  • I have had a lot of success with portion control. I use the smaller salad plates so it can look like your plate is super full but it is still a lot less then you would pack on to a full sized dinner plate. If I have a craving I give in to it otherwise later I would binge. I hope this helps and good luck!

  • weight watchers online, I swear by it. it's easy. the first time i did it I lost 17 pounds right away and never even worked out. I quit though because I started a new job and i was only 19 so i wasn't used to the fulltime job and i just got away from it. then i got pregnant. but now i'm back on it. they have promos all the time so its free to join and its like $17 a month. they have other plans too. i just love it.
    now I"m running almost a mile 5 days a week.

  • I'm eating clean and running, and I've lost 60 lbs in about a year. There's a group on here with some great resources listed, and clean eating basics. I'd highly recommend it. It's very safe and all about balance, eliminating processed foods and portion control.
