I, too, have started dieting. I stand 5'11 at about 200 pounds and I feel disgusting. I've taken it upon myself to drop down to 160 so I can try to dress as Jem for Halloween but it's going to be a weird road because I need to lose a lot of muscle to get the physique I want. However, I have no idea what I am doing so I just decided to drop down to 400ish calories a day. It'll either work or I'll end up in the ICU or both. Best of luck to us both!
