    42lbs is the same as 3st. (stone). I normally say Stone as I think it is easier to understand my weight that way.

    I am not sure because ideally, the easiest and healthiest way to lose weight and reach their ideal BMI is by losing about 2 pounds a week.  In my opinion, it would take a year to completely lose the 3 stones WITHOUT starvation diet, WITHOUT being cranky, WITHOUT burst of food cheating binges. 

    The most realistic would be losing A STONE AND A HALF in six months.  This could EASILY BE DONE THROUGH food proportion control, eating the right foods, and even treating yourself once in a while, and minimal exercise like brisk walking and jumping jacks.

    In answer to cre8iveOne ... 3 stones is equivalent to 14 pounds in weight.

    I would say it's definitely possible, if your body is "in on it". It's easier for some people depending on a lot of factors. Generally said 2 pounds a week is a magic number, but it doesen't suit everybody.
    Often when you have a bigger startingweight the numbers also are bigger from the start.
