How much are you wanting to lose? I have lost over 50lbs in the past 5 years, and I did it without pills, or heavy exercise. And the one important rule I have learned is to not rush it because you have a higher chance of gaining weight you lose right back. I would lose 5lbs then maintain it for a month and then lose more weight, even if it was only 2 lbs a month. As long as you are slowly losing it and maintaining it, you will find it easier to keep the weight off. I had tried every diet I could find, then I just decided to not rush it, I only have 15 lbs left to lose to be where my Dr wants me at. I have come down from a size 22 to a size 10.View Thread
