You have to eat less calories than you burn. Get a fitbit and get at least 30 minutes of exercise in every day. I made excuses for years about how I couldn’t lose weight. The truth was I wasn’t working for it. Forget the fad diets also. Pick a calorie amount under what your burning in calories per day and stick with it. Track every calorie you eat. You will see results if you stick with it.

Well, the thing is you want to make a lifestyle change, not diet. You want to do something that you can sustain long term. Eat more veggies and fruit to your meals, eat smaller portions, drink water, and make sure you’re getting enough sleep. You may also have like a thyroid issue too, which can definitely keep you from losing weight.

The first few days are the hardest but it’s so easy once you get past the hard days

I’m 5’3 and weigh 260 and I’m currently dieting. I drink around 64 ounces of water per day and a protein shake for breakfast and one for lunch and then eat dinner. I also snack on blueberries and strawberries and I don’t eat sweets. I started the end of January and have lost 20 pounds. I also have Hashimotos Disease Thyroiditis. So it’s hard to get the weight off. Good luck!

I am like this too . I swear it’s my birth control causing the ridiculous cravings :thinking:… research “Tapping” find a holistic coach to get to the root of your cravings and work towards a plan that works for you remember ANY efforts count . Any movement is better than no movement , one cookie instead of 3, drink lots of water , stretch your body , etc .

Drink 8oz of water before you eat. Then if you are still hungry after your meal, drink more water.
Indulge in a sweet treat, but a small one. You don’t have to cut everything out, typically it’s more about portion control than anything else; unless you eat complete garbage all the time.

Get your bloods checked x

Just try drinking more water, lessen sugar, try to not eat before bed. Add some walking, as u feel comfortable and build from there

If you like pickles…i know it sounds weird but eat a couple pickles and it will kick the sweet craving. Also…I did the apple cider vinegar drink every day and that also helps burn fat too.

You have to exercise. Eat right and exercise.

Don’t think of anything as a diet- but more a lifestyle change. Slow and steady works better then jumping into something only to quit a few days or weeks later. I lost 70 pounds a few years ago, and it was over the course of a year or two. I started by cutting out soda, that made such a huge difference. If that’s to difficult only drink diet until you can ween yourself off. Then I cut out fast food. If that’s too difficult cut out fast food during the week until you can cut it out completely. Then it was high sugar foods. If that’s difficult, only allow yourself a treat on fridays. Then it was walking everyday, at least 30 minutes. Taking the stairs when you can. Baby steps. Then it was gym twice a week. Then three times. Then four times. Invest in yourself and hire a trainer if possible. If finances aren’t there, youtube is a great resource. Dedicate 30 min a day to a home workout. There’s no excuse unless you make one! That’s the best advice I have for anyone (I’m also a manager at a gym and hear people say stuff like this all the time! It’s totally possible, you’re in charge of your reality) :heart:

Im 5’8 and weigh 180. I dont look it but they said i needed to drop some pounds because of my blood pressure and my good cholesterol being too good making my bad cholesterol high. We drink a lot of water, no fried foods and honestly its all about portion control. Walking for 30 minutes a day will help too.

It’s all about your diet!!! 80 percent is diet. Count your calories. Drink water. That’s it.

Take a look at DDPY. I recommend looking up Arthur Bormann’s story on youtube. I would never have believed how much better I feel. I also have a link for 30 days free and discounted rate after that if you want to try it after you check it out.
