i Have been trying to lose weight, I have stopped drinking Pepsi/coke and any other drinks like that, i don't drink coffee, i drink green tea. I go for 2 hr walks with my girl every other day, or whenever it is nice outside. I eat whole wheat foods (pasta's rice,bread) But i haven't been losing any weight!
I am currently 205 lbs, people say i don't look that big because i am so tall. But a couple years ago i was 125 lbs. I want to get back to that weight, and i don't want to starve myself while doing it or take any pills for that matter.
I am very active because my 21 month old keeps me on my toes! But i am running out of ideas how to lose some weight, i have tried pretty much everything! Help!

You are on track for losing weight the right way. Exercising and good food choices seem to be the hardest part. Sounds like you just need to lower your calorie intake. Find a BMR calculator, I like this site. This will tell you how many calories your body needs every day to keep functioning. Make sure to scroll down and see what different activity levels change the amount you burn.
One pound of fat is equal to 3500 calories, so for instance if you were to take in 1500 calories per day and your BMR says that you burn 2000 then that would be a deficit of 500 calories burned per day. 500 calories times 7 days a week would equal 3500 calories burned for that week, equaling 1 pound of fat. Of course this is just an example, and BMR is just an estimate but it does help to figure out a realistic goal. Good luck and keep up the good work!
