  • The ONLY thing that I have found that really works for me is Weight Watchers. I joined and found out how many points I could have each day. I really haven't went back, but I am following it. If you buy the Smart One's dinners, it's very easy to keep track of your points. I lost 5 lbs my first week.

  • I have lost 40 pounds by following the Mayo Clinic Diet. The book is really colorful and easy to follow. It actually teaches you habits to start, break, and live by. It also teaches you the importance of journaling EVERYTHING that goes in your mouth. You'd really be surprised at the hidden bites you forget about.

  • I started counting calories and writing down everything I ate and stuck to 1500 calories per day. I also started working out for 45-60 minutes 5 days per week with easy things like the Wii Fit and exercises off the TV. As I got more fit I progressed to harder workouts and lost 30 pounds in 7 months.

  • I lost 160 pounds by exercising daily and eating a balanced diet. You need to make sure you are consuming less calories than you are taking in. Cutting out soda, processed foods and sugary foods is a start. I would see if you could meet with a nutritionist who can help you figure out a sensible diet for you. I thought eating pork chops, mashed potatoes w/gravy and green beans cooked in bacon and its drippings was healthy I have not eaten that stuff in years. So many really have no clue what is healthy and what isn't. You can also look online on nutrition sites to get some ideas on how to change your diet.
