Green Tea!!! I didnt read everything so I am sorry if I am double posting on somebody. I had two babies back to back and went from 155lbs to 230lbs.....ehhhhh.. I felt HORRIBLE. The things that I really changed each and every day was I would drink 3 cups of green tea a day and water. No pop or sweet tea. Maybe a cup of coffee. I always made sure to eat an apple or banana first thing in the morning and then maybe a few slices of bacon. Make sure you don't eat too late at night. I swear green tea really helps and it makes you feel alot better after you get used to drinking it. I am only down to 180lbs right now but I am working. Kinda hard with the nasty weather.

What's that?

its an exercise program with jillian michaels. You do 10 days of lesson 1, 10 days of lesson 2, and 10 days of lesson 3. Each lesson is only 27 minutes, but they really push you. You can find the lessons on youtube.

Interesting. I did buy some green tea a while back, but haven't used it. Might give it a try.

Because my father had to wear expensive suits, he couldn't afford to gain or lose more than 5 lbs. His way to control his weight was to use a bread and butter plate. His food had to fit on there, nothing piled high or overlapping. He ate a full diet but watched the quantities. He never touched food between meals. He was 6'3 and maintained between 185 and 190 lbs for years. He was also a great walker, preferring to leave the car at home and walking a good two miles to work and again on the return. When he retired he took up riding a bicycle and at 70 he looked younger than when he retired at 67.

Sorry I didn't read past page two, but I'm really feeling you. My diet efforts have gone to mediocre at best and I know I've gained weight. I've gained at least twenty pounds since my lowest weight and probably more since then. I don't know what's wrong. I try to jog at least once every day for about thirty minutes. I walk/jog alternately for at least three miles (trying to run a bit more every day).

I've been sick for the past week and so haven't ran. I feel so gross. I don't want to look at or weigh myself.

So, we're in the same boat.
