I changed up my workout routine to include more cardio and also strength training.
Did it by doing bootcamp 3 x's a week and on off days do biking or zumba.

Weight Watchers. You learn to eat in the real world.

Unless you have a compelling problem, like food allergies or sensitivities, don't cut food groups out of your diet. Learn to eat in a healthy manner--good habits are as hard to break as bad ones.

Exercise is very important. Find something you like, then mix it up with other forms of exercise. Variety is good for your body. Generally, a mix of cardio, weight training and stretching is good, but you will find what works for you. I spin, weight train and do yoga two times a week each.

Good luck!

I'll pass along the best wisdom I've gleaned in my own 10-pound journey:

First, change what you eat. Sugar is enemy #1. And it's in everything! Lots of vegetables, brown rice or quinoa instead of sugary starchy carbs, and protein. I eat protein at every meal. 1 whole egg + egg whites for breakfast, chicken and vegetables for lunch, chicken, vegetables and brown rice for dinner...I may turn into a chicken someday but damn it, it's working. Don't drink your calories. We often don't think of how many calories we consume as a beverage: coffee loaded with cream & sugar, sodas, juices/smoothies, etc. Drink water, and if you want flavor and like tea, I drink iced tea sweetened with stevia extract rather than sugar. Have a cheat meal every week where you eat what you want, so you don't feel deprived.

Next is workouts. Strength training is vital to maintain muscle and get your metabolism up. Yes, cardio burns fat but it also eats up muscle. I do a mix of the two; strength training 2x per week and cardio 2x per week.

Remember that you can't out-exercise a bad diet. This is how I screwed myself before...I used to go to the gym 4-5 days per week and I was building muscle like crazy, but I was getting bigger! because all the muscle was blanketed under a layer of fat---I just ate MORE because I figured I was working out, so I deserved it. No more. I focus on eating right as #1.

I should clarify:
I don't eat bread/pasta made from traditional wheat flour.

I make my own bread using nut/seed flour and use zucchini and daikon as noodle alternatives.

Like Gaby I avoid wheat, sugar, and starch and processed foods. I also limit fruit. All of this to control my diabetes and as a bonus I've lost 35 pounds. The only thing I miss is being able to have unlimited fruit but then again diabetes

I lost 10 pounds last month by getting a bad cold. I had a sore throat and cough and no appetite for 2 weeks.


Keep calm and carry on.

I have maintained my weight loss for the past 3 years.
I lost 55+ lbs over the course of 8 months by:
~ eating protein, low carbs (<60 grams daily, tried to keep to <30 grams)
~ a modified Dr. Atkins plan
~ My preferred meat is white chicken breast
~ I watched caloric intake, too (but I think many people would advise against what I consumed -- too little), less than 1000 calories daily,
~ I increased walking daily (I have severe arthritis in my feet) so this was and is a challenge
~ I joined Curves for a year
~ I continue to eat salad daily
~ 1 scrambled egg daily with a bit of cheese
~ I continue to keep intake of bread to one English muffin daily (or 2 slices bread)
~ LOTS OF WATER !!!

I also stopped drinking alcohol entirely.

Good Luck!
You will feel so much better!

Yes, I counted calories but did it using the app LoseIt. It worked great! You can set your own pace, and it's easy to use.

I'm down 42 pounds since July. What worked for me was Zumba, walking, and counting calories. I bought a fitbit pedometer, and use My fitness pal

I count calories and log EVERYTHING I put into my mouth. I also try to do a meal plan at the beginning of the week so I have my dinners planned and can work backward and allocate lunch and breakfast calories based on dinner plans.

40 pounds down, a bunch to go!

70 pounds for me and 60 for my husband in a year and a half. We cut out sugar and flour and we get our carb intake from vegetables and fruit with extreme caution over higher sugar fruits and high carb veggies. We eat protein with every meal and try to get our fat intake from good sources, like avocado, macadamia, etc. We both feel great and the change in diet has made a huge difference in my husband's issues with IBS. In addition, we both have more energy and feel better than we ever have. No more sugar highs and crashes. No more reaching for carbs for energy. I wish we had done this 20 years ago. We'll never go back to eating the way we used to. I now play on the playground with my granddaughter and can actually catch her when she runs.

3 to 4 pounds per week.

It works. It's boring but it's only 3 days.
