First of all how tall are you and what size frame do you have ie small medium or large
I don't diet, I eat healthy and once in a while I treat myself eat on moderation

Go to and setup a profile. Set your goals to maintain weight and do that for a couple weeks until you are making good food choices, then change your goals to losing weight. It is a valuable site and can help you greatly if you go at it honestly.

If you need help changing your habits I can give you some ideas on how to improve. Good luck to you!

I agree check online what your ideal HEALTHY weight is according to your height and body type before dropping any pounds it could end up being hugely unhealthy

You also must exercise in order to lose weight, especially when you plateau

My horse's feet are as swift as rolling thunder He carries me away from all my fears And when the world threatens to fall asunder His mane is there to wipe away my tears.

Instead of cutting foods out, try portion control. Make your portions slightly smaller and up the excercise! That helped my mum loads! She loves her food too much, and she tried every diet, healthy eating is another thing. Keep eating the foods you love, just in moderation and smaller portions and up the excercise!

Another reccomendation for

Healthy eating and lots of excercise is the key. keep fattening foods to a minimum or for a treat occasionally.

The more you excercise the more you can eat.

I was feeling hungry on the portion sizes so I upped my excercise to five nights a week from three nights a week. I can still lose weight but I am allowed more to eat. And I am still losing a healthy ammount each week. 1-2 lbs per week.

Skittles, my suggestions is to not look at weight loss as a diet. Think of it as a life-style change. The weight won't come off over night and if you want to keep it off when you get there, you need to have retrained yourself to live in that lifestyle.

The fries aren't going anywhere. They will be there for the rest of your life - now, while you are losing weight and when you are there and maintaining your weight. My thought is that you have to learn to live with them. That might come off a persnickity but that's not how it is meant. You can still have them, just have to learn when its okay and how often.

Do you have someone that you admire for a healthy lifestyle of weight loss or weight maintence? What I would suggest is that you try to emulate that person and learn all you can about living with unhealthy and tempting foods.

You can do it! You have to believe in your mind that you can and then begin to live it out. And then take it day by day. It won't happen overnight so don't get down on yourself if you do enduldge. Remember, it's a lifelong journey.

pretty much never have fries again, probably the worst food there is, short term diets are extreme, hard to stick to and only work short term.
You really have to change your lifestyle. Stop eating junk food, exercise more. It really is that simple.
