For my fitness class we have to make concrete and measurable goals, but we aren’t allowed to count pounds because it isn’t always a very accurate measure of fitness because muscle weighs more than fat. Anyway I would like to lose some inches off my thighs, hips and stomach. And I wanted to know how many inches I should realistic try to lose in 10 weeks.
There are too many variables to answer your question. It depends on age, how big you are (height and weight), how much muscle mass you have, how much you can build, how much body fat you have, how much you have to lose, and what you are eating as well as your exercise program. It is also very individual. That said, I have seen clients lose up to 10 inches (overall) in that amount of time, but they were changing their diets in addition to exercise.
