    You're only supposed to lose 1-2 pounds a week to be losing at a healthy rate. It takes something like a 3500 calorie deficiency to lose one pound.

    Muscle also weighs more than fat. You cannot look at the scale exclusively. Take measurements and keep a record.

    BMI is bunk. My BMI has me as obese.

    Well, I've decided I'm going to do weight watchers for a while and see how that goes. I know a lot of people who have been successful on it. Just have to sign up after I pay my bills and my tuition.

    I'm going to keep that consult with that doctor as I'm curious to see what he has to say. I strongly agree with their "motto" that food is an addiction. I know weight gain is reliant on many other factors also, but that doesn't change the fact that many people find pleasure and satisfaction from food.

    SlideStop...I can only speak for what has worked for me. The diet of a Type-2 diabetic. The weight fell off. At one point I was concerned and asked my dr. If I needed to worry about hitting a stopping point and he said he didn't think it would be a problem. I hit that point and have stayed there for several months.
    I haven't counted a single calorie, I am never hungry (I actually consume a fair amount of food), nor did it cost me a dime. And I feel really good.
    This worked for me. I wish you success in finding a plan that will work for you.
