lifestyle...the worst thing people can do is yo-yo crash diet...

  • Starting 9/28/17. A little about me: 155 lb 16 year old female 5'4.
    Current bench: 95 pounds
    Current squat: 140 pounds

    Losing weight for boyfriends USMC graduation. Hopefully about 40 pounds. Will update 11/28/17

  • Can you weight lift on this? I'm not looking to build bulk muscle but I'm trying to train and get fit for the police academy and I can't afford to lose muscle mass. Thanks!

  • So in 13 and I weigh 140 pounds its just the start of summer and i wanna get the perfect bikkini body i do have stretch marks on my hips and around my belly and i would like to lose 20 or more pounds.

  • I'm 11 years old and 5 foot 2 I wan't to way 105 but I'm 141 I really need to loose this extra weight but it's hard I wan't to have that beach body for the pool because I basically live there in the summer

    • DONT FOLLOW THIS PLAN!!! especially if you're only 11 it is very unhealthy. I suggest that you ask your doctor for advice on a healthy weightloss diet. PLEASE DO NOT FOLLOW THIS PLAN. The reason I'm making a big deal out of it is that following plans like this can lead to very serious consequences especially to teens. It can lead you to an eating disorder which can kill you and will take over your life.

    • you can get started by walking or riding a bike every day, lots you can do besides an elliptical. You can also do 20 minutes 3x or 4x a day, it doesn't have to be two hours in a row. At your age you need to eat healthy food (brain food!) so don't cut out lean protein like whole eggs, chicken or fish. grab some nuts too every now and then, don't eat just salad. Good luck!

  • Im 5ft1 and im 140lb I really need to lose 40lbs So i can be at my ideal weight. I started working out but I feel my fat getting soft and squishy I dont know if thats a good thing or not ):

  • Instead of the elliptical using weight training would be a better benefit. Muscle burns more fat even when you finish. Increase lean protein and vegetables you can eat more and lose just as much weight.

    • She did not gain more than 10 lbs back to this day I believe, I follow her on instagram, youtube and snapchat
