  • I would say don't over excercise, it can make you hungry. Eat at least two meals a day, clean up after every meal. And get a hobbie like sewing, scrapbooking and try to get up and do something else if what you're doing does not keep your mind off food.
    This is how I lost from 190 down to 158. Now I am trying to loose down to 148.

  • p90x has good reviews... I started it lost 10 pounds in a month but then started moving and packed the dvd set because we had to be out of our apartment and our house is not ready yet. I'm planning to start again once we get settled in out house

  • You do not want to lose weight too fast. It is not healthy. You should only try to lose no more than 2 pounds a week.

  • layh41407 gave good advice about how fast you should do it. Please do not try products like Alli. Women have caused liver damage, and some have even died. The "medications" are not always safe. Your best bet is to continue like you are doing with diet and exercise. Pay attention to the glycemic index (Google it if you aren't familiar with that). If you want to try an organized diet plan, some good ones are South Beach and Weight Watchers. Good luck!

  • Get sick. I've had food poisioning and I've lost 10 pounds quickly. Just kidding though. I know some will come right back when I get rehydrated.

  • Start journaling all your food. When you put your food on a plate, divide it in half in your head. Half goes to veggies (not mashed potatoes, those are a strarch or carb) a quarter to protein and a quarter to carbs. Any snack should be fruit veggie or protein. sparkpeople is a great website and its free. Its not going to happen FAST though. Weight that drops FAST does not stay off.

  • That said I recently had lapband surgery this summer after battling weight my whole life. For me it was the only answer.
