Back up again, but extenuating circumstances took hold. One step at a time.

2lbs is good. If it's going to be a long term thing then slow is good, you need to stay focused on the end game.

I need to lose weight too - changing medications seems to have changed everything else about my body. Good luck and keep fighting.

i have gradually fought my way down to a low calorie intake, which i believe is the key to weight management. all the fad diets in the world won't work if you eat too much. also, i have found that appetite resisted is appetite overcome. this is not for everyone, but it helped me.

i have dropped 60 lbs on a med, which the doc took away, i think he hated seeing me succeed. so now i'm doing it on my own, which is much harder, and took me about 3 months to wrangle down to my goal caloric intake. i'm now shedding about a pound a week, a little less some weeks which are stressful.

i just use calorie counting and good nutrition. eat a small amount more often. have a good breakfast, and only veggies for late nite snacks. pickles are a nice taste treat, and crunchy foods are good for the system. do NOT cut out all oils, or blockages may occur~!

best wishes to all who see themselves as trim and healthy~!

Good job! I have the same goal. It's May 18th, let's see if we can lose two more lbs between now and Memorial Day. I'm 151 lbs today (just checked it on the scale. I put on the weight when I was depressed but can usually shed it (with mind over matter) when I am more on the up side. Good luck!

Good job, trying to lose weight as well. It is important to remember that we are not just trying to lose weight, but body fat, and not just lose it, but shift our weight reference point a bit lower.
