100 Pounds!!!! That is too much too fast.  Its not healthy.  There is no magic cure.  Check out GAIAMTV.com
This has helped me a lot.  Unfortunately it takes some work.  There is no magic cure to loose a bunch of weight over night.  Unless you take up smoking crack or meth and even then it is highly un likely that you will loose 100 pounds is 3 months.  It's time to start working out.  The weight should start coming off of you quickly if you jump right in and start taking action.  I have struggles with my weight all of my life.  I am currently working on getting to my goal weight that I have YET to get down to.  It takes determination and patience.  But, it is ok if you struggle, it is ok if you mess up and get off track.  Like right now, the past 3 weeks I have been eating pretty much ALL Sugar.  I am working of getting off of Methadone and I think the taper is causing me to crave sugar.  It *****, I just lost around 8 pounds and I am afraid I am going to gain it all back.
What are your eating habit like?  What do you eat?  Message me and I can help you with meal plans.  I also just started school where I am studying to be an advanced yoga teacher, holistic Nutritionist and Life Coach.  So all of this stuff is a passion of mine and I believe I can help you.  You have got to get started on some light exercise.  Do you do any physical activities?


You can do this!


I hope to hear from you.

The Peak 8 routine it will quickly raise your heart rate 8 times for very short bursts, with a cooling down period in between. Ideally you’ll be sprinting or cycling full throttle for 30 seconds with a 90 second cool down in between each outburst.

This is the fastest way to lose fat and build muscle in the body. Peak 8 actually stimulates the growth hormone in the body. I encourage you to visit Dr Mercola’s site to learn more about Peak 8 fitness because I personally feel that it is one of the best ways to exercise, especially considering the speed at which you can lose fat and build muscle.

I highly recommend you read this article and watch the videos on the page. It will give you all the information you need to know about Peak 8 – Flood Your Body With This “Youth Hormone” In Just 20 Minutes

What you eat after Peak 8 training does matter

It’s recommended that you do not eat sugar or carbohydrate for 2 hours after the Peak 8 exercise because these foods can impact the release of the growth hormone in the body. The links are http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zy7j9FRiJpg&list=PL9FxWnfq1Oyo9pHHUPHeQne4iqoZ4zTN_



Figure your heart rate by this formula
220- your age 37 = 183 that's your max. heart rate! you should try to get your heart rate between 65% & 85% of your max. that would be 119-155.
You can buy a heart rate monitor for about $50-$60.

You burn 30 percent more fat from doing cardio after a weights session as opposed to cardio on its own.
Before doing anything get the OK from your doctor!!
